Re: crc error

1) CRC: Cyclic Redunancy Check, usually indicates a layer 1 problem, bits being corrupted in transit.  Every packet sent has a checksum that is computed by the transmitter.  If the checksum calculation does not match at the receiver, bits must have been corrupted so the packets are discarded.

2) A switch will drop a packet if it is corrupted, if there is no buffer space to receive the packet, or if any number of other error conditions occur

3) A switch will (generally) pick the primary address of the interface closest to the destination address for traffic originating from the switch.

4) Buffer memory is not a simple answer, see

What is the underlying problem?
