207 - memory initialization error

I wanted to upgrade the RAM of our ProLiant BL460c G6 with two processors from 24 to 32 GB. The initial configuration with 6x2GB works fine, but with 4x4GB on slots D, A, B, C I get a "207 - Memory initialization error on Processor 1 DIMM2 / DIMM 1/DIMM4/DIMM6". Rotating the DIMMS from Processor2 to 1  gave the same error on P1. After switching back to 6x2GB everything is fine again. Any ideas?

Can you provide me the spare part numbers of the DIMMs that you are trying to install?
Also make sure your BIOS is up to date.
Did my post help? Thank me with kudo's! :)

Re: 207 - memory initialization error



Try installing DIMMs into 2A slots and 4B slots. power up blade, check results. If pass then add the next four DIMMs in 6C and 1D. Leave 3E and 5F empty for each processor.


If the first four DIMMs give same error, remove DIMMS in 4B slots and test again. Minimum Memory would be 1 DIMM in both (P1 and P2) DIMM 2A slots.

If all DIMMS giving error with Processor1 too, then need to check part number and compatibility with system.


Also some time use/mix of counterfit parts generates such problems.
