processor upgrade on compaq proliant

Hello to all,

I have 2 servers:
server A:
2 x Pentium II 450 dual processor supported.

server B:
1 x Pentium III IGHZ dual processor supported

Is it possible for me to add another processor on server B and upgrade both cpu on server A to say pentium III?

Also, is it possible to switch RAM from proliant ML370 to proliant 1600?

Thank you very much for your replies.

Re: processor upgrade on compaq proliant

Without knowing which servers we're talking about, I can't say for sure. Are these the PL1600 and a ML370?

Yes the 1600 can be upgraded, but I would recommend getting the thermal upgrade kit (pn 144003-B22) for this. The ML370 can be upgraded to dual procs without anything else. Moving memory from one of these servers to another (ML370 to a 1600 or vice versa) is not recommended and will likely not work at all.
The truth is out there, but I forgot the URL..
