Fix DBNETLIB General Network Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a friend at another company that is getting this error:

    03/07/2007 16:03:49  Version 21.00.69 - UID - xxx - Error -2147467259 - [DBNETLIB][ConnectionWrite (send()).]General network error. Check your network documentation.

    I have checked around and found two potential fixes for this problem.  The first one describes this as a problem specific to the Named Pipes protocol.  The fix is listed as available from this site:;en-us;827452

    The second fix is listed as making an additional entry to the registry like this:

    The problem arises on a busy SQL system and some requests will randomly seem
    to be dropped with a General Network Error.

    To fix:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Tcpip\Parameters
    Add a new DWORD key SynAttackProtect with value of 0. Restart server.

    Can someone tell me if either or both of these approaches is correct?
