As of Service Pack 2, Windows 2000 Professional limits the number of concurrent connections to 10.
This affects the eloqdb6 database server. Whenever this limit is reached, Windows affects the tcp listener in eloqdb6 which then will not accept any more connections even if previous connections are closed.
To recover from this situation, the eloqdb6 must be restarted.
Thus, Windows 2000 Professional (as of Service Pack 2) is not suited to operate the eloqdb6 database server. Other Eloquence services might be affected as well. Therefore, at the moment the Windows 2000 server software is required until Microsoft would decide to change this behavior with a future service pack.
