Re: rx6600 memory upgrade

Your system has 24 memory slots,

So you need now the second memory board in order to install the same amount of DIMMs.

Re: rx6600 memory upgrade

If you need to use HP-UX for a longer time, consider to buy a rx2800 i6, available until end of this year.
This will be the last hardware supporting HP-UX.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: rx6600 memory upgrade

Good point from Torsten there - if you're considering adding memory to this system yourself, then I guess you might not have a support contract for it with HPE - but if you do, be aware that for the rx6600 we aren't expecting the support organisation to renew support contracts beyond the end of 2020.
