WinXP network connection problem: Not enough server memory ("Für den Befehl steht nicht genügend Serverspeicher zur Verfügung")Tags: network, windows
No Comments »
I just found a solution to a problem that was getting on my nerves for quite a time: I am using three computers, all WinXP Pro. They are all connected in one simple network and I don’t use much more than some folders to copy files from here to there. It worked fine for a long time but one day I couldn’t connect to anyone of the computers anymore. I am pretty sure I didn’t change a thing – it just happened. I browsed a lot (and I mean a lot) of websites that are dedicated to this problem. Most of them say (text copied from here):
- Start the registry editor (e.g., regedit.exe).
- Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services \lanmanserver\parameters.
- Double-click IRPStackSize (or if this registry setting does not exist, create it of type DWORD and ensure the case is correct).
- Change the base to decimal, set the value to the default value for your OS, and click OK.
- Reboot the computer or restart the “Server service”.
It did not work for me.
But I found the solution two minutes ago one on single German web site: When changing the value of IRPStackSize DON’T CHANGE TO DECIMAL. Change to (or leave it at) hex!.
Hex 30 (= Dec 48) was enough for me and after a reboot it worked again.
What a bug, MS, please fix it!
