Should work flawlessl after installing the additional CPU and memory; maybe 
you want to check the server vendor's support pages for BIOS upgrades, 
there may be newer versions. As you have to take the machine out of service 
anyways, this is a good time to check this, too.

(OTOH: Never touch an running system, so if it finds all the memory and CPU 
installed additionally and there's nothing noted in the BIOS changelog, you 
can ignore it.)

HTH,

Timo
