212-Processor Failed

After a reboot I get the following message in iLO logs:

"Caution POST Message 05/26/2009 02:19 05/26/2009 02:19 1 POST Error: 212-Processor 1 Failed"

Also on the boot screen it comes up with "POST Error: 212-Processor 1 Failed"

The server still boots as it has 2 processors.

The hardware is a BL2x220 with all the firmware up to date.

If I do another reboot it comes right. This happens to more than one of my BL2x220 servers.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Re: 212-Processor Failed

Boot the server, press F9 when the server beeps twice during boot, to enter the ROM-based configuration utility (RBSU).

Once in the utility, select "Advanced Options ".

Select "Set Processor Corrected"

Select â Set CPU 1 corrected â .

Press ESC twice, then press F10 to save the configuration changes.

The server should re-boot without any error at all during POST.

Hi Sahnia

I had a look and could not find the options in the bios you have kindly marked out. What version of Bios are you running?
