I received this error when the server had run out of space for the registry. To fix the problem, I increased the size of the registry.
Same error seen when a person has remapped C: to another drive during the Citrix Metaframe installation. There is a specific Microsoft and Citrix article mentioning the problem. Specifically the COM+ components are looking for the C: drive when they drive itself has has been remapped using the remapdrv utility. Microsoft ME263900
article outlines the issue. See also a suggested fix from Citrix (article CTX240747
Error: "\crmrecoveryclerkobj.cpp(1149), hr = 80070003: GetVolumeInformation" - During a citrix drive remap, the tool "fixes" references in the Registry where C: -> M: but it does not properly reconfigure COM+ settings. See CTX457309
Error: ".\crmrecoveryclerkobj.cpp(1149), hr = 80070003: GetVolumeInformation". This error occurs when the installing Citrix Metaframe XP FR2 under the following conditions:
- Citrix server is a member server of an AD domain
- Drive Remap feature run before installing Citrix Metaframe XP
- Drive remap feature appears to freeze up halfway through process
- User ends task, reboots server and assumes the process worked successfully as drives actually do show up as being remapped
- User then attempts to install Metaframe XP/FR2
- Halfway through install, an error message pops up on screen and the above entry is logged in the Event log.
Problem is due to drive remap not successfully working causing registry keys for COM object information not to be changed. This generates an error on the Metaframe install. The problem is actually a bug in the drive remap utility, Citrix have released a hotfix for it. The solution is to either set the server to be part of a workgroup and then run drive remap utility OR, download hotfix from Citrix web site.
