    Thanks tim,

    Too bad that the explanation/solution is only available to "contract users" and not to everyone

    I am getting the exact same error, but I am not running Oracle 10g, only running the Oracle agent. Wondering if it's truly caused by an Oracle bug or something related to the fiber adapters or kernel.

    The bug number as filed by Oracle is BugID 4955208
    This bug is specifically found with Oracle Enterprise Manager running on Solaris Operating System.

    https://metalink.oracle.com/metalink/plsql/per_bug.monitorBug?p_bug_id=4955208

    Workaround
    1. Ignore the entries in the messages file, but the files are being filled everyday by the agent.
    2. If the grid agent is stopped, then it is observed that these messages also disappear.
