Hi Guys and Girls,

Is there anyone who has run into this problem? More importantly do you
have a fix?

We have two W2K Exchange 2K that seem to fill their virtual memory over
a period of 2-3 weeks and only clears after a reboot. That is it uses
disk space on the system drive until the reboot is initiated.

We are running Symantec virus scanning on both boxes. Both boxes have
veritas 9.0 installed for backup to the internal tape drives. The
hardware is HP ML370 raid5 and 512MB of RAM. We are running service pack
4 on the W2K OS and service pack 3 on the Exchange.

Any clues or wisdom as to the cause of this would be greatly
