Memory options

Lenovo DDR3 memory is compatibility tested and tuned for optimal System x performance and throughput. Lenovo memory specifications are integrated into the light path diagnostics for immediate system performance feedback and optimum system uptime. From a service and support standpoint, Lenovo memory automatically assumes the system warranty, and Lenovo provides service and support worldwide.

The System x3650 M4 BD supports DDR3 memory. The server supports up to eight DIMMs when one processor is installed and up to 16 DIMMs when two processors are installed. Each processor has four memory channels, and there are two DIMMs per channel.

The following rules apply when selecting the memory configuration:

  • The server supports UDIMMs, RDIMMs, and LRDIMMs.
  • Mixing different types of memory (UDIMMs, RDIMMs, and LRDIMMs) is not supported.
  • Mixing 1.5 V and 1.35 V DIMMs is not supported.
  • The maximum number of ranks per one channel is eight (with the exception of Load Reduced DIMMs where more than eight ranks are supported because one quad-rank LRDIMM provides the reduced electrical load on a memory bus).
  • The maximum quantity of DIMMs that can be installed in the server depends on the number of processors, DIMM type, rank, and operating voltage, as shown in the "Max. qty supported" row in Table 5.
  • All DIMMs in the server operate at the same speed, which is determined as the lowest value of:
    • Memory speed that is supported by the specific processor.
    • Lowest of maximum operating speeds for selected memory configuration that depends on rated speed, operating voltage, and quantity of DIMMs per channel, as shown under "Maximum operating speed" section in the table.

The following memory protection technologies are supported:

  • ECC
  • Chipkill (for x4-based memory DIMMs)
  • Memory mirroring
  • Memory rank sparing

Chipkill works only in independent channel mode (the default is operational mode) and supports only x4-based memory DIMMs.

If memory mirroring is used, then DIMMs must be installed in pairs (a minimum of one pair per each processor, and a maximum of two pairs per processor), and both DIMMs in a pair must be identical in type and size.

If memory rank sparing is used, then two single-rank or dual-rank DIMMs must be installed per populated channel (the DIMMs do not need to be identical). In rank sparing mode, one rank of a DIMM in each populated channel is reserved as spare memory. The size of a rank varies depending on the DIMMs installed.

Chipkill, memory mirroring, and memory rank sparing modes are mutually exclusive. Only one operational memory mode can be enabled on a server, and it is a system-wide setting.

The following table (Parts 1 and 2) shows the characteristics of the supported DIMMs. Tables cells that are highlighted with a gray background indicate when the combination of DIMM voltage and the number of DIMMs per channel still allows the DIMMs to operate at a rated speed.

Remote management

The server contains Integrated Management Module II (IMM2), which provides advanced service-processor control, monitoring, and an alerting function. If an environmental condition exceeds a threshold or if a system component fails, the IMM2 lights LEDs to help you diagnose the problem, records the error in the event log, and alerts you to the problem. Optionally, the IMM2 also provides a virtual presence capability for remote server management capabilities.

The IMM2 provides remote server management through industry-standard interfaces:

  • Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) Version 2.0
  • Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Version 3
  • Common Information Model (CIM)
  • Web browser

The optional Integrated Management Module Advanced Upgrade is required to enable the remote presence and blue-screen capture features. The remote presence feature provides the following functions:

  • Remotely viewing video with graphics resolutions up to 1600x1200 at 75 Hz with up to 23 bits per pixel, regardless of the system state
  • Remotely accessing the server using the keyboard and mouse from a remote client
  • Mapping the CD or DVD drive, diskette drive, and USB flash drive on a remote client, and mapping ISO and diskette image files as virtual drives that are available for use by the server
  • Uploading a diskette image to the IMM memory and mapping it to the server as a virtual drive

The blue-screen capture feature captures the video display contents before the IMM restarts the server when the IMM detects an operating system hang condition. A system administrator can use the blue-screen capture to assist in determining the cause of the hang condition. The following table lists the remote management option.

Light path diagnostics panel

The light path diagnostics panel allows systems engineers and administrators to easily and quickly diagnose hardware problems on the System x servers. If a failure occurs, a light is illuminated on the front panel of the server (level 1 light path) to alert the systems administrator that there is a problem. This light directs the engineer or administrator directly to the failed component, which also has an illuminated LED near it (light path level 3), for example, the DIMM error LED on the system board.

x3650 M4 BD offers basic light path diagnostics, as shown in the following figure.
