    I am receiving error: "Not enough server storage is available to process this command" when connecting to a NT 4.0 workstation share. Is this referring to storage on the box I'm connecting to or the box I am running Hyena on?

    Re: Error msg

    This is one of those wierd error messages that only a Microsoft software developer really knows what it means or what has caused the error. Its sort of like a punt in football.

    Verify that you have the latest service packs installed on the remote computer. The error probably means that there isn't enough memory or resources available on the remote computer to make the list of shares to give to another computer (your computer). Also, verify that you are using a relatively recent version of Hyena too.

    This is a strange error to get when listing shares on a workstation, as usually there are not very many shares, so I'd be curious if you know how many shares are on the remote computer.

      Thanks. It appears that it is at the workstation. I get same error just connecting to \\computername\C$. The workstation is NT 4.0 w/64M.

        See if rebooting the workstation resolves the problem.

          Err Msg: Not Enough Server Storage Is Available to Process This Command
          The information in this article applies to:
          Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0 Terminal Server Edition
          Microsoft Windows NT Server 3.5
          Microsoft Windows NT Server 3.51
          Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0
          Microsoft Windows NT Server, Enterprise Edition 4.0

          This article was previously published under Q225782
          IMPORTANT: This article contains information about modifying the registry. Before you modify the registry, make sure to back it up and make sure that you understand how to restore the registry if a problem occurs. For information about how to back up, restore, and edit the registry, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
          256986 Description of the Microsoft Windows Registry

          SYMPTOMS
          When you use a locally mapped shared and the IRPStackSize parameter is set too low, you may receive the following error message:

          Not enough server storage is available to process this command.
          CAUSE
          This behavior can occur in the following operating systems:
          Windows NT Server 4.0 Service Pack 3 (SP3) or earlier
          Windows NT Terminal Server 4.0 without Service Pack 4 (SP4)
          NOTE: This problem can also occur with service packs after SP3 on Windows NT 4.0 if you install certain software such as Norton AntiVirus software.

          Depending on the hardware configuration of the specific computer, the default value may not be large enough for the SRV service to properly administer shared folders on some of the physical drives. You may see one or both of the following event messages:

          Event ID: 2011
          Source: SRV
          Description: The server's configuration parameter "irpstacksize" is too small for the server to use a local device. Please increase the value of this parameter.

          Event ID: 0
          Source SRV
          Description: Description for Event ID 0 could not be found. It contains the insertion string \device\LanManServer.
          RESOLUTION
          WARNING: If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.

          You can increase the IRPStackSize value. You must first add this value to the following key if it is not already present:
          HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Par ameters

          Value Name: IRPStackSize
          Data Type: DWORD
          Default: 0x4
          Maximum: 0xC


          Increasing this value requires some memory from the non-allocated memory pool, but the impact should not be noticeable.

          NOTE: It is not always advisable to set the IRPStackSize value to its maximum of 12. Generally, you should start the value at 4 and work your way up, increasing the value by 1 each time. The problem may still occur if the value is too high.

          This error message may also occur after installing or uninstalling virus-scanning software. You may want to remove the virus-scanning software or increase the IRPStackSize if you need to use the software.
          STATUS
          Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
          MORE INFORMATION
          The default IRPStackSize for Windows NT 4.0 SP3 and earlier and Windows NT Terminal Server 4.0 is 4. The default value for SP4 is 11.

            No offense, but it would be nice to have the link to the Q article you got this from, rather than just copy/paste.

            Thanks!!
