    More often than not Reason 0 is an incorrect mapping in your Connect.ini

    Hardly the fault of SIMS.

    Reason 0 can also be incorrect password or network drive not present - is your connect.ini pointing to the right drive? Do your workstations have the right drives mapped?

    I've also known reason 0 to be the SQL service stopped. I think overall reason 0 is 'can not connect to database' for any of the reasons above.

    when you say you keep getting it, is it all the time? only recently? since you did something e.g. upgrade or reboot? is it certain machines?

    can you log in on the server?

    I believe reason 0 can also mean no printer is installed.

    Just reinstall it on that workstation, I gave up trying diagnose anything beyond the s drive not being mapped.

    Moving this thread to the MIS forum as it's a SIMS problem... and retitling too.

    There are so many issues that cause Reason 0.

    Incorrect connect.ini, problems with mapped network drives, database not upgraded successfully, SQL Services issue, there is something wrong with the users login... to list a few.

    We had the same error after we upgrade SQL from 2005 to 2008.
    I changed the conect.ini file to look at <SERVER IP ADDRESS>\SIMS2008 instead of <SERVER IP ADDRESS>\SIMS2005

    Hope this helps.

    There are 9 possible fixes for Reason 0. These are due to:
    1. Incorrect setup of SQL
    2. Incorrect connection file
    3. Unfinished upgrade (indicated)
    4. Incorrect setup of SQL
    5. Insufficient disk space
    6. Firewall
    7. SQL not running
    8. TCP/IP problems
    9. SQL connection.
