Logs flooded with "AER: Multiple Corrected error received: 0000:00:01.0"


Apr 15, 2019
Hi everyone,

I have a problem on my new Proxmox server. The logs are flooded with these lines:
Oct  3 19:22:42 proxmox kernel: [   99.530012] pcieport 0000:00:01.0: AER: Multiple Corrected error received: 0000:00:01.0
Oct  3 19:22:42 proxmox kernel: [   99.530016] pcieport 0000:00:01.0: PCIe Bus Error: severity=Corrected, type=Data Link Layer, (Transmitter ID)
Oct  3 19:22:42 proxmox kernel: [   99.530164] pcieport 0000:00:01.0:   device [8086:1901] error status/mask=00001000/00002000
Oct  3 19:22:42 proxmox kernel: [   99.531022] pcieport 0000:00:01.0:    [12] Timeout

when I do lspci -v I can see that 00:01.0 is:
00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Skylake PCIe Controller (x16) (rev 07) (prog-if 00 [Normal decode])

Anyone know the reason of these errors and how I can solve them ?

Thanks for your help !
I've "solved" it by editing /etc/default/grub
and in GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT I added pci=nommconf and I no longer have the issue.

Is it recommended and safe ?

Also had this issue on a 2tb Samsung 980 pro + old i7-8550
Was able to do the above edit by notarobot and also run update-grub
Believe this is due to pcie generational issues from 3 to 4? Not 100% sure - additional info
