The CECC error is reported in the same DIMM even after a replacement:
system health alert show command reports errors similar to the following on the cluster:
Alert ID CriticalCECCCountMemErrAlert
Alerting Resource DIMM-x
Indication Time Tue Oct 09 12:24:36 2018
Perceived Severity Critical
Probable Cause DIMM_Degraded
Description The DIMM has degraded, leading to memory errors.
The following are corrective actions:
1. Contact technical support to obtain a new DIMM of the same specification
2. If possible, perform a takeover of this node and bring the node down for maintenance
3. Refer to the DIMM replacement guide for your given hardware platform to replace the DIMM
4. Bring the storage system online
Memory issues can lead to a catastrophic system panic, which can lead to data downtime on the node.
