0x8007046A When Copying a Large File

October 31, 2012 Leave a comment

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.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanserver\parameters]
“IRPStackSize”=dword:00000015

If you still receive the error you can increase the value by 3, reboot & try again. The maximum size is 50.

0x800703ED Error During Unattended Windows 7 Installation

October 29, 2012 Leave a comment

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.

Extending the C Drive

October 26, 2012 Leave a comment

I recently had an issue where a server’s C drive was a few megabytes away from being full.

The good news was it was a virtual machine so it’s easy to make the hard drive bigger. Shutdown the VM. In the vSphere client right click the virtual machine & select Edit Settings. Select the hard disk & increase the Provisioned Size to the desired size.

Power on the VM & login. Back in the Disk Management there is now an additional 20GB of unallocated space.

The bad news was it’s Windows Server 2003 so there’s no built-in way to extend the System drive. Luckily there’s a nice little tool from Dell called ExtPart. Download & extract it to a folder. Back in Disk Management right click Disk 0 & select Properties. Select the Volumes tab & note the Unallocated space. In my case it is 20505.

Close Disk Management. This is very important or you will get an error later. Double click extpart.exe. At the Volume to extend (drive letter or mount point) prompt type c: & press Enter. At the Size to expand the volume (MB) prompt type the amount of unallocated space noted earlier & press Enter. Again, in my case 20505.

It will just take a few seconds & then the command prompt will close. Open Disk Managment again. Notice the full capacity of the drive is being used.

Error Opening EMC

October 10, 2012 Leave a comment

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:

iisreset /noforce

Now the EMC will open.

Error Streaming Netflix

October 7, 2012 3 comments

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:

  1. Power on the Blu-ray player & remove any disc.
  2. 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.
  3. If the player does not power off, press & hold the power button until it does.
  4. 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.

Lansweeper Error when Scanning Computer

October 2, 2012 1 comment

In Lansweeper when scanning a computer it may report several WMI errors that say, “A security package specific error occurred. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070721)”

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.
