Issue/Introduction

Error similar to the following is seen:
YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS.MMMZ cpu###:#######)nvmetcp:nt_ReceiveC2HData:1225 [ctlr ###, queue #] Failed to receive data digest: Failure

Digest is a NVMe feature for error checking. It can be enabled for data and header, but is disabled by default.

Environment

VMware vSphere ESXi 7.0.x

Resolution

Current workaround is to disable data digest for all targets.

Fix for the underlying cause exists in 8.0.1 and is expected to be backported in release 7.0U3P09
