This section describes how to service memory modules (DIMMs). DIMMs are customer-replaceable units (CRUs) that require you to power off the server. For more information about CRUs, see Illustrated Parts Breakdown and Customer-Replaceable Units.

The following topics and procedures provide information to assist you when replacing a DIMM or upgrading DIMMs:
