Windows XP Event ID 2017

I have a Win XP I am using as a file server, it is part of a small business workgroup.  I have had to reboot the system the last two days because I was getting an error message "there is not enough storage space to support that command" I went through my system event log and I am saw the following error, however if I click on the link to provide more information it says there is no information.

"The server was unable to allocate from the system nonpaged pool because the server reached the configured limit for nonpaged pool allocations."

Believiing it is a pagefile issue I have temporarly increase the size of my pagefile.

i don't think it's related to pagefile.
but could be the connection limmit of XP.
if you need file server with more connection then 10
you should consider a "real" server.

Hi Les Wood,
Are you running all MS patches and SP2?
If you set your Page File to 'System Managed Size', what does it change to and how much RAM are you running?

haim96,
I wonder if that is related to the maximum 10 (I think) user connection to an XP box?

Your thoughts?

Les Wood,
How many users/computers to you have connecting here?
It may be as simple as rebooting (breaking the connection) on some of your OTHER computers - not this one.

Hello Les,

My experience with this one is it is due to MaxNonPagedMemoryUsage being set too low on a Windows XP Workstation. This is a registry value under “HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanManServer\Parameters”. It may not be there (I had to add it), and by default appears to be set at 1MB (0x1000000). Increase the value slowly and the problem should go away.

Ok, Let me try and answer all questions asked.  As for the XP Os it is a SP 2 and is fully patch as of the 17 Oxct 06 and the system has 512MB of RAM. As the Virtual Memory, with it managed by the system I have 3785MB.

You are correct with a XP box the max number of users connected ah any given time is a total 10.  Iknow for a fact we have never reached that quanity (total staff 8)As for the number of users connecting to this box the office has one user and I have a total of 7 other users connecting via a VPN to of them are on the east coast.

I have done a reboot twice this week, because my users where not able connect to this fake server.  

I do have a plan to convert to Win 2003, but it is not something I can do during a normal weekday ( I manage all my servers remotely (they are not in the same city I am in).

as for the registry hack could you provide me which HKEY it should be located in.

Hi Les Wood,
Go with the registry hack if you like, but understand that even just one user/host can be "connected" what the computer thinks is 10 times.
Are you 'mapping' any shares/files/folders/printers from the other computers to this one?
If so, each 'map' is a connection.

I understand the connected issue but even if the so I don't it is a connection error because of the I only have 9 staff and with XP Pro, it has an auto disconnect of 15 min of any resources.  To add to this mess the only change to my network was a Gigbit Netgear 4 port switch and a second server. I have remove both the switch and the server out of the mix and seemed at this time to corrected my error.  I am going to leave this thread open unitl I have reconnect the second server and see if my error returns.

Jalithe1 ~
I have check out the links you provided me and everything on those links points to problems with Win 2000 Product.  Since my last posting I have not had an error message in the event log or staff members being locked out of their shares since I remove the switch and second server.  I will be traveling to the server and I plan to reconnect the second  server up (by splitting the drop and make the connections at the head end of the network and see if my problem returns.  If it does not then I will try the Gig  switch again a see what happens.  I will keep you posted.

I want to thank the two techs that stayed with me through this.  All indications are the second server (when I asked for help) was causing my problems with the XP Box by causing to thinkn it had exceeded connection quote forcing me to remove it from my network.  By converting the XP Box to a true server Win 2003 (Thanks MS MAP) the issues have gone away. Even though my new server is set to 10 CALs both have been online with no problems.   Again, Thanks to all who provided me with input and to haim96 and younghy for staying with me to the end.
