HP DL 380 G4 able to support 10 GB Memory ?

Hi All,

I am experiencing problem to upgrade a DL380 G4 with existing 4GB to new 10GB.
The old memory population was 1x2GB-Kit,2x1GB-Kit.
The new memory population: 2x4GB-Kit,1x2GB-Kit.
I am able to boot with the 2x4GB-Kit but as soon I install the 2GB-Kit the Memory LED flashes red with a noisy "beep". The front panel show a red LED as well and therefore the server does not boot.
Bios upgrade to revision 04/26/2006 was unsuccessfully as well.
...I can not found any hints about the max of memory supported by the DL380 G4

...ANY Idea

Thanks in advanced for your feedback

Hello,

"The new memory population: 2x4GB-Kit,1x2GB-Kit." ????

You mean 3 DIMMs ?? DIMM HAS to be in pairs;

hence for 10 GB use 2x4GB, 2x1GB kit;
http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12028_div/12028_div.HTML#Memory

For BIOS update;
Try the ONLINE version:
http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/25232.html

Or the Offline Version:
http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/24679.html

Try updating BIOS with MINIMUM memory;

Hi James,

Regarding the memory population:
- 2 times 4GB Kit "375004-B21" (two pairs) Bank 1-4
- 1 time 2GB Kit "343056-B21"(one pair) Bank 5-6
- 1 time 1GB Kit "343055-B21"(one pair) SPARE

BIOS:
Latest version 04/26/2006

Referring the test, it seems that my system does not support more then 8GB ??
...or is the cause because of the two 4GB of 2-Rank Advanced "375004-B21" ?

Thanks for your feedback
