Approved Configurations
(1) 1-CPU configurations:
■
Select any one CPU listed in Table 3.
(2) 2-CPU Configurations:
■
Select two identical CPUs from any one of the rows of Table 3 on page 10.
Caveats
■
You can select either one processor or two identical processors.
■
For optimal performance, select DIMMs with the highest clock speed for a given processor
(see Table 3 on page 10). If you select DIMMs whose speeds are lower or higher than that
shown in the tables, suboptimal performance will result.

Select 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 4.
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.

CONFIGURING the SERVER
Caveats
■
For optimum performance:
—
Populate at least one DIMM per memory channel per CPU
—
Do not mix DIMMs with different voltages, frequencies, or types (registered and
unregistered). If you mix 1.35 V and 1.5 V DIMMs, the system defaults to the 1.5 V
mode. If you mix DIMM frequencies, the system defaults to the lower frequency.
■
DIMMs for CPU 1 and CPU 2 (when populated) must always be configured identically.
■
Memory mirroring reduces the amount of available memory by 50% (quantity of DIMMs must
be even for mirroring).
■
When single- and dual-rank DIMMs are populated for 3DPC, always populate the dual-rank
DIMM in the blue DIMM slot first (blue slot) and the single-rank DIMM last in the black DIMM
slots (only the 4GB DIMMs are single-rank; all other DIMMs that Cisco offers on this server are
dual-rank).
■
By default, all DIMMs run at 1.35 V, which yields 1333-MHz memory speeds. To run the
memory DIMMS at 1600 MHz, you need to go into the BIOS or set the policy with UCSM
(service profile) to run in Performance Mode. This forces the DIMMs to operate at 1.5 V and
yields 1600-MHz speeds, provided:
■
—
The DIMMs are 1600-MHz devices
—
The CPUs chosen support 1600-MHz operation
—
There are less than 3 DIMMs per channel
With 3 DIMMs populated per channel, memory always runs at 1.5 V regardless if the BIOS
setting is low-power mode (1.35 V) or performance mode (1.5 V).
NOTE: Memory speed is limited to 1066 MHz for 3 DPC configurations.
For more information regarding memory, see CPUs and DIMMs, page 45.

Caveats
■
■
For 1-CPU systems:
—
Only the three PCIe slots on PCIe riser 1 are supported. The three slots are PCIe slots
1, 2, and 3 (see Figure 2 on page 4). These are the three slots on the right when
looking at the rear of the server.
—
Neither the PCIe riser 2 (with the two PCIe slots numbered PCIe 4 and PCIe 5, at the
left when viewing the server from the rear) nor the mezzanine card are supported
on 1-CPU systems.
—
Only a single VIC card (a full-height PCIe card) may be installed on a 1-CPU system,
and it must be installed in slot 2. See Table 1 on page 5 for the slot descriptions.
For 2-CPU systems:
—
Five PCIe slots are supported, three on PCIe riser 1 (PCIe slots 1, 2, and 3) and two
on PCIe riser 2 (PCIe slots 4 and 5).
—
All of the slots are full-height except one.
—
All of the server PCIe adapter cards are half-height cards, with the exception of the
Virtual Interface Card (VIC) (N2XX-ACPCI01), which is a full-height card. Therefore,
two VIC cards may be installed in 2-CPU systems, using slots 2 or 5. Note, however,
that if the server is using UCSM, only slot 2 is supported for the VIC card. See
Table 1 on page 5 for the slot descriptions.
■
All PCIe cards will fit in either slot, except the VIC card, which must be installed in a
full-height slot (slots 2 or 5, except only slot 2 when the server uses UCSM).

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 22.
NOTE: Cisco does not offer a certified drive destruction service as part of this
service.

CPUs and DIMMs
Physical Layout
Each CPU has four DIMM channels:
■
CPU1 has channels A, B, C, and D
■
CPU2 has channels E, F, G, and H
Each DIMM channel has three banks: bank 1, 2, and 3. The blue-colored DIMM banks are for bank 1 and the
black-colored are for banks 2 and 3.
As an example, DIMM slots A1, B1, C1, and D1 belong to bank 1, while A2, B2, C2, and D2 belong to bank 2.
Figure 6 shows how banks and channels are physically laid out on the motherboard. The DIMM slots on the
top (channels A, B, C, and D) are associated with CPU 1, while the DIMM slots on the bottom (channels E, F,
G, and H) are associated with CPU 2. The bank 1 (blue) DIMM slots are always located farther away from a
CPU than the corresponding bank 2 or 3 (black) slots. Bank 1 slots (blue) are populated before bank 2 and 3
slots (black).

