Persistent correctable memory error limit

Asked By 60 points N/A Posted on -

I have this issue on my Dell PowerEdge Server model R720 “ Persistent correctable memory error”. I turned off the server and check all the memory was properly seated. Then I again turn on then the error message was gone. This happens four times already so I am seeking advise on how we can resolve this.

Persistent correctable memory error limit


Hello James

There is no perfect answer to this question, however I am listing what our technicians do, for this problem

(a) Open the command prompt 

(b) Locate dcicfg32.exe

(c) Run the command dcicgf32 command=clearmemfailures , basically we have cleared all the memory failures.

Secondly unseat all the memory modules and thoroughly vacuum the slots with care and gently clean the pins of the RAM. Seat them back with caution. Hope this should ensure recurrence of the error.

Clear the memory failures often before it reaches its limit.
