According to the attached document you need to move your DIMMS around.

1A+2B
3A+4B
5C+6D
7C+8D

see page 9 of attached document.

Re: DL380 G5 memory configuration ?

I am afraid it's not working for me - that is , the HP insight diagnostics displays false information because i have removed the 2GB x4 stacks and used the original memory with the same false result in HP insight diagnostics . . . .

Any ideas ?

Re: DL380 G5 memory configuration ?

Potter, Have you looked at upgrading the System ROM?

There are quite a few memory related issues in the revision history.

I would give this a try and see if it resolves it.

outside of that I am fresh out of ideas here.

Re: DL380 G5 memory configuration ?

Hi,
The memory configurations looks correct.
looking through the Service and Maintenance guide,i guess we would have to configure few options in the RBSU during Boot (F9)
I dont have much info about it.

Please refer to Page: 57 on the Maintenance and Service guide.

Re: DL380 G5 memory configuration ?

Hello Prabdhu

I have looked everywhere - the bios / firmware have the latest upgrades and the RSBU gives no clue - maybe the HP insight diagnostics is wrong - it happened before !
This hardware is pretty new and it is running win 2003 x64 R2

Maybe the software is wrong ?
