DESCRIPTION

On an HP ProLiant G6, G7 or Gen8 server, the Advanced Memory Protection (AMP) LEDs will only be illuminated when AMP is being used. AMP indicates the Online Spare Memory or Memory Mirroring, not the Advanced ECC. The Advanced ECC is the "default" condition and is indicated by the AMP LEDs being disabled and not in use.

DETAILS

The LEDs for the AMP are functioning as designed for the HP ProLiant G6, G7 or Gen8 servers.

The Systems Insight Display LEDs will indicate the AMP status for Online Spare Memory or Memory Mirroring. These lights are only for Online Spare and Mirroring. When the LEDs are off, all AMP modes are disabled. For example, the LED indicators on the HP ProLiant server's side panels will display the following AMP status:

  • Solid green: AMP mode enabled
  • Solid amber: Failover status
  • Flashing amber: Invalid configuration

The Advanced ECC mode is the default option for these servers. This Advanced ECC mode provides up to 4-bit error correction and enhanced performance over Lockstep mode. The Advanced Memory Protection options are configured in HP ROM-Based Setup Utility (RBSU). If a requested AMP mode is not supported by the installed DIMM configuration, the server boots in the Advanced ECC mode. The Advanced ECC provides failure protection, not failover capability.
