Proliant BL460c G1 memory upgrades

Hi

I have two sets of BL460c G1s with these memory configurations that I need to upgrade.

DIMM 1A : 1024 MB 667 MHz
DIMM 2C : 1024 MB 667 MHz
DIMM 3A : 1024 MB 667 MHz
DIMM 4C : 1024 MB 667 MHz
DIMM 5B : not installed
DIMM 6D : not installed
DIMM 7B : not installed
DIMM 8D : not installed

and

DIMM 1A : 2048 MB 667 MHz
DIMM 2C : not installed
DIMM 3A : 2048 MB 667 MHz
DIMM 4C : not installed
DIMM 5B : not installed
DIMM 6D : not installed
DIMM 7B : not installed
DIMM 8D : not installed

I’m not going to be using online spares or mirrored memory.

The first set of servers (with the 1GB modules) need an extra 4GB.

I plan is to install a (standard energy consumption) 2x2GB memory module pack in these.

The second set of servers (with the 2GB modules) need an extra 12GB.

I plan to install a (standard energy consumption) 2x2GB memory module pack in these along with a (standard energy consumption) 2x4GB memory module pack.

I have done a similar process for some DL380 G5s but the documentation for the BL460c G1s seems to be less easy to find. If anyone knows the link to the Quickspecs I’d appreciate it being published.

Also, if anyone can advise on the part numbers for the two module packs I would be grateful.

As an aside, looking at the way the existing modules are installed, if the Blades are like the DL380 G5s, they are in the wrong sockets for Advanced ECC. I reckon that they should be in A and B, not in A and C. Does anyone agree or disagree ?

I trust that the servers should end up with matched pairs in A, B and C and in A, B, C and D ?

Many thanks

Nigel
