SQL error 233 SQLState 08001 SQL Server error 17

Hello,

We have a new 2003 server with SQL server 2005 on it.
About 3 times a day the local clients get a error from the sql server.

Connection failed
SQL State 01000
SQL Server error: 233

Connection failed
SQL State 08001
SQL Server error: 17
Server does not exist or access denied.

People who are working remotly with remotedesktop do not have the problem.
With the old server there we're no network problems

How do you mean?

If its a periodic problem where you cant gain access could be the ip addresses are refreshing their licenses.

However on further inspection would it be likely you are connecting to the database via odbc? if so i would consider using sql native client as odbc seems to have this intermittent drop off. bypass the odbc and straight into sql and you wont have this trouble.

Would it be better if i use fixed ipadressen on the 2 clients?
The softwareprogram uses odbc. I don't want to change that because the manufacterer of the program
has installed it that way.

Then if you can move over to static ips for all clients snd increase the lease length of the ips it may help you out. if the clients are turned off at any time on the machiens themselves.

then you shoudl put the reservation on your dhcp server as opposed to  on the machiens themselves let me knwo if you are unsure how to do this
