Getting error on Logon Script "insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service" RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a handful of XP SP3 workstations joined to a Win 2003 AD domain that throw host script errors (each user has a logon script) when mapping a printer "objNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\MyPrinteServer\MyPrinter".  The error is: "insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service" Code: 800705AA.

    The rest of the script of course does not run.  It happens intermittently and cannot find anything.  I have been chasing this for a few weeks.  A reboot can fix it but after a while the user logs off then back on and the host script error appears.  Nothing in either the system or app logs.  Anyone have any info on this error?

  • Can you try to map the printer using a different method?

    rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /in /n \\server\printer

  • Thanks for the reply.  Yes, I can and strangely, a reboot or even a logoff and logon and the script will execute without error.  I am still at a lost on why it is happening or how I can find out why.

  • Still haven't solved this.  Anyone have any ideas?  Once in a while we are still getting users log on and get the above error when adding a network printer.  A reboot usually resolves...  I am wondering if we put in a wait value of 20 seconds or so in the script if that will provide enough time for what ever is consuming resources to start.  Problem is that I cannot produce a consistent failure and never know when the next user logon wtill produce the host script error......................
