Does my HP N54L supports 16 GB RAM ECC?

Check out the links in the Thread: http://homeservershow.com/forums/index.php?/topic/4603-16-gb-ram-for-n36l-vs-n40l/ 

 

Bottom line the answer is "maybe" -- With the N40L's & N36L's it really varried from machine to machine -- pretty much the same with the N54L but some felt that the N54L was a little more stable at 16G RAM than the others so it's really a case of YMMV.  you can check that thread for RAM that works as well as the links in the Front of the Thread: http://homeservershow.com/forums/index.php?/topic/3506-more-interesting-microserver-links/ 

 

Officially the older MicroServers (N36L, N40L, N54L) do not support more than 8GB RAM but some have been lucky to get it to work with 16GB and some have not.  YMMV

 

If you really need 16GB you need to look at another machine.

 

You don't need to flash the BIOS with the Mod BIOS to run with 16GB of RAM but you will need to flash the BIOS with the most current release from HPE if you want to run Windows 10, S2012, S2012R2 on the MicroServer.

 

CHECK OUT all of the thread's that are pinned to this Forum for useful information on the older MicroServer.

 

Thank you for your useful informations, I will give a check to the pinned threads.

What is HPE? Is necessary in order Windows 8 base > OS? Can I update if also without an already installed OS?

 

Okay cool, I'm not sure if Node.JS requires the use of ECC memory but it's good to have it anyway. Also just check that the processor supports DEP and either Intel VT-X or AMD-V for Hyper-v.

 

Also I think that ECC memories aren't required for Node.JS but I find ECC cheaper than no-ECC. I paid 2 x 8 GB DDR3 ECC € 43,80, no-ECC for about € 60/70.

Oooops, I didn't think abount CPU compability with Hyper-V! :o

HPE = Hewlett Packard Enterprise

 

I first ran Hyper-V on a N40L MicroServer with S2008R2 & 8GB RAM -- very good learning tool (BTW: That information is all in the links I mentioned earlier -- check the Forums posts dating in the 2012 period) EXAMPLE: http://homeservershow.com/forums/index.php?/topic/3579-server-2008-r2-enterprise-loaded-on-microserver/ 

 

I've also run Hyper-V on the N40L & N54L with S2012 & S2012R2 with 8GB & 16GB though the 16GB was "flaky" at times on the N40L -- Example Post: http://homeservershow.com/forums/index.php?/topic/3688-move-vms-to-a-new-host-running-hyper-v/?p=40637

Yeah make sure it supports that :)

Hello again,

 

I tried to install the new RAM modules but the server doesn't turn on.

No monitor and no HP blue light in the middle.

 

What can I do?

If you are trying to use the Dell part number from your first post, they will not work. Those are RDIMM modules. You need UDIMM modules for the N54l.

So the RAM that I bought is not compatible?

RDIMM = ECC? I read that N54L is compatible.

You need UDIMM ECC modules. What you have is RDIMM ECC. RDIMMs are registered modules. UDIMMs are unbuffered modules. RDIMMs do not work in the N54l.
