DL785 G6 ilo inproper indicate quantity of memory

Hi all we have factory intagrated DL785 G6 with 8 cell's every cell is populated with 1 processor and 4 8Gb memory modules => total 8*4*8=256GB RAM
But in iLO in tab system summary->memory we see only 5 cell's (boards) 8*5=160Gb.
In tab summary->processors we see all processors
In time of boot I see all 256GB (bios screen)
Server have been upgraded with FW Maintenance CD 8.60

I upgraded iLO from 1.78 to 1.80 the same
It looks like it's iLO bug.

Ideas?

I moved boards already, and visual checked how memory sits - everything looks ok
memory is factory integrated

Hi Admir,

Unfortunately I can't download your attachment.

However please apply the following rules when installing your dimms:
DIMMS must be installed in pairs, in addition:

DIMMs installed in the same memory bank must have the same part number.

DIMMs installed in different banks can be different sizes.

DIMMs must be installed in decreasing capacity with the largest DIMMs installed in the banks furthest away from the processor.

A minimum of two DIMMs (1 kit) must be installed per processor.


use the following link for specs regarding memory in your server:

Re: DL785 G6 ilo inproper indicate quantity of memory

If you go to the power section of the ilo and ask it to show you power states, does it show all 48 cores or only a subset?

Re: DL785 G6 ilo inproper indicate quantity of memory

Hi all, sorry I will get access to server in few days only((, so immediately I get I will:
1. make short video of iLO (all tabs) :)
2. check all dimm rules again
3. start server with 4 cells (according to rule 2 rightmost & 2 leftmost), check ilo & bios start screen.
3.1 with 4 cells and 2 memory modules in every cell instead 4 (minimum 1 bank = 2 modules according to manual)


mark1234
now we have 256Gb physically installed and limit is 512GB

PS
If anyone has more ideas, or i forgot something pls tell, I do not have access to server "all the time"((

It has been suggested to me that this:

still applies to the DL785 G6.
