ML350 G6 Memory Configuration

We just installed a new ML350 G6. Ordered it with 12GB RAM. Installed Server 2003 (64bit) as a downgrade option. On both the BIOS screen and within Server 2003 the server reports about 6GB of RAM. From the information on the BIOS during the POST it confirms that 6GB is configured for use and that 6GB is in some kind of "reserved" status. What gives? How do I get the full 12GB available to the Windows Server 2003 OS? Or is it not advisable to do so?

Re: ML350 G6 Memory Configuration

You are probably running in memory mirroring mode. I think this is a bios setting. Could also be somthing that has to do with the way the memory banks are populated.

Re: ML350 G6 Memory Configuration

Thanks for the replies and explanations. JimmyLOU, you said "...Memory Mirroring should be enabled...". Does this mean that there is some reliability-related reason to leave it that way (and thereby cut our available RAM in half) or is it safe to turn off Memory Mirroring and get full use of the RAM?
