User Response

Complete the following steps:

  1. If the compute node has recently been installed, moved, serviced, or upgraded, verify that the DIMM is properly seated and visually verify that there is no foreign material in any DIMM connector on that memory channel. If either of these conditions is found, correct and retry with the same DIMM. (Note: The event Log might contain a recent 00580A4 event denoting detected change in DIMM population that could be related to this problem.)
  2. If no problem is observed on the DIMM connectors or the problem persists, replace the DIMM identified by LightPath and/or event log entry.
  3. If problem recurs on the same DIMM connector, replace the other DIMMs on the same memory channel.
  4. Check the IBM support site for an applicable service bulletin or firmware update that applies to this memory error.
  5. If problem recurs on the same DIMM connector, inspect connector for damage. If found, replace the system board.
  6. Replace the affected processor.
  7. Replace system board.
