Good afternoon all,

One this lovely Monday morning our external DNS server decided to cause havic. The website that we host can not be reach from either External or Internal Clients. This is the error message you get when you try to connect to the website externally:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server error '80004005'

[DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Connect()).]SQL Server does not exist or access denied.

/includes/global_functions.asp, line 47

This is what I have done:
1) restarted IIS
2) server has been rebooted
3) check IIS config website request are going to the right IP

The real odd thing is SQl is not installed on that server. And as far as we know there is not connection to a SQL server.
