The information in this article applies to:
 - Microsoft Windows NT Workstation version 4.0
 - Microsoft Windows NT Server version 4.0
The server service fails to start and the following events are recorded:
   Event ID: 7023
      Source: Service Control Manager
      Type: Error
      Description: The Server service terminated with the following error:
                   More data is available.
   Not enough storage is available to process this command.
   Event ID: 7001
      Source: Service Control Manager
      Type: Error
      Description: The Net Logon service depends on the Server service
                   which failed to start because of the following error:
                   More data is available.
If you attempt to start the server service manually, the following errors
may be displayed:
   A system error has occurred.
   System error 234 has occurred.
   More data is available.
   System error 8 has occurred.
   Not enough storage is available to process this command.
Other services that may fail to start (also with event ID 7001) include the
computer browser and the directory replicator, because these services are
dependent on the Server service.
The cause of these errors is the result of too much data stored in the
following key in the registry.
   NOTE: The above registry key is one path; it has been wrapped for
The Server service queries the registry value above for its entries. The
buffer for the amount of information that the Server service can accept
when it queries is approximately 32 KB. If there are more than 32 KB in
that entry, the Server service will fail to start and return the error
"More data is available," or "Not enough storage is available."
The solution is to remove any unnecessary entries from this value in the
registry, or apply Windows NT Service Pack 3.
The default information contained in this key is:
Keywords          : ntdomain NTSrvWkst
Version           : WinNT:4.0
Platform          : winnt
Hardware          : x86
