Any idea of what this error
E211 SBE LOG DISABLE DIMM6 could mean? Anyone have experienced this?
I know that it sound pretty obvious, that is the 6th bank of my memory, and guest what:
- I have already changed the order of the RAM modules. Same error on the same DIMM slot
- Dell already replaced the MOBO with a new one. RAM modules connected on different order, same error. Already cleaned up the logs with the OMSA livecd.
- Boot to memtest+ shows nothing
- All possible firmwares on this Motherboard are up-to-date
It could be another component or a firmware issue?
Dell is taking a look too, but found nothing at the system logs created by the OMSA.
A clear symptom is that, the error starts after one hour of operation. The operating system on this hardware is ESXi 5.0.1. No system crash has resulted because of this error.
Edit: I have cleaned the bios logs through
/opt/dell/dset/clearesm.sh (OMSA liveCD) on the new mobo, rebooted into memtest+(still on livecd) and after 20 minutes the display turned on the error message and memtest found no errors...
./dcicfg32 command=clearmemfailures neither the BCM clear on the Bios(Control + E during the post -> System event log menu -> Clear system event log) seems to resolve the question. After 20 minutes of operation, the error comes back.
Edit 3: MOBO was changed(see above) and both had/have the same error. Swap memory positions or use memory of other 2950 server changes nothing on the error.
