Memory, Hardware, and Operating System Compatibility for Intel® Server Board S5000VCL





The Tested Hardware and Operating System List based on the Intel® Server Configurator Tool for the Intel® Server Board S5000VCL Family includes add-in adapters, peripherals, and hard drives.

The Intel® Server Board S5000VCL was designed to support Fully Buffered Dual In-line (FBD) Registered DDR2-667 FBDIMM memory ECC Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory (SDRAM). Other industry naming conventions for DDR2-667 include PC2-5300.

  Type of testing Support Commitment
P1 Compatibility and Stress – System stress with special test software is used to maximize the stress of the CPU, memory, and IO buses of the platform. The test areas within compatibility validation are verification of basic functionality, OS installation and boot. Intel will provide support for customer issues with these operating systems involving installation and/or functionality of the server board with or without the adapters and peripherals as having been tested under the particular operating system.
P2 Basic Testing – OS installation, boot, and functional validation Intel will provide and test operating system drivers for each of the server board’s integrated controllers, provided that the controller vendor has a driver available upon request. Vendors will not be required by Intel to develop drivers for operating systems that they do not already support. This may limit the functionality of certain server board integrated controllers.

Intel will NOT provide support for issues related to use of any add-in adapters or peripherals installed in the server system when an operating system that received only basic installation testing is in use.
