We have a Windows 2003 Server running MS SQL 2000 SP3. We have a 3rd party application that uses the DB Library which has been connecting OK for about 1yr, then last month it started to not connect.
We could re-start the app 3 or 4 times and it would eventually connect.
Nothing has been added to the server except the usaul MS Windows patches etc..
I've since written a simple DB Library app which connects into the same system/database and like the other one it sometimes won't connect. It outputs the following SQL error:
"DB-Library Error 10001: NULL DBPROCESS pointer encountered."
Any ideas gratefully received
