Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm trying to do Remote Administration of IIS in C#.NET using System.Web.Administration tools. Everything works fine on a test server (windows 2008), however when I try using our live server (windows 2003) it fails giving the message:

System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException : Not enough storage is available to process this command. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070008)

The server itself has plenty of memory free, so I believe this is some kind of memory limit with the RPC itself.


Is there any way around this?

Have you tried doing what the KB article suggested? –  Michael Hampton Sep 12 '12 at 9:39
The article suggests to either "Split objects between multiple processes" or "Reduce the number of interfaces that are called between one process and another". I'm not sure that's possible with what I'm trying to do. I'm opening up a connection to a remote ServerManager, performing a few operations, then saving. –  Hainesy Sep 12 '12 at 13:32
