This is going to sound a little strange, but are you sure it wasn't a
problem with too many logins into the db? I only ask because that happened
to me this morning--it said there were 15 logins and the only thing
accessing the db at the time was Radius! I had to stop Radius and
MSSQLServer, then restart them before I was able to get back into Emerald,
ISQL/w. The weird thing thing was that our web-based IDC script was
pulling information on current callers as if there was nothing wrong.
