comment Missing memory (BIOS detects 8 x 2GBs but says only 12 GBs installable)
The old configuration was using slots 1-4 only - how would I confirm quad channel memory access in this configuration?

Switched 7 & 8 - no change. Then switched 6->7 7->8 8->6 - also no change. The thing is even in the BIOS I'm told there are only 12 GB of installed of memory, despite 8 2GB DIMMs being listed (all of which are identical).

This is such an excellent answer - thank you. I'll try switching the sticks around tomorrow and see if that makes a difference. As far as I can tell all the accessible memory is working fine (I've put literally all 12 GBs to use in some high-memory application code).

comment Progressive upgrade of a RAID array
@MaxMackie You seen, I was thinking about that, but would that work with hardware RAID? The disk still has a single point of access to the RAID controller, but the disk controller would have to provide access to the four partitions as if they were four separate drives - can it do that? Would that not also reduce the SATA speed to 0.75 Gb/s per partition or worse, actually?

comment Unable to write as root (but can as user)
I can't confirm this, because if I unmounted everything I'll kill a massive number of jobs being run on our cluster, but I'm sure you're right. Even when I log out, other directories inside the parent directory stay mounted, so I bet that's the issue. Thanks.

Hmmm - do I need to do anything else other than update the /etc/export file? I've done that, logged out and logged back in (which autodismounts/automounts) the client, and still nothing. However, I'm sure this is the right track - thanks.
