we have 2 exchange servers running as backend and clustered, newly we start to receive error regarding low virtual memory, and after searching the internet, i read that Microsoft recommend to append /3GB /USERVA=3030 to the boot.ini and changing some entries in the registry.

is it risky to do this, and it really solve the error??

thanks & regards

Confirm you are running Exchange 2003 and not Exchange 2010 like the title suggests.

If running Exchange 2003, run ExBPA on there and configure your servers according to ExBPA recommendations.

If you are running Exchange 2003 on a NON DC server and have 4Gb RAM in the server, then I'd recommend implementing those settings because they allow Exchange to use 3 of the 4Gb in the server instead of only 2Gb.

ExBPA will mention it.
