VRM and NMI lights lit usually indicate an issue with CPU #2's VRM which can be replaced. Also check 5 lights on back middle of system. If VRM light is lit here remove CPU 2 and VRM and reboot system. If system boots, this was the issue...

the above error indicates , a non maskable interrupt occurred in your server , there may be a change of malfunction of a hardware ,like add on cards
one more solution in ibm server is disablig the NMI interrupt by using jumper settings (inside motherboard)
see the below mentioned details , may differ with your server series please refer with series on http://www-947.ibm.com/support/entry/portal/docdisplay?brandind=5000008&lndocid=MIGR-5069937
