Server - 2504


Description »
The server could not bind to the transport \Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{E8F639B8-9C12-47D0-8597-28ED5BE0C84C}.
Data formatted as » WORDS
0000: 000005aa 

This event means that the Server service could not bind to the interface with the specified GUID. You should be able to find which interface this is by looking in the registry at sub-keys of HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkCards.

The data section comes heavilty into play in working out what the problem is with this event. In this example, it shows a value of 5aa. In decimal this is 1450, and is defined in winerror.h as "Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service".

If you are seeing this event on Windows XP, and you are getting an incomplete list of network locations under My Network Places, take a look at MS KB314872, which directs you to install File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks.
