I'm trying to install memory into a Dell R610 server, and am honestly at wit's end.
The DIMMS I have are:
- 4 x 4GB DDR3
- 2 x 8GB DDR3
I tried putting in the 4 x 4GB sticks in A1, A2, B1, B2 and the 2 x 8GB sticks in A3, B3 - but it complained:
The following DIMMS should match in size and geometry: DIMM A1, A2 & A3
I then tried putting in the 4 x 4GB sticks all on one CPU - A1, A2, A3 and A4. With the 2 x 8GB sticks on B1, B2.
However, it then complained about:
The memory configuration is not optimal. CPU 1 A1: DIMM A A4: A2: DIMM A A5: A3: DIMM A6: DIMM configuration on each CPU should match.
I tried to follow the guide at http://www.dell.com/downloads/global/products/pedge/en/server-pedge-installing-upgrading-memory-11g.pdf, but couldn't seem to get it optimal.
Does anybody know what configuration I should be using?
