Re: 207-Invalid memory configuration -mismatched DIMMs within DIMM bank Memory in Bank C Not Utilized

Hi,
In the product Bulletin of the ML350G4p i.e the quickspecs, there is a note
"The HP ProLiant ML350 G4p requires interleaved memory configurations when more than one DIMM is installed. Non-array models of the ML350 G4p ship standard with a single DIMM. Note that when upgrading system memory, DIMMs must be configured in identical pairs."

The DIMMS supported
512 MB Advanced ECC PC2-3200 DDR2 SDRAM DIMM Kit (1 x 512 MB) 384163-B21
1 GB Advanced ECC PC2-3200 DDR2 SDRAM DIMM Kit (2 x 512 MB) 343055-B21
2 GB Advanced ECC PC2-3200 DDR2 SDRAM DIMM Kit (2 x 1024 MB) 343056-B21
4 GB Single-Rank Adv. ECC PC2-3200 DDR2 SDRAM DIMM Kit (2 x 2048 MB) 343057-B21
4 GB Dual-Rank Adv. ECC PC2-3200 DDR2 SDRAM DIMM Kit (2 x 2048 MB) 375004-B21

If you look at the HP ProLiant ML350 G4p Memory Configuration you have some common configuration with the total capacity Required by pair

Hi,
Unfortunately I'm not a hardware specialist, look at the attachement the quickspecs p35

NOTE: ...If you plan to mix DIMM types, 2-rank DIMMs must be installed in the first bank, 1 rank DIMMs can then be installed in subsequent banks.
after there is the memory population.
If I understand, I'm afraid that you can not do your population with this two different types of dimms.

Re: 207-Invalid memory configuration -mismatched DIMMs within DIMM bank Memory in Bank C Not Utilized

Is weird, You see

1.)
DIMM A1:Kingston KTH-MLG4/1G
DIMM A2:Kingston KTH-MLG4/1G
DIMM B3:Hynix RAM
DIMM B4:Micron RAM

2.)
DIMM A1:Hynix RAM
DIMM A2:Kingston KTH-MLG4/1G
DIMM B3:Kingston KTH-MLG4/1G
DIMM B4:Kingston KTH-MLG4/1G


1 and 2 installed method is "WORK". That mean mixed DIMM is work, but when u put any type of RAM in DIMM C5 or C6...it will prompt you the 207 invalid Mem Conf Error.

Refer to Quickspec, I know it support Max 12GB. But is it does not support 3GB? I mean it need to be like 2, 4, 6 ,8 GB like that..

Kingston KTH-MLG4/1G - Single Rank
Hynix HYMP564R72P8-E3 - Single Rank
Micron - ???
