Disk Quota CSE processed with errors

Updated: March 2, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

This error indicates that the Disk Quota Group Policy client-side extension (CSE) has failed to apply Group Policy settings to one or more volumes on the target computer.


This could be caused by one of the following issues:

  • Unable to open a registry key containing the Group Policy information.

  • Unable to create the class factory object for ProgID "Microsoft.DiskQuota.1".

  • Unable to instantiate the "quota control" object; ProgID "Microsoft.DiskQuota.1".

  • Unable to obtain the list of disk drives on the target computer.

  • Unable to apply quota settings to a volume on the target computer.

  • Insufficient memory to perform an operation.

The following event numbers with a source of DiskQuota can trigger this alert:

  • 1

  • 2

  • 3

  • 4

  • 5

  • 6

  • 7

  • 8


To troubleshoot this problem, try one or all of the following:

  • Review the Event Viewer for events logged by the Disk Quota client-side extension and use the information in the event description to troubleshoot the problem.

  • If the event description indicates that a class factory or quota object could not be created, perform the following tasks:

    • Check for the existence of the file "%SystemRoot%\system32\dskquota.dll"

    • Re-register dskquota.dll using regsvr32.exe

  • An event description that indicates that a list of disk drives on the target computer could not be obtained is created when no logical drive(s) are present on the target computer.

  • In cases other than these, Disk Quota failure is usually caused by low memory conditions on the target computer.
