IRPStackSize for SBS 2003, Event ID 2011

Howdy,
All of a sudden, shared resources on the 2  USB drives that are connected direct to the server are not available.
I get this:
\\ServerName\Storage Folder is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource.
Contact the administrator of this server to fond out if you have access permissions.
Not enough server storage is available to process this command

....and....

Event ID 2011

Should I assume that the IRPStackSize needs to be created and then set at 15? I checked in:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters
and there was no IRPStackSize at all.

Thanks for the help,
DR

Hi,
OK..did so. Do I need to completely restart the sever or can a single service be restarted without causing any interruptions?
I set the value at 15 for now.

Restart the Server.

HI
I checked this:

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/support/ee/transform.aspx?ProdName=Windows+Operating+System&ProdVer=5.0&EvtID=2011&EvtSrc=Srv&LCID=1033


The default size is 15 stack frames. Each stack frame is 50 bytes. If the value is less than 15, advanced users can safely set it back to 15. If 15 is too small, try increasing the number by increments of 5 until this event is no longer logged. Changing this registry key requires a restart of the Server service.
If I simply restart the "Server Service", would this not be enough?
Thanks
DR

Hi,
I decided to go ahead and restart.
Did NOT help. I had set value at 15 but am still seeing Event ID 2011
The server's configuration parameter "irpstacksize" is too small for the server to use a local device. Please increase the value of this parameter.

Any suggestions?
Thanks

Just to verify, are you getting the error message on the SBS, or just on a workstation that is trying to connect to the USB drives that are attached to the SBS?

Add the IRPStackSize registry entry on the machine where you are getting the message.
