workstatin seems to lost ocasionnally communication with windows 2003 server
Posted on 2007-10-17
I have an accouting application that is programmed with delphi
All my workstations ar xp pro with all updates, all computers have been changed for brand new ones, they all have a ups, server is windows 2003 small businesss on a real server, with a ups too, switches are protected wit ups, cabling is all brand new utp8 level 6, protocol is tcp/ip.
The server is only a file server, the applicatio is not in client/server mode, this a proved working software in this environment. This app. is database based (.dbf) and som files stay opens for a long time,
Sometimes the applicatio crash with errors like: 7010, Error 7010: Problem with Advantage server file read.
this to more frequent, sometimes i get: an error 8010 but rarely.
this happens when filling a long order or invoice int the software, and during this time ther some files that are continuously accessed, and a short brake in the communication seems to produce.
I can re-access the data immediatly after getting this message, so if it is a connection lost, it seems very short.
This problem was there whe a workstation was used as file server, and there was many old computers.
we renew allt the stock and lan topology to get rid of but without success.
