Hi

one of our PE2950's is saying it can hold 64Gb RAM while all the others
say they only support 32GB of RAM.

Lets call a regular 32GB max 2950 server_32 and the 64GB max server
server_64

root at server_32 # omreport chassis info
Chassis Information

Index                                    : 0
Chassis Name                             : Main System Chassis
Host Name                                : server_32
BMC Version                              : 2.05
DRAC 5 Version                           : 1.33
Chassis Model                            : PowerEdge 2950
Chassis Lock                             : Present
Chassis Service Tag                      : 
Chassis Asset Tag                        :
Flash chassis identify LED state         : Off
Flash chassis identify LED timeout value : 300

root at server_64 # # omreport chassis info
Chassis Information

Index                                    : 0
Chassis Name                             : Main System Chassis
Host Name                                : server_64
BMC Version                              : 2.05
DRAC 5 Version                           : 1.33
Chassis Model                            : PowerEdge 2950
Chassis Lock                             : Present
Chassis Service Tag                      : 
Chassis Asset Tag                        :
Flash chassis identify LED state         : Off
Flash chassis identify LED timeout value : 300

Both look identical from above.

However here's the abbreviated output of omreport chassis memory

root at server_32 # omreport chassis info
Total of Memory Array(s)
Attributes : Total Installed Capacity
Value      : 16384  MB

Attributes : Total Installed Capacity Available to the OS
Value      : 16236  MB

Attributes : Total Maximum Capacity
Value      : 32768  MB

root at server_64 # 
Total of Memory Array(s)
Attributes : Total Installed Capacity
Value      : 8192  MB

Attributes : Total Installed Capacity Available to the OS
Value      : 8108  MB

Attributes : Total Maximum Capacity
Value      : 65280  MB

So server_64 is showing a max of 64GB, why is this ?

Many thanks,
Nick .
