Re: HPE Server Memory Configurator broken

Totally agree, this was/is one of the most usefull tools for day to day configuring and expansion. Please reactivate this tool!!!

I've send this message to our PBM as well, so hopefully HPE will do something with our comments!

I was using this tool to find appropriate balanced memory configurations. What tool are we supposed to use now ?

That's exactly how I've used it for years as a VAR sales rep.

Maybe someone will write one.

Nobody asked me or communicated to customers how we felt about this retirement...This is a huge loss.  We need Gen10 plus to be added and it re-published.

Re: HPE Server Memory Configurator broken

I agree with everyone else. This is terrible news!

Correct population of memory has always been difficult and refering to Quickspecs or other documentation is really hard when you're upgrading servers and mixing new memory with the old ones. Also for balancing between capacity and throughput.

What is the business reason for discontinuing this? More likely many HPE customers were just not aware of the configurator. I know that HPE resellers were also using this extensively to minimize wrong configurations.

Re: HPE Server Memory Configurator broken

FYI I have opened a ticket on the EMEA techhub, the reply is the following :

We are aware that this situation leaves an empty hole in our publicly available working tools since we have not a replacement yet. Experts did not share any major reason why it was removed (it seems that it was not complaint with HPE branding)

However, Experts are aware of this situation. They also know that customers/clients are asking for a replacement.

They are working to enhance Power Advisor’s “memory configuration” so we have a working replacement ASAP, sadly, we do not have a release date for that neither.
