I've had this server sitting around for over a year. Bought it on eBay for $95.00 total, including shipping.
(Waited for the last 15 seconds and placed bid at the bottom dollar, all together, including shipping, was $95.00)
During the setup, this is what I've done.
Updated the BIOS to 6.6.0
Updated the iDrac Express to 1.8
Have 4 sticks on A and 4 Sticks on B (64GB using 8GB DIMMs)
A1 A4, A2 A5
B1 B4, B2 B5
I've tried three different brands of DIMMS, and I receive the same error on the following DIMMs.
MEMBIST Failure - B1 and B4
All DIMMs are:
8GB 2Rx4 PC3-10600R
All memory is known good and tested on my other servers, so the sticks being bad, in this case, would be ALL sticks being bad, is not possible.
Could this possibly be a Motherboard issue?
Here is a picture of the error screen.
Showing 48GB out of the 64GB.
Any info on this would be great.
I can pick up another motherboard for it rather cheap, so I have no issues doing that if that is the case.
I have 3 other R710s, so I will replace this one in the rack with one of them and work on it later on down the road.
I love these R710s, so I am not bitter with the motherboard being bad if that is the case.
