Default Error: Server has reached the maximum recovery...


I have some ASP pages that get records from an Access Db. The Server is W2K IIS5.

Every so often I get the following error:
"The server has reached the maximum recovery limit for the application during the processing of your request. Please contact the server administrator for assistance."

How can I find the cause of this? From my research it appears that it could be a code problem or a setting on the server. I have 3 sites on this server, and all of them are affected when this error occurs even though the sites are isolated.

Any help much appreciated.

Not really finding many related to this.

check out these 2 links



Also found this on the net on another forum.
quote:Just a few questions, did you do an upgrade from NT to 2000 ?
  If yes did you format disk before installing w2k ?
    If no reinstall the entire server, this time format the disk, backup necessary data first. There is a way to backup IIS config only.
    If yes get all the latest security fixes and service packs. Reboot.
    Hope that helps.
