Configuration notes:

  • The Intel Xeon Gold 5218 and 5218B processors have similar specifications; however, they use different silicon designs and cannot be mixed in the same system.
  • The processors that support SST-PP offer three distinct operating points that are defined by a core count with a base speed associated with that core count. The operating point is static, it is selected during the boot process and cannot be changed at runtime.

For the SR550 server models that come standard with one processor, the second processor can be ordered, if required (see the following table for ordering information). The second processor must be of the same model as the first processor. The second processor option includes a processor and a heatsink; an additional system fan is not included and needs to be purchased with the second processor (see Cooling for details).

Memory

The SR550 server supports up to 6 TruDDR4 memory RDIMMs when one processor is installed and up to 12 RDIMMs when two processors are installed for a total of up to 768 GB of memory capacity (up to 384 TB per processor). Each processor has six memory channels, and there is a one DIMM per channel.

Lenovo TruDDR4 memory uses the highest-quality components sourced from Tier 1 DRAM suppliers and only memory that meets strict requirements is selected. It is compatibility tested and tuned on every ThinkSystem server to maximize performance and reliability.

TruDDR4 memory has a unique signature programmed into the DIMM, which enables Lenovo servers to verify whether the memory installed is qualified and supported. Lenovo qualified and supported TruDDR4 memory is covered by Lenovo warranty, and service and support provided worldwide.

The following memory protection technologies are supported by the processor's integrated memory controllers:

  • ECC
  • SDDC (for x4-based memory DIMMs)
  • ADDDC (for x4-based memory DIMMs; Gold and Platinum processors only)
  • Memory mirroring
  • Memory rank sparing
  • Patrol scrubbing
  • Demand scrubbing

The following table lists memory options available for the SR550 server.

* The maximum quantity shown is with one processor / two processors.

Configuration notes:

  • All RDIMMs in the server operate at the same speed, which is determined as the lowest value of:
    • RDIMM rated speed (2666 MHz or 2933 MHz).
    • Memory speed supported by the specific processor (2133 MHz, 2400 MHz, 2666 MHz, or 2933 MHz).
    Note: Maximum memory speed can be achieved when Max performance mode is enabled in UEFI.
  • Mixing RDIMMs of different ranks (single- or dual-rank), DRAM chip types (x4 or x8), speeds (2666 MHz or 2933 MHz), and capacities (8 GB, 16 GB, 32 GB, or 64 GB) is supported in the independent channel mode (the default operational mode).
  • For server configurations with memory protection, the following rules apply:
    • Single Device Data Correction (SDDC) works only in the independent channel mode and supports only x4-based memory DIMMs.
    • Adaptive Double Device Data Correction (ADDDC) works with x4-based memory DIMMs and requires two DIMM ranks per channel, Intel Xeon Gold or Platinum processors, and the Closed Page memory access mode.
    • If memory mirroring is used, then DIMMs must be installed in quantities of 2 or 4 per processor for mirroring across two memory channels, or in quantities of 3 or 6 per processor for mirroring across three memory channels. Mixing two- and three-channel mirroring in the server is allowed (one processor uses two-channel mirroring, and another processor uses three-channel mirroring). All DIMMs in the server must be identical in type and size.
    • If memory rank sparing is used, then a minimum of two ranks must be installed per populated channel (a least one dual-rank or quad-rank DIMM; single-rank DIMMs are not supported). With rank sparing, one rank in each populated channel is reserved as spare memory for other ranks on the same channel. All DIMMs in the server must be identical in type and size.
    • SDDC, memory mirroring, and memory rank sparing modes are mutually exclusive. Only one operational memory mode can be enabled on the server.

Internal storage

The SR550 server supports the following internal drive bay configurations:

  1. 8 LFF SATA Simple Swap drive bays
  2. 8 LFF SAS/SATA hot-swap drive bays
  3. 12 LFF SAS/SATA hot-swap drive bays
  4. Up to 16 SFF hot-swap drive bays: 8x 2.5" SAS/SATA + 8x 2.5" SAS/SATA

In addition, the SR550 server models can be configured with one or two internal M.2 SATA SSDs. The server also supports configurations without drive bays.

The External USB DVD RW Optical Disk Drive supports the following types of media: CD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-ROM, DVD-RW, and DVD+RW.

I/O expansion

The SR550 server supports one LOM card slot and up to six PCIe slots: one PCIe slot on the system planar and up to five PCIe slots with different riser cards installed into two riser sockets on the system planar (one riser socket supports installation of one riser card).

The slot form factors are as follows:

  • LOM card slot
  • Slot 1: PCIe 3.0 x16 or PCIe 3.0 x8; full-height, half-length (PCIe x16 slot is double-wide)
  • Slot 2: PCIe 3.0 x8; full-height, half-length (not present if the slot 1 is PCIe x16)
  • Slot 3: PCIe 3.0 x8 or ML2 x8; full-height, half-length
  • Slot 4: PCIe 3.0 x8; low profile (vertical slot on system planar)
  • Slot 5: PCIe 3.0 x16; full-height, half-length
  • Slot 6: PCIe 3.0 x8; full-height, half-length

Notes:

  • Slot 5 requires the second processor to be installed.
  • Slot 4 is not present if the COM Port Upgrade Kit is installed.

The locations of the PCIe slots are shown in the following figure.

Slot locations
Figure 8. Slot locations

Riser 1 supplies slots 1, 2, and 3, and Riser 2 supplies slots 5 and 6. The slots that are available for use depend on the number of riser cards that are installed and whether the second processor is installed, as shown in the following table.

The COM Port Upgrade Kit, part number 7Z17A02577, is used for mounting the external serial port on the rear of the SR550. This option includes the bracket and the cable. The COM Port option is mounted in place of the PCIe slot 4, and the PCIe slot 4 cannot be used.

Network adapters

The SR550 server has two onboard 1 GbE ports (no 10/100 Mb support) and up to two additional onboard 1/10 GbE network ports (no 10/100 Mb support) with optional LOM cards. Onboard ports and LOM cards use the Intel Ethernet Connection X722 1/10 GbE technology integrated into the Intel C622 Platform Controller Hub (PCH). The server also supports ML2 adapters that are installed in the custom ML2 slot provided by an ML2 riser card. The LOM cards support direct connectivity to the XClarity Controller via the Network Controller Sideband Interface (NSCI) for out-of-band systems management.

Note: ML2 network adapters do not support NSCI when used in the SR550 server.

The integrated Intel Ethernet Connection X722 has the following features:

  • Two 1 Gb Ethernet ports (no 10/100 Mb Ethernet support)
  • Two 1/10 Gb Ethernet capable ports (no 10/100 Mb Ethernet support)
  • NIC Teaming (load balancing and failover)
  • Data Center Bridging
  • iWARP (RDMA over IP)
  • VMDq and SR-IOV virtualization (10 Gb speeds only, 4 PFs, 128 VFs per device)
  • IEEE 802.1q Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs)
  • NVGRE, VXLAN, IPinGRE, and MACinUDP network virtualization
  • IEEE 802.1Qbg Edge Virtual Bridging
  • TCP, IP, and UDP checksum offload
  • Large Send Offload (LSO) and Generic Send Offload (GSO)
  • Receive Side Scaling (RSS) for TCP and UDP traffic
  • Jumbo frames up to 9.5 Kbytes
