Event ID 2017 from Source SRV

I recently upgraded my family’s network to gigabit ethernet. We started noticing that some shares would become inaccessible, and that restarting the Windows 7 server would solve the issue. I poked around the event viewer and found a few event ID 2017s from source srv, so I googled and found the following registry settings that should solve the issue:

Set HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\LargeSystemCache to 1.

Set HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters\Size to 3.

Thanks to alan.lamielle.net for this useful information.

Update 1-28-14: The server has been running well for a year and a half with no issues.






Local Security Authority Cannot Be Contacted

Just found this out today: when trying to use Remote Desktop to connect to a Windows 7 Professional x64 workstation, the Remote Desktop app will return an error if the user you’re trying to log in as doesn’t have a password.

In today’s computing environment I would not recommend not using a password for any account. This is a new box I’m building that is currently sitting on the floor. To make things easier for myself, I enabled Remote Desktop so I can install apps comfortably from my own workstation.
