[Linux-PowerEdge] Clearing memory errors

Found by extensive "googling". :)

We have quite a few Dell servers deployed in our datacenters around the world so this error is not uncommon for us.
I have to run this command at least a couple of times a year on a server somewhere.

Interesting.  Thank you.  Where did you find that information, please?
I went with the "flea power drain" option, which seemed to work.
