Subject Strange connection problem
Author Tim
Hi all,

we have a very strange problem. We have two machines (A and B) with
the DB server running on A. We are running IB 6. This is running very
well on numerous other sites, so we doubt whether the problem has
anything to do with IB per se (rather than FB). Each machine in
running Windows XP SP 2 with hyper threading disabled.

When machine A is rebooted, machine B loses the DB connection. All
well and good, and to be expected. However - even when we wait for 4
or 5 minutes after the server has re - started, and then re - start
the application (on machine B) that uses IB, the connection still
fails - repeatedly. (There is a software loop that tries repeatedly
to re - connect or allows the user to exit)

However, it does - after several re - tries - eventually connect.
Once it IS connected, there's no problem.

Is this something to do with IB Guardian or with IB itself? What are
we missing? How could we check or do some kind of diagnostics?

In more than a little desperation,
