I encountered a problem when connecting to Server 1. The error message is “Connection Timeout Expired. The timeout period elapsed while attempting to consume the pre-login handshake acknowledgement. This could be because the pre-login handshake failed or the server was unable to respond back in time.”
I think the cause is in the server, because I can connect to server 2 which has similar environment to server 1 but Active Directory uninstalled. Does anyone know how to solve it? Thanks.
Client: Win 7 Pro SP1 64-bit / ToadSS 22.214.171.1241
Server 1: Win Server 2003 SP2/ SQL Server 2000 / Active Directory installed.
Server 2: Win Server 2003 SP2/ SQL Server 2000
