  • There is not enough storage space available to process this command

    We've had this error reported, and after speaking to the vendor, it appears to be Windows rather than application related.
    The system event log reports "The server was unable to allocate from the system paged pool because the pool was empty"

    This appears to be kernel memory related, the first sign of trouble was the server stopped responding, and I could not RDP onto it.

    The server is a physical server, 2 x quad core processors with 4 GB of RAM
    The applications that are affected all seem to be using print drivers/print spooler. The issue has been fixed before by restarting the print spooler, or rebooting the server. But this time it did not fix the issue. All the applications are running fine, but one. This application runs fine on any other server.

    Does anyone have an idea of what could be causing the issue?

    The message suggests low disk space

      All drives have more than enough hard drive space left - 6GB on C: and 88 on D:

        The message is a little deceptive - you may have a memory issue - not disk.

        See the article kb285089

          I've read the article, but what is confusing me, is the fact that our DR server does not have this issue.
          Same specs as Prod server, same applications running on it (when failed over, of course)
          Neither of the servers have the registry setting
