UCS B200 M3 ESXi 6.0 PSOD

We have a UCS B200 M3 blade running ESXi 6.0 that suddenly crashed with a PSOD. The server is running 2x E5-2690v2 and 384GB of memory. During the time of the crash, the SEL logs indicated memory issue. However, I just recently upgraded the CPUs from V1 to V2 and maxed out the DIMMs so I don't want to jump to conclusions yet.

The firmwares I am running as the following:

BIOS: B200M3.2.2.6d.0.062220160055

Board Controller: 15.0

CIMC: 3.1(21a)

SAS Controller: 20.12.1-0250|4.37.00|NA

VIC: 4.1(1g)

 

Looking for some input on what if anything else could be the cause for the crash. I have multiple other servers running the exact same hardware setup and same firmware levels so I want to rule out any possible configuration issues as well.

Re: UCS B200 M3 ESXi 6.0 PSOD

Greetings.

I'm guessing the DIMM errors are probably red herrings.

It's likely there is a problem with the systemboard, or processors.

You may want to double-check the processor socket pins that are actually on the motherboard to make sure none got bent during the proc upgrades/replacements, as I'm assuming this systemboard had a previous clean track record...

If you don't see any bent pins, try pulling one proc (and related dimms) out, and run the diag iso.

Repeat with other CPU  in single CPU config with diag ISO to see if this triggers again with a specific proc.

Else, open a TAC case.
