Event ID 2022 before server crashes

Once every other month or so, my 2k server storing all of our user directories goes down.

Each time this happens, it's the same story in the event viewer, an entry with Event ID 2022 - each entry one minute apart from the previous.

The KB didnt help much, and I did a search on google and it mentioned something about the server blowing up because of too many simultaneous connections. That shouldn't be an issue for us though, I don't have more than ~20 people connecting at a time.

Any ideas?

redline, you were close. This problem occurs because the Server service is unable to keep up with the demand for connections, most probably because the number set is too low.

Try this:

1. Start Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe).
 
2. Locate and click the following registry key:
   HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters
 
3. On the Edit menu, click Add Value, and then add the following registry value:
 
Value Name: MaxFreeConnections
Data Type: REG_DWORD
Value: Any Value Up to 100 (in decimal)
 
4. On the Edit menu, click Add Value, and then add the following registry value:
 
Value Name: MinFreeConnections
Data Type: REG_DWORD
Value: Any Value Up to 32 (in decimal)
 
5. Quit Registry Editor.

Try disabling it for a while.  Thsi has been noted with v. 4.5.  You might want to upgrade.

Geeez, a "B" grade. What is it with people today. Too much effort required for an answer that solves the problem and moving the mouse to select an "A"?
