Power Edge 1435 Memory upgrade.

  • Hi
     
    I have recieved 5 units from dell today i am trying to one of them to 4gb
     
    8x 512MB 4 Out of another dell that came.
     
    I have a problem with it saying the memory configuration is not optimal and also its still reading 2gb
     
    Please can you advise how i get it to read the correct amount
     
    I also have another unit needing 3gb with a extra 2x 512
     
    They are exactly the same dimms that has come out of another server thats come today
     
    Thanks,
    Darren
  • Memory channels on the 1435 and 2970 servers are dedicated to processors.  So the first four memory banks are dedicated to processor 1, and the last four are dedicated to processor 2.  So I would assume these are single processor systems?  If that's the case, then that's the problem....you won't see the last four DIMM slots until you install a second physical processor.
