ProLiant 7000

I have a pro 7000 with 4gb of memory durring the post it show this. when the O/S (win2k) comes up and i look at insight manager it only shows that there is 3.6gb of memory installed in the machine. I have updated all the firmware on the server reinstalled the 6.20a insight agents can any one tell me where the other .4gb is gone to ?

Re: ProLiant 7000

Did you say this is the pentium pro version of this server? Or is it the Xeon? Does this advisory appear similar:

The document says ML570 and DL580, but this issue appies to any machine which has pci hotplug. I'd also recommend viewing the info on pci hotplug reservations in this document:

Re: ProLiant 7000

It should. If you go into the system config utility and disable the pci hotplug reservation, you should be able to see all of then too. I don't recommend doing this though.
