Dell PowerEdge R710 Memory Error During POST

I noticed that one of my many brand new Dell PowerEdge R710 servers was generating an error during POST that said, “Warning: Unsupported memory configuration detected. The memory configuration is not optimal.”

Well that doesn’t look right. Looking in the BIOS under memory settings I see that Memory Operating Mode is set to Optimizer Mode.

Yeah…that’s not right. Shame on Dell for sending this out wrong. Let’s change that to Advanced ECC Mode.

Rebooted & no more error.

    Hi Patrick, It’s in blue color. Not allowed to change to “Advanced ECC Mode”, any advice…

      What are the values for the other items in the list? (System Memory Size, Type, etc.)

    What Bios Version are you currently at? Also what memory are you currently running in the server? That way I can make sure there is no hardware compatibility issue. I look forward to hearing from you.
