UEFI (POST) error codes

This section details the UEFI (POST) error codes.

UEFI (POST) diagnostic error codes can be generated when the server starts up or while the server is running. UEFI (POST) codes are logged in the Integrated Management Module II (IMM2) event log in the server.

For each event code, the following fields are displayed:

Event identifier
An identifier that uniquely identifies an event.
Event description
The logged message string that appears for an event.
Additional information to explain why the event occurred.
An indication of the level of concern for the condition. The severity is abbreviated in the event log to the first character. The following severities can be displayed:

InformationalAn informational message is something that was recorded for audit purposes, usually a user action or a change of states that is normal behavior.

ErrorAn error typically indicates a failure or critical condition that impairs service or an expected function.
User response
Indicate the actions that you should take to resolve the event.

Perform the steps listed in this section in the order shown until the problem is solved. After you perform all of the actions that are described in this field, if you cannot solve the problem, contact IBM support.
