Error 2022 and Windows NT Server Service connections

Sometimes the server service cannot keep up with connection requests and
generates Error 2022 in the event log. Windows NT server service has a special
resource task that preallocates connection objects. Under certain conditions,
this task may not be able to keep up with the demand. There are also system
problems that may cause this error message to occur including a severely
fragmented disk. It or anything that prevents the computer from responding
quickly. NT preallocated :

Key: System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters

Name: MaxFreeConnections

Name: MinFreeConnections
Name: MaxWorkItems

can be set to a maximum of 100 (decimal), MinFreeConnections can be set to a maximum of 32 (decimal),
and MaxWorkItems can be set to a maximum of 512

If you get the Error 2022s after you share a Gateway
Service for NetWare
(GSNW) session, try setting MaxFreeConnections=8 and MaxWorkItems=255. If error 2022s continue to happen, increase
the MaxWorkItems value. Unfortunately the PC has to be
rebooted for this registry hack to take effect.
