Poweredge T410 not seeing all the RAM

I have a SBS 2008 64 bit installed on a Poweredge T410 with 8 gigs of RAM, the System Properties shows that I have 8 gigs of Ram but the resource monitor shows the mem usage is at 95 percent using only 4 gigs of RAM, anyone know why it wouldn't be using the other 4? The RAM and OS are factory Dell installed.

I am not sure if you can do it with this server yu have but some can be configured for memory morroring, something like that would halve your usable memory.

What version of Windows 2008 SBS is running? Premium or Standard? If is a Premium SBS on secondary server its support only 4 GB on RAM.

This server can be set up with mirroring and in many cases (single processor config, etc.), mirroring is the only option for some reason for 8GB.  Boot to BIOS and disable memory mirroring.

By "only option", I mean when you order it online it is the only available configuration.  You can disable it just fine thouhg.

If you have remote access to the server, you can confirm in OpenManage (in the Memory section).  (In the morning is fine - just saying :))
