I'm supporting a ASP.NET v2.0 app installed on a Windows 2003 SP3 Enterprise on a quad core 8G machine running on .NET 2.0 SP1.

1.before enabling the config, ran "tasklist /m mscorwks.dll"
Image Name PID Modules
w3wp.exe 7888 mscorwks.dll

2.add under section in web.config

3.ran IISRESET, rebooted server too

4.ran "tasklist /m mscorsvr.dll"
INFO: No tasks are running which match the specified criteria.

5.ran "tasklist /m mscorwks.dll"
Image Name PID Modules
w3wp.exe 6251 mscorwks.dll

It seems like gcServer is not taking effect. Are there any additional settings/ configurations necessary to get it working?
