I have a brand new server - Win Server 2008, SQL Standard 2008 and I am getting alerts being fired for Level 20 Alerts. In the log the entry is
This happens randomly, up to 4 or 5 times a day.
Does anyone have any ideas on what might be the cause, and indeed the resolution, please?
I have checked the NIC driver and it's the manufacturers own, not a generic Windows one.
Pings to the server don't drop any packets at all.
Currently the server is under almost no load as I am still benchmarking, configuring ready to go live next month. I am concerned that this problem will get worse if we go live with it.
I have Googled the error and cant see anyone who has actually applied a fix.[update]
We have updated NIC (Broadcom) drivers and are leaving it 24hours. If it still occurs we will swap to a different port (currently using 1 of 2 on NIC). If it still occurs then we are going to add a PCI NIC from a different manufacturer and see if that has any effect.
Is it a NIC card or onboard? If a card, maybe try reseating it? (although you'd expect ping drops if that was the case......)

are the NICs from Broadcom? We've had issues with the misbehaving in the past. Not this exact error, but they were being strange. We swapped to Intel and everything was fine again.

We were having this issue at one time at previous employers. It was the client application that was using a slightly out of date version of ADO. I'd suggest checking on that first.
