HP ProLiant BL420c Generation 8 (Gen8) Server Blade
Standard Features
HP Server ROM
HP ROM (read only memory) is now digitally signed using HP's Corporate Signing Service. This signature is
verified before the flash process starts, reducing accidental programming and preventing malicious efforts
to corrupt system ROM.
HP ROM provides for essential initialization and validation of hardware components before control is
passed to the customer-installed operating system. The ROM also provides the capability of booting from
various fixed media (HDD, CD-ROM) and removable media (USB), to continue operation to the operating
system.
HP ROM performs very early configuration of the video controller, to allow monitoring of initialization
progress via an attached monitor. If configuration or hardware errors are discovered during this early
phase of hardware initialization, suitable messages are now displayed on the connected monitor.
Additionally, these configuration or hardware errors are logged to the Integrated Management Log (IML) to
assist in diagnosis.
HP's ProLiant ROM is used to configure the following:
Processor and chipset status registers
System memory, memory map, and memory initialization
System hardware configuration (integrated PCI devices and optional PCIe cards).
Customer-specific BIOS configuration using the HP ROM-Based Setup Utility (RBSU).
NOTE: For further information, please refer to HP's RBSU (ROM based setup utility) user guide:

On System Management
HP iLO Management
Engine
HP iLO Management Engine is a comprehensive set of embedded management
features supporting the complete lifecycle of the server, from initial
deployment, through ongoing management, to service alerting and remote
support. HP iLO Management Engine comes standard on all HP ProLiant Gen8
servers. The HP iLO Management Engine portfolio includes:
HP iLO: The HP iLO management processor is the core foundation for HP
iLO Management Engine. HP iLO for HP ProLiant servers simplify server
setup, engage health monitoring and power and thermal control, and
promote remote administration for HP ProLiant ML, DL, BL and SL
servers. Furthermore with the new HP iLO is the ability to access,
deploy, and manage your server anytime from anywhere with your
Smartphone device.
HP Agentless Management: With HP iLO Management Engine in every
HP ProLiant Gen8 server, the base hardware monitoring and alerting
capability is built into the system (running on the HP iLO chipset) and
starts working the moment that a power cord and an Ethernet cable is
connected to the server.
HP Active Health System: HP Active Health System is an essential
component of the HP iLO Management Engine. The HP Active Health
System monitors and records changes in the server hardware and
system configuration. The Active Health System assists in diagnosing
problems and delivering rapid resolution when system failures occur.
HP Intelligent Provisioning: HP Intelligent Provisioning includes
everything you need for painless system setup and deployment. All
your HP Gen8 ProLiant servers and Gen8 ProLiant server blades are
ready to set-up right out-of-the box. The firmware, drivers, and tools
that you need to quickly get your systems online are embedded on a

HP Service Pack for
ProLiant (SPP)
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 all
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

lockstep mode).
Memory online spare mode (also known as rank spare mode) detects a rank that is degrading and
switches operation to the spare rank.
Memory Lockstep mode is used to correct a single x8 DRAM device failure on a DIMM. The DIMMs in
each paired memory channel must have identical HP part numbers.
Memory demand and patrol scrubbing to prevent accumulation of correctable errors and reducing
the likelihood of unplanned downtime.
Failed DIMM isolation improves the service time thus improving the overall system availability.
Address parity protection available on RDIMMs and LRDIMMs detects address bit errors improving
service time and overall system availability.

a server running Windows Server 2008 has not been tampered with while the system
was offline.

Memory
For detailed memory configuration rules and guidelines, please use the Online DDR3 Memory Configuration Tool:
www.hp.com/go/ddr3memory-configurator
Memory Subsystem Architecture
Each Intel® Xeon® E5-2400 family processor socket contains four three memory channels that support two DIMMs each for a total of
eight (8) six (6) DIMMs per installed processor or a grand total of sixteen (16) twelve (12) DIMMs for the server. Up to 32GB capacity
DIMMs are supported for 384GB of memory (12 DIMM slots x 32GB per DIMM).
Memory Population Rules and Guidelines:
A minimum of one DIMM is required per server.
Install DIMMs only if the corresponding processor is installed.
If only one processor is installed in a two processor system, only half of the DIMM slots are available.
To maximize performance, it is recommended to balance the total memory capacity between all installed processors and to load
the channels similarly whenever possible.
RDIMMs operating at either 1.35V or 1.5V may be mixed in any order, but the system will power them at the higher voltage.
RDIMMs, LRDIMMs, and UDIMMs cannot be mixed.
DIMMs of different speeds may be mixed in any order; the server will select a common optimal speed.
The maximum memory speed is a function of the memory type, memory configuration, and processor model.
The maximum memory capacity is a function of the memory type and number of installed processors.
HP memory from previous generation servers is not compatible with the BL420c Gen8 Server Blade.
To realize the performance memory capabilities listed in this document, HP SmartMemory is required. For additional
information, please see the HP SmartMemory QuickSpecs at:
http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/14225_na/14225_na.html.
For memory population rules and additional memory guidelines, please see the BL420c Gen8 user guide at
