Memory module installation rules and order
Memory modules must be installed in a specific order based on the memory configuration that you implement and the number of processors and memory modules installed in the server.
Supported memory types
For information on the types of memory module supported by this server, see Memory section in Technical Specifications.
For a list of supported memory options, see Lenovo ServerProven website.
Information about optimizing memory performance and configuring memory is available at the Lenovo Press website:
In addition, you can take advantage of a memory configurator, which is available at the following site:
Specific information about the required installation order of memory modules in your server based on the system configuration and memory mode that you are implementing is shown below.
Memory modules and processors layout
Slot No.: DIMM slot number in each memory channel. Each memory channel has two DIMM slots: slot 0 (further from the processor) and slot 1 (closer to the processor).
DIMM No.: DIMM slot number on the processor board. Each processor has 16 DIMM slots.
Memory module installation guideline
- For the installation rules and population sequence, see DDR5 DIMMs installation order.
At least one DIMM is required for each processor. Install at least eight DIMMs per processor for good performance.
When you replace a DIMM, the server provides automatic DIMM enablement capability without requiring you to use the Setup Utility to enable the new DIMM manually.
