Not enough server storage space available to process this command

Mon, 2008-03-31 10:05 by Dan LXIX · Forum/category:

Having had no problems with sharing folders on a USB drive round my small network, I had to re-install XP Pro on one of the PC's, and now I get the "Not enough server storage space available to process this command" error when I try to access the USB shared folders.

I've searched high and low for any info, but the only fix I've found for this - changing the IrpStackSize - hasn't worked.

Can anyone help please?

The other computer

Reread the article carefully word for word. The most frequent error is to overlook that it's the other computer where you have to adjust the IrpStackSize.

Was that it? Just curious.

Yes I did try, but I even get the error if I access the folders on the actual PC itself, via Network Places.

I'm completely lost with this one!!

Rare case

I haven't seen that before. Seems to be a rare case. I assume you have checked the IrpStackSize parameter on both computers.

What I would do next is reset the IP and Winsock stacks, as explained in, chapter TCP/IP not working. Read also the sidebox, which explains how to entirely remove and reinstall the network.

Well thanks for all the

Well thanks for all the help, but I still have no joy on this one.

Any other thoughts?

I've heard of cases where a value of 15 was not enough, and a higher value solved the problem. I'm not sure though whether that was a misinterpretation.

What exactly have you done and on which computer?

Okay. I have 2 USB external

Okay. I have 2 USB external drives with shared folders on both of them. Accessing those shared folders via Network Places on the actual PC itself gives the error, as well as accessing those shared folders from other PC's on the network. Because of this, I've been testing the changes to the IRPStackSize mainly on the PC itself, with no luck - when I have tested it via another PC I've matched the IRPStackSize value on both PC's. I tried dropping to 11, and upping it to 50, then went back to 15 and started incrementing it in steps of 3 as recommended. I've followed the steps to rebuild/uninstall/reinstall the TCP/IP stack, again with no luck.

Shared folders on any of the 3 internal hard drives work fine, and as I found out yesterday, so does a shared folder on a USB 2GB memory stick! Sahred folders on the other PC's on the network also work fine.

Bear in mind that this PC has shared these folders with no problem for over a year, until the fresh install of XP I did a few weeks ago (which I only had to do thanks to the total disaster that Adobe call CS3 Master Collection).

I'm completely lost I have to admit.

Could you check in the registry that the capitalization is exactly as above? There are 5 upper case letters in the word. Could you also check whether the value (usually 15) is of type DWORD?

Otherwise I have no further ideas. Some problems are intractable.
