Apologies if this is not the correct place to post this issue. I've
gotten some feedback on the user's list, but it seems that getting
some developer insight may be appropriate before opening a bug report.

Please see the original thread here :


memtest86+ found no issues on 8 passes. Since this server has been
solid for a couple of years, I'm inclined to think this is a bug, or
EDAC is finding an issue in some other subsystem (not memory), but
the error info is not sufficient to determine what is really going on.

I have a few Super Micro servers (various motherboards and
revisions) with this chipset running various kernels and versions of
CentOS (with/without i5000_edac). That said, I think I'm in a
position to provide some helpful information to approach this issue,
I just need to know where to go with it. I'm happy to build a custom
kernel with additional code to diagnose the issue.

If needed in the short term, can I simply unload i5000_edac without
crashing the server.
