Mix CPU's in DL580G4?

Hello,

We just purchased a DL580G4 with two 7130M's equipted. We asked for two additionals CPU's. Our supplier shipped two additional 7030 kits. Can we mix two 7130M's and two 7030's in the 580G4? Or is this not smart to do and should we get them replaced by two additional 7130M?

Thanks!

Thanks James,

I was affraid that was the answer..

Strange that the reseller shipped this stuff..

Is the "ProLiant DL580 Generation 4 Server User Guide" still somewhere on-line? The link on the HP site fails at the moment..

Thanks again!
