Hi,

We have a windows 2003 r2 file share server.  it has a 1tb lun attached to SAN hosting file store data.

every few days, users lose their shares and the only way to fix the problem is to reboot the server.  Somestimes, it only lasts for 30 minutes, and the server has to be rebooted again.

Looking at the event viewer around the time of the crash it said:

eveint id 2020
"The server was unable to allocate from the system paged pool because the pool was empty"

This is quite urgent.

thanks

Phil

Check that the disk that holds your pagefile is the correct size and that it is not thin-provisioned, and that the datastore that it's on has sufficient space to accomodate the full disk size if necessary.
