Hi,

Using Server 2008 R2

Is there a way to make priority of a program/process higher than other. So more resources are allocated to it?

Thanks

Is the normal Task Manager option for setting the process priority working? Any user process can be changed via this. Services are harder to change, but can be done so manually via Process Explorer (www.sysinternals.com). This worked for Server 2003 but I have not tested it on Server 2008.

When you open task manager, you should be able to right click >> Set Priority. This works on most processes. And yes, geowrian, Process Explorer is compatible with Server 2008.
