Choose DIMMs and Memory Mirroring
Select the memory configuration and whether or not you want the memory mirroring option.
The available memory DIMMs and mirroring option are listed in Table 5.
NOTE: When memory mirroring is enabled, the memory subsystem simultaneously
writes identical data to two channels. If a memory read from one of the channels
returns incorrect data due to an uncorrectable memory error, the system
automatically retrieves the data from the other channel. A transient or soft error in
one channel does not affect the mirrored data, and operation continues unless there
is a simultaneous error in exactly the same location on a DIMM and its mirrored
DIMM. Memory mirroring reduces the amount of memory available to the operating
system by 50% because only one of the two populated channels provides data.

Caveats
■
Memory Mode. System speed is dependent on how many DIMMs are populated per channel,
the CPU DIMM speed support, and the BIOS memory mode. The BIOS default memory mode is
performance mode. However, the BIOS can be changed to support lockstep mode.
Cisco UCS C460 M4 High-Performance Rack-Mount Server
17
CONFIGURING the SERVER
—
Memory Performance Mode. In this mode, the main memory channel from the CPU
to the memory buffer runs at double the clock rate of each of the two memory
subchannels from the buffer to the DIMMs, and each DIMM subchannel is accessed
sequentially. For example, if the CPU channel clock speed is 2667 MHz, each of the
DIMM subchannels operates at 1333 MHz. For this reason, performance mode is
referred to as 2:1. Performance mode does not provide data protection, but can
yield up to 1.5 times the performance of lockstep mode and is the best choice for
high throughput requirements.
—
Memory Lockstep Mode. In this mode, the main memory channel from the CPU to
the memory buffer runs at the same clock rate of each of the two memory
subchannels from the buffer to the DIMMs, and both DIMM subchannels are accessed
simultaneously for a double-width access. For example, if the CPU channel clock
speed is 1600 MHz, each of the DIMM subchannels operates at 1600 MHz. For this
reason, lockstep mode is referred to as 1:1. Memory lockstep mode provides
protection against both single-bit and multi-bit errors. Memory lockstep lets two
memory channels work as a single channel, moving a data word two channels wide
and providing eight bits of memory correction.
■
v2 CPUs must be configured with DDR3 DIMMs and DDR3 memory risers.
■
v3 and v4 CPUs must be configured with DDR4 DIMMs and DDR4 memory risers.

■
DIMMs are required to be populated in pairs. DIMMs for this server are available as two-DIMM
kits.
■
The DIMMs in any given pair must be identical.
■
Any DIMM installed in a memory riser corresponding to an empty CPU slot becomes
inaccessible.
■
For optimal performance, distribute DIMMs evenly across all installed CPUs and memory
buffers.
■
Do not mix RDIMMs and LRDIMMs.
■
DIMMs within a channel are populated starting with the DIMMs farthest from the memory
buffer in a fill-farthest approach.
■
Matched pairs of risers on paired DDR3 channels must have identical DIMM configurations.
■
If any GPU is installed, the maximum amount of DIMM memory allowed in the server must be
less than 1 TB (for example, UCS-MR-2X162RY-E (2x16 GB) cannot exceed a quantity of 30, or
UCS-ML-2X324RY-E (2x32 GB) cannot exceed a quantity of 14, or UCS-MR-1X162RU-G (1x16
GB) cannot exceed a quantity of 60, or UCS-MR-1X322RU-G (1x32 GB) cannot exceed a
quantity of 28).
■
If a system uses 64 GB DIMMs, the maximum ambient temperature is 32 °C (89.6 °F). In
addition, systems with 64 GB DIMMs cannot implement any GPUs.

■
NVIDIA GRID K1 and K2 GPUs can be mixed. No other GPU mixing is allowed.
■
You cannot mix the K80 with any other GPU
■
You must order one power cable for each GPU you order. The power cable plugs into the
motherboard GPU power connector and to the appropriate GPU(s).
■
Slot 7 is the preferred slot for the first GPU.
NOTE: An 8-pin power connector for the GPU is located on each PCIe riser. Connect
a cable as appropriate from this connector to the power connector on the GPU.
42
■
You cannot have a GPU installed in slot 7 and at the same time have a QLE2562 HBA

STEP 16 ORDER A TRUSTED PLATFORM MODULE
Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is a computer chip (microcontroller) that can securely store
artifacts used to authenticate the platform (server). These artifacts can include passwords,
certificates, or encryption keys. A TPM can also be used to store platform measurements that
help ensure that the platform remains trustworthy. Authentication (ensuring that the platform
can prove that it is what it claims to be) and attestation (a process helping to prove that a
platform is trustworthy and has not been breached) are necessary steps to ensure safer
computing in all environments.
The TPM ordering information is listed in Table 29.

Unified Computing Drive Retention Service
With the Cisco Unified Computing Drive Retention (UCDR) Service, you can obtain a new disk
drive in exchange for a faulty drive without returning the faulty drive. In exchange for a Cisco
replacement drive, you provide a signed Certificate of Destruction (CoD) confirming that the
drive has been removed from the system listed, is no longer in service, and has been destroyed.
Sophisticated data recovery techniques have made classified, proprietary, and confidential
information vulnerable, even on malfunctioning disk drives. The UCDR service enables you to
retain your drives and ensures that the sensitive data on those drives is not compromised, which
reduces the risk of any potential liabilities. This service also enables you to comply with
regulatory, local, and federal requirements.
If your company has a need to control confidential, classified, sensitive, or proprietary data, you
might want to consider one of the Drive Retention Services listed in Table 37, Table 38, or
Table 39.
NOTE: Cisco does not offer a certified drive destruction service as part of this
service.

CPUs and DIMMs
Physical Layout
Each CPU controls four serial memory interface 2 (SMI-2) channels (see Figure 4 on page 14). There is one
memory riser for every two CPU channels. There are therefore two memory risers per CPU. Each CPU
channel drives a memory buffer on a riser card, and each memory buffer converts a CPU SMI into two DDR3
subchannels that each read and write three DIMMs on a memory riser.
The DIMM layout of a memory riser is shown in Figure 8.

Memory Population Rules
When considering the memory configuration of your server, you should observe the following:
■
Only 1 memory riser on any CPU is required to boot the system.
■
Memory risers on non-installed CPUs will not work.
■
Memory risers do not need to be populated in pairs
■
If not installing all risers, for optimal CPU air flow, even numbered risers should be installed
first.
■
Each memory riser has two memory buffers, each of which controls two DDR channels with
up to 3 DIMMs per channel.
■
For optimal performance DIMMs should be spread evenly across all CPUs and DDR channels
■
DIMM1 of a channel should be installed first (blue socket), then DIMM2 (white socket), then
DIMM3 (black socket)
Memory Population Order
When populating DIMMs on the memory riser cards, observe the population order shown in the following
tables:
66
■
Population order for 4 CPUs and 8 risers: see Table 42 on page 67.
■
Population order for 2 CPUs and 4 risers: see Table 43 on page 71.

PDUs
Cisco RP Series Power Distribution Units (PDUs) offer power distribution with branch circuit protection.
Cisco RP Series PDU models distribute power to up to 42 outlets. The architecture organizes power
distribution, simplifies cable management, and enables you to move, add, and change rack equipment
without an electrician.
With a Cisco RP Series PDU in the rack, you can replace up to two dozen input power cords with just one.
The fixed input cord connects to the power source from overhead or under-floor distribution. Your IT
equipment is then powered by PDU outlets in the rack using short, easy-to-manage power cords.
The C-series severs accept the zero-rack-unit (0RU) or horizontal PDU. See Figure 19 for one example of a
zero rack unit PDU.
