HP DL380 G4 Issues when Ram over 8G
Posted on 2013-01-02
This question is the same as question already asked, more or less. the caviot is that the supplier categorically states that all Ram modules are single rank.
I am trying to upgrade an HP ProLiant DL380 G4 to 12G of ram, I have enough slots to go with 6/2G sticks. No matter how I configure the ram in the server, as soon as I have the first 4 slots filled with the new 2Gig Ram Dimms, any further Ram installed causes the server to NOT boot.
The Ram in the Slots 5 & 6 can be any size 512, 1G or the new 2G with the same results.
If I install Only 2 x 2G Dimms in slots 1 & 2 and then 4 x 1G in slots 3,4,5 & 6 the server boots fine. But again no matter what config all I get is beeps when I go over 8G.
If it is not a Rank issue on the new Ram, what else could it be?
The supply has offered to swap with different manufactured RAM Dimms, but I would like to explore any other possibilities. Thanks
