Issue with Biztalk 2006 talking to one of our SQL boxes

Hi All

I am getting lots of 5740 & 5743 logged in the app log of our Biztalk Server.

The adapter "SQL" raised an error message. Details "[DBNETLIB][ConnectionWrite (send()).]General network error. Check your network documentation.".

The adapter failed to transmit message going to send port "SQL-DeriveItemCode" with URL "SQL://1**SQL4/pepsibilling/". It will be retransmitted after the retry interval specified for this Send Port. Details:"[DBNETLIB][ConnectionWrite (send()).]General network error. Check your network documentation.".


Basically the queues build up and the transactions eventually get through.

I have searched high and low and found a MS KB that I thoguth was related but ot hasn't made any difference.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/961180

Anyway it could well be our SQL box in question. The box is win2k3 Ent SP1 (SQL 2000 Ent SP4)

Any suggestions would be great.

Thanks

Arm

Check for network related errors in the Biztalk server's event logs, in the SQL 2000 error logs, and in that servers event logs also. This will give you more of a picture as to the state of the network.

Hi Simon

Thanks for coming back to me, There is nothing related in the SQL 2000 boxes event logs which leads me to think its a biztalk server issue.

I have been monitoring networking, no packet loss between servers, plenty of bandwidth.

Thanks Arm

Wow, super-cryptic. Well done Arm.
What backlog value did you set the registry to? Sounds like a good reason to upgrade from SQL2000 also.
