Description – When an ESXi host boots the screen changes from yellow & gray to purple. You receive an error that says, “The system has found a problem on your machine and cannot continue. Could not populate the filesystem: Admission check failed for memory resources.”

Solution – Add more RAM.
When logging into Windows you receive an error that says, “Either there is no default mail client or the current mail client cannot fulfill the messaging request. Please run Microsoft Outlook and set it as the default mail client.”
When running Windows Update it may fail with error code 80243004.
After that happens you will notice that if you expand the system tray there is a lot of white space.
To “resolve” the issue right click the Taskbar & click Properties. In the Notification area frame click Customize. Put a check by Always show all icons and notifications on the taskbar & click OK. Now all the white space will be expanded in the system tray. Hover over all the white space & it will go away. Now run Windows Update again.
When opening VMware Player it says, “Expired license” in the title bar. Lower down in the application it says, “Your evaluation license has expired. To continue commercial use of this product, purchase a license.”
This can happen if you install VMware Workstation then unistall it after the trial expired.
To resolve the issue open regedit & browse to HKLM\Software\VMware, Inc.\VMware Workstation & delete the License.ws.9.X.XX.XXXXXX value. Now when you open VMware player the message will be gone & will say, “(Non-commercial use only)” which is what the free version sould say.
Warning: This post deals with editing the registry. If you don’t know what that is stop right here & ask someone else to help you. Using the registry editor incorrectly can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall Windows. Use the registry editor at your own risk.
When copying a large file from Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2008 R2 you may receive an error that says, “Error 0x8007046A: Not enough server storage is available to process this command.”
If you try to copy the same file to a USB hard drive on the Windows Server 2003 box you get a similar error that says, “Cannot copy filename: Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service.”
To resolve this create the following registery entry on the Windows Server 2003 box & reboot the server.
If you still receive the error you can increase the value by 3, reboot & try again. The maximum size is 50.
When installing Windows 7 using an answer file you may receive an error that says, “Windows could not assign a volume to a partition on disk 0. The error occurred while applying the unattend answer file’s <DiskConfiguration> setting. Error code 0x800703ED.”
In the answer file I did not have the format (NTFS) selected for the second partition.
When opening the Exchange Management Console (EMC) in Exchange 2010 you may receive a nice long error that says, “The following error occurred while attempting to connect to the specified Exchange server: The attempt to connect to SERVERNAME/PowerShell using ‘Kerberos’ authentication failed: Connecting remote server failed with the following error message : The WS-Management service cannot process the request. The system load quota of 1000 requests per 2 seconds has been exceeded. Send future requests at a slower rate or raise the system quota. The next request from this user will not be approved for a least 1928339328 milliseconds.”
You get a similar error in the Exchange Management Shell (EMS).
Run the following command from an elevated command prompt:
Now the EMC will open.
When streaming a movie from Netflix on a Samsung DB-E5300 Blu-ray player you may receive an error that says, “We’re having trouble playing this title right now. Please try again later or select a different title. aip-701″
Problem is if you try it later or a different title it still happens.
I found several sites where people swear that using a Nintendo style code (Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, Up, Up, UP, Up) will pop up a deactivation windows but I could not get that to work. In my case I had to do a reset of the Blu-ray player using the steps on this site.
In summary the steps are:
- Power on the Blu-ray player & remove any disc.
- Press and hold the Play/Pause button on the from the the player for about 8 seconds or until ‘Resetting all settings to default values’ is displayed on the TV.
- If the player does not power off, press & hold the power button until it does.
- Step through the initial setup wizard.
The first time the reset didn’t work but I did it a second time & it worked. I was asked if I was a Netflix member then my credentials.
In Lansweeper when scanning a computer it may report several WMI errors that say, “A security package specific error occurred. (Exception from HRESULT: 0×80070721)”
The Find solutions link takes you to a page that suggests it could be a firewall issue. While that could be the problem in my case it was that the time on the remote computer was 15 minutes behind. As soon as I corrected the time I was able to do a full rescan of the computer.
When offering Remote Assistance you may receive an error that says, “Your offer to help could not be sent”.
Now there can be a lot of reasons for that error (like the three mentioned in the error for starters), but this time it was due to something I had never seen before.
I had the user log off & I was able to RDP into the computer. I had a look at the Event Log & saw an error that said, “The HelpAssistant account is disabled or missing, or the password could not be verified. Remote Assistance will be disabled. Restart the computer in safe mode and type the following text at the command prompt: sessmgr.exe -service”.
I gotta say that is actually a pretty helpful error. Even beter is you don’t really have to boot into safe mode. Just open a command prompt & do the following steps:
net stop sessmgr
net start sessmgr
Note – sessmgr is the Remote Desktop Help Session Manager service.
I logged off & had the user log back on. Offered remote assistance & it worked like a charm.
