How much Memory for Microsoft SBS 2003 with dual processors

chattiegirl asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I have a question about memory on a SBS 2003 server with dual processors.  I have a client replacing hardware with SBS 2003.  The sales rep is trying to sell them 8 GB memory for the server because he said that even though the O/S is 32 bit and technically only address 4 GB, each processor can use it's own 4 GB memory.  I wasn't in agreement, but admittedly, wasn't sure either, so I'm throwing it out there to all of the O/S experts who know more.  Thanks!
