WARNING: Failure to properly turn off the system power before you open the server or before you start removing or installing hardware components may cause serious damage as well as bodily harm. WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury from hot surfaces, allow the chassis and any installed hardware component to cool before touching them. CAUTION: Observe the ESD precautions, pre- and postinstallation procedures, and proper cabling management described in Chapter 2 of your server’s Maintenance and Service Guide when performing any installation procedure.

Install the new hard drive into the drive bay. 5. Connect the signal and power cables to the drive. The system has six DIMM slots that support both unbuffered and registered DIMM (UDIMM and RDIMM) with ECC support. Getting additional documentation Refer to your server’s Easy Set-up CD for additional information and updates not provided in this installation sheet. You can also access additional information and documentation from the HP website at http://www.hp.com/, either by connecting directly or through the Easy Set-up CD. Installing a hard drive The server has four HDD bays that support 3.5-inch-hot-plug or non-hot-plug SATA and SAS drives. The type and capacity of drives vary based on the server model. IMPORTANT: If you are going to switch from a SATA to a SAS HDD configuration, install the SAS controller board first. It is recommended that this controller board be installed in the full-height/full-length PCI-E Gen2 x16 riser board. After installing the controller board, remove the HDD SATA cables and install the SAS HDD and LED cables. SATA HDD Memory installation guidelines Observe the following important guidelines when installing memory modules: Hot-plug hard drive installation 1. Slide the hard drive assembly into the drive bay until it stops. 2. Press the hard drive carrier latch inward until it clicks. Use only the following HP approved DIMM types: o PC3-10600 UDIMM in 1 or 2 GB capacities o 2 GB PC3-10600 RDIMM o 4 GB PC3-8500 RDIMM Populate the DIMM slots in the following sequence: o DIMM3A and DIMM6B o DIMM2C and DIMM5D o DIMM1E and DIMM4F Installation of DIMMs with varying speed is not supported. Mixing UDIMM and RDIMM is not supported. Non-ECC DIMMs are not supported. Legal notices © Copyright 2009 Hewlett-Packard Development Company, L.P.
