Re: How to find Memory DIMM part number

There are a lot of different Proliant models. First identify the exact model using either of these commands:

hpasmcli -s 'show server'
or
dmidecode | grep -i 'Product Name'

Then go to:

http://www.hp.com/go/quickspecs

and find your server model under either "Worldwide" -> "HP ProLiant Servers" or "Worldwide" -> "Retired Products" -> "ProLiant Servers", if it's an older model.

You'll find the applicable memory kit part numbers in the "Memory" section of the QuickSpecs document for your server.

If you want just a single DIMM instead of a kit, you can type the memory kit part number to the quick search field

http://partsurfer.hp.com

and you should get the part number which you can use to order an individual DIMM.

(Reading the part number sticker on the failed DIMM would work too...)

Re: How to find Memory DIMM part number

Hi Raj,

You May use the # dmidecode --type 6 to get the memory details. check this article for more details

http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/querying-dumping-bios-from-linux-command-prompt.html

HP Spare part no of the failed memory module, You may or may not get from the output but you should be able to get the memory specs and using that you should be able to find the option part no from the server quickspecs or Call HP Support with the memory specification and they should be able to order the part or help you with the spare part.

thanks,
Aftab

I got memory specification , while checking the for the same specification memory in Partsurfer i could see multiple part number with same specification .. Is there any way to get the Memory Part numner from the system.

Steve, Hope it is clear now :-)

Perhaps more than one part would work. If
you revealed where you were looking when you
could see these things, then perhaps the rest
of us could look, too.

Open the system box and look at the parts?

That's probably the most reliable method.

> Steve, Hope it is clear now :-)

Even a little information beats none at all,
but quick visit to crucial.com suggests that
we still don't know the kind/size/number of
memory modules you have in this system. Nor
can a non-psychic like me tell what you could
use, because that seems to depend on the
system clock speed.

If you were trying to answer this question
instead of asking it, what sort of
information do you think that you might find
useful? (And what have you provided?)

Re: How to find Memory DIMM part number

How ever in HPUX we can find the memory details from CSTM

Open the system and find the part numnber may be the solution in this case

Thank you all
