Whether an RH5885 V2 8-socket server can be divided into two 4-socket servers
In principle, an RH5885 V2 8-socket server is not allowed to be divided into two 4-socket servers unless the customer requests it. If it is divided and a CPU error occurs on one server, the CPU error will also be reported on the other server. In this case, you need to use the BMC for 4-socket servers instead.

Whether two RH5885 V2 4-socket servers can be combined into one 8-socket server
Two RH5885 V2 4-socket servers cannot be combined into one 8-socket server. To upgrade a 4-socket server to an 8-socket server, you need to use the BMC for 8-socket servers and upgrade the BIOS version to a version for 8-socket servers.

Requirements for the DIMM models of a server
A server must use DIMMs of the same model and capacity.

Whether hardware configuration can be modified for servers
Server components that are in the compatibility list support hardware upgrade and configuration modification.

Whether one DIMM can be configured for two CPUs
One DIMM can be configured for two CPUs, but it is not recommended. Based on the DIMM installation sequence of servers, install the DIMM in the first slot. Then the DIMM can be shared by two CPUs.
