"Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service." error when accessing network shares
Posted on 2010-01-04
Randomly a workstation will try to browse to a network drive/share and get the following error:
"Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service."
When this occurs, you cannot browse to the network shares with either the netbios name or the IP address, e.g.
You can ping the IP and the NetBIOS name fine.
There doesn't appear to be anything in the event logs when it happens, no red or yellow errors in the App or System event logs coinciding with the time it happens.
Restarting explorer.exe through task manager fixes the issue.
I have a feeling it's related to memory, perhaps a memory leak? The user has the usual office applications open, i.e. Outlook, one or two Internet Explorer browsers and probably Word and Excel open. Nothing major.
Pagefile is stored on a seperate 10GB partition set to "System managed" , the OS partition C:\ has no pagefile set. OS is WinXP Pro patched to SP3. Running Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.
Anyone know what the possible cause could be?
