  1. We just had a unexpected reboot happen and found the same message in the log, same model server,

    Some explanation as to how you came to consider this setting change or anything to motivate this course of action would really be helpful. I can’t change a setting on a customers server based on this report alone.

    1. Hi Chris, I came to that conclusion on personal experience dealing with this issue. I have received messages from Dell’s techs and now this post is linked on Dell’s internal KB.
      You are free to test it yourself or keep troubleshooting it with whatever information you find on the internet.
      Hope you fixed your problem
