system performance feedback and optimum system uptime. From a service and support standpoint,
Lenovo memory automatically assumes the system warranty, and Lenovo provides service and support
worldwide.
The System x3500 M4 supports DDR3 memory. The server supports up to 12 DIMMs when one processor
is installed and up to 24 DIMMs when two processors are installed. Each processor has four memory
channels, and there are three DIMMs per channel.
The following rules apply when selecting the memory configuration:
The server supports UDIMMs, RDIMMs, and LRDIMMs.
Mixing different types of memory (UDIMMs, RDIMMs, and LRDIMMs) is not supported.
Mixing 1.5 V and 1.35 V DIMMs in the same server is supported. In such a case all DIMMs operate
at 1.5 V.
The maximum number of ranks per channel is eight (with the exception of Load Reduced DIMMs,
where more than eight ranks are supported because one quad-rank LRDIMM provides the same
electrical load on a memory bus as a single-rank RDIMM).
The maximum quantity of DIMMs that can be installed in a server depends on the number of CPUs,
DIMM type, rank, and operating voltage, as shown in the "Max. qty supported" row in Table 5.
All DIMMs in the server operate at the same speed, which is determined as the lowest value of:
Memory speed supported by specific CPU
Lowest maximum operating speed for the selected memory configuration that depends on
rated speed, operating voltage, and quantity of DIMMs per channel, as shown in the "Max.

* The maximum quantity supported is shown for two processors installed. When one processor installed
the maximum quantity supported is a half of that shown.
The following memory protection technologies are supported:
ECC
Chipkill (for x4-based memory DIMMs)
Memory mirroring
Memory sparing
Chipkill works only in independent channel mode (default operational mode) and supports only x4-based
memory DIMMs.
If memory mirroring is used, then DIMMs must be installed in pairs (minimum of one pair per CPU), and
both DIMMs in a pair must be identical in type and size.
If memory rank sparing is used, then a minimum of one quad-rank DIMM or two single-rank or dual-rank
DIMMs must be installed per populated channel (the DIMMs do not need being identical). In rank sparing
mode, one rank of a DIMM in each populated channel is reserved as spare memory. The size of a rank
varies depending on the DIMMs installed.
Note: Chipkill, memory mirroring, and memory rank sparing modes are mutually exclusive. Only one
operational memory mode can be enabled on a server, and it is a system-wide setting.
The following table lists memory options available for the x3500 M4 server.

cooling kit contains three simple swap fans. Certain rules apply to the selection of power supply, these
rules are listed in Table 17. Table 17 uses the following conventions:
A grey cell means that the server can be filled with drives, GPUs, processors and DIMMs up to the
maximum number according to server specifications.
A yellow cell means that the maximum number of drives, GPUs, processors or DIMMs that the
server can hold is fewer than the total number listed in server specifications.

Systems management
The server contains Integrated Management Module II (IMM2), which provides advanced serviceprocessor control, monitoring, and an alerting function. If an environmental condition exceeds a threshold
or if a system component fails, the IMM2 lights LEDs to help you diagnose the problem, records the error
in the event log, and alerts you to the problem. Optionally, the IMM2 also provides a virtual presence
capability for remote server management capabilities.
The IMM2 provides remote server management through industry-standard interfaces:
Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) Version 2.0
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Version 3
Common Information Model (CIM)
Web browser
The optional IMM Advanced Upgrade (software feature) is required to enable the remote presence and
blue-screen capture features. The remote presence feature provides the following functions:
Remotely viewing video with graphics resolutions up to 1600x1200 at 75 Hz with up to 23 bits per
pixel color depths, regardless of the system state
Remotely accessing the server using the keyboard and mouse from a remote client
Mapping the CD or DVD drive, diskette drive, and USB flash drive on a remote client, and mapping
ISO and diskette image files as virtual drives that are available for use by the server
Uploading a diskette image to the IMM memory and mapping it to the server as a virtual drive
The blue-screen capture feature captures the video display contents before the IMM restarts the server
when the IMM detects an operating-system hang condition. A system administrator can use the bluescreen capture to assist in determining the cause of the hang condition. The following table lists the
remote management option.
