We have 1 server Proliant ML570T04 with 16GB di ram and 11 SAS Disk 70 gb. The software installed is SQL Server 2005, 32-bit and the application is Navision. With < 15 clients, the response time is slow because the SQL Server utilizes only 4 GB of ram. Is it possible to utilize the remaining memory, and if so, how?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you have Windows 2003 Enterprise Edition installed then yes. If you have Windows 2003 Standard Edition installed you are limited to only 4 Gigs of RAM.
