HP Service Pack for
ProLiant
HP Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) and HP Smart Update Manager (HP SUM)
version 5 provide a new, comprehensive approach to firmware and system
software maintenance. Together they provide better operating stability and
ensure maximum uptime. The SPP will be updated at a predictable cadence,
typically coinciding with new HP server hardware launches. By enabling
firmware to be updated online and integrating firmware and system software
updates in one operation HP SUM and the SPP offer faster updates of
individual servers and dramatically faster updates of entire BladeSystem
enclosures. Further improving system uptime and stability is the fact that HP
provides 12 months of support on each Service Pack for ProLiant.
The user experience around HP SUM and the SPP has been improved in
several ways, starting with the web download. A single web page provides
access to a single download containing both the latest version of HP SUM
version 5 and the latest SPP. Optional smaller subsets with only specific types
of servers or specific operating systems are offered to save on download
time. The HP SUM application has been re-written to provide a more
straightforward, intuitive user interface that guides the user through the steps
of discovery, analyses and update, providing comprehensive information on
available updates, criticality and interdependencies. This information is also
available in reports. By providing the option of multiple local or shared
repositories which can be easily updated from hp.com, HP SUM provides the
tools to optimize stability and consistency throughout the company. While HP
SUM and the SPP will recommend the combinations of firmware and system
software that HP has found to be the best practice, the application gives
customers the flexibility to set their own specific baseline.
The Service Pack for ProLiant has been rigorously tested with specific
attention for interaction between firmware, drivers and agents both within the
server as well as in interaction with the BladeSystem enclosure components
(Onboard Administrator and Virtual Connect). This testing ensures the
highest quality as well as providing the input for HP SUM to deploy updates
taking into account all interdepencies, when determining the correct updates
and order of update deployment.

NOTE: The Gigabit Ethernet adapters above transmit from the server at 2000 Mbps,
full duplex per port only. For more information, see the "Network Controller" segment
in the Standards Features section.
10 Gigabit Ethernet Mezzanines
NOTE: A 10 Gigabit Ethernet adapter is required for each server blade connecting to
a 10Gb interconnect in bays 3-8 (HP BladeSystem c7000 Enclosure) or bays 2-4 (HP
BladeSystem c3000 Enclosure).
NOTE: Each 10 Gigabit Ethernet adapter requires a minimum of 2GB of server
memory.
NOTE: Each 10 Gigabit Either adapter supports linking at 1000Mbps or 10000Mbps
when not connected to a Flex-10 enabled module and will link with all current 1Gb
switches at 1Gb.
NOTE: The ROM Based Setup Utility (RBSU) feature allows for the configuring of a
FlexFabric Adapter to any of the supported protocols. For example iSCSI to FCoE
(Fibre Channel over Ethernet). Note that a HP Virtual Connect profile takes
precedence over the setting in this menu. Also, some FlexFabric Adapters may require
that network boot be enabled in order to configure the protocol. If the protocol is
configured without enabling network boot with certain FlexFabric Adapters, the
protocol may not take effect. Once the protocol has taken effect on the first boot after
configuring this option, network boot may be disabled if desired.

Memory
NOTE: Memory configurations listed do not apply to "Factory Integrated Models".
Memory Population Guidelines
For detailed memory configuration rules and guidelines, please use the Online DDR3 Memory Configuration Tool:
www.hp.com/go/ddr3memory-configurator
Some DIMM installation guidelines are summarized below;
For the BL490c G7 server with eighteen (18) memory slots:
There are three (3) channels per processor; six (6) channels per server
There are three (3) DIMM slots for each memory channel; eighteen (18) total slots
Memory channel 1 consists of the three (3) DIMMs that are closest to the processor
Memory channel 3 consists of the three (3) DIMMs that are furthest from the processor
DIMM slots that are white should be populated first
Do not mix Unbuffered memory (UDIMMs) with Registered memory (RDIMMs)
Do not install DIMMs if the corresponding processor is not installed
If only one processor is installed in a 2CPU system, only half of the DIMM slots are available
To maximize performance, balance the total memory capacity between all installed processors
It is not required, but it is recommended to load the channels similarly if possible
If any Quad rank DIMMs are installed, all channels are limited to only 2 DIMMs per channel
You can only install two quad-rank DIMMs per channel
You can only install two UDIMMs per channel; the third slot in the channel must remain empty
Populate DIMMs from heaviest load (quad-rank) to lightest load (single-rank) within a channel
Heaviest load (DIMM with most ranks) within a channel goes furthest from the processor
For memory mirroring mode, channel 3 must be unpopulated. Channels 1 and 2 are populated identically
For lock-step mode, channel 3 must be unpopulated. DIMMs in channels 1 and 2 will be installed in pairs. The paired slots
will be 1,4; 2,5; 3;6 on a 3DPC system or 1,4; 2,5; on a 2DPC system
Low Voltage DIMMs can only be used with Intel Xeon 5600 series processors.
If mixing DIMM voltage is a requirement, please note that the DIMMs will run at 1.5V since all 1.35V are capable of
supporting 1.5V operations

PC3-10600 DIMMs have a maximum speed of 1333MHz. PC3-8500 DIMMs have a maximum speed of 1066MHz
Mixing DIMM speeds is allowed, but the system processor speed rules always override the DIMM capabilities
If you do mix DIMM speeds, the memory bus will default to the minimum clock rate of all DIMMs in the system - even if the
slower DIMM is on the other processor
If you install 1x 1066MHz DIMM in channel 1 and 1x 1333MHz DIMM in channel 2, the maximum speed will be 1066MHz
If you install 1x 1066MHz DIMM in channel 1 and 5x 1333MHz DIMMs with 1 DIMM Per Channel (DPC) in each of the other
channels, the maximum speed will be 1066MHz
If you install 3DPC in one channel (if applicable) and 1DPC in all other channels, you run at 800MHz
Maximum memory speed will also depend on the processor installed
References to the above MHz speeds are for the various speeds of DDR3 DIMMs; 1333 refers to DDR3-1333, etc
