Memory problems in Blade 6340

We have a 6000 chassis with three blades in it. Two of the blades have "Oracle/Sun" memory in them with no complaints. The third blade is populated with Dataram dimms. That 3rd blade continues to flag a slot bad. Oracle has said they would not support the blade with Dataram memory it it. I didn't purchase the ram, but our purchasing guy say he was told it was compatible with the blade prior to the purchase. Has anyone else had similar problems? One the thing notice is even moving the so-called bad dimm, doesn't follow. It still shows up as the same slot. We have tried two different blades and the only difference we notice is voltage. The voltage required for the "Oracle/Sun" memory, which is actually Samsung, is different from the requirement for the 3rd party Dataram memory.

Your purchasing guy is full of you-know-what. He was looking for brownie points with his boss.

Get the right memory. Doesn't it sound odd to you that the memory voltage requirements are not the the same for 'compatible' memory?

Sun Blade T6320 memory configuration

Can you mix DIMMs in a T6320 (sparc) blade? I have read/heard that the DIMMs in a memory bay must be identical but can you have different size DIMMs installed in the blade? For instance, can you have 1 4GB DIMM in bay 0, 2 2GB DIMMs in bay 1, 4 1 GB DIMMs in bay 2 and 2 2GB DIMMs in bay 3 for a... (0 Replies)
