Overview and Common Procedures—Server Upgrade
Overview
Memory Upgrade Procedures
The HP 9000 rp3410 or HP 9000 rp3440 server includes 12 DIMM connectors (slots) on the system board.
Memory DIMMs are installed in pairs (groups of two) or quads (groups of four). You may replace any or all of
the DIMMs within a server or install additional DIMMs to increase server memory.
Memory usage in the HP 9000 rp3410 server varies with the model designation. In the original server (model
A7136A), memory is installed as one or two pairs in the first quad (group of four). This allows memory
configurations of two, four, eight, or 12 DIMMs. In the current server (model A7136B), memory must be
installed as quads (groups of four). This allows memory configurations of four, eight, or 12 DIMMs. Thus, the
HP 9000 rp3410 server may include a minimum of 512 MB (model A7136A) or 1 GB (model A7136B) and may
include up to six GB of memory in combinations of 256-MB, 512-MB, and 1-GB DIMMs. Different size DIMMs
may be installed in the server, but all four DIMMs in a quad (group of four) must be identical.
The HP 9000 rp3440 server may include up to 32 GB of memory in combinations of 256-MB, 512-MB, 1-GB,
2-GB, and 4-GB DIMMs. Again, DIMM sizes can be mixed within the server (except when 4 GB DIMMs are
used), but all four DIMMs in a quad (group of four) must be identical. If 4 GB DIMMs are used, only one
configuration (8 X 4 GB in the first eight sockets) is supported. Only complete quads (four DIMMs) can be
installed in the HP 9000 rp3440 server.
NOTE
There is only one configuration of 4 GP DIMMs that is supported; two (2) quads of 4 GP
DIMMs. You cannot mix one quad of 4 GB DIMMs with any other quads.
NOTE
The first eight sockets are the first eight sockets according to the memory loading rules and not
the first sequential sockets.
See “Common Procedures” on page 15 for memory installation procedures.
Limitations
Limitations on DIMM installation are:
•
DIMMs must be installed in server load sequence (the first DIMM must be in the first slot, the second
DIMM must be in the second slot, and so on)
•
A minimum of 512 MB (model A7136A) or 1 GB (model A7136B) of memory must be installed in an HP
9000 rp3410 server
•
A maximum of six GB of memory can be installed in an HP 9000 rp3410 server
•
A minimum of one GB of memory must be installed in an HP 9000 rp3440 server
•
A maximum of 24 GB or 32 GB of memory can be installed in an HP 9000 rp3440 server (a 24 GB memory
configuration requires 2 GB DIMMs, a 32 GB memory configuration requires 4 GB DIMMs
•
DIMM sizes within a quad must be the same (DIMMs of different sizes can be installed in a server but all
four DIMMs within a quad must be identical)
•
If 4 GB DIMMS are used in an HP 9000 rp3440 server, only eight DIMMs (in the first eight sockets) can
be installed (This is the only supported configuration that uses 4 GB DIMMs)
•
Use of 4 GB DIMMs requires that system firmware is upgraded

Memory DIMMs
Your system has 12 memory sockets for installing DDR SDRAM memory modules. Supported DIMM sizes are
256 MB, 512 MB, 1 GB, 2 GB and 4 GB (HP 9000 rp3440 only). If 4 GB DIMMs are used, only one
configuration (8 X 4 GB in the first eight sockets) is supported. The system supports combinations from 512
MB up to six GB in an HP 9000 rp3410 server and from one GB up to 32 GB in an HP 9000 rp3440 server. No
restrictions are applied to the use of 2-GB DIMMs. You can use 2-GB DIMMs together with other sizes (all
DIMMs of a quad must be equal) and you can create a 24-GB memory using 12 2-GB DIMMs.
NOTE
48
If you are installing 4 GB DIMMs, you must upgrade the system firmware before DIMM
installation.

Chapter 1
49
Overview and Common Procedures—Server Upgrade
Memory DIMMs
CAUTION
Observe all ESD safety precautions before attempting this procedure. Failure to follow ESD
safety precautions could result in damage to the server.
Step 1. Turn off the system and disconnect power.
Step 2. Remove the top cover. (See “Removing the Top Cover” on page 20.)
Step 3. Remove the memory airflow guide. (See “Removing the Memory Airflow Guide” on page 26.)
Step 4. Identify the DIMM to be removed and, at the same time, push the appropriate extraction levers
found on either side of the DIMM connector outward to the open position. The DIMM ejects from
the connector.
Step 5. Remove the DIMM from the socket. If the removed memory is functional, store it in a static-free
container for future use.
Installing DIMMs
Memory modules must be loaded in the correct order:
•
•
In the HP 9000 rp3410 server, the first four DIMMs must be installed as pairs of equal size. The DIMM in
socket 0A must match the DIMM in socket 0B. If a second pair is added (sockets 1A and 1B), the DIMMs
must match the DIMMs in sockets 0A and 0B. Additional DIMMs (DIMM sockets 5 through 12) must be
installed as quads (groups of four identical DIMMs). This requirement is summarized as:
•
0A and 0B must be an identical pair (model A7136A only)
•
1A and 1B must be identical to the pair in sockets 0A and 0B (model A7136A only)
•
0A, 0B and 1A, 1B must be an identical quad (two pairs/four DIMMs) (model A7136B)
•
2A, 2B and 3A, 3B must be an identical quad (four DIMMs)
•
4A, 4B and 5A, 5B must be an identical quad (four DIMMs)
In the HP 9000 rp3440 server, DIMMs must be installed in matched quads. Two matched memory card
pairs of equal size (that is, four identical DIMMs) must be installed, one pair per memory cell, as listed
below:
•
0A, 0B and 1A, 1B must be an identical quad (four DIMMs)
•
2A, 2B and 3A, 3B must be an identical quad (four DIMMs)
•
4A, 4B and 5A, 5B must be an identical quad (four DIMMs)
NOTE
DIMMs match if they have the same HP part number.
Module sizes can be mixed in most configurations, as long as DIMMs in each quad match. For example:
•
On the HP 9000 rp3410 server, it is acceptable to load four 256 MB DIMMs in sockets 0A, 0B, 1A, and 1B
and four 512 MB or 1 GB DIMMs in sockets 2A, 2B, 3A, and 3B
•
On the HP 9000 rp3440 server, it is acceptable to load a quad of 256 MB DIMMs in sockets 0A, 0B, 1A
and 1B, and four 512 GB, 1 GB, or 2 GB DIMMs in sockets 2A, 2B, 3A and 3B
•
On the HP 9000 rp3440 server, if 4 GB DIMMs are used, eight DIMMs must be installed in the first two
quads (sockets 0A, 0B, 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B, 3A and 3B).

CAUTION
Observe all ESD safety precautions before attempting this procedure. Failure to
follow ESD safety precautions could result in damage to the server.
To ensure that memory modules are not damaged during removal or installation,
power off the server and unplug the power cord from the AC power outlet. Wait until
the LED on the back of the power supply turns off before removing or installing
memory.
Step 2. Remove the top cover. (See “Removing the Top Cover” on page 20.)
Step 3. Remove the memory airflow guide. (See “Removing the Memory Airflow Guide” on page 26.)
Step 4. Locate the socket/slot into which the DIMM will be installed. Holding the memory module by its
left and right edges, insert the module into the socket.
NOTE
The memory modules are keyed and can only be inserted in one direction. When the
module is correctly seated, the retainer clips will return to their fully upright
position.
