Hello everyone and thank you for your help:
Background: Have a SQL 2005 64bit with one instance with three databases (A,B,C). This is connected to a MS cluster using Windows 2003R2 64 bit SP3. The cluster was at SP and we were getting timeout errors running jobs from database A to B. It was recommended to upgrade to SP3 which we did. Now we get timeout errors from A to B and B to C when running jobs.
