Hello,
I have a Win 2000 SBS machine on a Dell PowerEdge. I looked at the Health Monitor and noticed some warnings under the Memory section. The alert is:

Memory: Warning condition. WMI Status: 0

Also users have been complaining the past few days about the server being slow (it has the QuickBooks Enterprise version on it, serving about 6 people simultaneously). Anyone know what this is?
thanks in advance

ok now the Health Monitor log is flooded with the same warning, but now there's some "Critical" errors too. Here's the error code:

Critical      6/20/2006 5:28:48 AM      PagingFile      WEST      PagingFile : Critical condition. WMI Status: 2147749889 Enumeration failed. Object not found. Data Collector is misconfigured.

I've also gotten "out of virtual memory" a few times recently. Anyone know how to resolve this? thanks

I cleaned up the c: drive, about 3 gigs or so. then I increased the page file to 2600 megs, and rebooted.
so far no errors.
