  • 1. character sets, sort order, collations
    Just trying to determine character set and sort order for a couple servers. I see that the output for sp_helpsort has changed, such that it used to be more helpful than it is now. I guess it changed at some point. On a SQL 7 system, I can easily get the charset and sortorder (below), as well as a listing of the characters in order. Character Set = 1, iso_1 ISO 8859-1 (Latin-1) - Western European 8-bit character set. Sort Order = 52, nocase_iso Case-insensitive dictionary sort order for use with several We stern-European languages including English, French, and German . Uses the ISO 8859-1 character set. Alternatively, EXEC sp_serverinfo 18: charset=iso_1 sort_order=nocase_iso charset_num=1 sort_order_num=52 But on some SQL 2000 systems, sp_helpsort returns: Latin1-General, case-insensitive, accent-sensitive, kanatype-insensitive, width-insensitive And EXEC sp_server_info 18: charset=iso_1 collation=Latin1_General_CI_AS How do I confirm that newer systems are 72 - nocase_1252 rather than 52 - nocase_iso when such descriptive output isn't provided any more? Dale.

Unable allocate min server memory size to greater than 1GB

Postby Sm9lIE5hbQ » Thu, 30 Mar 2006 15:58:01 GMT

I have installed a SQL Sever 2000 Standard Edition with Service Pack 4 on a 
Windows 2003 Standard Server with 2GB memory. But it does not allow me to set 
 the min server memory size that is greater than 1GB.  Do any one know what 
the problem is ? Thx.

do you get an error? can you set it via sp_configure? technically, your sql 
can use up to 2GB on win2k3 std. though, this would be unwise 'cuz you have 
to leave some for the OS.

Check the setting for 'max server memory'. 'min server memory' will not be 
allowed to exceed that. Also, with /3gb enabled, 1gb is reserved for the 
Windows kernel. Ensure that in your boot.ini that /3gb or /pae are NOT 
enabled as 2gb of RAM is too low to be using those options (both eat more 
free memory for the extra memory structures).

I represent Joe Nam to revise the question.
1. our sql server have set "use a fixed memory size" to 1800M, since the 
total memory of sql server exist 2G.
2. We don't know why the usage of physical memory only allocate below 1G of 
RAM.
Please kindly advise the problem of our sql server setting.
Thank you for all advanced experts.

1.unable to allocate 'min server memory'

I have SQL2000 Enterprise running on a Win2003 Enterprise machine, with 16GB
of ram....and no other applications. I start the database up and get an
error "unable to allocate 'min server memory'", which doesn't allow the DB
to startup unless I bring the setting down to around 1GB.. Any idea why this
would occur, if I have this much ram?

Thanks for your help
