Cause:
Caused by lack of resources on the Windows server.
Resolution:
The problem appears to be caused by lack of resources on the Windows server rather than any issues with Identity Governance.

The message "No buffer space available (maximum connections reached?)" usually indicates that there are no enough ports available.
