memory upgrade on HP N class server

hi
I have a HP N class server on which the memory configuration is as follows:



Basic Memory Description

Module Type: MEMORY
Total Configured Memory : 4096 MB
Page Size: 4096 Bytes

Memory interleaving is supported on this machine and is ON.

Memory Board Inventory

Extender
Slot Num Configured and Slot label for each DIMM (MB)
-------- --------------------------------------------
0a 2a 1a 3a 3b 1b 2b 0b
---- ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- ----

EXT 0 512 512 512 512 512 512 512 512
------------------------------------------------------
System Total (MB): 4096


On this one of the 512 MB DIMMS would be replaced by a 1 GB DIMM.

What steps do we need to perform in order to do it.

many thanks in advance

Re: memory upgrade on HP N class server

Just power down the server, take out the extender and replace the DIMMs. Before you do this, make sure your firmware is up to date.

I would consider to get another extender and spread all the DIMMs across them.

Hope this helps!

1. Shutdown the server
2. Replace slot 0a and 0b with new larger DIMMS
3. Startup the server

For this server DIMMs must be always installed in pairs! So you need at least 2 1GB DIMMs in slots 0a/0b.

Hope this helps!

Re: memory upgrade on HP N class server

Hi,


The upgrade requires at least a pair of the 1 GB RAM modules and while putting them in the Slots mixingg with the 512 MB RAMS make sure that the largest of the RAMS are placed in the Lowest numbered slots , in ur case 0a and 0b
