Can anyone please give me advice on the following...
I have come across an HP ProLiant ML350 G6 E5620 1P 6GB-R P410i/256 460W RPS Tower Server with SBS 2011 installed.
I discovered that the Server (which works) has 2 different processors installed on the motherboard.
The pre installed processor is CPU E5620 2.40Ghz Xeon, the additional processor installed is a E5645 @ 2.40Ghz Xeon. Yes the processors are similar but they are not the same. I am surprised this server installed ok but it is running... mostly.
The POST confirms the different processors.
I have had some occasional problems with this server... Exchange crashes and IIS issues which have been difficult to pin down. I had an experienced engineer take a look at the config and he could only find minor issues with the config that he wouldnt attribute to the difficulties we have had.
I wonder what issues if any are created but the processor mismatch... can anyone shed some light on this? Why is it working? Will it be causing issues? Can I replace the "rogue" (lol) processor or will this require an OS reinstall.
Thanks for your help
