HP ROM (Read Only Memory) is now digitally signed using HP's Corporate Signing Service. This signature is
verified before the flash process starts, reducing accidental programming and preventing malicious efforts
to corrupt system ROM.
HP ROM provides for essential initialization and validation of hardware components before control is
passed to the customer-installed operating system. The ROM also provides the capability of booting from
various fixed media (HDD, CD-ROM) and removable media (USB), to continue operation to the operating
system.
HP ROM performs very early configuration of the video controller, to allow monitoring of initialization
progress via an attached monitor. If configuration or hardware errors are discovered during this early
phase of hardware initialization, suitable messages are now displayed on the connected monitor.
Additionally, these configuration or hardware errors are logged to the Integrated Management Log (IML) to
assist in diagnosis.
HP's ProLiant ROM is used to configure the following:
Processor and chipset status registers
System memory, memory map, and memory initialization
System hardware configuration (Integrated PCI devices and optional PCIe cards).
Customer-specific BIOS configuration (using the HP ROM-Based Setup Utility (RBSU).
NOTE: For further information, please refer to HP's RBSU (ROM based setup utility) user guide:

ProLiant and Integrity servers, as well as HP Storage solutions, and are designed to provide the highest
power supply efficiency without degrading system performance. HP CS power supplies are tested by the
Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) and certified through the ECOS 80 Plus power supply program. HP
CS power supply options provide efficiency ratings of up to 94% (80 Plus Platinum) and are available in
two power output options - 750W and 1200W - allowing the customer to "right-size" a power supply for
their specific server configuration. All HP Common Slot power sources are UL, CE Mark Compliant, hot-plug
and support redundant configurations.
NOTE: Mixing of power supplies in the same server is not supported. All power supplies must be of the
same output and efficiency rating. If non-matched power supplies are inserted you will get errors and
operation will fail.
It is highly recommended that you use the HP Power Advisor in defining the "Right-Size" power supply for
your needs. HP Power Advisor can be accessed at: www.hp.com/go/hppoweradvisor.
NOTE: The 80 PLUS program is a unique forum that unites electric utilities, the computer industry, and
consumers in an effort to bring energy efficient technology solutions to the marketplace. 80 Plus
independently tests power supply efficiency and publicly posts the results on 80Plus.org.
Redundant Power: Optional (1+ 1 or n+n redundant) power supplies can be purchased through power
supply option kits (see Power Supplies for part numbers).

HP Service Pack for
ProLiant (SPP)
HP Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) and HP Smart Update Manager (HP SUM)
version 5 provide a new, comprehensive approach to firmware and system
software maintenance. Together they provide better operating stability and
ensure maximum uptime. The SPP will be updated at a predictable cadence,
typically coinciding with new HP server hardware launches. By enabling all
firmware to be updated online and integrating firmware and system software
updates in one operation HP SUM and the SPP offer faster updates of
individual servers and dramatically faster updates of entire BladeSystem
enclosures. Further improving system uptime and stability is the fact that HP
provides 12 months of support on each Service Pack for ProLiant.
The user experience around HP SUM and the SPP has been improved in several
ways, starting with the web download. A single web page provides access to a
single download containing both the latest version of HP SUM version 5 and
the latest SPP. Optional smaller subsets with only specific types of servers or
specific operating systems are offered to save on download time. The HP SUM
application has been re-written to provide a more straightforward, intuitive
user interface that guides the user through the steps of discovery, analyses
and update, providing comprehensive information on available updates,
criticality and interdependencies. This information is also available in reports.
By providing the option of multiple local or shared repositories which can be
easily updated from hp.com, HP SUM provides the tools to optimize stability
and consistency throughout the company. While HP SUM and the SPP will
recommend the combinations of firmware and system software that HP has
found to be the best practice, the application gives customers the flexibility to
set their own specific baseline.
The Service Pack for ProLiant has been rigorously tested with specific
attention for interaction between firmware, drivers and agents both within the
server as well as in interaction with the BladeSystem enclosure components
(Onboard Administrator and Virtual Connect). This testing ensures the highest
quality as well as providing the input for HP SUM to deploy updates taking into
account all interdependencies, when determining the correct updates and
order of update deployment.
NOTE: The Service Pack for ProLiant (which includes HP SUM 5) can be
downloaded from www.hp.com/go/spp/download. More information can be

Memory
HP ProLiant SL250s Gen8 Server
NOTE: Memory configurations listed do not apply to "Factory Integrated Models".
NOTE: Chart does not represent all possible memory configurations.
DDR3 memory population guidelines
For detailed memory configuration rules and guidelines, please use the Online DDR3 Memory Configuration Tool:
www.hp.com/go/ddr3memory-configurator
Each Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 family processor socket contains four memory channels that support two DIMMs each for a total of eight
(8) DIMM per installed processor or a grand total of sixteen (16) DIMMs for the server. Up to 16GB capacity DIMMs are supported for
256GB of memory (16 DIMM slots x 16GB per DIMM).
Memory Population Rules and Guidelines:
White DIMM slots denote the first slot of a channel. For 1 DPC (DIMM per channel) populate white slots only.
Install DIMMs only if the corresponding processor is installed.
If only one processor is installed in a two processor system, only half of the DIMM slots are available.
To maximize performance, it is recommended to balance the total memory capacity between all installed processors and to load
the channels similarly whenever possible.
Populate DIMMs from heaviest load (quad-rank) to lightest load (single-rank) within a channel
Heaviest load (DIMM with most ranks) within a channel goes furthest from the processor
RDIMMs operating at either 1.35V or 1.5V may be mixed in any order, but the system will power them at the higher voltage.
Do not mix RDIMMs and UDIMMs.
The Intel Xeon E5-2620 processor does not support DIMMs at 1.35V. Using the HP RBSU, 1.35V DIMMs can be changed to operate
at 1.5V.
The Intel Xeon E5-2620 processor does not support DIMMs at 1.35V. Using the HP RBSU, 1.35V DIMMs can be changed to operate
at 1.5V.
DIMMs of different speeds may be mixed in any order; the server will select a common optimal speed.
The maximum memory speed is a function of the memory type, memory configuration, and processor model.
