Installing memory-module kits
Adding memory to the server is an easy way to make pro-
grams run faster. You can increase the amount of memory
in the server by installing options called
. Each kit contains one industry-standard, dual-inline
memory module (DIMM). The server uses a noninterleaved
The server comes with a dual inline memory module (DIMM)
installed on the system board in DIMM slot 4.
1. When installing additional memory modules, install the
second memory module in the connector labeled
DIMM3, the third in DIMM2, and the fourth in DIMM1.
(See the following illustration for memory connector
2. The Netfinity 3500 M20 server supports 128MB,
256MB, and 512MB DIMMs. These DIMMs can be
installed in any memory slot. The server supports a
minimum of 128MB and a maximum of 2GB of system
memory. See the ServerProven list at
http://www.ibm.com/pc/compat for a list of memory
modules for use with the server.
3. Installing or removing DIMMs changes the configura-
tion information in the server. Therefore, after installing
or removing a DIMM, you must save the new configura-
tion information by using the Configuration/Setup Utility
program. When you restart the server, the system dis-
plays a message indicating that the memory configura-
tion has changed. Start the Configuration/Setup Utility
program and select Save Settings. See “Configuring
the server” on page 33 for more information.
