IRPStackSize Is Too Small For The Server To Use A Local Device

This alert condition indicates that the IRPStackSize is too small for a server to use a local device. The server is configured with too many file system filter drivers (for example, Quota and Anti-virus) and/or too many devices. The irpstacksize parameter may be set to less than the default of 15 stack frames. The irpstacksize represents the number of kernel modules that can store information in the I/O Request Packet (IRP). The IRP is used to track I/O requests in the kernel.
