I would like to point out only that if you test in a non-ECC MLB, you
can't test the ECC logic, and I believe ECC tests are part of Dell's
POST processes.  I'd test in another server/ECC supporting MLB if at
all possible.  Did you swap the DIMM slots in the Dell to see if the
server side failures followed the DIMM across slots?  I apologize, I
don't recall you mentioning whether you had or not.

Regards,

dtb
