I have a Small Business Server 2008 that had it's page file lowered from 4385 to 1024 (Supposedly an accidental change)

This System is a Dell T710 with 4 Gig of RAM and 500 Gg HD.
Exchange and Share Point are not currently being used on this system.

On reboot the system comes up slowly and all we get is a solid blue screen (no GUI).

Is there a way to change the page file back to 4385 which was recommended with out the GUI interface?

Thanks

Can I just enter this line at the CMD line to turn on automatic page file?

wmic computersystem where name="%computername%" set AutomaticManagedPagefile=True

Yes that should set it and then restart the server, go back into the command line and run the

wmic pagefile list /format:list to view the changes - your allocated base size should have changed
