red

The Server Message Block (SMB) protocol is what Windows uses to share files, printers, serial ports, and communicate this information between computers. The service must be configured correctly for the server to properly manage shared resources.

Event Details

Product: Windows Operating System
ID: 2022
Source: Server
Version: 6.0
Symbolic Name: EVENT_SRV_NO_FREE_CONNECTIONS
Message: The server was unable to find a free connection %2 times in the last %3 seconds. This indicates a spike in network traffic. If this is happening frequently, you should consider increasing the minimum number of free connections to add headroom. To do that, modify the MinFreeConnections and MaxFreeConnections for the LanmanServer in the registry.

Resolve

Modify the MinFreeConnections and MaxFreeConnections parameters

If the server is frequently unable to find a free connection, you should consider increasing the minimum and maximum number of free connections to the server.

To increase MinFreeConnections and MaxFreeConnections for the server:

  1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
  2. Locate and then click to select the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Lanmanserver\Parameters
  3. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
