This is a brand new installation I am trying to provision the first SSP for MOSS and I keep getting the following error:
(Provisioning failed: A transport-level error has occurred when receiving results from the server. (provider: TCP Provider, error: 0 - The semaphore timeout period has expired.))
The error also keeps appearing in the Application Event Log as event ID 7888.
Google searches tell me its a connection between the Sharepoint server and the SQL server however, this is a production SQL Server which has several databases on it that do not experience any problems. These databases also include the Central Admin and Web Application databases for Sharepoint which are all working fine.
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
