that should be plenty, but the real question is what else do you have running on the server? as exchange is pretty cpu intensive, it will use a lot of ram but will release it when it is needed. What error messages are you getting on the server?

the only other thing is groupshield from network associates. the cpu seems to be 97% busy all the time, with a process called ( i think) framework.net (i'm not there at the moment).

that process is to do with antivirus updating. I would update the version of groupshield you have to sp1 and that should fix this problem

FrameWorkServic is the process, just have to ask... have you got viurs scan on the same machine? if so this could cause problems if not excluding certain folders...

take a look at this ms doc http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=823166

That is the one.

groupshield is meant to run on the exchange server.

and it is service pack one.

yeah groupshield is meant to run on the exchange server but the exclusions should be put in virus scan if it is also installed on the machine. Which I believe by that service occuring it is installed.
