I am having an issue with Server 2008 x64.  When I try to set the Virtual memory settings it looks like it takes the information but then after you close out and go back in the settings are reset back to no page file.  I have tried to manually set it to a certain level and then also had the system manage it but it always resets right after you close out of those properties.  I woudl like to have the paging file on the B drive.  This happens on 2 servers, both of which are Exchange 2007.  Any help would be greatly appriciated!  Thanks!

Both Server Info:
Server 2008 x64 Enterprise SP2
Exchange 2007 SP2 (CCR)
Quad-Core AMD Opteron Processor 8360 SE 2.50 GHz
32.0 GB Physical Memory
Local C: 22.9 GB free of 67.7GB
Local B:  128 GB free of 135 GB

I have always believed that A and B are reserved letters that can only be used with floppy devices.  I wonder if that is your problem?  

Try changing the drive letter and repeat the exercise.

Is there a registry key that might be able to reset this option so that way it can be put on Drive B?  Our issue is we have everything parittioned out and we have  most of the drive letters taken up with SAN drives for Exchange Database separation.

Check the folder permissions and ensure that the "SYSTEM" account has Full Control in the root of any drive you wish to create a pagefile.

If you are running out of drive letters, you should consider using drive mount points, which allows you to access several different volumes from the same drive letter.
