CPU Removal on HP BL460 G7

Hi,

 

to reduce licensing costs in some almost unloaded systems (cpu usage medium 5-10%), we

are considering to remove 1 CPU. The servers involved are some BL460G7 with 2 CPU, we

would like to remove 1 CPU and the RAM assigned to it.

 

Is it necessary to add some  additional components or can we just remove ram and cpu?

 

Thank you in advance,

best regards

You can just remove the RAM and CPU. The systems shipped as single CPU just have a plastic cover over the CPU socket to protect it

Also, If you don't know. You will lose the connection to Mexzzanine 2. You did not say your blade configuration, so may not apply.

This applies to Gen8.

Hope this helps!

Torsten,

 

You are correct, Sir!!

 

I've been spending too much time on our Gen 8 servers, here.
