1. If higher or lower speed DIMMs are selected than what is shown in the table for a given CPU, the DIMMs will be
clocked at the lowest common denominator of CPU clock and DIMM clock. For example:
Selecting lower-speed DIMMs: If you use an X5650 CPU (which can support up to 1333-MHz DIMMs) with 1066-MHz
DIMMs, the DIMMs will be clocked at the lower speed of 1066 MHz.
Selecting higher-speed DIMMs: If you use 1333-MHz DIMMs with an E5620 CPU (which can support up to 1066-MHz
DIMMs), the DIMMS will be clocked at the lower speed of 1066 MHz.

CONFIGURING the SERVER
Approved Configurations
(1) Single-CPU configurations:
■
Choose any one CPU listed in Table 3 on page 10 or Table 4 on page 11.
(2) Two-CPU Configurations:
■
Choose two identical CPUs from any one of the rows of Table 3 on page 10 or Table 4 on
page 11.
Caveats
12
■
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 5 on page 14). If you select DIMMs whose speeds are lower or higher than that
shown in the tables, suboptimal performance will result.

■
DDR3 ECC registered DIMMs (RDIMMs), supporting Intel SDDC
■
Memory is organized with three memory channels per CPU, with up to two DIMMs per
channel (DPC), as shown in Figure 4.

CONFIGURING the SERVER
Choose DIMMs and Memory Mirroring
Choose the memory configuration and whether or not you want the memory mirroring option.
The available memory DIMMs and mirroring option are listed in Table 5.
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.

Choose the memory mirroring option (N01-MMIRROR) as shown in Table 5 on page 14.
NOTE: System performance is optimized when the DIMM memory type and the DIMM
quantity is equal for both CPUs.
Caveats
■
DIMM voltage:
—
You can mix dual voltage DIMMs (operate at either 1.5 V or 1.35 V) and single voltage
DIMMs (operate at only 1.5 V).
—
Dual-voltage DIMMs can be operated in either of these modes:
• Power Saving Mode at a maximum speed of 1066 MHz
• Performance Mode at a maximum speed of 1333 MHz
If you mix both types of DIMMs in your configuration, the server forces all DIMMs to
operate in Performance Mode.
■
Memory mirroring:
If you choose the Memory RAS option, be aware that it is available only with an even
number of memory channels. For example, if you choose six DIMMs and select RAS,
Cisco UCS C210 M2 General-Purpose Rack-Mount Server
15
CONFIGURING the SERVER
mirroring will go into effect on only two channels with two DIMMS per channel (you
cannot implement RAS on three channels). In this case, two DIMMS would go unused.
NOTE: For memory mirroring, DIMM pairing across buses must be identical.
If you only have two DIMMs, they need to be the same PID because you have
one DIMM on each of two buses.
If you have four DIMMs in a 2-CPU system, for example, you can have two
4-GB and two 8-GB DIMMs. One 4-GB/8-GB DIMM pair would located on
Channel A of CPU 1, and one 4-GB/8-GB DIMM pair would be located on
Channel D of CPU 2.
If you have four DIMMs in a 1-CPU system, for example, you can have two
4-GB and two 8-GB DIMMs. One 4-GB/8-GB DIMM pair would located on
Channel A of CPU 1, and one 4-GB/8-GB DIMM pair would be located on
Channel B of CPU 1.

STEP 4
CHOOSE RAID CONFIGURATION
The base server motherboard comes with an integrated SATA RAID 0/1 controller, which supports
up to 4 SATA drives only (the integrated controller does not support SAS drives). Therefore, a
separate plug-in PCIe controller card is not required when ordering SATA drives and a RAID 0 or 1
configuration is desired.
You can use the built-in SATA RAID 0/1 controller as described in the preceding paragraph or you
can instead choose to implement a RAID configuration by using the optional mezzanine card on
the server motherboard or by using an optional plug-in PCIe RAID controller card.
Cisco can provide factory-configured RAID 0, 1, 1E, 5, 6, and 10 systems depending on the RAID
implementation chosen and the number of drives ordered. Factory-configured RAID options are
listed at the end of Table 6. Note that RAID levels 50 and 60 are supported on the 9280-4i4e and
9261-8i, but are not factory configurable.
Choose RAID Options
Choose one RAID controller, one RAID configuration option, and, if desired, the battery backup
option listed in Table 6.

ORDER SAS EXPANDER AS NEEDED
You must order a SAS Expander if the system will have more than eight disk drives or you plan to
upgrade to over eight disk drives in the future.
If you do not select a SAS Expander, the SAS Extender comes standard with the UCS C210 M2
server chassis. The SAS Extender supports up to eight disk drives. The SAS Extender option is not
field upgradeable to a SAS Expander. Both the SAS Extender and SAS Expander, however, are

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,
thereby reducing 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 24.
NOTE: Cisco does not offer a certified drive destruction service as part of this
service.

CPUs and DIMMs
Physical Layout
Each CPU has three DIMM channels:
■
CPU1 has channels A, B, and C.
■
CPU2 has channels D, E, and F.
Each DIMM channel has two banks: Bank 1 and Bank 2. The blue-colored DIMM banks are for Bank 1 and the
black-colored DIMM banks are for Bank 2.
As an example, DIMM slots A1, B1, and C1 belong to Bank 1, while A2, B2, and C2 belong to Bank 2.
Figure 7 shows how banks and channels are physically laid out on the motherboard. The DIMM slots on the
right (channels A, B, and C) are associated with CPU1, while the DIMM slots on the left (channels D, E, and
F) are associated with CPU2. The Bank 1 (blue) DIMM slots are always located farther away from a CPU than
the corresponding Bank 2 (black) slots. Bank 1 slots are populated before Bank 2 slots. If only one DIMM is
used for CPU 1, for example, it must be located in slot 2 (A1, channel A, bank 1); likewise, if only one DIMM
is used for CPU 2, it must be installed in slot 2 (D1, channel D, bank 1).

SUPPLEMENTAL MATERIAL
Memory Population Rules
When considering the memory configuration of your server, you should consider the following items:
■
DIMMs within the server should all be the same type and speed. If you mix different DIMM
types or DIMMs with different clock rates in the same server, such configurations are
supported; however, these configurations may cause the system to operate at less than
optimum levels. See Table 27 on page 49 for recommended DIMM combinations.
■
DIMMs can be used either in a one DIMM per Channel (1DPC) configuration or in a two DIMMs
per Channel (2DPC) configuration.
■
There are blue and black DIMM slots. Populate blue slots in a bank first.
■
Low-voltage (1.35 V) DIMM and standard-voltage DIMM (1.5 V) can be mixed in the same
server. Note that this causes the system BIOS to default to standard-voltage operation
(Performance Mode). See Low-Voltage DIMM Considerations.
Low-Voltage DIMM Considerations
The C210 M2 server can be ordered with low-voltage (1.35 V) DIMMs or standard-voltage (1.5 V) DIMMs. Note
the following considerations:
48
■
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.

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 13).
