Upgrading RAM and HD space on ibm F50

By ashleyd ·
I am in the process of deciding whether to upgrade my IBM F50 server myself or spend too much money getting it done by a tech. The only issue I face is that I have heard that RISC6000 machines sometimes like to have ram placed in specific slots. Can anyone tell me if this is the case? If it isn't, and I can go ahead and install this myself. As well, any advice on hard drive upgrades will be extremely helpful, and rewarded.

Your on the right track, Memory modules must be installed in identical pairs. You could prob do this if you felt comfortable. The pairs are installed in the same Bank of slots.

From IBM:

Memory modules must be installed in identical pairs (size and speed). New memory modules must be installed in the first available pair of vacant connectors, starting at pair 1 (connectors J1 and J2) and progressing to pair 8 (connectors J15 and J16).

You can get a full detail on this from IBM, check out the link,

Its where I went for my upgrade information when I did it. I hope this helps, they also have the information your looking for about the drives.
