The past few days I've been setting up a used Dell PowerEdge 2950 server. It's been running fine until just now, when it suddenly stopped while running a fairly heavy task (
svnadmin verify). The LCD was and is showing the following message:
PowerEdge 2950 E1422 CPU Machine Chk E2118 Fatal NB Mem CRC
Now, the memory error E2118 seems straightforward. One of the banks is probably broken. I'm running memtest right now. Update: Well, memtest didn't find any errors, so it's not that easy.
E1422, less so. Is this likely a separate problem, or just a result of E2118? Googling for this code says "update the BIOS" which isn't very specific as to the cause of the problem.
