Unable to connect to Windows 7 file share

While trying to connect to Windows 7 machine (from Mac or PC) over the network I was constantly receving messages:"Unable to connect"

On "server" machine I noticed following error in event viewer:
Soruce: Srv
Event Id:2017
"The server was unable to allocate from the system nonpaged pool because the server reached the configured limit for nonpaged pool allocations."

The server was unable to allocate from the system nonpaged pool because the pool was empty.


Problem occurs when multiple computers are trying to connect to one Windows 7 "server" machine. Do following procedure:


Set the following registry key to ’1':

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\LargeSystemCache

and set the following registry key to ’3':

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters\Size

Restart computer or just "Server" service, fixed! :)
