Host firmware package upgrade from 2.1(1b) -> 2.1(3a) APEI Generic Hardware Error

Hello all,

   We just did a UCS firmware upgrade from 2.1(1b) to 2.1(3a).

   Our UCS is using the B200-M3 blades. And I use firmware policy to update the firmware on the blades.

    I just did one blade as a test to upgrade from 2.1(1b) to 2.1(3a), and  after the blade boot-up (Oracle Linux 6.4) I saw the kernel trow out :

[Hardware Error]: Hardware error from APEI Generic Hardware Error Source: 1

[Hardware Error]: APEI generic hardware error status

[Hardware Error]: severity: 2, corrected

[Hardware Error]: section: 0, severity: 2, corrected

[Hardware Error]: flags: 0x01

[Hardware Error]: primary

[Hardware Error]: fru_text: CorrectedErr

[Hardware Error]: section_type: PCIe error

[Hardware Error]: port_type: 0, PCIe end point

[Hardware Error]: version: 0.0

[Hardware Error]: command: 0xffff, status: 0xffff

[Hardware Error]: device_id: 0000:00:03.0

[Hardware Error]: slot: 0

[Hardware Error]: secondary_bus: 0x00

[Hardware Error]: vendor_id: 0xffff, device_id: 0xffff

[Hardware Error]: class_code: ffffff

Just as a test, we started up a blade with the old firmware package, and I do not have this error message showing up.

I  am just starting to investigate this message. I did not update other  blades to 2.1(3a), up untill I find out more on this error.

Anyone saw this with version 2.1(3a) and linux?

VMware vcenter 5.1U1 also report hardware issue, but is unable to identify the source of it. using this 2.1(3a) UCS-B firmware.
