ODBC Connection


   I really need help.  I have an SQL ODBC connection.  Everytime I do a windows update, i lose my ODBC connection.  Please help.


RE: ODBC Connection

Every time you update what? What does the ODBC connect to?

RE: ODBC Connection


Everytime there is a "Windows Update", my SQL ODBC gets disconnected.

RE: ODBC Connection

Sorry but still in the dark here. You are installing Windows Updates, and your connecton to MS SQL Server is lost? Have you tried exiting Enterprise Manager and closing all open applications while installing the updates?
Or maybe you mean that the updates somehow cause all your DSNs to delete themselves?

Everytime Windows 2003 need to do an update (critical updates, etc), my SQL ODBC gets disconnected.

Please help.
