comment Windows Server 2003 can't see Vista machine
Editing the HOSTS file did fix it... but I'm wondering if there's a better solution to do with fixing the DNS issue? Thanks!

If I manually edited the HOSTS file, would that fix it? :)

comment Windows Server 2003 can't see Vista machine
Aha! No, I cannot ping the Vista machine from the 2003 machine! (But I CAN do it from the other machines that can connect to the Vista machine.) How do I fix this? Do I need to install anything? Thanks so much!

comment Windows Server 2003 can't see Vista machine
It's not just a SQL thing because we have a shared folder setup on the Vista machine (x32 Ultimate, BTW), and it can't be accessed by the OS entering the network name (unlike with other machines). It's a real head scratcher :( Will give the SQLProv a shot, though. Thanks.

Thanks, all Firewalls are disabled (we're trying everything), and as I said, other machines can connect to the Vista machine no problem. Is it not likely to be an OS compatibility? :-/

comment Weird memory usage in Windows Server 2008 R2
This explains everything. Memory usage was "use all available" (ie. 2000TB) and with the pages being locked in RAM, then not everything had access to it when it was in use. Having now limited SQL Server RAM usage (min/max) to 13GB, this shouldn't happen again. I now have several tools available to keep watch on any changes, too. Thanks for your help!

comment Viewing SQL's cache RAM usage?
Ok, it seems I wasn't looking at precisely the right figures. In Perfmon I needed to be looking at SQL Server: Memory Manager -> Total Server Memory. And in SQL I can view the locked pages by typing: select * from sys.dm_os_process_memory. This blog explained it all: bit.ly/SQLRAMUsage

SQL was apparently to blame! Great thinking, thanks!

Looks like SQL WAS the culprit!

That's a very good point. We can't "freely" do it, but you're right. If we're forced to reset, we should try that first to make sure.

comment Weird memory usage in Windows Server 2008 R2
Well we couldn't install any Critical Windows updates without reseting the server because it kept running out of RAM. Pretty ridiculous. Whatever was using it, didn't want to give it back.

Yep, but "inspecting Perfmon" is more complicated than it sounds.
