 I have an Exchange 2003 Standard Edition running on Windows 2003 Server
Standard Edition with 2GB of RAM.

I also do have the /3GB and USERVA=3030 switches in the boot.ini


Exchange server is installed to my F:\.


I currently have my swap file of min/max: 4096MB set to my X:\ which I
created for the purpose, instead of on my C:\

In the place were you can set the size of the swap file, it says it
recommends: 3070 but I have it currently at 4096

Because I am trying to fix the problem I will describe below, but
apparently adding more virtual memory did not indeed fix the problem.


When I go to the Windows Task Manager, on the Performance Tab, it shows
PF Usage is 5.81GB.


I have roughly only 50users (mailboxes) and my priv1.edb is 4GB and the
priv1.stm is 2.6GB.


Can anyone offer me advice as to why I keep getting this error and how
do I fix it?
