B250 Memory Configuration


We currently have a B250 blade populated with 192GB of 4GB DIMMS. We need to reduce this down to 144GB using the 4GB DIMMS. How should I best populate the banks/channels in this blade?

Should i simply remove DIMMS C7, C6, B7, B6, A7, A6 from BANK 1 and F7, F6, E7, E6, D7, D6 from BANK 2 ??

Paired populate the lower sockets 1st

UCS Unified Computing System:UCS C250 M1, UCS C210 M1 and UCS C200 M1  UCS C210 M1 UCS C250 M1 UCS 5108 UCS 6120XP 6140XP UCS 2104XP UCS B250  6120 6140 Expansion Module : Cisco Blade Servers Cisco Extended Memory  Technology provides connectivity for up to 32 ranks on eight RDIMMs, for  up to 64 GB per DDR3 channel. With three channels per socket and both  sockets populated, this equates to a maximum amount of memory of 384 GB  using industry-standard DDR3 8-GB DIMMs. Each DDR3 channel is buffered  and expanded to four DDR3 subchannels. Instead of directly connecting  one DDR3 channel to the memory controller, four DDR3 subchannels are  connected to the memory controller indirectly. Each DDR3 subchannel can  support two single-, dual-, or quad-rank DDR3 RDIMMs The extended memory  is transparent to software.

Good luck
