daddycaddy used Ask the Experts™
my computer specs are dual xeon 3.0 with 3 gb ram
i use windows 2003 server standard edition
i use sql 2000 for my application which its an online game
i have serveral dataservers(applications),connectserver,joinserver,event server
i didnt have this problem till now but recently i install sp4 for sql 2000, till now i was using only sp3

One of your processes is probably taking too much time to complete and simply times out on the db server.  To identify you may either:

> use Profiler to catch any non completing processes (You may use Error and Warnings events)
> Increase the timeout of both the server and client and see which process runs too long

Anyway, you best friend is probably profiler...

Hope this helps...
