HP Insight
HP Service Pack for
management softwareProLiant
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 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

providing the input for HP SUM to deploy updates taking into
account all interdepencies, when determining the correct updates
and order of update deployment.

NOTE: The Gigabit Ethernet adapters above transmit from the server at
2000 Mbps, full duplex per port only. For more information, see the "Network
Controller" segment in the Standards Features section.
10 Gigabit Ethernet Mezzanines
NOTE: A 10 Gigabit Ethernet adapter is required for each server blade
connecting to a 10Gb interconnect in bays 3-8 (HP BladeSystem c7000
Enclosure) or bays 2-4 (HP BladeSystem c3000 Enclosure).
NOTE: Each 10 Gigabit Ethernet adapter requires a minimum of 2GB of
server memory.
NOTE: Each 10 Gigabit Either adapter supports linking at 1000Mbps or
10000Mbps when not connected to a Flex-10 enabled module and will link
with all current 1Gb switches at 1Gb.
NOTE: The ROM Based Setup Utility (RBSU) feature allows for the
configuring of a FlexFabric Adapter to any of the supported protocols. For
example iSCSI to FCoE (Fibre Channel over Ethernet). Note that a HP
Virtual Connect profile takes precedence over the setting in this menu. Also,
some FlexFabric Adapters may require that network boot be enabled in order
to configure the protocol. If the protocol is configured without enabling
network boot with certain FlexFabric Adapters, the protocol may not take
effect. Once the protocol has taken effect on the first boot after configuring
this option, network boot may be disabled if desired.

NOTE: The TPM (Trusted Platform Module) is a microcontroller chip that can
securely store artifacts used to authenticate the server platform. These artifacts
can include passwords, certificates and encryption keys. Windows® BitLocker™
Drive Encryption (BitLocker) is a data protection feature available in Windows
Server® 2008. BitLocker leverages the enhanced security capabilities of a
Trusted Platform Module (TPM) version 1.2. The TPM works with BitLocker to
help protect user data and to ensure that a server running Windows Server 2008
has not been tampered with while the system was offline.
NOTE: For more information about TPM, including a white paper, go to:
http://www.hp.com/go/TPM
NOTE: ProLiant OS pre-installed units will come with the partition required for
TPM deployment.
NOTE: The TPM key is unique to every TPM deployed server and must be
retained. Misplacing or losing the key could result in data loss.

Memory
NOTE: Memory configurations listed do not apply to "Factory Integrated Models".
Memory Population Guidelines
For detailed memory configuration rules and guidelines, please use the Online DDR3 Memory Configuration Tool:
www.hp.com/go/ddr3memory-configurator
Some DIMM installation guidelines are summarized below;
For the BL490c G7 server with eighteen (18) memory slots:
There are three (3) channels per processor; six (6) channels per server
There are three (3) DIMM slots for each memory channel; eighteen (18) total slots
Memory channel 1 consists of the three (3) DIMMs that are closest to the processor
Memory channel 3 consists of the three (3) DIMMs that are furthest from the processor
DIMM slots that are white should be populated first
Do not mix Unbuffered memory (UDIMMs) with Registered memory (RDIMMs)
Do not install DIMMs if the corresponding processor is not installed
If only one processor is installed in a 2CPU system, only half of the DIMM slots are available
To maximize performance, balance the total memory capacity between all installed processors
It is not required, but it is recommended to load the channels similarly if possible
If any Quad rank DIMMs are installed, all channels are limited to only 2 DIMMs per channel
You can only install two quad-rank DIMMs per channel
You can only install two UDIMMs per channel; the third slot in the channel must remain empty
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
For memory mirroring mode, channel 3 must be unpopulated. Channels 1 and 2 are populated identically
For lock-step mode, channel 3 must be unpopulated. DIMMs in channels 1 and 2 will be installed in pairs. The paired
slots will be 1,4; 2,5; 3;6 on a 3DPC system or 1,4; 2,5; on a 2DPC system
Low Voltage DIMMs can only be used with Intel Xeon 5600 series processors.
If mixing DIMM voltage is a requirement, please note that the DIMMs will run at 1.5V since all 1.35V are capable of
supporting 1.5V operations

Memory
NOTES:
PC3-10600 DIMMs have a maximum speed of 1333MHz. PC3-8500 DIMMs have a maximum speed of
1066MHz
Mixing DIMM speeds is allowed, but the system processor speed rules always override the DIMM capabilities
If you do mix DIMM speeds, the memory bus will default to the minimum clock rate of all DIMMs in the system even if the slower DIMM is on the other processor
If you install 1x 1066MHz DIMM in channel 1 and 1x 1333MHz DIMM in channel 2, the maximum speed will be
1066MHz
If you install 1x 1066MHz DIMM in channel 1 and 5x 1333MHz DIMMs with 1 DIMM Per Channel (DPC) in each
of the other channels, the maximum speed will be 1066MHz
If you install 3DPC in one channel (if applicable) and 1DPC in all other channels, you run at 800MHz
Maximum memory speed will also depend on the processor installed
References to the above MHz speeds are for the various speeds of DDR3 DIMMs; 1333 refers to DDR3-1333,
etc

NOTE: For optimal cooling and system performance the BL490c G7
requires the c7000 enclosure to be configured with 10 fans and the
c3000 enclosure to be configured with 6 fans.
Operating
10° to 35°C (50° to 95°F) at sea level with an
altitude derating of 1.0°C per every 305 m
(1.8°F per every 1000 ft) above sea level to a
maximum of 3050 m (10,000 ft), no direct
sustained sunlight. Maximum rate of change
is 10°C/hr (18°F/hr). The upper limit may be
limited by the type and number of options
installed.
System performance may be reduced if
operating with a fan fault or above 30°C
(86°F).

change is 20°C/hr (36°F/hr).
Operating
10 to 90% relative humidity (Rh), 28°C
(82.4°F) maximum wet bulb temperature, noncondensing.
Non-operating
5 to 95% relative humidity (Rh), 38.7°C
(101.7°F) maximum wet bulb temperature,
non-condensing.
Operating
3050 m (10,000 ft). This value may be limited
by the type and number of options installed.
Maximum allowable altitude change rate is
457 m/min (1500 ft/min).
Non-operating
9144 m (30,000 ft). Maximum allowable
altitude change rate is 457 m/min (1500
