Re: HP DL380 G3 Memory Issue

What are the part numbers of your memory dimms? The correct part numbers for that system are 300700-001.

Re: HP DL380 G3 Memory Issue

The only reason I ask is that if you changed the system board, it should remove any doubts that there is a problem with the system board. And seeing as the error involves memory, it would be interesting to note what type of memory is in the server. The other option is to try booting with one pair (2 dimms). And try different combinations of dimms.

Good afternoon Waleed

Try to take the Riser Cage out of the server....that's the first step. Try to work with a Known Good Riser Cage.

First of all.....are the dimms HP memory ?.

If they are, do we have the correct part number ? The correct spare part number is: 300700-001


We should check this link: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=c00571578

This issue seems to be related to the memory dimms....you will need to troubleshoot one by one.
Have you tried working with the Smart Start CD and run the Insight Diagnostics ?.

Re: HP DL380 G3 Memory Issue

sorry for taking so long I was out of office

yes all the memory modules are HP branded and the Spare p/n: 300700-001 ,component p/n: 261584-041 DDR PC2100 512MB and i have 4 modules

I cannot use the smart start cd as the system halts after displaying the invalid memory configuratuion Err msg

I have No access to the system unless I use the ILO (and I don't know how and/or if i can get any thing out of using it)
