32Gig limit for WIndows Server 2008 R2
Christopher Brooks, 12 Jan 2011
Last updated: 23 Feb 2011

Joule was ordered with 64 gig of memory, but can only use 32 gig.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa366778%28v=vs.85%29.aspx#physical_memory_limits_windows_server_2008_r2 has the memory limits

The System control panel of this machine says:

Installed memory (RAM) 64.0GB (32.0 GB usable).

We've had the machine longer than 30 days, so returning the memory is probably not possible. Looking at the HP higher education website, the memory is $1820.

The HP Website also has Windows Server 2008 Enterprise for $2788

SHI has Windows Server 2008 Enterprise for $253.50.

See the Microsoft Server 2008 Enterprise PO
