installing Ram modules on a server / configuring Virtual Memory
Posted on 2007-11-29
I just ordered additional Ram modules (2 x 1024MB) for our HP Proliant ml350 G4Server, because the harddisk is being accessed a lot (rattling noise) due to lack of ram i suppose. Usually performance indicates (using Everest) only 194MB free available ram or less.
I used kingston configurator to pinpoint to the exact Ram modules required. I have installed ram modules plenty, just never on a server before.
Is there anything different to be aware off, or is it just the same straight forward process (power off, open case, plug in, restart) ?
If you can give me advise on to configure the virtual memory settings would be also be great. (after the update the server file have 4096MB Ram installed)
The OS is Windows SBS 2003
