Dell Server Memory configuration

The new dell servers allow for “memory operation mode”  Memory can now be set to act as a spare. In my case I noticed that I had 24 gigs of memory installed and 16 usable. To fix this issue just go to Dell Open manage server administrator. Click on memory and choose the memory mode you want to use. I chose “optimizer” instead of  “spare”. Now my server shows 24 usable gigs. 🙂
