Figure 3 Removing the server
Pre- and Post-installation
When installing additional options in your HP ProLiant SL170z G6
Server, observe the following procedures:
Pre-installation Procedures
Turn off the server and all the peripherals connected to it.
Remove the server from the chassis by following the procedure
described later in the “Removing the server” section.
Post-installation Procedures
Be sure all components are installed according to the described
step-by-step instructions.
Check to make sure you have not left loose tools or parts inside
the server.
Reinstall the PCI riser, peripherals, and system cables that you
have removed.
Reinstall the server into the chassis.
Connect all external cables to the system.
Press the power button on the front panel to turn on the server.
Removing the Server
You need to remove the server from the chassis before you can remove
or replace a server component.
CAUTION: When the servers are operational, tray blank
577723-001 (HP option kit PN 579069-B21) must be
installed in the server slot after removal of the server.
To remove the server:
Press the tray latch to release the tray handle.
Rotate the tray handle to disengage the power connector.
Pull the server tray assembly out of the chassis.
Install the tray blank in the server slot.

Installing a Hard Disk Drive
Figure 6 Installing a memory module
Each chassis can accommodate two server trays. Each server tray can
accommodate six LFF hard disk drives for a maximum of 12 LFF hard
disk drives per chassis. The server supports both SAS and SATA hard
disk drives.
CAUTION: Drives can be damaged by static electricity. Before
handling drives, touch an unpainted metal surface to discharge
static electricity.
To install a hard disk drive:
Unlock the HDD carrier latches.
Rotate the HDD carrier handle up.
Insert the HDD carrier and align the four pins.
Rotate the HDD carrier handle down.
Lock the HDD carrier latches.
Figure 5 Installing a hard disk drive
DIMM slots are structured to ensure proper installation. If you insert a
DIMM but it does not fit easily into the slot, you may have inserted it
incorrectly. Reverse the orientation of the DIMM and insert it again.
Installing a Processor
The HP ProLiant SL170z G6 server supports Intel Nehalem 5500 Series
Processors High Wattage 80W and Intel Xeon 5600 Series Processor
High Wattage 130W, and Intel Nehalem 5500 Series Processors Low
Wattage 60W and Intel Xeon 5600 Series Processors Low Wattage
To install a processor:
CAUTION: Use the processor installation tool to insert the
processor into the socket. The processor and system board
spare part kits contain the processor installation tool and
instructions on how to use the tool. It is important to follow
the instructions to prevent damage to the pins in the
processor socket.
CAUTION: Failure to completely open the processor
locking lever prevents the processor from seating during
installation, leading to hardware damage.
Installing a Memory Module
The following guidelines must be followed when memory modules are
being added or replaced:
Support ZKPG DDR3 DIMMs using 1G, 2G, 4G, 8G, DDR3 DRAMs.
Supported configurations:
One DIMM per processor: 8A for CPU1; 8A for CPU2.
Three DIMMs per processor: 8A, 5B, 2C for CPU1; 8A, 5B,
2C for CPU2.
Six DIMMs per processor: 8A, 7D, 5B, 4E, 2C, 1F for
CPU1; 8A, 7D, 5B, 4E, 2C, 1F for CPU2.
Eight DIMMs per processor: 8A, 7D, 6G, 5B, 4E, 3H, 2C,
1F for CPU1; 8A, 7D, 6G, 5B, 4E, 3H, 2C, 1F for CPU2.
CAUTION: DIMMs can be damaged by improper handling.
Always use an anti-static wrist strap and grounding mat, and
discharge static electricity before touching DIMMs.
To install a memory module:
Align the notch on the bottom edge of the module with the keyed
surface of the DIMM slot and then press the module fully into the
Firmly press the holding clips inward to secure the memory
module in place.
Open the processor locking lever and the processor socket
retaining bracket. Do not remove the processor socket cover.

IMPORTANT: Be sure the processor remains inside the
processor installation tool.
FRAGILE AND EASILY DAMAGED. To avoid damage to the
system board:
If the processor has separated from the installation tool, carefully
re-insert the processor in the tool. Handle the processor by the
edges only, and do not touch the bottom of the processor,
especially the contact area.
Figure 8 Reinserting a processor
Never install or remove a processor without using the
processor installation tool.
Do not touch the processor socket contacts.
Do not tilt or slide the processor when lowering the
processor into the socket.
Press the tabs on the processor installation tool to separate it from
the processor, and then remove the tool.

Align the processor installation tool with the socket, and then
install the processor. THE PINS ON THE SYSTEM BOARD ARE
Figure 9 Installing a processor
Close the processor socket retaining bracket and the processor
locking lever. The processor socket cover is automatically
ejected. Remove the cover.
Figure 11 Closing the bracket and lever, and removing the cover
CAUTION: Be sure to close the processor socket retaining
bracket before closing the processor locking lever. The
lever should close without resistance. Forcing the lever
closed can damage the processor and socket, requiring
system board replacement.
For processor removal, reverse the above installation procedures
being sure to use the processor tool to remove the processor.
To install the heatsink:
CAUTION: Heatsink screws should be tightened and loosened
in opposite sequence. Do not overtighten the screws as this can
damage the system board, connectors, or screws. A maximum
torque of 6-8 in-lb is set for the system.
Additional Documentation
For additional documentation, refer to HP ProLiant SL170z G6 Easy
Set-up CD. You can also access additional information and
documentation from the HP external website, either by connecting
directly or through the Easy Set-up CD.
CAUTION: Be sure that the heatsink sits squarely on the
processor, or overheating and damage to the processor may
Position the heatsink on the processor backplate.
Tighten the first screw about three quarters in, then tighten the
second screw completely.
Completely tighten the first screw.

Documentation Feedback
HP is committed to providing documentation that meets your needs. To
help us improve the documentation, send any errors, suggestions, or
comments to Documentation Feedback
(mailto:[email protected]). Include the document title and part
number, version number, or the URL when submitting your feedback.
IMPORTANT: If the heatsink has been removed for any reason,
it is critical that you apply more thermal interface material to the
integrated heat spreader on the processor to ensure proper
thermal bonding between the processor and the hea sink.
Clean the contact surface of both the processor and heatsink
with an alcohol pad, and then re-apply an HP-approved
thermal interface material before reinstalling the processor. Use
a pattern of five dots when applying the thermal interface
material—one dot in the center, and one dot at each corner.
