I have a HP Pro Liant DL380G7 and a VMWare ESXi installed on it. In configuration tab of vSphere client inventory Memory Status is Warning with this message "System Board 8 Memory: Correctable ECC logging limit reached - Assert".
Is it serious? How can i correct it?

Thank you

It's just an ECC ram error. It means that the threshold for error correction on one of your DIMMS has been exceeded. This is a warranty issue, so call it in to HP and they'll send you a new memory module.

Also see: How seriously should I take ECC correctable error warnings?

There's probably an amber light on the front panel indicating what DIMM is bad too. – Chris S Nov 29 '11 at 18:44

There is now a BIOS upgrade to fix this.
