Re: DL385 G7 cpu question

HI There,

Good day!

Upon reviewing the server quickspecs. Yes , the server works with both the processors (AMD Opteron™ 6276 and AMD Opteron™ 6176SE ).
I suspect you will have to select one xxxxxx-L21 and one xxxxxx-B21 for the server to work with two processors.

Spare part number below.
