This problem is driving me mad. I use Vista Home Premium 64 on my main workstation. I have a collection(6 machines) of xp64 and vista 64HP rendernodes. I am finding that some of the nodes stop getting access to my workstation HD and as a result can no longer contribute to any network rendering.
I know this is somehow related to the 10 node connection limit of windows, but I don’t see how this problem arises fairly randomly and with only six rendernodes. I am running backburner server and Vray DR spawner both as services with specified usernames (same username for all nodes).
In my event viewer I am getting system errors 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.” and Event ID 2021 “The server was unable to allocate a work item 2 times in the last 60 seconds.”
I have also tried the various fixes online that reputedly increase the TCP/IP limit of a vista machine, but none seem to have worked.
Does anyone know of a fix?
Also, once the node gets denied access by my workstation, I have to reboot the workstation to re-instate a working connection. Is there a service that I could restart on my workstation to fix the problem to avoid me having to reboot?
