Question about add memory on DL380G4


Question about add memory on DL380G4

My Operating System is Redhat ES3 Update4.
Server model= DL380G4

I want to replace all memory from 1GB to 2GB for each DIMM. Is it neccessary to upgrade huge-mem kernel.

Note: As I understand, hugmem kernel need upgrade when upgrade more memory 16 GB. Do I understand right? If it's right, this may be mot neccessary to upgrade hugemem. That's right?

Please help to confirm and suggest any useful recommend.

we have 2GB sticks in most of our DL380 and i never heard of anyone updating huge-mem ? Why dont you just try it ? whats the worst that can happen? it either will or wont work if it doesnt revert to the old setup and change the "huge-mem" :D
