    Event 2019 - "The server was unable to allocate from the system nonpaged pool because the pool was empy" - Can you help me ?

    am the network administrator of a country wide net. with 5 branches. I
    have 2 windows 2003 servers in each branch.

    In the last june, one of my remote DC Server started to show the event
    2019, and then stoped servinng all the network services. We restarted the
    server every 6 hours until reformated.

    Now I start having the same problem in another DC server in other
    branch. I will format it the next weekend.

    I was looking for information about this in the newsgroups and in the
    microsoft support site and I only found something related with macaffe
    Antivirus. We donīt use any macaffe product.

    Do you have any suggestion about that ? Do you know another case like
    this ?

    I am very happy with Windows 2003 & Exchange 2003 BUT I really donīt
    want to reformat the servers every 6 months

    Thanks in advance

    Do you use Norton AV? If so take a look here:

    http://support.microsoft.com/default...s;272568&sd=ee

    If not, you have some sort of kernel driver memory leak. This is especially
    true if this error is accompanied in the System Event Log by Event ID: 2019,
    "The server was unable to allocate from the system nonpaged pool because the
    pool was empty". The memory leak can be identified by using one of the two
    following methods:

    Method #1 (easy):
    Open Task Manager, and under

    View->Select Columns

    choose Virtual Memory Size.

    Click on the column header to sort by VM usage. If the application isn't
    freeing memory, this value will continue climbing until the system exhausts
    the available memory, which causes the System Process - Out of Virtual
    Memory dialog. Also look at Task Manager Processes > Mem Delta. A
    consistently positive value here also indicates a memory leak. The only way
    to free the memory would be to kill the process.

    Method #2 (harder):
    Obtain PMON from the Resource Kit then read this article:
    How to Use PMON to Troubleshoot Kernel Mode Memory Leaks [Q177415]
    http://support.microsoft.com/default...;EN-US;q177415

    Memtriage from windows 2003 resource kit may help to find the leak:

    ------------------------

    If you wish to conduct none of the above tests, then simply update all
    drivers on the system, starting with the NIC drivers. Reports I have seen
    in the field indicate using the latest Intel NIC drivers fixed this problem.

    I have also seen a confirmed report in the field which stated that
    unisntalling Promise Array Managment software resolved the problem. The
    version of PAM was 3.2.1 Build 13.

    And see if maybe the crypserve.exe proces is running and try stopping it.
