- VMWare with Microsoft Server 2008 Enterprice edition 64-bit (4CPU and 32 GB RAM)
- SQL server 2008 R2 64-bit enterprise.
In the taskmanager the SQLServer only takes up about 12 GB of ram. However, the min memory setting is 20GB (max - 30GB)
From what I understand, the VMWare always tries to take back memory from the SQL server. Does the Min Memory setting limit the amount of memory it takes back ?
Is there any other Cap on the max memory usage that i miss ?
