Add memory after OS is installed

Hi All
I have Itanium server RX2600 Win2003 enterprise server, 2 GB mem.
I want to add more 2GB mem.
Do I need to do somthing else more then just add the memory ?
Because I have done it and nothing changed

Re: Add memory after OS is installed

Check your boot.ini file, and make sure that you aren't using a limiting entry on your startup line.

i.e. /maxmem:2048

If you are, you can remove the /maxmem:???? entry totally (but NOT the entire line).
