Dell Poweredge T710 memory config
I am wanting to upgrade the memory in my poweredge T710, it currently has 16Gb in so I bought a pair of 4Gb ram and intended to put them in pairs to bring it up to 24Gb. Problem is its configured to use the Advanced ECC mode (from the factory) and I can't get it to use the full 24Gb (it recognises it but doesn't use it).
I have the config which is a little confusing but I am wondering if you can only put them in 4's in the sockets to use Advanced ECC. Judging by what it says I have to use slots 2/5/8 and 3/6/9. The manual is from the Dell website but I am a little confused as slots 1/2/3 are white ones. I am pairing them up with each bank of ram A1/B1.
Has anyone got one of these servers that can shed some light on this for me please. I got a warning the last time I booted up telling me the banks weren't paired but they are now as I removed the new ram and am just running it with 16Gb again.
