Insuff. sys. res. in User Mgr for Dom.

By scheurer ·
I have started getting the message "Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service. Do you want to select another domain to administer?" when I try to open User Manager for Domains, either from the domain controller or from an NT workstation, and also when I try to set security permissions on folders on other servers in our domain. Technet only has one reference to this, and I don't think it applies (says it is for NT 3.5 and 3.51). If I reboot the domain controller, it goes away for awhile, but then returns again after a day or two. This started happening about 4 weeks ago, and we've had the same domain controller for over 4 years (non-brand clone type), with no serious problems. The server has 384MB of Ram and176MB free on the C: drive (1 GB partition), along with a 20 GB raid array (F: drive) and two other partitions (G: and H: drives) of 1 and 2 GB (same spindle as the C: drive). Anyone have any ideas about the cause? Thanks. Vernene Scheurer

I do have sp6a loaded on that server, but will load it again, just to be sure that isn't the problem, based on the suggested "answer". Thanks.

Try to move the pagefile.sys to another partition : It can be fragment too much.

we had a similar problem with the server running out of resources, also taking literally hours to reboot. problem was the drives were so fragmented that there was no contiginous space for pagefile, plus it causes problems with mft (which is why thesloooow boot). I installed norton speedisk, ran the most complete scan on all the drives (took over 8 hours), and since then everything has been fine, and drive boots up in less than 10 minutes. If you haven't tried defragmenting, i would try thatnext and see if it helps.

From another source I have learned that the Norton Anti-Virus Corporate Edition Version 7.61 build 35 can cause these symptoms, and we recently switched to this, so I believe that is the culprit. We have recently downloaded the build 37, and that is supposed to solve the problem. We'll see what happens!
