SQL 2000 not releasing COM+ component
Posted on 2002-04-25
I'm running triggers that instantiate a .NET COM+ object via sp_OACreate, call a method via sp_OAMethod, then release it via sp_OADestroy. Everything works great.
The problem is with deployment. If I want to deploy a new version of the .NET COM+ object - even if the interface is unchanged, I have to restart SQL Server to release the handle on it. sp_OADestory should do that for me, but for some reason, SQL Server still holds onto it. This happens even if I shutdown the object in Component Services.
Any ideas of why this is happening and how to get around it? Thanks.
