    I have been receiving the following error message "Not enough storage is available to process this command", although the error message indicates that it is a storage issue, it doesn't seem to be, would you please let me know what the possible cause is?

    Thank you in advance!

    Pasting the error into google yields this as the first hit: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/106167/error-message-not-enough-server-storage-is-available-to-process-this-c
    It seems to be a Windows error, not SQL.

    Thank you for your reply! The problem occurs when trying to open programs on the server e.g. SSMS, Event Viewer etc.

    So you are accessing the server via RDP?

    You might also want to check your MAX RAM configuration for SQL Server, and be sure you didn't use all RAM on the box, because otherwise the operating system won't have enough to function.

    Yup. I've always seen this be due to low memory issues. Could be other things but that's what I've seen.
