    Drive can't be mapped: Error

    We run just 3 pc's which drives are mapped. No problems until this morning. I have added another external disk drive, letter F. I unshared the first external disk drive, E, then shared F. All three pc's were re-booted. On pc 3 and 2, upon trying to map F on pc2 the following message is received "The mapped drive could not be created because the following error has ocurred: Not enough server storage is available to process this command" Can anyone please clarify what this means? All 3 pc's are running WXpHeSp3 and connect via a Netgear ethernet router (which is firwalled to the outside. Never seen this message before though!

    Re: Drive can't be mapped: Error

    This error message is usually due to the irpstacksize on your server being too small.

    Try following the instructions in this Microsoft Knowledge Base article to increase irpstacksize.

    Have been increasing the IRPStackSize, now going to try 36, without success so far. Just to clarify your comment please: this is happening on the server or client pc?

    I have irpstacksize on my Windows XP system that serves all the disks set to 50 (32 hex), but on my other PCs it is left to the default value.

    You might as well check the event logs on all the PCs to see which, if any, have generated event ID 2011.

    Hi Suart, Setting stack at 50 has made no difference. Have put back external disk drive that was being read this morning - no difference. So now to disconnect external drive 2....

    You are rebooting after changing the registry? To find the event logs open a run box, type eventvwr.msc, push enter.

    Re: Drive can't be mapped: Error

    Now found that there was an error in reading pc2 - Acronis wouldn't recover (!!!) so my girls did a complete re-install :-( of XP. Now the other pc's can see the external disk drives. So thanks for the help and advice.
