SQL 2000 DTS Unable to connect  Error 7312

We have a few Data Transformation Services (DTSs) that transfer files/tables from one SQL server to another or create a backup for those files/tables into a different database located within the same server. One of the servers is a SQL server 2000 and the other is 2005.

This error took place on the server with SQL Server 2000.

These DTSs has been working fine for a long time, but today I received this error and I can not locate a solution. Any idea what might have caused it?

Which one is the origin of the error ? Better to be using SSIS in sql2005 and the latest ODBC drivers. The other way around will not work of course... SQL 2000 cannot manage the 2005 database environment, but MSDASQL does sound like the 2000, and really should be using SQLNCLI ie the newer native client - MDAC has been depricated...

Have a look at 2005 Books on-line http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms131035(SQL.90).aspx
If you look at the left hand side, you will see a lot of discussion topics on SQL native client, and if you search for MDAC in Books on-line, there are more discussions. That much commentary in itself says "listen up"...

Now, the other age old problem you can get is the confusion and connect corrptions betwen 32 bit and 64 bit - depending on how, when, and where you are running the DTS packages. Are you a 64-bit site ?

Thanks CS and Mark for your time.
Apparently it was a hardware connectivity issue which needed an immediate attention and once the DTS re-gained connecttion it worked fine.
