Installation order: independent memory mode with two processors

Memory module installation order for independent (non-mirroring) memory mode with two processors installed in the compute node.

The following table shows the DIMM population sequence for independent memory mode when two processors are installed.

Note: When adding one or more DIMMs during a memory upgrade, you might need to move other DIMMs that are already installed to new locations.
