SQL Server Agent reports only 2GB RAM detected...Server has 4GB Installed

Good Afternoon,

Using MSSQL 2000 SP4.

Well, the title pretty much says it all.

In the SQLAGENT.OUT report, the line reads:

2006-07-06 13:59:57 - ? [310] 4 processor(s) and 2048 MB RAM detected

I have 4GB of RAM installed in the server though.  Within Properties, on the Memory tab of the SQL server, it is indicated there are 4095 MB...

Any ideas?

I'd like to make all 4GB available to any process...

2. Windows 32 bit can ONLY assign a max. of 2GB of RAM to a given process

Workarounds:

1. Upgrade to SQL 2005 or SQL 2000 Enterprise
2. USE /3GB /4GB /PAE (depending on which OS/hardware you have)  while starting windows...

then you can use 2GB max... standard 2005 allows for 4GB on 32-bit windows
