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:

HP Service Pack for
ProLiant (SPP)
HP Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) and HP Smart Update Manager (HP SUM)
provide a 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 for each Service Pack for ProLiant release.
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 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 provides a 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 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 Service Pack for ProLiant (which includes HP SUM) can be
downloaded from www.hp.com/go/spp/download. More information can be

Memory
Data Bus ECC protection provides automatic correction from a single data bit error and detection of
double data error bits. Often called single error correction/double error detection (SEC/DED).
Advanced ECC uses single device data correction (SDDC) to detect and correct single and all multi-bit
error that occurs within a single DRAM chip. Both x4 and x8 SDDC are supported (x8 requires
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. HP offers the rank sparing rather than DIMM sparing as rank
sparing uses less spare memory resulting in reduced overhead.
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 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 to improve
service time and overall system availability.
Memory thermal control is used to prevent DIMMs from overheating. Achieved by slowing down the
memory access rate per the temperature monitored by DIMM sensor.
Mezzanine options and I/O
One or two FlexibleLOM connectors each supporting two (i.e. redundant) Ethernet ports routed to
redundant interconnect modules.
Multiple mezzanine I/O expansion slots that support a wide variety of mezzanine cards each

memory ECC, parity, and cache, and improves service time.
Intel® QPI Protocol Protection allows detection of data errors using a checksum of 8-bits.
Core Disable for FRB (fault resilient boot) allows a system to power-on despite a failing core-pair. It
uses BIST (built-in self test) results to detect a failure and disables the target core-pair upon
subsequent boot.
Server Blade Enclosure Infrastructure
Pooled power for true N+N power redundancy through up to six (6) hot-plug, high-efficiency,
common slot enclosure-based power supplies (configuration dependent).
Up to ten (10) redundant enclosure-based hot-plug HP Active Cool fans that scale to meet future
demands and optimize airflow, reduce power draw, and improve acoustic performance.
Dual grid power providing redundant rack enclosure power feeds to the server blade enclosure.
HP Dynamic Power Saver Mode the total enclosure power consumption is monitored in real time and
automatically adjusted with changes in demand for improved efficiency and reliability.
HP Dynamic Power Capping safely limits power usage without impacting performance by capping
peak usage instead of average power usage, removes risk to electrical infrastructure with a fastacting, hardware-based capping algorithm, and reclaims more power by dynamically controlling
power limits based on workload demand.
Up to eight interconnect modules per server blade enclosure providing four simultaneous redundant
fabrics for FlexFabric, Virtual Connect Ethernet, Fibre Channel, InfiniBand, Pass Thru Ethernet, etc.
Enclosure crosslinks between adjacent enclosures to provide interconnect module-to-module
connections or as Virtual Connect module stacking links.

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® E5-4600 family processor socket contains four memory channels that support two DIMMs each for a total of eight
(8) DIMM per installed processor or a grand total of thirty-two (32) DIMMs for the server. Up to 32GB capacity DIMMs are supported for
1.0TB of memory (32 DIMM slots x 32GB per DIMM).
Memory Population Rules and Guidelines:
A minimum of one DIMM is required per processor.
Install DIMMs only if the corresponding processor is installed.
DIMM slots attached to each processor socket are only available if a processor is installed in that socket.
DIMM sizes can be mixed in channel. 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.
LRDIMMs and RDIMMs are distinct memory technologies and cannot be mixed within a server.
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 BL660c Gen8 Server Blade.
When HP 24GB (1x24GB) Three Rank x4 PC3L-10600R (DDR3-1333) Registered CAS-9 Low Voltage FIO Memory Kits are used, all
32 DIMM slots on the BL660c Gen8 must be fully populated with these 24GB DIMMs.
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 BL660c Gen8 user guide at
