Server configuration guidelines
Rear panel components
Read the following items before performing any of the installation
procedures described in later sections.
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.

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.
