Use:

EXEC sp_configure 'show advanced options', '1'
RECONFIGURE WITH OVERRIDE

EXEC sp_configure 'min server memory', '0'

EXEC sp_configure 'max server memory', '3000'
RECONFIGURE WITH OVERRIDE

EXEC sp_configure 'show advanced options', '0'
RECONFIGURE WITH OVERRIDE

You've left a lot of important information out.

32 bit? 64 bit?
What OS
What edition of SQL 2005?
How much memory does the server have?

you may or may not need to configure the /3GB switch in the boot.ini (i assume you meant this file and not the config.sys) and also enable AWE

In addition to running the below queries:
Do we also need to configure the /3GB switch in the boot.ini file?
When do we enable AWE? before running these queries?

EXEC sp_configure 'show advanced options', '1'
RECONFIGURE WITH OVERRIDE

EXEC sp_configure 'min server memory', '0'

EXEC sp_configure 'max server memory', '3000'
RECONFIGURE WITH OVERRIDE

EXEC sp_configure 'show advanced options', '0'
RECONFIGURE WITH OVERRIDE

Thanks!

No idea. You haven't given us enough information. Please answer the questions I asked.

Hello !
I am kind of looking for the same answers.
Do I have to enable AWE and switch \3GB on 64 BIT SERVER 8GB RAM , Windows 2003 Standard /SQL 2005 Standard?
So far I configured max memory to 6GB on server
with minimum 1 GB.
Thank you.

No. 3gb and AWE are for 32 bit only.

THANK YOU.
I guess this is not going to be problem to reverse it if I already enabled AWE in sp_configure
