DL560 R1 memory pains

Hi Guys

I have a DL560R01, server part number is B46639-002.

Im trying to get it specced up for 6x 2Gb DIMMS, however there is a great deal of confusion about the RAM part numbers. My supplier has sent me 300682-B21, but after installing the RAM it fires up an error message on POST - 207 - insufficient timings on DIMM in socket 1a and 2a.

I notice that the 1Gb DIMMS that the server is currently running on is CL2 RAM and the upgrade DIMMS are CL2.5

I am fairly sure that the RAM I Am after for this particular job is part number 300702-001

Can anyone confirm? There is a great deal of confusion between suppliers/HP about this!

Cheers in advance
JOn

300682-B2 is part number for 4GB of PC2100 DDR SDRAM DIMM Memory Kit (2 x 2GB modules),

300702-001 is SPARE part number for "2.0GB, 266MHz, PC2100, registered ECC DDR DRAM DIMM single memory module

Yea sorry - the option number for 300702-001 is 300680-B21.

Im trying to find out if this error 207 is something I am doing wrong or if my supplier has sent me the wrong RAM.

If they have sent me the wrong RAM, is 300680-B21 going to work?

argh its doing my head in.

Sorry - scratch that post.

The option number for 300702-001 seems to be 301044-b21.

but the HP site doesnt give a list of supported models.

apologies for the error. My brain is fried.

Re: DL560 R1 memory pains

I think im making some headway.

The server works fine with 2x 2Gb DDR CL2.5 ECC RAM in. (this is one kit 300682-b21)

however the other kit, which has the same part number, is actually 2x 2GB DDR 266 ***CL2* ECC RAM*** according the the little infineon sticker on the dimms themselves.

If i try and start the server up with the latter, I dont get a POST. If I start it up with all 4 DIMMS, I get the speed error.

It looks to me that although these DIMMS share the same HP sticker, the description on the modules themselves are different....
