Publication Date:  2016-04-19 Views:  340 Downloads:  0
Issue Description

PSOD happened in RH2288H V3.

Handling Process

1.       There are many DIMM030 Corrected Errors from BMC log.

CPU:0 (socket:CPU1)    core:Uncore    LogType:MCA BANK8    (HA1)    MCA mode:Corrupt Data Containment/Poison

Error type:Corrected Errors

MCACODE:0x0091 (Data Read Error: {Memory-read-error}_CHANNEL{1}_ERR)

MSCODE:0x0001 (Memory Read Error)

HA1 generated an eMCA event

Address Mode:Segment Offset    Address: 0xf0dfc70c0(Dimm slot:0 [DIMM030])

CMCI Threshold: 1    Count:1(No Tracking)

2.       Before PSOD happened, there is ” MCA error detected via CMCI” printed in ESX logs, which are caused by Corrected Errors of DIMM .

4.       On the above VMware logs, we find it is known issue of VMware. The link of vmware kb is :





Root Cause

A known bug of VMware ESXi 5.5.0 (build-2403361) was caused by many DIMM030 Corrected Errors.


1.        Replace DIMM030.

2.       Install VMware patch to fix the bug as the following link of vmware KB:
