    The server was unable to allocate from the system paged pool

    ok having following problem

    http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=822219&SD=tech

    it then basicly causes network to run to stop

    in kb article it talks about "To disable opportunistic locking on the server, set the following registry value to 0:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\LanmanServer\Parameters\EnableOplocks"

    is that is ok to do will it have any other adverse effects at moment want to keep system running then will look at why it is doing it.

    any advice

    cheers

    Re: The server was unable to allocate from the system paged pool

    There's a driver or service leaking kernel memory. You need to run poolmon.exe to find hte culprit. (poolmon.exe is in the w2k3 support tools).

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q177415/

    Usually its either a dodgy hardware driver, antivirus software or backup software in my experience.

    Did you enable pool tagging like the KB article said?

    thought you would be interested to know we think it is...

    was really obvious running out of room on c drive where page file was....

    so we have moved page file to g drive

    Re: The server was unable to allocate from the system paged pool

    Thought it was always good practise to have the server's Paging File on a different physical drive anyway...

    Certainly what I do on my servers (the ones that Fujitsu don't own, at least).
