I am running  SQL server 2005 Enterprise on   a Windows 2003 Ent machine

I run the following and it works fine but then I check the running value and its still 0

sp_configure 'awe enabled', 1

How do I get it into the running value?

    Did you restarts the sql server after you configure the AWE

    sp_configure 'show advanced options', 1

    sp_configure 'awe enabled', 1

    didn't do it the first time but I rebooted again and then it  actually became the running value.  

    Strange but seems to work now.
