Dumb question ahead, because I'm pretty new to the gig:
I've taken over administration of a small business network (2 locations, 2 win2003 Servers, 1 win2003 test server, 30 PC's, 40 users, router-based VPN, DSL internet). Both servers are basically little more than terminal services servers.
So, I'm having performance problems with server1 which is the busier server, more terminal sessions, etc. These are old machines and I tell users to log in only once, kick inactive sessions, etc.
We're using server2003 standard edition which limits at 4gb, and the page faults graph tells me we need more RAM. However, "my computer/properties" on server1 shows 3.49 GB but the same popup on server2 reports 4 GB. They're both Dell 800 series with P4 single-core hyperthread procs and they're identical except for the second RAID array and the backup system. The only significant difference is that server1 is the ActiveDirectory controller, server2, of course, is not.
I'm not sure what is allocating that 50MB. Is that normal in AD, or should I be looking for something aside from shared video memory, which just occurred to me?
