Hi All

Environment:
Windows 2003 Enterprise Edition - 32bit
SQL 2005 Standard Edition - 32Bit

PAE has been enabled
Server has 16GB of ram installed and 8GB has been allocated to SQL Server

Using task manager and sys.dm_os_sys_info - SQL is only using +-1.6GB

From what I understand, AWE needs to be enabled now?

Once AWE is enabled, should I see the amounts in task manager and sys.dm_os_sys_info increase to 8GB?

Am I on the right track here?

Thanks

Have you given the ‘Lock pages in memory’ right to the account used by the SQL Server instance?

Also the task manager is not a right place to look for how much memory SQL server is using.

Run DBCC MEMORYSTATUS to see the actual values.

Yes I have

Which memory status am I looking for under DBCC memorystatus?

Thanks

If I had a Windows 2003 Standard edition server, regardless of whether I had more than 4GB of ram in the server, it won't see it.
