Re: parity check 2 - system DIMM Memory

Hello,

Either its the DIMM or the system board. Try another set of DIMMs. Try the MINIMUM configuration.

Ideally, I would think its the DIMM at fault.

Re: parity check 2 - system DIMM Memory

hi

well what is happening in the server? I mean
is it POSTing?
is there video?

is it haging on POST? on memory check?

something else if you are worry about the data, what is the storage controller for that server?

Re: parity check 2 - system DIMM Memory

Hi,

I've seen a parity check 2 error on older Proliants with a faulty NIC card.

Put the memory back in and empty the PCI slots, inlcuding any Raid controller. With the PCI slots empty see if you still get the error. If you don't then install the cards back in one by one until it appears again.

I hope this helps.
