Out of resources error when moving lots of files

We have servers that recieve "out of resources" errors when moving lots of files.  For example if i use robocopy to move thoushands of files between hard drives, it will eventually fail with that error.  I get the error on multiple Windows 2003 servers and the amount of RAM doesn't matter.   Are there any tweaks that i should be applying that i can't find?   Any help is appreciated.

This is due to low kernel memory.

If you have the /3gb switch in boot.ini,  this can cause it.
Make sure you have your antivirus engine fully up to date.

Additionally you might do these registry tweaks and reboot your server to allow for more paged pool kernel memory (used for file caching heavily).

I recommand you to log a case with MS support I have seen this happening on exchange server where I had to modify the boot.ini.
One of the recommendation from the MS of that their is possible memeory leak or drivers taking up too much of kernal memory.

I troubleshoot kernel memory issues and actually teach the subject.  I know just as much about this topic as the MS guys who support it.  At some point an MS engagement might make things simpler as we might want to begin monitoring the kernel for a leak,  but there are always really basic things you can try first before it gets to that level.....

That is what I'm helping him with now.

I was only doing so in an effort to keep the asker from instantly dumping $250 on an MS engagement at your recommendation.   I replied with good info on the 24th...then you come in on the 25th and recommend he call MS completly ignoring (perhaps due to your lack of knowledge in the area) the fact that what I gave him could quite possibly resolve the issue without having to spend the cash.

You are absoulutely right.But how come any one know about some ones expertise.
I recommended what I would  have done.MS normally asks you run few tools liks perwiz,permon and few other tools which I thought would normally tell them the exact reason about why that happened.
