Whilst developing applications on our Intranet server, we occasionally kill all ODBC connections on it (bad code!).  Is there a way to restore  this without re-booting the server.

when you say kill obdc connections , do you mean individual users connections created in asp

i.e.

con.Open "your_dsn"

getting killed off

No, unfortunately when we lose connections, it applies to all users and all pages on the server.

if your messing with your global.asa then every time you re-save it it will kill all sessions and restart the application . now if you connections are held as sessions you would get what your experiencing.

if the interaction with your asp is dependendent on sessions dont mess with the global.asa on a live site, cos youll keep killing users sessions.

ff_axel..   Sometimes I experience the same problem. Something goes wrong with the page and the application is unable to process ASP pages.  

I have tried unloading the application from ISM, and I have never been able to make it work. since this application is running on its own separate memory space, my server is fine, but the only way I have been able to restart this application is by rebooting the server.
So Experts...
Just exactly how are you supposed to restart an application gone bad?

You have two routes to take here.  The first one works 80% of the time (depending on your specific problem), and the other one works 99.9% of the time.

From the command line type:
> net stop iisadmin
> net start w3svc

Now, if that returns an error on the first line you need a utility provided on the NT Resource Kit CD (probably
downloadable too), called "kill.exe".  

Then you'll want to type:
> kill inetinfo.exe
> net start w3svc

If you need help locating kill.exe let me know.
