Not enough server storage - was ok but now one-way

    I've set up a simple network with a desktop and laptop both running XP HE
    SP2. The ethernet connected desktop can rummage around the laptop with no
    problem and the wirelessly connected laptop once did the same.

    Now the laptop refuses to allow any connection with desktop saying that
    there's not enough server storage or simply network path not found. I've
    changed the IRPStackSize to 15 - it had gone missing - and my PagedPoolSize
    is 0. Both tips picked up off this group. Still no joy. Both share the 2Mb
    ADSL connection beautifully.

    Any help anyone?

    Thought I'd post the solution. The "not enough server storage" error still
    showed so I raised the IRPStackSize to 30 (I just doubled what had been
    recommended) and.......... it works. Now for the network printer problem
    (new thread).

    Just to say also that the tip came from and is:

    "Not enough server storage

    Not enough server storage is available to process this command.

    Not enough memory to complete transaction. Close some applications and retry.
    These error messages can indicate the IRPStackSize bug on the other machine
    (the server that has the share). On that computer open the event log and
    check for event ID 2011. If this is present, it is a strong indication for
    this particular bug.
    To repair it, you have to reset the IRPStackSize parameter back to its
    default value of 15 on the server where the share is.


    Check for the presence of a value named IRPStackSize. If it doesn't exist,
    create it as type DWORD. With base set to decimal, enter the value 15.

    Reboot the computer.

    One frequent culprit is Norton AntiVirus, which tends to change this

    Check also this Microsoft Knowledge Base article. It does not mention
    Windows XP, but applies to XP as well.
