For some time, I've been receiving the same message in my nv.log file -
here's a sampling:
02/19/99 07:08:04 [trapd] an application has disconnected.
02/19/99 07:49:02 [trapd] Trapd: (initODBC) Information from attempt to
connect to database: 00000 02/19/99 07:49:02 [trapd] 1. (00000)
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Changed database context to
'master'. 02/19/99 07:49:02 [trapd] 2. (01000) [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server
Driver][SQL Server]Changed language setting to 'us_english'. 02/19/99
07:49:02 [trapd] 3. (01000) [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL
Server]Changed database context to 'NetViewDb'.
This message was appearing approx. once every hour....all day and week long.
The help files address the issue of netview disconnecting from the sql
database as being most likely an odbc problem. After multiple attempts at
fixing the problem, I gave up and took the lazy man's out - thoroughly blow
away the server, re-install NT 4.0/sp3, sql server 6.5 and netview 5.1. I
assumed the box was as odbc-"clean" as it would ever be, but yesterday's
re-appearance of this message seems to say otherwise.
In addition, prior to yesterday's re-install, netmon would periodically
cease functioning (i.e., no polling/discovery occuring), without the daemon
actually dying (showing a "stopped" message in the server setup.)
Physically restarting all daemons would suffice in correcting the problem.
Question: is an hourly disconnect message perhaps normal? What, in fact, is
going here? For those who have seen this message before, how have you
handled it (if at all)? Many thanks from a netview/nt (relative) newbie,
