Not sure about this, but it could be related to the trusted platform module - see

Hope this helps!

Re: rx2660 EFI Message, system switch into unsecure mode

At the first, thx for your fast response.


I have try it at a rx2660 without this TPM module, so i cant configure it.

Can somebody confirm that this efi message is related to this optional chip?

And anyway why i should need that "security chip" what is the function of it?

And at least, if the chip is optional, can i disable the efi information message "system set insecure mode" somewhere?

Customers scared about messages like this (even if its informational). So i want te explain why it happens, and why there is een OPTIONAL security chip not in it.

Re: rx2660 EFI Message, system switch into unsecure mode

In the EFI log files.

Login at webbrowser http://ip login default Admin/Admin, then at the left you can see the log button.

Otherwise, at Managment Console ctrl+b login default Admin/Admin. Then choose "SL" (showlog), then "e" for errorloging.

Isnt a error or a caution log but informational but i want exact to know what it means. And why you should advise use the securitychip.
