Network prob w/ Maxtor external drive

By CMB from Omaha ·
I'm a home user with a small wireless LAN.

My new Maxtor 3000LE hard drive works fine on the machine it's attached to (runs XP professional). I created a shared folder on the Maxtor drive, which the other machines on my LAN can "see" but not access. When I attempt to open the "Maxtor" drive or folder from the Windows 2000 Pro machine, I get the message "Not enough server storage available to process this command". The Windows ME machine gives a message that implies I can't access the Maxtor b/c I'm out of RAM (highly unlikely). Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

Network prob w/ Maxtor external drive

A couple of things might cause that error.

This 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.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
\SYSTEM
\CurrentControlSet
\Services
\lanmanserver
\parameters

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 parameter.

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