"There's not enough storage space in the server to process this commad" message

I've been tryin for "years" now to fix my goda..., $#&@@ network withou success.

One of the messages I get whenever I try to work on another computer's HD is:

"\\PC1\SUCH HD (G) is not accessible. Maybe you don't have a permission to use this network resource. Contact the server administrator to know if you have access permission.

There's not enough storage space in the server to process this commad"

What does this mean? I don't even have a (real) server.

I see this in the win explorer:
Windows Microsoft Network
-----PC1
-----PC2
-------------C
-------------D
-----PC3

I cannot access neither C nor D in PC2. Can any1 please help?

Try using the windows network wizard. If that dose not work unshare all your drives from PC2 and reshare them again clicking the ALLOW ANYONE TO MODEFY MY FILES (something like that) on.

Hi, bladeeta21,

I've tried your suggestion about 30 times. No use...

You can't save files from one PC to a CD or DVD-R on another, you first have to copy those files to a Harddisk on that other PC and then record them to optical devices from there.

Do This:

Go to COntrol Panel >Admin Tools> Computer Management > Local Users & Groups > Users

Here create a username called SHAREUSER or anything you like and assign it a password. Now make sure that this user exists on every computer on your network. Now on your own computer which might be PC2 or PC3 create a similar user and assign the same password to it. Now whenever you login to your windows with this username and password you wont have any problems.

Basically this is a simplified way to assign user rights where a basic user will have access to shared resources on every system. If other systems also use the same username passowrd they will be able to access files on your system too.

One more thing u need to check is that under Control Panel >Network connections >Local area connection, check the properties and make sure that both Client for Microsoft Networks and File and Printer Sharing is ticked and installed.

I think you have a P2P networking setup which you are trying to use to share files. If not then you might wanna provide some additional information abt your network setup and what you intend to do.

Also while you are at it try and remove any spaces in the Drive Volume names. Give it underscores but no spaces for sure. so instead of Such Disk (G:) give it the name Such_Disk(G:).

Hi, mysticaldan,

Ok, suppose I create a new user called SHAREUSER, but how do I move all my windows settings to this new user? Or is it not possible?

Thanks

When I go to My computer>Manage>Users and local groups>Users I see the users that already exist. How can I assign a password to the users already there, so I don't have to create a new user and loos my original settings (it's gonna take a whiel to confugure it all again).

Thanks again!

Right click on the user and select "Set Password" Make sure that this user is created on the other systems and not your own. Your own system already logs in using this username and password, so what u need to do is to create this user on the other netwoked computers and they wont need to login using this username and password as it is.

If you wanna open up your network you can right click on the drives and select sharing and then select access to everyone.

Are u looking to use the resources from your system to the others or from the others to yours also?? If its the second then u need to create the same amount of users as the others PC's. For Eg.

PC1 : username : COMP1
PC2: username : COMP2
PC3: username : COMP3

Now on PC1 you need to create 2 usernames withe the same passwords. The usernames have to be COMP2 and COMP3. Similarily on PC2 u need to create COMP1 and COMP3 as the usernames and so on. For P2P this is the simplest way to manage resources and share them. Now each drive etc on ur network can be given independent access depending on the username that shud legally access it.

Hi, p_davis,

Your suggestion did help a bit. I read the MS page you mentioned and set the IRPStackSize to 50 in all my 3 computers. Now PC1 can see PC2 and vice-versa, which for some odd reason stopped happening, but I still can't enter my notebook (wireless connection) from PC1 or PC2, although I can enter PC1 and 2 from the laptop.

I'll keep on trying mysticaldan's suggestion.

BTW, I tried to set a password for the already existing users and got a message saying I could loose data. Is this really dangerous?

Thanks!

i think that is a standard message for setting a password for a user that you are logged in as.--

You do not need to change any existing user passwords. Only create new usernames on systems that dont have those users, Just keep the passwords the same as the original user. So if PC1 is primalrily being used by username Tom with password 1234 then make sure that both PC02 and PC03 have a new user called TOM with password 1234 on them. Similarily for the other systems. If PC02 is used by username John with passwrd 2345 then make sure that PC01 and PC03 both have usernames JOHN with password 2345 created on them. Its maximum a 10 minute job and all shud be well.


See if these help out, Make sure ur allocating static IP's to all the systems, checkout the second link for sure to see if you are missing out any point. :

What in the world can be so darn?

Well, folks, belive it or not, I fixed the whole damn thing by simply updating (that is, buying the new version) my Zone Alarm.
Either I am way too illiterate at ZA or ZA itself is a source of great misfortune...

To sphinx32:

I have 3 computers. 2 desktops hardwired to a router and notebook wirelessly connected to the same router.

Windows XP SP2 on the 3 of them.

Actually I don't have a server, just 3 regular computers, and for most applications, none work as a server (as far as I am concerned).

I could see my laptop from both my desktops but could not change any file or copy or move anything. On the other hand, I could change, copy or mive any file in any of the DTs through my laptop. It all changed when I, accidentally, renewed my signature with Zone Alarm...

So much time wasted and the culprit was ZA. :^((
