IMM Communication Failure - x3100 m4 (2582)

2019-08-07, 20:20 PM

Sorry, I can't speak English!

 

I have problems booting the IBM x3100 M4 (2582).
Pressing the power button displays the message "IMM Memory Initializing". After a long time the message "uEFI starting" is displayed. And after a long time the message "System Initializing" is displayed. Then the computer restarts and everything repeats itself.
When I can access the BIOS, I realize that no changes to the settings can be saved.
Some errors are reported in Event Viewer: IMM Communication Failure; Error Retrieving System Configuration from IMM; Error Updating System Configuration to IMM; IMM Configuration Failure; Boot Configuration Error.
I have already tried to update IMM through software available from IBM, but this is not possible because you need to enable the Lan-over-Usb feature because IMM is not working properly.

Could anyone help? Thank you very much in advance.

Attached is the report generated through Lenovo DSA in HTML format.

From the log, the IMM seems to have unrecovery problems, please change a new system board.

Hi eriksonlima,

 

You may can also try to reset IMM or remove and re-install power from the system. Then reboot the entire system. 

Hope this helps.

 

Thanks.
