...Server to server = Server client to server?
For a server to server connection, is the connecting server considered
as a client of the accepting server or is it not?
I have the following classes:
Connection <--- base class of the following two
ClientConnection <--- client
ServerConnection <--- server
ServerClientConnection <--- server as a client of another server.
But then I came across something that states "A client is anything
connected to a server that is not another client".
Just remember! Server ( programm ) is always listening a connections!!!

Exactly when do you get this error? And do you have a cluster in the first
I have not run that many upgrades (if any at all) to SQL 2005, but do you
really select which *database* to upgrade? The upgrade is per instance,
as far as I know.
In any case, it may be simpler to install a new server instance rather
than upgrading, not the least on a cluster.

I have downloaded the MS SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Evaluation edition, and
the MS SQL 2000 Server JDBC driver.
I have installed and configured the MS SQL Server 2000 onto two computers,
which reside on the same network. (In fact, these two computers comprise
the entire network).
The network server (computer name=SUNCDS1), and the lone node (SUNCDS2),
each have their own SQL Server 2000 instance.
The SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Manager console on SUNCDS1 shows both SQL
Server instances, the (local) instance, which is SUNCDS1, and also SUNCDS2.
It may be worthwhile to mention that the SUNCDS2 instance on the Enterprise
console does not show the SQL Server Agent as being started, but I can
navigate to the SUNCDS2 databases, and display the table information. If I
try to start the SQL Server Agent for SUNCDS2, I receive the message "Access
is Denied". The enterprise console on the SUNCDS2 machine indeed shows the
SQL Server Agent as being started.
I have written a sample Java application that uses both the MS SQL Server
ODBC driver and a JDBC type 4 driver (MS SQL Server 2000 JDBC) to establish
a connection to the SUNCDS2 instance. This application resides on the
SUNCDS1 network server. The ODBC driver will connect to SUNCDS2 instance
wihout a problem.
The JDBC driver does not connect to SUNCDS2. The JDBC driver will, however,
connect to the local SQL Server instance that resides on SUNCDS1.

You either serve the Access "front end" as a terminal server published
application or you just stick an Access "back end" on it in which case the
server is nothing more than a file server. Which are you talking about?
Certainly in the case of the latter the added load would be minimal. If you
plan on installing Access on the server and running Access apps from the server
then the added load would be significant as your number of users climb.

Being a bit of a SQL Server novice, need some advice with the following
Server A and Server B have SQLServer 2000 based databases. The vendor
of the application/system has implemented their own replication process
to ensure the 2 databases are in sync. However, there is no clustering
with virtual IP addresses implemented. So to an external client/db, it
is 2 identical databases with the same name on 2 distinct servers.
We need to develop an application that will reside on a networked
server C and with SQLServer 2000 as well. While most of the tables in
this database are self contained, around 10 tables will have to be
mirror copies of the same tables from either Server A or Server B.
Question, how do we implement subscription based replication on top of
a redundant database, when no clustering is implemented? So, in
essence, when Server A is alive, the database on Server C will
periodically (or on change) replicate the 10 tables from Server A. When
Server A is not alive, it needs to do same from server B. (When both
server A and B are alive, it is acceptable to get data from either,
since they are synchronized internally).
Any alternate suggestions on achieving this functionality are welcome
too. If SQL Server 2005 has some capabilities that may address this
problem, that is a consideration as well.
Pls take a look at Alternate Synchronization Partners in merge replication.

I have a very frustrating problem. I have a situation that works fine

and Access 2003 loaded on 4 computers. I have set up a "Linked
Server" in SQL Server linked to my Access database. I am running
queries on t-SQL against the Access tables through the linked server.
On all of the computers, I can do select queries and they all work
great but what I need to do is run Update, Insert, Delete queries as
well. On a couple of the computers, it works fine, locally and across
the LAN, and a VPN as far as that goes. But on other computers I can
do Select queries (also across the network) but no update queries. I

You can run SQL Server on some *very* minimal equipment, but remember
that you get what you pay for. Running SQL on a under-powered machine
works, but you loose time as the employees wait for it to respond.
Think of it as owning a high performance car (Lamborghini, Porsche,
Ferrari, etc.) as your desktop machine. It will seem like quite a
waste if the only place you have to run it (the server) is on city

useful for publishing your documents on the web or an intranet site.
CHM is useful if you want a single, compact file containing all your

I am planning to write an application using MS Access as front-end.
User enters records (mostly 15 records or less per user per day) into an
Access database. Having done that, users click a button to transfer
these records to a web server hosting an SQL Server database (set up by
a service provider). Each record represents a job; provider will update
its status when a job is done.
At the end of day, user will open up the database to enquire the records
status, which will be retrieved from the web server (through HTTP protocol)
A service provider will probably have 2000 records/jobs per day, which
will be fetched from the web server to its PC for job scheduling purposes.
Can someone advise me as to how to go about doing this ? I have read a
little on WinInet APIs of MS Visual Studio 6, but I am still not sure;
eg how to get SQL server to send data to client PC using HTTP.

question addressed head-on. I can speculate on three possible answers,
but I'm not sure which one Microsoft intends:
In a Jet-less world,
1) there will be no file server database apps, only database server
2) there will be file server apps implemented somehow with SQL Server.
3) there will be file server apps, but Microsoft will cede this niche
to its competitors; thus, we will use neither Jet nor SQL Server, but
some other product, to implement them.
