Unfortunately, the error recovery routine only increments a count of the number of errors detected.
While that is a useful granular test, a more thorough test could be constructed using a Test Adapter to send unintended messages to either host on that Fibre Channel network to test the robustness and error recovery routines. Besides performing all legal operations, the Test Adapter as an initiator function or with target emulation software could be employed to produce aberrant behavior in the Fibre Channel network.
