First off I noticed that your DNS server is not your DHCP server.  If you are running a Windows AD network with DNS you should be using your DC as a DHCP server.  Doing this will ensure that your DNS gets updated with the IP address of DHCP hosts on your network.  Don't think that will fix your problem, but you should correct it anyways.

Second on your client I noticed that you have 3 DNS servers listed, yours + 2 additional.  Your workstations should only be looking at the server for DNS and DNS on your server should either be configured with root hints or forwarders to your ISP DNS servers.  This may be part of the problem.

To fix the above 2 problems I recommend you disable DHCP on your router and enable it on your server then set your gateway (your router) and DNS (your DNS server) options

This link http://www.windowsbbs.com/networking/18645-not-enought-server-storage.html might have some useful info at the bottom of the page.

This one from Symantec http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/nav.nsf/0/4f7d50c8b753a25788256962005ce9ac?OpenDocument recommends deleting the IRPStackSize registry key then reboot.  You can always export the key before you delete it and recreate it later so worth a try.

And this one http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/sunset-c2002kb.nsf/0/6b746f3d747e347085256edf00520f24?OpenDocument says to change the PagePoolSize key on the server (try this one first)

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

The article states that this error message may also occur after installing or uninstalling virus-scanning software. What is AV installed on your server, if any? Also, could you run (on the server) command "IPCONFIG /ALL" and post the output?

I can now map drives except the RAID 5  volume on the XPx64 Workstation.

It still comes up w/ the "not enough sever storage to process this command" error.

Any ideas why this volume is still affected?
