Server is running Server 2008 R2 Enterprise x64 and only using 32 of 48 gb of installed memory. What gives? Obviously if I was running Standard edition my problem would be pretty clear, but I'm not.

Answer Summary:
I actually figured this out myself. Turns out my Dell Poweredge was configured wrong in the BIOS. I went in and changed the Memory Operating Mode to Optimizer Mode and the Node Interleaving to Enabled. It was just an inkling I had. I now have full use of all 48 GB.

This article is for Windows 7, but ignore the first portion where 3.5 out of 4 GB is expected behavior for W7, and look in the Things to Try section:



I have also noticed several people in forums stating that they did a DSIM upgrade from standard to enterprise, and something similar happened when they relicensed using a different key after the upgrade.  They recommend trying "SLMGR / REARM" and relicensing.
