Ok I'm at my wits end trying to resolve this problem of event id 9665 and Exchange 2003 Enterprise:
The memory settings for this server are not optimal for Exchange.

I've followed the KB 815372 to the letter and performed the following:
added /3GB and /USERVA=3030 to the Boot.ini (KBs 266096 and 810371)
shhold" reg key to 0x00040000 (kb 315407)
Modified the ESE buffer size to several different values, ending with the max 307200
Increased and decreased the Pagefile from default to various sizes up to 12G split on 2 drives
The specs on the server are high-end : Dual P4 3G Intels, 4G RAM, Windows 2003 Enterprise OS (all current Windows Updates except Server 2003 SP1), Exchange 2003 Enterprise SP1. This server is a member server and not a DC in the domain.
I've been beating my head against the wall for nearly 2 weeks now ... can anyone else offer any suggestions before I call this one into Microsoft? Do I *really* need to worry about this message? One of the first options in the KB article instructs how to turn off the check, but I didn't put 4G of RAM into this box for it to sit and rot ... and I'd rather not ignore this for it to come back and bite me down the road.
