Can i do "memory upgrade" VxRail G-Series node.

I have 2 sites & both has same hardware "VxRail G-Series nodes which are QuantaPlex T41S-2U".

1st Site has 16x16GB DIMMs which are not sufficient to reach current traffic.

And 2nd site which is not active 16x32GB DIMMs.

I need suggestion if  it will be easy memory swap across , but I don’t know the process how to change & i got information from customer service that i can't do it into Quatna nodes. I assuming it will be simple process. I want to take out all those 16x32 GB from site 2 & it need to replace with 16x16GB current DIMMs & vice versa.

I am thinking process will be  put host in maintenance mode, shutdown host, swap DIMM & power on host..good to go or is there any standard complex process which we need to follow in order change or swap DIMM.

Unfortunately we do not allow upgrading the memory on the Quanta nodes.

Hello Gary,

Memory upgrade is not allowed or not supported?

Could you please explain why?

Thanks.

Upgrade options are detailed in our technical customer presentations as well as internal and partner how to sell materials.

That particular server model does not permit modifications to the processor or memory. See below image for specifics of what is an option.
