Hi,

I have a problem with an SBS 2003 machine.  A few days ago the server restarted because of Windows Updates and when it restarted I received a message about some services not being able to start.  I looked in Event Viewer and found an error saying that DNS could not start because there is not enough storage available.  I found that the C drive had run out of space, so I freed up more than 3Gb of space.  I then went back and tried to manually start the service but I receive the error below. I have also attached two further errors found in the DNS log.

Could not start the DNS server service on Local computer.
Error 14: Not enough storage is available to complete this operation

To workaround this I have had to add Hosts files to each PC but I need to find a long term solution, as I have no internet access on the server.

Event Type:	Error
Event Source:	DNS
Event Category:	None
Event ID:	408
Date:		21/07/2008
Time:		15:36:51
User:		N/A
Computer:	ALPHA
Description:
The DNS server could not open socket for address 127.0.0.1. 
Verify that this is a valid IP address for the server computer.  If it is NOT valid use the Interfaces dialog under Server Properties in the DNS Manager to remove it from the list of IP interfaces.  Then stop and restart the DNS server. (If this was the only IP interface on this machine and the DNS server may not have started as a result of this error.  In that case remove the DNS\Parmeters\ ListenAddress value in the services section of the registry and restart.) 
 
If this is a valid IP address for this machine, make sure that no other application (e.g. another DNS server) is running that would attempt to use the DNS port.