Memory Population Rules
When considering the memory configuration of your server, you should take into account the following:
■
For optimum performance, populate at least one DIMM per memory channel per CPU.
■
Each channel has three DIMM slots (for example, channel A = slots A1, A2, and A3).
■
—
A channel can operate with one or two DIMMs installed.
—
If a channel has only one DIMM, populate slot 1 first (the blue slot).
When both CPUs are installed, populate the DIMM slots of each CPU identically.
—
Fill bank 1 blue slots in the channels first: A1, E1, B1, F1, C1, G1, D1, H1
—
Fill bank 2 black slots in the channels second: A2, E2, B2, F2, C2, G2, D2, H2
—
Fill bank 3 black slots in the channels second: A3, E3, B3, F3, C3, G3, D3, H3
■
Any DIMM installed in a DIMM socket for which the CPU is absent is not recognized.
■
Observe the DIMM mixing rules shown in Table 25
Table 25
DIMM Mixing Rules for C240 M3 Server
DIMM Parameter Mixed
Mix Across a Single Bank?
Mix Across Multiple Banks?
DIMM Size (4, 8, 16 GB)
No—Must be same size in the
same bank
Yes—Different banks can use
different DIMM sizes (as long
as all DIMMs in a single bank
use the same DIMM size).
DIMM Speed
(1066, 1333, or 1600 MHz)1
No—Must be same speed in
the same bank.
No—All DIMMs in the server
must be same speed.
DIMM Type (R-DIMM)
No—All DIMMs in a bank must
be same type.
No—All DIMMs in the server
must be same type.
Notes . . .
1. Only 1333 and 1600 MHz DIMMs are currently available for the C240 M3 server.

SUPPLEMENTAL MATERIAL
Recommended Memory Population Order
This section explains the recommended DIMM population order rules for the C240 M3 server.
■
All DIMMs must be DDR3 DIMMs.
■
Mixing of Registered and Unbuffered DIMMs is not allowed per platform.
■
Mixing of ECC and non-ECC DIMMs is not allowed per platform.
■
Mixing of DIMMs with different timing parameters within one channel is allowed.
■
A DDR3-1600 DIMM is allowed only when two DIMM s Per Channel (2DPC) are populated
■
When single and dual rank DIMMs are populated for 3DPC, always populate the dual-rank
DIMM in the blue DIMM slot first (blue slot) and the single-rank DIMM last in the black DIMM
slots.
Follow Table 26 when populating DIMMs in the server.

Low-Voltage DIMM Considerations
The C240 M3 server can be ordered with dual-voltage (1.35 V) DIMMs. Note the following considerations:
■
Low-voltage DIMMs within the server must have the identical manufacturer, type, speed,
and size.
■
Low-voltage DIMMs and standard-voltage DIMMs can be mixed in the same server. Note that
this causes the system BIOS to default to standard-voltage operation (Performance Mode).
That is, the server cannot operate in Power Saving Mode unless all DIMMs are low-voltage
DIMMs.
■
CPUs that have a maximum memory frequency less than 1333 MHz support low-voltage
DIMMs operating in Power Saving Mode only, and do not support Performance Mode.
RAID Summary
The C240 M3 LFF server has a 12-drive backplane with a SAS expander.
■
No embedded RAID support
■
Mezzanine card (UCSC-RAID-11-C220) supports up to 12 drives
■
Mezzanine card (UCSC-RAID-MZ-220) supports up to 12 drives
■
9266-8i and 9266CV-8i PCIe cards support up to 12 drives
NOTE: If you do not select a mezzanine card or a plug-in PCIe RAID card you will
have no RAID at all since the embedded SATA-only RAID controller that supports up to
four SATA-only drives (RAID 0, 1, 10) is not compatible with a SAS expander.

SUPPLEMENTAL MATERIAL
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 24 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) PDU. See Figure 8).

Cisco RP Series PDU models provide two 20-ampere (A) circuit breakers for groups of receptacles. The
effects of a tripped circuit are limited to a receptacle group. Simply press a button to reset that circuit.
