Re: rx8640 PCI-Express

It depends upon the server's configuration, how many cells and what you're actually asking.

Are you asking how to install an additional PCI-e via the SEU-2 or replace an existing PCI-X with 2 PCI-e backplane options?

Start here:

"The HP Integrity rx8640 Server supports both PCI-X 2.0 and PCI-Express. Two different backplanes are available. The PCI-X 2.0 backplane (AB160A) supports sixteen (16) PCI-X slots. A combination PCI-Express/PXI-X 2.0 backplane (AD161A) supports eight (8) PCI-X slots and eight (8) PCI-Express slots. Each backplane contains two master I/O controller chips located on the backplane."
