    I am looking for a best practice in sizing my pagefile for a domain
    controller. Is it still physical memory plus 12 megs? Is there any
    technet articles on this topic?

    "Is it still physical memory plus 12 megs?"

    I don't see that recommended anymore, and by default the pagefile for
    XP/2003 is as shown in the configuration and article below.

    Min. Physical RAM x 1.5
    Max. 4095 MB (the maximum limit on a system with 4GB of Physical RAM)

    Configuring page files for optimization and recovery in Windows Server 2003,
    in Windows 2000, and in Windows NT:
