    i am running the profiler on a remote machine and is this error due to network traffic or some mishandled errror on profiler ?

    I also suggest you to run the profile for this server from other machine to isolate the problem.

    I am also posting my query related to profiler for SQL7. How can i trace the host name thru profiler for MSSQL version 7. This can be easily done in SQL2K by selecting the data column as hostname. I am using extended stored procedure for this trace in SQL7.

    Shreesoft, the symptoms are explained in the referred KB article. Is that remote machine is accessible thru WAN?

    In regards to mkarekar's question, the "host name" option is not available in the SQL Server 7.0 Profiler, but you can use the Profiler under SQL Server 2000 to trace the "host name" on a SQL Server 7.0 server.

    Hi shreesoft is your problem resovled ? what protocol are u using to connect to SQL server i.e TCP/IP or NETBOIS...

    Regards to hostname issue : As the trace is scheduled on the server itself i cannot use SQL2K feature.

    I am using tcp/ip connection and this error doesnt comes often some times it pops up

    If your setup permits is it possible for u to switch to NETBIOS and try to run the profiler. I am suspecting connectivity issues while running profile from remote machine.
