Re: DL380 G5 - Memory Configuration

Check the documentation for memory population rules.

"Upgrading Memory and Memory Interleaving
When upgrading memory, DIMMs 1A and 3A must match. DIMMs 5B and 7B, DIMMs 2C and 4C, and DIMMs 6D and 8D must match and must be installed as a pair. When DIMMs 1A and 3A are populated the system is automatically configured for 2:1 interleaving. When all 4 banks are populated the system is automatically configured for 4:1 interleaving. When four, six, or eight DIMMs are populated with identical DIMMs the system is automatically configured for bank interleaving."

Re: DL380 G5 - Memory Configuration

If you have 4 dimms, you need to install them into

1A, 3A, 5B, 7B

You should find a table inside the server access panel (top cover).


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Hi @Kursat try this link: http://h22195.www2.hp.com/DDR4memoryconfig/Home/Legal it shows you how which memory module is compatible with the server and also the layout to achieve certain combination that you want.
