A DIMM has failed the POST memory test. DIMM Failed Memory Test



User Response

Complete the following steps:

  1. You must AC-cycle the system to re-enable the affected DIMM connector or re-enable manually using the Setup utility.
  2. If the compute node has been recently installed, serviced, moved, or upgraded, check to ensure that DIMMs are firmly seated and that no foreign material can be seen in the DIMM connector. If either condition is observed, 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.)
  3. If problem persists, replace the DIMM identified by LightPath and/or event log entry.
  4. If problem recurs on the same DIMM connector, swap the other DIMMs on the same memory channel across channels one at a time to a different memory channel or processor. If problem follows a moved DIMM to a different memory channel, replace that DIMM.
  5. Check the IBM support site for an applicable service bulletin or firmware update that applies to this memory error.
  6. If problem stays with the original DIMM connector, re-inspect DIMM connector for foreign material and remove, if found. If connector is damaged, replace system board.
  7. Remove the affected processor and inspect the processor socket pins for damaged or mis-aligned pins. If damage is found, or this is an upgrade processor, replace the system board. If there are multiple processors, swap them to move affected processor to another processor socket and retry. If problem follows the affected processor (or there is only one processor), replace the affected processor.
  8. Replace the system board.
