Copying large files in Windows 2003 resulting in Error 1450

Sometimes, when you have to copy a very large file for example a DB backup which is over 60GBytes you may encounter an error stating:

Operating system error 1450 Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service.

or

ERROR 1130: Not enough server storage is available to process this command.

ERROR 1130 / hex 0x46a ERROR_NOT_ENOUGH_SERVER_MEMORY

Backup or restore operation terminating abnormally.

Microsoft KB describing this issue is here.

In our case following steps described in Registry fix 1 solved the issue.

Fix consists of adding DWORD value named PoolUsageMaximum a and setting the value to 60 as initial one. Unfortunately server restart is required after adding this, so keep this in mind.

Above fix did the job. I have tested it with Robocopy.exe and Richcopy with logging enabled and all seems to be working fine.

About the Author:

I am passionate about Systems Administration. I like to face new challenges and test new environments.Windows and Linux Debian boxes (both physical and virtual) are my favourites. I like solving problems related to Windows Server roles and services as well as Linux but some distributions in particular. I'm not considering myself as Linux master but surely, I always do my best to fit the needs. On the other hand I consider myself as a Windows Server Professional and in terms of WS and Windows Desktops I always follow best practices, good advices and opinions from other admins.
