Messenger Service fails 2119

By rigneyma ·
Suddenly, changing the name on a W2kPro w/s causes the "Messenger service failed with error 2119". This nevr happened before when I rolled out a machine by cloning and renaming. This does not occur when the network wire is unplugged. There are no duplicate names on our small network. The error code isn't listed on the MS KB but it has something to do with resource allocation. But why would a name change cause this. Any help is appreciated.

The computer name should not be the same as the account name.


net helpmsg 2119
returns with

The server is currently out of the requested resource.


EXPLANATION

The server could not access enough of a resource, such as memory, to complete this task.

ACTION

Try again later. If you continue to receive this message, stop some nonessential processes or
applications and try to complete the task again. If you still have problems, your network
administrator may need to reconfigure your system.

We did end up having an account name the same as the PC name. This never came up before but renaming the PC cleared the issue.

Are you runnning WINS on a server somewhere? I would check the WINS database for this machine name. If you find it, then tombstone the records to get rid of them.

hope this helps
