Hi Baraiya,

NT STATUS code 0xC0000205 is:

  Insufficient server memory to perform the requested operation.

So it seems your server is simply low on memory for some reason.

Note that if you are using multiple threads or running something in a
loop, make sure *your* code is not responsible for exhausting the
servers memory!
