We have been having some strange advantage errors lately. We connect to
ADS through PHP (apache's mod_php), Delphi and Java (at the same time).
Each application connects to more than one server at once (serverA and
These are the problems we are experiencing:
1) Many "10054" errors in the ADS error log.
2) "7041" errors in the ADS error log on the wrong server.
3) "7041" errors returned to the client when the file exists (somehow
the query is sent to the wrong server; See problem 2). This only happens
4) Drastic DB slowdown. The worker threads on the server are pegged, but
there is very little CPU usage.
5) Extremely high counts of "Packet owner not connected" in the ADS
management interface (communication statistics).
The "Packet owner not connected" count doesn't seem to be related to the
load we put on the server. It seems to increment even when we're hardly
doing anything on the server. What does this mean?
The other problems all seem to happen at once, and we're not sure if the
problem has to do with our Apache/PHP installation or if it's something
odd with our network. We are NOT using the newest version of PHP_ADS
because we have to connect to an older 6.x server as well as 7.x servers.
What suggestions do you have that we can use to further isolate the problem?

I suggest you contact support with this problem. This problem sounds like
it is going to be difficult enough to work out without a day delay between
our posts on this new group.
