We have an older model Dell Server running windows 2000 sp4, updated.  Recently, a user could not access her files and running "net view <servername>" from her workstation returned an error 58.  The same was true running net view from other workstations as well.  I rebooted the server and the users could then access their files and I could do a net view on that server with no errors.

In the event log, I found the following:

Event ID: 2019  Source: Srv
The server was unable to allocate from the system nonpaged pool because the pool was empty.

Event ID: 2511 Source: Server
The server service was unable to recreate the share NETLOGON because the directory
C:\WINNT\SYSVOL\sysvol\ic.internal\SCRIPTS no longer exists.

Event ID: 5706 Source: Netlogon
The Netlogon service could not create server share C:\WINNT\SYSVOL\sysvol\ic.internal\SCRIPTS.  
The following error occurred:  The system cannot find the file specified.  


Can anyone give me any insight or direction about these errors please, especially the one in Srv?  The SCRIPTS directory does not exist on the server.  Should it?

Sounds like you are running out of memory.  Do you have any 3rd party apps running on the server?

I am also seeing events with Source: DNS Event ID: 4000, 4004 and 4016.  Could this also be related to running out of memory?

They could be related do you see them at the same time as the 2019.  I would check taskmanager to see if there are any apps taking a lot of memory you could have a leaky app.

I think this could be related to resources because everything I do on the server shows extremely slow response time, and yes I saw the dns events at the same time as the 2019 event.

Do you have some more Ram you can put in the server?  Does task manager show an app that is using a large chunk of memory.  If you create a baseline and then check every day you should be able to see what app is using all the memory.

The app that is taking all the memory is dns.  I really believe that is the issue.  We will be reorganizing and moving some other applications off this server so hopefully that will free up more resources.  thanks for the assistance!
