PECI over DMI Interface Error

Jump to solution

Hi All,

Does anybody have any information about this error?

We have 3x Brand new S2600WTTR Intel Servers and all 3 are producing this error every few weeks:

SPS FW Health reports SPS Health event type FW status. PECI over DMI interface error. Recovery via CPU Host reset or platform reset. DMI timeout of PECI request.

This is causing a hard reset on each of the systems.

If anyone has any more info on what would be causing this it would be greatly appreciated

Hello Demandred,

 

 

It seems that the error comes from the Management Engine.

 

 

I was able to find more information about this in our http://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/motherboards/server/sb/s2600v3_systemeventl... System Event Log Troubleshooting Guide.

 

 

Due to the nature of the issue, and the amount of systems impacted. I would recommend contacting our support group directly as they may request to have an entire log file to review this issue.

Did you ever resolve this issue? We're getting the exact same symptoms on a Dell PowerEdge R530 with 2 Xeon E5-2603 v4 CPUs.

I submitted a request to Intel but got the brush off saying it's a Dell system, contact them. To reiterate, we are getting the exact same symptoms on a Dell machine, so I'd really like to know of any remedial action taken. You can even send it to me in a private message if you don't want to share this information publicly.

Reading the Intel CPU errata, there are known issues with the CPUs we are using which Intel has marked as "No fix" so I'm primarily wondering if a CPU exchange is our best (only?) recourse.

Thanks,

Colin

We exchanged our Broadwell 2603v4 CPUs for slightly older Haswell 2620v3 versions and since then haven't had any more spontaneous reboots.
