A required previlige is not held by the client

The remote shutdown option is always safer option to restart the server. This is ideal option when the server is virtual because when you restart the server from the server itself some times server fails to start up.

Syntax: shutdown -r -f -m MachineName

r - restart
f - force
m - machine

But sometimesThe remote shutdown cannot run sometime due to lack of previliges. We can check the following things
Start --> Run gpedit.msc
Go to
Computer Configuration --> Windows Settings--> Security Settings --> Local Policies --> User Rights Assignment
Double Click on "Shut Down the System"

Check if the following groups are listed

Backup Operators
Power Users

If any of them are missing, add them.

Server Out Of Memory

Server Out of Memory

There is no memory on the server to run your program. Please contact your administrator with this problem.

I have got the above exception when trying to downlaod a large flash file to local drive.which is about 198 MB. After following some blogs and IISRESET on the server caused to get rid of the exception.

Start --> Run --> IISRESET

I believe IISRESET causes to clean up the temporary file storage and also cleans up the application pool which get rids of the Out Of Memory exception and also the server that we had has POC server which is very old.

Please feel free to comment on this post so that i can update this post effectively.
