Oracle has a guide for tuning that includes changing the Windows Server to be an Application Server (see below). It doesn't tell you how to do it, but only tells you to see o/s documentation. I haven't been able to find documentation that would configure the memory as described. Does anyone know how this is configured on Windows Server 2003?
