The Sun Server X4-2 supports a variety of DDR3 DIMM configurations that can include quad-rank (QR), dual-rank (DR), and single-rank (SR) DDR3 DIMMs.
Note - While single-rank DIMMs can be installed in the Sun Server X4-2, Oracle does not offer any single-rank DIMMs for purchase, either as factory-installed options or as separately orderable options.
Caution - These procedures require that you handle components that are sensitive to electrostatic discharge. This sensitivity can cause the components to fail. To avoid damage, ensure that you follow antistatic practices as described in Take Antistatic Measures.
Caution - Ensure that all power is removed from the server before removing or installing DDR3 DIMMs, or damage to the DDR3 DIMMs might occur. You must disconnect all power cables from the system before performing these procedures.
