A short while ago I set out to more properly distribute and balance the RAM I have available between my servers.

I originally had 24GB of unregistered RAM in the Dell R510, which I have running 24/7. In another —since sold— spare server I had 32GB of registered memory, which didn't really make a lot of sense. So I set out to swap them around, but ran into a few road blocks along the way that led me to also re-configure the RAM in my development server. In the end, I had three pretty decently configured servers, although my development server could benefit from two more 8GB sticks, but I think I did about as well as I could with the parts I had available.

The end result, as of the time of producing this video, is as followed:

"Kokkiri" Dell R510 "Dengdengi" Development Server "Mongmongi" Spare Server (sold)
6x 4GB DDR3-10600R 2Rx4 2x 8GB DDR3-10600R 2Rx4 6x DDR3-12800U 1Rx8
2x 4GB DDR3-10600R 1Rx4 4x 4GB DDR3-10600R 2Rx4
4x 4GB DDR3-10600R 2Rx8
Total 32GB RAM Total 48GB RAM Total 24GB RAM

It was good I (finally) went through and did this, and while nothing too exciting happens doing something like this, I do hope some of you might enjoy watching this little bit of homelab maintenance.
