Hi, I have the following installed:
6x 2GB 2Rx8 - #500202-061 – Currently installed

And need to install the following:
4x 8GB 2Rx4 - #500205-071 – Needs to be installed


Are there any issues in having 2GB and 8GB DIMMS installed? and is this possible?

Yes, you can mix, 2GB and 8GB DIMMs.

You configuration is possible.

At present, you may have

2GB DIMMS in Channel 1 Slot 3 (Position A) for CPU1 and CPU2
2GB DIMMS in Channel 2 Slot 6 (Position B) for CPU1 and CPU2
2GB DIMMS in Channel 3 Slot 9 (Position C) for CPU1 and CPU2

When you add the next 4 x 8GB DIMMs they must be added as follows

8GB DIMMS in Channel 1 Slot 2 (Position D) for CPU1 and CPU2
8GB DIMMS in Channel 2 Slot 6 (Position E) for CPU1 and CPU2

I tried adding the 8GB DIMMS to 5E and 6F for CPU1 and CPU2 and am still getting the beeps when attempting to bootup ...

Any ideas?

Allocation should be A - G.

If you remove ALL the 2G DIMMs, do the 8GB boot the server?
