Provider error '8000ffff' Catastrophic failure

I got the following when opening up a page. It usually happens after I
modify one page(not connections.asp) without refresh in IE. I have to
refresh the IE browser and the error usually will go away. Why?
Thanks.
Provider error '8000ffff'
Catastrophic failure

.

The only time I have ever seen this message is when I was
running an older version of MDAC. What version are you on?

And what are the values of those app variables?

Response.Write application("connstr") & application("uname") &
application("passwd")

MDAC version is 2.52.6019.1

application("connstr") = "DSN=OGDW_MM"
application("uname") = "ogdwadmin"
application("passwd") = "dev08"

That DSN exists? My suggestions:

1. Install newer version of MDAC.
2. Drop the DSN and build a connection string using sample found at
www.connectionstring.com

And maybe change your username/password now that you've posted them. :)

You truly believe the posted username and password to be real?

That DSN exists. The asp usually works with no problem. If there is a
change to one of the asp, then the error messaeg may come out. The
error message will go away if I refresh the IE Browser.

I'm gonna explain my case...

Our architecture:

Server: IIS 6.0
Oracle Client vesion 9.i that connects to our Databases:


Database1 under Unix Oracle 8.i ( !!!!!! Note the different version )
Database2 under Unix Oracle 9.i

Posible Providers to be chosen:
Provider=MSDAORA.1 ( Microsoft )
Provider=OraOLEDB.Oracle.1 ( Oracle )

After several frustated days with this problem (Catastrophic failure ) we've reached to the conclusion that

Connection String with Provider=MSDAORA.1 to Database1 --> Work without problems
Connection String with Provider=MSDAORA.1 to Database2 --> Work withput problems, but we can't wotk with stream Object to read XML Files stored in the database
Connection String with Provider=OraOLEDB.Oracle.1 to DataBase1 --> !!!! Catastrophic Failure !!! ( It works a time, but at the end it crush ) We need to restart IIS. ( Note here the different versions )
Connection String with Provider=OraOLEDB.Oracle.1 to DataBase2 --> It works normally, without problem.

So, after several frustated days we have find the solution changing the provider where proceed in order to have the same version. No more problems have appeared.
I hope this help all of you.. Think in any incompatibility of versions in your architecture if your architecture is not the same...
Bye,bye
