I have a Small Business Server 2008 standard which is heavely loaded for some strange reason.
I need to determine if the installed SQL is the "real deal" or just the Express edition.

I found the documents located on microsoft.com useless so I hope you can point it out :-)

I was told that the SQL Express edition could only utilize up to 1 GB of ram.
I see that my server shows a single task in task manager called SQLSERVR.EXE using 3,7 gigs of ram which indicates a full version but Im not sure??
