What does a Memory Device 1 A 4 yellow health status in Vmware mean?

kz flag

I'm not exactly clear on what the above message means or how to troubleshoot it. My first instinct is a memory stick has errors / going bad and I need to run memtest to check this. This would mean bringing down our main server so before I do this I'd like to hear from you guys if this is the correct path. At this point there has been no noticeable degradation of server performance.

Thanks for help in advance!

If your platform has some kind of BMC management device, you should first look there for logs (IPMI SEL and alike) to see whether the hardware event was logged.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
