If I'm reading the specifications sheet right, the maximum configuration is 32
processors with 256G of RAM. We'll need to see test results with the maximum
number of CPUs. The requirements for memory testing are as follows, copied from
section 5.3 of the Hardware Certification Policies document:
The greater of either 1/4 the maximum amount of RAM supported by Red Hat
Enterprise Linux for the given architecture or the maximum amount of RAM sold in
systems sold to date. For example, an x86 system that supports up to 32GB of RAM
would need to have at least 16GB of RAM to be tested for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 4 (maximum supported RAM for x86 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux is 64GB; 1/4
of 64GB is 16GB) assuming that no systems of that model have been sold with more
than 16GB to date. If this exception is used, Red Hat will also require an
official statement certifying that maximal memory testing under Red Hat
Enterprise Linux was part of the product qualification cycle at the hardware
vendor. Moreover, the vendor must support the maximum amount of RAM listed in
the specification irrespective of the test results submitted.
On RHEL 3, the maximum amount of memory we support on Itanium is 128G.
I also do not see any information in the specifications page regarding video,
USB, optical drives, hard drives, network cards, etc. What information are
customers given if they ask Unisys about those components?
Also, do we currently have one of the systems, either at our Westford office or
As we discussed, this system is already covered by
https://hardware.redhat.com/hwcert/show.cgi?id=148276, so we can close this one
According comment #3, dumpest it.
