SQL Server 2008 Express: What happens if I install under a machine with more than 1 GB of RAM and dual core? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    SQL Server 2008 Express has a limitation of 1 GB of RAM. What happens if I install it under a machine with more than 1 GB of RAM? Is there any problem to install under a machine with dual or quad core processor?

  • SQL Server will only grab memory up to the limit of 1GB and does take the number of sockets into account not the actual cores.
