I just bought some memory to upgrade my system ( 2 kits)

The 8 sims I got are *supposed* to be 64mb each, accordind to the vendor.

Specification
RAM type FPM DIMM
Form factor 5 Volts, Proprietary Design
Storage capacity 256 MB (4 x 64MB )
Technology FPM DIMM
Access time 60ns
Slot(s) required 4
Data integrity check Buffered with Parity, ECC
Performance 100% Compatibility Guaranteed
Warranty/Service / Support Lifetime warranty


But mounted on my system , it seems to be just 32 each
sh memory says:

Physical Memory Usage (pages): Total Free In Use Modified
Main Memory (256.00MB ) 32768 17626 13987 1155

IF I try to install only the sims on one bank ( either A or B ) filling all 4 slots, I get only 128 mb smiley


Am I doing something wrong ( I just "plugged" the memories into the banks and rebooted ) or the vendor is wrong?


Thanks for your help

thanks Stephen for your reply.
Yes, I already run the AUTOGEN , but still the same amount smiley

The srm console (version 7.2-2) shows two banks of 128 mb each.
And if I use just one full bank (filling the 4 "places" ) the memory is 128.

the arc console is 4.58 and shows 256 mb of memory as well


The vendor said something about the bios to be updated...
I have bios emulation 1.15a
may he be right or is just kidding me? cos he sent me the link to the same *firmware* version I already have.....

HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.

lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
