Hardware Memory Alarms in vCenter

Fredy was looking for a ESX memory alarm problem:

 

**********

 

Any one seen this or know if there is a permanent fix for these alarms?

The Customer has seen this many times on some of our G7/G8 blades.  A reboot always clears it. They have seen these memory errors on all 8 RAM modules or just in Processor 1/Processor 2 groups like the one in attached screenshot.  I don't have anything in the IML log, or system log in vCenter.

 

***********

 

Input from Christophe:

 

*************

 

Check http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=2011531

Caution: in case you need to get through Steps 8 & 9 (restarting the Services), move first your VMs to another ESX Host !!!

Other help?
