Attach the ESD Wrist Strap using the instructions on the 3M package. D Class servers that have the H
ot
-
Swap Module installed
will have an EMI cover installed over the Processor/Memory card. To remove the EMI cover:

1.

Loosen the two notches at the bottom of the EMI cover from the tabs on the Processor/Memory card by pushing up and
slightly flexing the E
MI cover until the notches come loose.

2.

Pull the EMI cover down slightly until the two notches at the top of the cover come loose from the tabs at the top of the
server cabinet.

3.

Loosen and remove the SCSI ribbon cable from the Fast/Wide SCSI card.

4.

Remove the other end of the SCSI ribbon cable from the connector on the hot
-
swap backplane, and set the EMI cover and
ribbon cable aside.

1.

Remove the memory sets (DIMMs) currently installed. Push down the ejector handle(s) to eject the DIMMs.

2.

Organize all the DIMMs into the following four groups: 512MB sets, 256MB sets, 128MB sets, 64MB sets, and 32MB s
ets.

3.

Install the sets (2 DIMMs) using the following guidelines. Start with the largest size cards first and work down to the
smallest size (e.g. first 256MB, then 128MB, then 64MB, then 32MB, and then 16MB). Install the sets in the lowest
numbered ava
ilable slots to the highest numbered slots (e.g. first 0A & 0B, then 1A & 1B, then 2A & 2B, then 3A & 3B, ...).
For the D200, D210, and D310 the slots are labeled 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 (e.g. first 0 &1, then 2 & 3, then 4 &5, then 6 & 7
).

Open the white ejector lever (press the ejector lever into the down position). Some systems will have a black ejector lever
on the
other side of the connector. If the black lever is present, press it into the down position.

In order to install the DIMM correctly, the
notched end (e.g. the side of the card where the card does
not

go straight up from the gold fingers) must be oriented toward the
white ejector lever. Insert the DIMM into the connector. Line up the middle of
the DIMM (see the semicircle cutout in the middle
of the gold fingers) with the middle section of the connector. With the DIMM positioned correctly,
firmly and evenly

press or
seat the card into the connector.
Do not "rocker" the DIMM into the connector!

This may damage the DIMM or the connector.
When the DIMM is correctly seated, it will "snap" into the connector. At this point, press the ejector lever(s) into the up
position.

After all the DIMMs have been installed,

check to ensure that they are seated evenly and that all the DIMMs are the same height.
An incorrectly seated DIMM may stick out above the other.

Place the Processor/Memory card back into the system cabinet so that the card rests on th
e metal rails with the large connector
facing into the cabinet. Pull the extractor levers on the Processor/Memory card out away from the card. Slide the
Processor/Memory card into the system cabinet until the large connector is properly seated in the cor
responding system board
connector. Push in the two extractor levers on the Processor/Memory card. Insert and tighten two screws to secure the
Processor/Memory card in the cabinet.


If your server came with an EMI cover installed, and you removed it, you
must reinstall it. Place the EMI cover and SCSI ribbon
cable close enough to the upper cabinet to connect the upper end of the ribbon cable to the connector on the Fast/Wide SCSI c
ard.
Insert the two upper notches of the EMI cover onto the tabs at the to
p of the server cabinet. Flex the EMI cover slightly to insert
the two notches at the bottom of the EMI cover onto the tabs of the processor/memory card. Connect the lower end of the SCSI

ribbon cable on the EMI cover to the backplane connector on the Ho
t
-
Swap Module.


Replace the side panel. Position the hinge tabs of the side panel so that they go into the four slots at the rear of the sys
tem cabinet.
Lower the side panel until the hinge tabs are firmly resting in the slots. Close the side panel. Al
ign and tighten the three captive
screws of the side panel into the holes at the front of the system cabinet.


Replace the front bezel. Place the top of the bezel down onto the top front of the system cabinet, and press the top of the
bezel
down until it
clicks into place. Push the bottom of the bezel into the bottom of the system cabinet front until it clicks into place.
Lock the peripheral door.


Reconnect the power cords.

Power up the peripherals first, then power up
the system. The system memory is automatically configured to the system by the
software. If there is a problem with the installed memory, then the boot process could be halted, or the system could log wa
rning
messages and display hex codes on the LCD on
the front of the system and at the bottom of the console.


Verify or diagnose the new system memory. Reboot the system and stop the system at the Boot Console Interface prompt (PDC>).

Type
ma

to get the main menu. Then type
in

to get the information men
u. Then type
me

to get the memory information. The
memory status table provides the size of the cards installed in each slot and the system memory size.


If the system has errors or the memory status table does not reflect the expected configuration then

the possible error sources are
the DIMMs are not seated properly, the DIMMs are not sequenced correctly, the DIMMs are not paired, or the incorrect value
matching of paired DIMMs. If errors exist or the table does not reflect the expected configuration,
then repeat the installation
procedure but take special care to seat the DIMMs properly and in the correct pair sizes and sequence.
