Due to memory DIMM errors and architectural changes in memory error handling on Intel Xeon Scalable processors (formerly code-named “Skylake Server”) and 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors (formerly code-named “Cascade Lake Server”), Cisco UCS M5 customers that experience memory DIMM errors might experience a higher rate of runtime uncorrectable memory errors than they experienced on previous generations with default SDDC Memory RAS mode.
