    hi all,

    just a quick question, we added an additional 8gb RAM in our SUN server earlier, it is a SUN fire T2000, which has 8x 1gb RAM in it currently, and we bought 2x 4gb RAM, added them in, but it didnt recognise them - after having a look online it seems you need to add them in "banks of 8", meaning I will have to send this RAM back and swap it for 8x 1gb or 8x2gb if I wanted to increase the RAM and it actually work - just wondered if anyone out there works with SUN stuff and can confirm / deny this is true? I read in one place it needs a MINIMUM of 8 sticks of RAM, so perhaps we just configured them wrong... went into a bit blind..
