    Unanswered: Licensing Question

    I have three heavy duty servers with 32-bit dual P4 CPUs, 4GB RAM, SCSI boot drive, fibrechannel RAID (40+ spindle).

    I want to purchase SQL Server licenses for these machines. SQL Server 2000 standard edition seems perfect except it only supports 2GB of RAM and from my understanding, to utiliize the /3GB switch in boot.ini, you need to use Enterprise Edition. You use AWE if you have more than 4GB (which we currently don't).

    Is there any way to get standard edition to use a full 3GB?
    Anyone know what kind of upgrade path will be provided from SQL Server 2000 to SQL Server 2005 licenses?
    Will SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition utilize 3-4GB of RAM?

    Here you are, didn't even change the nick, huh?! I know you got the invoice, so I am waiting for the check.
