Error while querying Win32_OperatingSystem FreePhysicalMemory RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys...

    I've found this script to show free ram on a server:

     ' Memory.vbs
    ' Sample VBScript to discover how much RAM in computer
    ' Author Guy Thomas http://computerperformance.co.uk/
    ' Version 1.3 - August 2010
    ' -------------------------------------------------------'
    Option Explicit
    Dim objWMIService, objComputer, colComputer
    Dim strLogonUser, strComputer

    strComputer = "."

    Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
    & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" _
    & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
    Set colComputer = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
    ("Select * from Win32_ComputerSystem")

    For Each objComputer in colComputer
    Wscript.Echo "System Name: " & objComputer.Name _
    & vbCr & "Total RAM " & objComputer.TotalPhysicalMemory
    Next

    WScript.Quit

    ' End of free example of Memory WMI / VBScript

    I've tested and works great on all my servers with the exception of 1.

    Any ideas why is not working?

    This is the error:

    Windows Script Host

    Script: C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\memory.vbs
    Line : 18
    Char : 1
    Error : The paging file is too small for this operation to complete.
    Code : 800705AF
    Source : (null)

    Thanks so much and i hope to fix this soon :)

    Greetings.

    Francisco.

  • The error message tells you what's wrong: The paging file is too small for this operation to complete.

  • Hi!...

    Quick question...

    I've been reading about that error and it has to do with the free disk space on my server or ram.

    I have 80gb free and 16gb free of ram.

    With this patch, i would be able to run the vbs?.

    Thanks for your support :)

    As long as you are running 2008 R2 SP1 you already have this fix in place.

  • Hi!...

    We don't have SP1 installed :(

    Thanks

    Thanks


    Okay, then that hotfix does apply and you can try it out.

  • Actually those servers are on a production enviroment and it's a lot complicated to install patches without testing them first.

    Any other way?

    Thanks.!

    Since it's a memory leak, the almighty magical reboot should fix the issue (for a while at least). I know that's not really a good solution for a production server either though...

    Haahahahah... I thought that too hahaha. In fact, we are waiting for a reboot for 6 months now to complete an installation of a backup software haha.

    Thanks!
