    We have been slowly replacing some Cisco Switches with Juniper EX2300 across our campus. Over the past two months we have replaced 18 and out of those 18 we had three all of sudden report some critical errors.  These errors were reported to our Solarwinds/Orion system. 

    7/4/2022 9:56:46 PM Critical kernel: bcmrng0: NIST_FAIL_IRQ: 0
    7/4/2022 9:56:46 PM Critical kernel: bcmrng0: dev.bcmrng.#.underflow_maxcycle: 2

    7/4/2022 9:56:46 PM Critical kernel: bcmrng0: RNG_TOTAL_BIT_COUNT: 4294967295


    All of the switches are:  Model: ex2300-48p / Junos: 20.4R3-S3.4


    I have searched as far as I could trying to find out what could cause this and if its an issue or just a fluke instance. During the time the switches reported these errors there was no usage on them.

    Any information or help or ideas will be greatly appreciated.
