The E2111 should also indicate a number after the DIMM, this is the bank of the DIMM it believes to be bad. Depending on your support contract situation, and ability to bring down the machine, reseating the module after cleaning it a bit with some good old 'canned air' may do the trick. Otherwise a module replacement is in order which is typically covered by DELL if you are still under coverage.

While it is most likely bad memory in the indicated slot, you should swap the memory with another stick. This will help you determine whether it is a bad memory stick or a bad memory slot, and sometimes simply reseating the memory can resolve connection-related issues. This will probably be asked of you by Dell support anyway. If this has an older BIOS (less than 2.0.0), then it may also be a BIOS issue rather than hardware. Several BIOS revisions have been released to address memory and error handling.

I have the same problem and I can confirm that it is not bad memory.
After swapping DIMM 5 which is was complaining about it then begun complaining about 7, then 1 then 3.
Replacing all these cured it for 10 minutes then it went back to DIMM 5.
I also updated the BIOS to verion 2.7.0
Currently looking for a firmware update.

The E2111 SBE LOG Disable DIMM error is due to a repeated Single Bit dimm errors filling the memory logs. What you will need to do is go to the hardware log in the Drac (Ctrl-E prompt on startup or via OpenManage) once there then view the log for any errors identifying specific dimms. Note the errors and dimm locations and then clear the hardware log, via the Drac/BMC or OpenManage, and then reboot and see if another error comes up. If so then power down the server and swap the listed dimm with other matching dimm in the server. If the error moves to the new location it is a bad dimm, if the error remains at the same slot as before then it may be the motherboard slot.

Let me know what you find.

Two most likely causes for this error are
First: the memory module, DIMM3 has worked its way loose and needs to be reseated firmly in its slot with both catches firmly engaged.
Second: The memory module DIMM 3 has become faulty and needs to replaced.
If reseating the DIMM doesn't work try swapping slots with a module of the same size in a different slot and see if the fault follows the module or goes away. If the fault follows the module, eg to DIMM 1, then it is most likely that the module is faulty.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

Metabo SBE 750 Have continuity through the trigger

IF you have continuity through the switch and the brushes look good then remove on brush and look at the commutator segments. There should be nice even gaps between each segment. If you have on that a goodbit wider than the others then your rotor is bad. If not then more than likley your stator is bad.

HOW TO ENABLE 289 DIMM D01 is disabled in server 2008.

terrible question; please add more detail

if your system has a dual CPU socket, perhaps you don't have a second cpu (where more memory banks usually require that second cpu socket to be populated in order to use the dimm slots); doubtful, but there could also be a jumper on your mobo

or maybe look in your BIOS; that's where things are enabled/disabled (i.e. server 2008, afik, doesn't have a way to specifically disable a dimm slot)

the mobo (or system) manual may have guidance for memory installation; e.g. sometimes there's a size or slot population type table (or compatibility; i.e. maybe the memory you are installing is dual rank and the system only takes single, thus it appears that the slot is disabled)

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at
