Clear the log and reboot is what you need to do to reenable the logging.

But if the dimm is defective or the Bios isn't 2.61 the error maybe will come back.

 

You can clear the log in the DRAC if one Is present - sel/ESM/HW log => clear

 

or in Open Manage Server Administrator => logs => sel/ESM/HW log => clear

 

or in the post in the bmc bios. (last components which will be initialized before the OS start to boot)

That means that to many SBE's occur in a too short period of time. (Single bit errors in a Dimm => the dimm slot is mentioned in the HW log you can access through bmc, drac, OMSA)

To avoid a log spam the logging for SBE's was disabled until the log was cleared and a reboot was done.

 

IF you use a Generation 9 server check the System Bios if it is 2.61.

If possible (downtime) x-test the dimm with another to check if the error follows the dimm and to isolate the slot.

 

If you can't x-test and the bios and bmc is up to date open a HW call.
