Re: Single bit error in RP 2470 server

No need to worry about a single SBE.

Monitor it - if possible, reboot to system to allow the diags to check even the pages currently in use.

Hope this helps!

Re: Single bit error in RP 2470 server

I agree. Single bit errors are a common occurence. It's the multi-bit errors you have to watch for.

Also, the memory will de-allocate. Watch the page deallocation table, (PDT.)
