INSUFFICIENT SYSTEM RESOURCES EXIST TO COMPLETE THE REQUESTED SERVICE - 800705AA

Hi,

I have several NT SP6 machines which have recently begun displaying the following error and which occurs while the logon scripts are running:-

Windows Script Host
Script:    ....vbs
Line:      ....
Char      ....
Error:    Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service.
Code:    800705AA
Source: (null)

Clicking 'OK' allows the scripts to finish and the user to carry on as normal.  

These boxes all have 128MB of RAM or higher.

I have already done some investigation and I gather this problem may be connected to improper Registry quota and VM / paging file settings.  

Within the following key, hkey_local_machine\system\currentcontrolset\control\session manager\memory management,  I can confirm the PagedPoolSize value is set to '0'.



The reason why I am asking this question is that I have a suspicion this is stopping an application called SAP 6.20 from launching.  It's a huge app (for the environment / platform it is being deployed to) and is resource intensive.

Regards.

good point... funny though I think around that time MS recommented that the page file be about 110% of real memory.  I usually had it set at twice the RAM as a minimum and 4 times the RAM as the maximum, giving in this config 256-512. The MS memory management at that time was not awe inspiring.

 Oddly, this appears to be happening during startup; so I wonder what besides the OS and this SAP product is attempting to allocate memory.

Another thing that can be done to reduce resource usage is delete all temp files and internet temp files.  Anything thing else will have to be done with caution... e,g, profiles, 3d party app services and the like.

Did a quick search on SAP 6.20 and the memory requirements are close to what you have in real memory, that with NT's requirements probably maxed everything out.  The constant paging there after will definitely slow things down to a crawl.

Have you tried changing the Page File size?
With 128 MB RAM, you should be running at least 268-270 MB.

Since this is breaking down at the 'start-up' level, you can do an 'msconfig' and pick what you want to run at start up -- and manually run the other apps as needed.

NOTE TO ADMINISTRATOR:-

Apologies but I wanted to split the points 250/250 between ECNSSMT and YOUNGHV - can this be changed?

Hi Timmmo,

I believe that you will have to open a request in the community support area to reopen this question for the purpose of redistributing the points.
