        Is your Store.exe in task manager eating all the ram? If so, I
had that problem as well until I installed the post sp3 rollup for
exchange to it. It's normal for the Information to take all available
memory, but it's supposed to give some back if needed, that wasn't
happening well, prior to this.
        I hope you don't have a whole lot of mail users yet though; you
might want to examine how your system is set up. Single partition is
begging for trouble, 512 MB Ram may not be enough for Exchange to be
        There are load simulators available from Microsoft to allow you
to test your server's performance, giving you some help in guest-imating
how your server will perform with all your users.
        Good Luck......

Subject: [exchangelist] Virtual Memory Error!

hi all,

I am having exchange 2000 server with P-IV, 512 MB RAM and Single

My exchange server gives me error "your system is running low on virtual
memory. the system is adjusting the virtual memory size".

i observe the task manager, the Performance tab shows PF Usage very

This type of behaviour is happening all the time. when i restart the E2k
Machine. The PF Usage will be normal but as the days pass, the PF Usage
will go on increasing and one good day my E2k will stop services. i need
to restart the server again. This is quite irritating for me.

Any advice/solution ????
