When you try to view files on a network share after a few hours of using your Windows NT 4.0-based computer, you may receive the following error message:
You may receive the following event in the system event log:
With the 11th DWORD at 0x28 equal to 0x3e9 (SRV_TABLE_FILE). This indicates that no more file IDs (FIDs) can be allocated to process the various open file server message blocks (SMBs) because of a shortage of available FIDs.
This behavior can occur if a third-party program has leaked memory and/or resources.
NOTE: One such program is Acrobat Distiller (Distasst.exe) version 3.0 which is part of Acrobat Exchange.
To work around this issue, end the offending task.
