We're running VMWare ESXI 6.5 on an Intel S2600CW server with two Xeon 2620 v3 and we've been seeing this error. I tried to open a case online but I there were any good topic options to choose from. I've updated the firmware to the latest as of 1/29/19 and the error still occurs. What can I do to fix this or is it a motherboard fault?
The warnings for the FAN is because I took out the 2nd CPU and 2nd FAN. I also noticed the DIMM Thermal Margins aren't listed because I've been testing with different DIMMs installed and what not.
We have two 32GB DIMMs (currently taken out) with serial number: Samsung 32GB 4DRx4 PC4-2133P M386A4G40DM0-CPB
and another two 32GB DIMMs: Manufacturer: "Hynix"
Part Number: "HMA84GL7AMR4N-TF"
@Jose_Intel let me know if you need anything else.
One final update, it looks like if a bank is empty, VMWare will throw a DIMM thermal warning error message, I saw it for 2, 3, and 4 since I only have RAM in the in A1 and B1 for the first CPU.
Hi @Jose_Intel, after some further testing, it seems that if each bank of RAM is populated with a stick of RAM then the DIMM Thermal Margins report correctly in VMWare with no warnings. I find this odd because I thought we wanted dual channel RAM (so two slots used in a bank for each CPU, and then two other banks are left empty). Is this normal?
