Hi Friends,

Is it right that:
For SQL Server 2008 Enterprise Edition, the max memory limit is Operating system maximum while for SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition its 2TB (OS max is for Datacenter Edition).
In the same way for SQL Server 2008 EE, the max CPU limit is Operating system maximum while for SQL Server 2008 R2 EE its 8 (OS max is for Datacenter Edition).
