DL580 G5 Memory Slots Question

Hello,
we have 3 of these machines for ESX4.
Every Machine has 64 GB of RAM.

But - when i take a look into the System Management Homepage -> Memory Subsystem
i see
System Board 64 GB
Board 1-4 NA

Then i take a look at HP System Insight Manager:
I see DIMM Slots Number 0 up to 27
Every Slot = Memory Size 4194304 kb
= 112 GB ?

So what is right and how much memory can i add to the machine ?

Thank you

Re: DL580 G5 Memory Slots Question

Hi, in the image you posted you have exactly 16 slots populated, which is correct. (have a closer look, there are some holes in numbers).

Probably what the SMH is meaning is: in the board 1-4 there's no memory. Keep in mind this can be a missing RAM BASKET, in the 580 series.


I think you don't have to worry too much for the SMH message.

to get the maximum RAM expandibility, check the manuals.

HTH bye!
