Servicing the DIMMs

This section describes how to service memory modules (DIMMs). DIMMs are replaceable components that require you to power off the server for service. For more information about replaceable components, see Illustrated Parts Breakdown and Replaceable Components.

The Oracle Exadata X8-2 Database Server supports a fixed base configuration of twelve 32 GB quad-rank (LR) DDR4 DIMMs. You can upgrade system memory to twelve 64 GB DDR4 DIMMs.


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 Electrostatic Discharge Safety.


Caution  -  Ensure that all power is removed from the server before removing or installing DIMMs, or damage to the DIMMs might occur. You must disconnect all power cables from the system before performing these procedures.

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