We have a site that has been working properly for years, including this morning.  The uses ASP and ODBC to connect to an MS Access .mdb file.  (There is no Access instance running, just the .mdb). Running on an NT4 box.

Late this morning, sending a query (via web page button click) produced the following message:

Server object error 'ASP 0177 : 800706ba'
Server.CreateObject Failed
/uwsom/content/sched_year_asp.inc, line 47
The RPC server is unavailable.

In the code (that I didn't write), line 47 is:
Set Conn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")

Any ideas?

Thanks

Update your windows. Your RPC service is hunging.

That solution doesn't work for us.  Why would the RPC service suddenly break?

When server is connected to internet, some kind of worm stops your service. Try firewall.

But you should restart you server so that it can operate again.

Also your RPC Server may have ran out of resources. If you have lately using your server more that before, consider some  hardware upgrade.
