    This one have been baffling me for a while now. I have an access database with a front end backend configuration (nothing fancy). I employees open the front end which shows the available jobs. No problem. Here's the problem. If they are in the office and open the database they can see all of the jobs. If they are remote and logged into terminal (win2k8 r2 standard) not all of the jobs show until I reboot the server. then everything works correct for a few weeks. After a few weeks, not all of the records show in the database and I have to reboot the terminal server again.

    Additional notes. My network is as follows. mask gateway Terminal server is the same network and subnet but the gateway is .7 because it's on a different internet connection.

    Thank you in advance. this has been bugging me for a while now.

    Hello jamesb2,

    Admittedly, I have not encountered this particular challenge; however, if I put on the old incident response hat (stress on old) :) , this has the feel of a service/program related memory issue, possibly a connection state issue, or a host of shall we say "other opportunities."

    Personally, if high-availability is not required, I would circumvent the issue by setting up an established weekly maintenance window and recycle the affected services through an automated script, or even a weekly reboot of the affected server (not a bad idea for MS based OS platforms anyways). ;)

    Unless someone else has encountered the same, or very similar, issue; it may require a much bigger project of monitoring services, logging, memory allocations, connection states, etc. in order to track down the root cause. It definitely does not hurt to ask though, the next person to respond may have a solution for you.

    Best of Luck,
