Hi: I encountered a problem when enable the AWE function. The server is W2K Advanced version/SQL2K EE with 7600 MB RAM. The boot.ini does has /3GB /PAE and 'AWE enabled' is 1 in SQL. The current 'max server memory' and 'min server memory' are 5678 MB. But when I sp_configure 'max server memory', 6146 reconfigure go there is a warning message in SQL errorlog which describe 'Warning: unable to allocate 'min server memory' of 6146'. I am most appreciated if someone can tell me what cause this problem and is there any negative impact to the server?
