The LCD display on the front of the server tells me, with a message like
this:

"SBE logging disabled on DIMM C3. Reseat DIMM"

I can also generate a report with DELL DSET that shows me a similar
other message. I'm sure there are other tools, but I usually have to
create a DSET report to send to Dell, anyway.
