Memory Leak SBS2003 STD

    A couple of months ago I had to rebuild a SBS2003 STD server for a customer
    from scratch after a server meltdown and no working backup (Yeah Yeah, I
    think he has learnt his lesson).
    I noticed after a few weeks they were getting lack of memory warnings, after
    investigation it seems that a sqlservr.exe process was the cause, digging
    deeper the process was furnishing Windows Sharepoint Services, stopping this
    service (MSSQL$SHAREPOINT) cures the memory leak. It also obviously stops
    the SBS Intranet/Extranet.

    Q1. Is there a quik fix available for this ?
    Q2. My customer doesn't actually use WSS/Sharepoint, Can I uninstall it
    without breaking anything else in the SBS installation.

    Thanks Ian M

  2. What ram? If more than 2 it's not really a leak, the performance
    counter needs to be tweaked.

    I would leave it. It's part of the server and as such when patching for
    SBS 2003 sp1 SharePoint is a key part.

    Thanks All.

    It's running at 2.25 at the moment but I have seen this up at 4+, 2GB
    installed RAM.

    I have another SBS2003 server running a similar setup where WSS is being
    used, which isnt showing this problem. When I get some free minutes
    (business a little rushed at the moment as I run up to a vacation) I will
    run some comprisons and see if I can narrow down the specific cause.
