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...

Assuming that this is resolved as it appears to be an old, time-sensitive issue.

Although I would say that what you're asking would have been a design choice on IBM's part. The BMC would dictate fan curve and if one of the fans is not spinning at the minimal RPM - as specified in that fan curve - then it would obviously shut the system down to protect it from heat damage.

You may be able to adjust this using various commands in the BMC but I am not familiar with IBM's hardware. (Which is likely different in the same way that Dell's iDRAC differs from HP's iLO, etc.)

I'd say it's unlikely either way.

I would check the firmware/bios as these had a known issue.
Check with IBM for the latest firmware and BIOS.
Update me if this does not resolve the problem.

Server is model is not mentioned.

You can clear logs by this way..
1: Get into BIOS and there you could see server logs. Clear those logs
2: Get into IMM and you can find logs there. Clear those logs (This is applicable to servers with IMM and Uefi firmwares)
3: Get into BIOS and find out IPMI logs. Its under Advanced settings.
Clear those (This is applicable for older x series machines with BIOS firmwares)

Guide events have changed the identification protocol and a refreshment of the input data to the Event ID structure will fix the problem. This must be done within 24 hours of the last formal event or else the system will crash and no longer be salvable.

go into bios and change start up type from uefi to legacy if you don't have the option update the bios

Well it usally means the fan is bad it may work and keep your CPU cool but it can still send the code just replace the fan

Depending on version you have the should numerous boot options, like power off / on, ctrl alt del, and so on. You may also require admin rights. Some accounts only have read only.
