We are running VMware ESX 3i 3.5.0 158869 update 4 on Blade 460c's.
We'll have different application servers running on these boxes, some with more memory requirements than others. According to MS, the memory limits are;
Windows 2003 Standard x32: 4GB
Windows 2003 Enterprise x32: 64 GB
Windows 2003 Standard x64: 32 GB
Windows 2003 Enterprise x64: 1TB
However, it states that limits over 4GB for 32 bit Windows assume PAE is enabled.
Is PAE enabled on VMware guests? I'm not even too sure what it is? :)....so basically, my question is do these limits apply to virtual servers, or are they for physical boxes only?
