Action
1. Make sure that:
• No error LEDs are lit on the operator information panel or on the DIMM.
• Memory mirroring does not account for the discrepancy.
• The memory modules are seated correctly.
• You have installed the correct type of memory.
• If you changed the memory, you updated the memory configuration in the
Setup Utility program.
• All banks of memory are enabled. The server might have automatically
disabled a memory bank when it detected a problem, or a memory bank
might have been manually disabled.
2. Check the POST event log for DIMM error messages:
• If a DIMM was disabled by a systems-management interrupt (SMI), replace
the DIMM.
• If a DIMM was disabled by the user or by POST, run the Setup Utility program
and enable the DIMM.
3. Make sure that there is no memory mismatch when the server is at the minimum
memory configuration.
4. Add one pair of DIMMs at a time, making sure that the DIMMs in each pair
are matching.
5. Reseat the DIMMs.
6. Replace the DIMMs in step 5 on page 114, one at a time, in the order shown,
restarting the server each time.
1. Reseat the DIMMs; then, restart the server.
2. Replace the lowest-numbered DIMMs with identical known good DIMMs;
then, restart the server. Repeat as necessary. If the failures continue after all
identified pairs are replaced, go to step 4 on page 114.
3. Return the removed DIMMs, one pair at a time, to their original connectors,
restarting the server after each pair, until a pair fails. Replace each DIMM in the
failed pair with an identical known good DIMM, restarting the server after you
reinstall each DIMM. Replace the failed DIMM. Repeat step 3 on page 114 until
you have tested all removed DIMMs.
4. (Trained service technician only) Replace the system board.
