Hi,

We have installed 6Gb into a server but 2003 is only seeing 4gb. How
do I go about windows seeing the full 6Gb. It is a HP server.

Thanks in advance.
Hi Brychan



Are you running Standard or Enterprise?



I think Standard only supports upto 4GB

Hi Gary,

It is enterprise, so I am a bit perplexed.

Windows 2003 Server Standard Version has a limit of 4gb. As far as
I'm aware the only way to increase this limit, in Windows, is buy the
Enterprise version of 2003 which, I think, goes up to 12gb.

Martin Horton
Group IT Manager
PRD Holdings Ltd.
If this is an HP version of a Compaq server, just installing the
additional memory isn't enough...You also need to go into the BIOS
setup (if you see a blinking rectangle in the upper right when you
first boot the server, hit F10 to get there) and use the utilities
found there to discover the hardware changes. Once the server
recognizes the additional memory at the BIOS level, Windows will
follow just fine....except for the pagefile setting. You should also
delete and recreate the pagefile setting to match the memory
complement, for the most efficient processing.

Hope that helps.......Gary

Correct.....Microsoft stopped offering upgrades to anything except the
workstation version of Windows. For Server, you would need to either
install Enterprise on top of what you have, or install R2, which uses
more memory.

Almost forgot....If you're running server 2003 Std, then it won't see
past 4GB, unfortunately. You need Enterprise or R2 to see the additional.

You need enterprise of Windows Server 2003 (32 Bit) to access any more
than the Maximum 4GB from Windows.



The hardware may have a larger Memory limit, may successfully detect it,
but windows 2003 Standard enforces the 4GB



R2 comes in both versions. (Standard and Enterprise), but has no effect
on Memory limits in the Standard version (Still 4GB)



In the Enterprise Edition (32 Bit) has a 32GB Limit, R2 increases this
edition to 64GB



The 4GB of RAM accessed by Windows 2003 Standard inc R2 is split into
two halves of 2GB (Kernel and User Mode)



It is possible to change this to a 1GB to 3GB ratio, meaning
applications can utilize 3GB's of the 4GB



This is done by adding the "/3GB" to the boot.ini file of Windows in the
root of the C drive, but please bear in mind the applications you are
running must support this.





Regards



Gary Parfrey

Anyone using Windows 2003 Server x64 for Vantage Server or Windows XP Professional x64 on the client? How do they compare on performance to non-x64 versions?
