I'm looking at setting up a standby server. The Master is a fully equipped MacPro, so it's a bit expensive to buy an identical backup machine... This is what FMS15 Getting Started document specify:

 

To set up a standby server, you must have two server machines with identical configurations. The two server machines must match in the following ways:

...Physical memory size available on the machine (RAM size)

 

It's not possible to get 64Gb RAM for the MacMini... All other requirements can be met. I don't really understand the RAM requirements – will this actually mean it will not work with a fully equipped MacMini as a standby server to the MacPro?
