Thanks for your posting. From SQL side we do not have any know issues. I
also fail to understand how SQL SP2 would break NAT.
Let's first check the basics.
- Start with a Windows 2000 server without SQL SP2 that works. Test the
- Reboot your Windows 2000 Server.
- Stop all the non-default services (list of default services listed on
Q192710 link found bellow)
- Close all applications, including anti-virus.
- The ONLY thing to do after a clean start, is install SQL Server 2000 SP2
and then reboot the Windows 2000 server again.
Do you still experience that behavior?
Q192710 INF: Basic Guidelines for Installing SQL Server 6.5 or 7.0
If this does not resolve the behavior, and you would like to pursue this
issue, please open a case with Microsoft Product Support Services (PSS).
