  • 1. Mode 80, 90, 100
    Hi. For a SQL 2008 Server, if the user databases are at mode 90, does the master database needs to be at mode 90 also or can it be at mode 100? I had been told in the past that if we had mode 80 databases, the master had to be mode 80 also. Don't know if this is true or not. Thanks for your help...
  • 2. Error: A significant part of sql server process memory has been paged out.
    We are running SQL 2005 sp3 Ent edition (64 bit) on Window Server 2003 R2 Sp1 with 32GB of memory. A new nt account was created to install SQL and that account is admin on the box. That account has been added for Lock pages in memory setting. After rebooting we see this message in the SQL log "A significant part of sql server process memory has been paged out. This may result in a performance degradation." as oppose to "Using locked pages for buffer pool." which we would expect to see. If any large job runs Any thoughs on what may be missing or why the Lock pages in memory setting is not taking. Any help is appreciated. thanks, Meenal
  • 3. Error: A significant part of sql server process memory has been paged out.
    What does boot.ini look like? What about sp_configure 'max server memory'? Is the instance set to use AWE? What else is installed on the machine aside from SQL Server?

  • 4. Mirror backup on SQL Server 2005
    I have SQL Server 2005 enterprise and need to do a mirrored backup. I run the following script: backup database [database name] to disk = '[disk location]' mirror to disk = '[mirror location]' with format When I run it I get the following error: Msg 3201, Level 16, State 1, Line 1 Cannot open backup device '[mirror location]'. Operating system error 1385(Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer.). Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 1 BACKUP DATABASE is terminating abnormally. I am trying to get this running, but I need to know what account backups run on so I can grant access to the remote server.

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

would occur, if I have this much ram?

Thanks for your help
