I have some Selenium test scripts which I'm using to test a Classic ASP web app, but I'm having problems after restoring the database (SQL Server 2005) with a backup file before every test is run. Immediately after the successful RESTORE (from a Python script running sqlcmd ...) when the ASP tries to connect to the db I get the following error...
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][DBNETLIB]ConnectionWrite (send()).,,,Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC
This is being generated by ADODB using this connection string...
But trying to connect from a C++ ActiveX object via ODBC also fails with the same error.
Restarting IIS gets things back to normal. And SQL Server 2008 exhibits the same issue.
Does anyone have any idea why I can't connect to the database after a RESTORE?
