Hi all,

I've been reading up on the use of the /3gb switch with Exchange 2003.

My system has 2bg physical memory installed, but al lthe information I can relate to is referenced to machines with 3gb memory.

Basically, do I need to set this switch in the boot.ini, and if so, do I need to also add the /USERVA=xxxx tag as well.

If I do need the /USERVA=xxxx what number to I put in? (i.e. /USERVA=3030)

Thanks for any adivce / explanations :)

The switch should be used on any machine that has more than 1gb of RAM and is NOT a domain controller.
If you run the Exchange best practises tool from Microsoft on the machine it will tell you what is and is not required.
