HP Server ROM HP ROM (read only memory) is now digitally signed using HP's Corporate Signing Service. This signature is verified before the flash process starts, reducing accidental programming and preventing malicious efforts to corrupt system ROM.

HP ROM provides for essential initialization and validation of hardware components before control is passed to the customer-installed operating system. The ROM also provides the capability of booting from various fixed media (HDD, CD-ROM) and removable media (USB), to continue operation to the operating system.

HP ROM performs very early configuration of the video controller, to allow monitoring of initialization progress via an attached monitor. If configuration or hardware errors are discovered during this early phase of hardware initialization, suitable messages are now displayed on the connected monitor. Additionally, these configuration or hardware errors are logged to the Integrated Management Log (IML) to assist in diagnosis.

HP's ProLiant ROM is used to configure the following:
  • Processor and chipset status registers
  • System memory, memory map, and memory initialization
  • System hardware configuration (integrated PCI devices and optional PCIe cards).
  • Customer-specific BIOS configuration using the HP ROM-Based Setup Utility (RBSU).

HP Insight management software

HP Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) HP Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) and HP Smart Update Manager (HP SUM) provide a 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 for each Service Pack for ProLiant release.

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 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 provides a 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 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 Virtual Connect). This testing ensures the highest quality as well as 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 Service Pack for ProLiant (which includes HP SUM) can be downloaded from www.hp.com/go/spp/download. More information can be found: http://www.hp.com/go/SmartUpdate, www.hp.com/go/spp and http://www.hp.com/go/hpsum

Memory

For detailed memory configuration rules and guidelines, please use the Online DDR3 Memory Configuration Tool:
www.hp.com/go/ddr3memory-configurator

Memory Subsystem Architecture
Each Intel® Xeon® E5-2400 family processor socket contains three memory channels that support two DIMMs each for a total of six (6) DIMMs per installed processor or a grand total of twelve (12) DIMMs for the server. Up to 32GB capacity DIMMs are supported for 384GB of memory (12 DIMM slots x 32GB per DIMM).

Memory Population Rules and Guidelines:

  • A minimum of one DIMM is required per server.
  • Install DIMMs only if the corresponding processor is installed.
  • If only one processor is installed in a two processor system, only half of the DIMM slots are available.
  • To maximize performance, it is recommended to balance the total memory capacity between all installed processors and to load the channels similarly whenever possible.
  • RDIMMs operating at either 1.35V or 1.5V may be mixed in any order, but the system will power them at the higher voltage.
  • RDIMMs, LRDIMMs, and UDIMMs cannot be mixed.
  • DIMMs of different speeds may be mixed in any order; the server will select a common optimal speed.
  • The maximum memory speed is a function of the memory type, memory configuration, and processor model.
  • The maximum memory capacity is a function of the memory type and number of installed processors.
  • HP memory from previous generation servers is not compatible with the BL420c Gen8 Server Blade.
  • To realize the performance memory capabilities listed in this document, HP SmartMemory is required. For additional information, please see the HP SmartMemory QuickSpecs at: http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/14225_na/14225_na.html.
  • For memory population rules and additional memory guidelines, please see the BL420c Gen8 user guide at http://www.hp.com/support.
