Memory upgrade SUN T5120 server problem

Hello Experts,

I have a problem to install new memory on my Sun T5120 Sparc server. My previous memory install is 2GB x 8 = 16GB. The new one is 4GB x 8 = 32GB. After changing in Solaris can see only 16GB total memory (command:prtconf|grep MEM)

There is any way to make my server see all memory. Do I need to reset something like memory configuration in iLOM/ALOM?

Thank you.

What is the source of this memory?
Part numbers do not include lv? Lv noted in part number represent a 1.5v modules that are not supported in this model.

Hi

Now I can separate first pass are all good memory and server can boot OS normally.
the second pass, Server cannot boot, in ALOM when I command "poweron" memory fault message appeared immediately and last forever.

How should I do to test or check to separated the problem memory? There must be at least 1 memory which faults. If I I cannot test, it is possible to claim all 4 suspecious RAM?

Thank you.
