Disk space error on various Active Directory / SBS Backup / Event Viewer errors.

Hi,
I have a server running SBS 2003 R2.  For users everything seems okay, however I have been receiving errors in the event viewer for about the last week or so all relating to a lack of disk space.  Prior to this point the installation was fine.

There are several error recurring in the viewer relating to different things, but all reference a lack of disk space as a problem somewhere down the line.  Needless to say there is plenty of space available on all drives.

Errors include:

When creating a new user or computer account or disabling a user in AD
Windows cannot disable/create object xxx because: There is not enough space on disk
I receive a similar error when trying to join a new computer to the domain.

SbS Backup
Backup for the last few days have failed with the following errors in the log:

07/02/2008 13:00
-------------------------------
Date: 07/02/2008
Time: 13:00
User: administrator
-------------------------------

Backup Runner started.
NetUserSetInfo(PASSWORD) failed. (0x80070070)
ChangeLocalAccountPassword failed. (0x80070070)
NetUserSetInfo(ENABLE/DISABLE) failed. (0x80070070)
EnableLocalAccount(false) failed. (0x80070070)
NTBackup finished the backup with errors.

For more information about failed backups, see the article on troubleshooting your backup at the following Web page: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=18414

Backup ended at 07 February 2008 13:00
Backup error finished with error code 0X80070070.
------
I am presume this is because backup is trying to enable / disbale the backup user account and encountering the same problem, above.


Other errors in the EventViewer include:

Can anyone help?  I was thinking it must be somekind of permissions issue???

Thanks

Did you happen to enable disk quotas and include the administrative accounts in the quotas?

Hi,

Thanks for your reply.

Disk quotas were enabled, but did not include the administrator account and no accounts exceed their total space allocation.  I have now though disabled disk quotas on all disks but the problems persist.

Any other help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Well, that was my best guess on it.  Try this.  Share out the C drive on it as Shared.  Map a drive on your machine to \\server\Shared as the administrator account (log on your pc as the administrator account).  Then open My Computer and look at the share.  Does the amount of free space look right?  If it doesn't then quotas are still in effect.  You'll need to make sure you remove the quotas and reboot the server.

Only other thing I can think of is that the VSS copies are taking up too much disk space, check there as well.

Beyond that, I'm at a loss without seeing more info or seeing the server.  What's disk management show?

Hi,
Problem solved after restart.  I guess it was the disk quota thing.
Thanks for your help.
