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 :

Hive: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Key: System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters

Name: MaxFreeConnections

Type: REG_DWORD
Name: MinFreeConnections
Type: REG_DWORD
Name: MaxWorkItems
Type: REG_DWORD

MaxFreeConnections
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
(decimal).

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.
