Event Id 2017 The server was unable to allocate from the system nonpaged pool because the server reached the configured limit for nonpaged pool allocations.

    General discussion

  • Apparently you need to tell Windows that you want to use the machine as a file server and that it should allocate resources accordingly.  Set the following registry key to ‘1′:

    HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\LargeSystemCache

    and set the following registry key to ‘3′:

    HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters\Size

    After making these changes and restarting, I haven’t seen this issue arise again

  • Thanks krbaugh, I was so frustrated with this and hopefully I will not get disconnected on the network again. I have mapped a drive on my XP machine and the software is running on Windows 7 Pro. My XP was accessing all other computers but not the Windows 7. I will post if that error comes back or I get disconnected to access that mapped drive.

  • krbaugh, thank you so much! I had a Windows 7 system that just kept crashing with this event log error. I followed your instructions and it is working great! You are a life saver!

  • Thank you, thank you, thank you. I had the problem with XP machines being locked out of a Windows 7 pseudo file server that would only resolve with a reboot of the win 7 machine.  A Microsoft engineer advised that I needed to run the 'file server' in safe mode or clean boot mode to try and find what software program was causing the issue.  Luckily I decided instead to just look through the event viewer, and I found this very Event ID at times that I knew the xp machines had been kicked out of the server.  I've just done the registry edit, and fingers crossed, we'll have no further issues with the network.
