    3. To realize the performance memory capabilities listed in this document, HP SmartMemory is required. Click here to see QuickSpecs for technical specifications and additional information . HP memory from previous generation servers are not fully compatible with Smart Memory features in Gen8 Servers.

    4. Supports FCoE, Flex-10, TCP/IP offload engine, hardware-based accelerated iSCSI, iSCSI boot, and autosensing 10Gb/1Gb Ethernet. Each port is autosensing 1Gb/10Gb, and can interoperate with 1Gb HP BladeSystem c-Class interconnect components. Both ports will operate at the same speed. FlexFabric capabilities require the use of an HP Virtual Connect FlexFabric module. Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) is supported with the HP 10GbE Pass-Thru Module, HP 6120XG Blade Switch with the CEE license installed, HP Cisco B22HP Fabric Extender and HP Cisco B22HP Fabric Extender with 16 FET for BladeSystem c-Class.

    5. FlexibleLOMs are not compatible with prior generation c-Class server blades.

    6. This expansion slot supports dual-port mezzanine cards: one port is routed to interconnect module bay 3 and the other to bay 4.

    7. This expansion slot supports dual-port and quad-port mezzanine cards. For dual-port cards, one port is routed to interconnect module bay 5 and the other to bay 6. For quad-port cards, one port is routed to interconnect module bay 5, one to bay 6, one to bay 7, and one to bay 8. A second processor must be installed (in processor slot 2) to have access to the second expansion slot (expansion slot 2).

    8. The ProLiant BL420c Gen8 server includes the new HP hot plug small form factor (SFF) SmartDrive carrier for enhanced management and reduced maintenance errors. HP drives from previous generation servers are not compatible with the ProLiant BL420c Gen8 drive bays.

    9. The above options are for integrated hypervisor virtualization environments needing a low cost boot solution with the highest performance and reliability.

    10. Upgradeable firmware with recovery ROM. The HP Smart Array P220i supports two (2) small form factor (SFF) hot plug drive bays.

    11. HP Dynamic Smart Array B320i supports two (2) small form factor (SFF) hot plug drive bays. The server supports up to a combined total of two (2) FBWC supercap options.
