    Optimum environment When installing the server, select a location that meets the environmental standards described in this section. Space and airflow requirements Tower server In a tower configuration, leave at least a 7.6-cm (3-in) clearance space at the front and back of the server for proper ventilation.
  • Page 32: Temperature Requirements

    Temperature requirements To ensure continued safe and reliable equipment operation, install or position the system in a well- ventilated, climate-controlled environment. The maximum recommended ambient operating temperature (TMRA) for most server products is 35°C (95°F). The temperature in the room where the rack is located must not exceed 35°C (95°F). CAUTION: To reduce the risk of damage to the equipment when installing third-party options: •...
  • Page 33: Rack Warnings

    Furthermore, you must be sure that all power distribution devices used in the installation, such as branch wiring and receptacles, are listed or certified grounding-type devices. Because of the high ground-leakage currents associated with multiple servers connected to the same power source, HP recommends the use of a PDU that is either permanently wired to the building’s branch circuit or includes a nondetachable cord that is wired to an industrial-style plug.

  • Page 44: Memory Subsystem Architecture

    IMPORTANT: This server does not support mixing RDIMMs and UDIMMs. Attempting to mix these two types causes the server to halt during BIOS initialization. The memory subsystem in this server can support RDIMMs or UDIMMs. Both types are referred to as DIMMs when the information applies to both types.
  • Page 45: Dimm Identification

    Dual- and quad-rank DIMMs provide the greatest capacity with the existing memory technology. For example, if current DRAM technology supports 2-GB single-rank DIMMs, a dual-rank DIMM would be 4- GB, and a quad-rank DIMM would be 8-GB. DIMM identification IMPORTANT: This server does not support mixing RDIMMs and UDIMMs.
  • Page 46 • Advanced ECC—provides the greatest memory capacity for a given DIMM size, while providing up to 8-bit error correction, depending on the specific DIMM type. This mode is the default option for this server. • Mirrored Memory—provides maximum protection against failed DIMMs. Uncorrectable errors in one channel are corrected by the mirror channel.
  • Page 47: General Dimm Slot Population Guidelines

    Lockstep mode uses channel 1 and channel 2. Channel 3 is not populated. Because channel 3 cannot be populated when using Lockstep mode, the maximum memory capacity is lower than Advanced ECC mode. Memory performance with Advanced ECC is also slightly higher. General DIMM slot population guidelines Observe the following guidelines for all AMP modes: •...
  • Page 48 Lockstep Memory population guidelines For Lockstep memory mode configurations, observe the following guidelines: • Observe the general DIMM slot population guidelines (on page 47). • Always install DIMMs in channels 1 and 2 for each installed processor. • Do not install DIMMs in channel 3 for any processor. •...
