Giveaway Of The Day

Jul 282008

One of the latest issues I ran accross was recieving an error while copying large files on Windows Server 2003.  I was trying to migrate a server that had several large files that were greater then 75 GB.  When I performed the file copy on the first large file I would recieve an error saying insuficent memory to perform the operation.  At the time I was using a strait forward windows copy.  I thought that might be causing the issue so I also tried to copy the file using robocopy and recieved the same error.  The kicker was that the error would happen at the 80% mark.  So it was very time consuming to recreate the error.  In troubleshooting the error I ran accross KB article 312362 that describe system paged pool memory.  After backing up the registry I performed the resolution step by step and set the PoolUsageMaximum to 60.  After rebooting the server I was in buisness and could copy files larger then 75 GB.
