  • Commserv with PAE
    Posted: 07-14-2010, 2:20 PM

    We have a Commserv running 32bit Win2003.

    The Commserv machine has 8GB of RAM, which obviously cannot be used completely.

    I'd like to boot the machine with /PAE to be able to use the entire 8GB (4GB per process ofcourse, I know about the limitations and everything).

     

    Is anyone running a Commserv with PAE enabled? Is this configuration supported?


    If it jams, force it.
    If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway.

    Hello Dannie,  The /PAE switch is supported.  We have other customers running with this.

    Also for everyone's interest, MS kb on this feature  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/291988 .   From past incidents we have seen you want to be careful about having both /3GB and /PAE enabled at the same time. 

    I should also point out that Microsoft has reported an issue with corrupted data when PAE is enabled on a Win2k3 based system when SQL Server is in use which they have a hotfix for.  Please review all before implementing.

    Thanks for the confirmation.

    I already spoke with my DBA and he knew there was something about MSSQL & PAE, which is why we haven't tried to enable the switch already.

    Thanks for finding that KB article :)
