Losing LDAP connections intermittently

I keep losing connection with the LDAP server from my Jive Messenger Server? This was working fine a while back but after i installed Windows 2003 updates recently this started happening? All my users get kicked out because of this.

Has anyone else faced the same issue?

Regards

Samad

I noticed this happening only after i installed Windows 2003 SP1. Has anyone else experienced the same?

I tried uninstalling SP1 and everything started working fine.

Thanks
