Memory options

The ST50 V2 supports Lenovo TruDDR4 memory. TruDDR4 memory uses the highest-quality components sourced from Tier 1 DRAM suppliers and only memory that meets strict requirements is selected. It is compatibility-tested and tuned to maximize performance and reliability.

TruDDR4 memory has a unique signature programmed into the DIMM, which enables ThinkSystem servers to verify whether the memory installed is qualified and supported. From a service and support standpoint, TruDDR4 memory automatically assumes the system's warranty, and service and support provided worldwide.

The processors have 2 memory channels and support 2 DIMMs per channel. The ST50 V2 supports 1, 2 or 4 DIMMs. 3 installed DIMMs is not supported. All DIMMs installed must be identical.

DIMMs installed in the ST50 V2 operate at a speed based on the processor installed, the number of DIMMs installed, and whether the DIMMs are single-rank or dual-rank:

  • When connected to a Xeon processor:
    • 1 or 2 DIMMs: 3200 MHz
    • 4 single-rank (1R) DIMMs: 3200 MHz
    • 4 dual-rank (2R) DIMMs: 2933 MHz
  • When connected to a Pentium processor:
    • 1 or 2 DIMMs (1 DPC): 2666 MHz
    • 4 single-rank (1R) DIMMs: 2666 MHz
    • 4 dual-rank (2R) DIMMs: 2400 MHz

The following table lists the memory options that are available for the ST50 V2 server.

32GB UDIMM support: Support for the 32GB 2R UDIMM is planned.

Table 13. Tatlow memory section
Part number Feature code Description Maximum

Systems management

ST50 V2 models with Intel Xeon E processors support Intel Active Management Technology (AMT) 15.0 which provides out-of-band, hardware-based advanced system control, monitoring, alerting, and remote presence functions.

ST50 V2 models with Pentium processors support Intel Standard Manageability (ISM), which is a subset of the AMT features.

Both AMT and ISM offer the following features:

  • Out-of-band management
  • System health and status monitoring
  • System event log and alerting
  • Hardware inventory
  • Boot device selection
  • Remote power control
  • Serial over LAN
  • IDE/USB Redirect for mounting remote media

In addition, AMT supports the following feature:

  • KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) redirection

Note: KVM redirection requires an Intel Xeon E processor with integrated graphics.

Health monitoring, event log, alerts, hardware inventory, boot device selection, and remote power control features are accessible out-of-band with a web browser. Serial over LAN, IDE/USB Redirect, and KVM redirection features require third-party tools that are not supplied or supported by Lenovo.

Both AMT and ISM operate independently of the server and remain operational even if the server is powered off. Out-of-band management is performed through the standard Gigabit Ethernet port, which is a shared port for data and management.

AMT and ISM support the following management protocols:

  • DASH 1.1
  • WS-MAN
  • SNMP Platform Event Traps (PET)

Note: The ST50 V2 server does not have an XClarity Controller (XCC) management processor

For more information about Intel AMT, see the the Intel AMT Implementation and Reference Guide.
