Event 9665: Update to recommended memory settings for running Exchange
Server 2003 SP1 on Windows Server 2003.
When you are running Exchange 2003 SP1 on Windows Server 2003 with more than
1 GB of RAM, it is recommended that you set the SystemPages registry key to
zero. This recommendation contrasts with the recommendation for Windows 2000
Server, which is to set SystemPages to a value between 24000 and 31000.
The recommended memory settings for Exchange 2003 SP1 on Windows Server 2003
with more than 1 GB of RAM are as follows:
If you host mailboxes or public folders on a server with more than 1 GB of
RAM, make sure that the boot.ini file contains the /3GB switch.
When you use the /3GB switch, add the /userva switch to the boot.ini file
and set the switch to a value between 2970 and 3030.
When you use the /3GB switch, set the hexadecimal value of the following
registry key to 0x00040000:
Set the decimal value of the following registry key to zero:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\SystemPages
If you set SystemPages to the Windows 2000 Server recommended value of
between 24000 and 31000, an Event 9665 will appear in the event log.
