connection problem to sql 2000 on windows 2003 from Windows 95

Hi all,
I have a Windows 2003 server, which is also a terminal server for
application, with sql 2000 installed. My company has developed an
application that uses SQL 2000 as its database. The application is a
client/server one. In each client computer there's a link to the
application on the server. There is no problem with Windows 98,
Windows 2000 pro, Windows xp pro clients, but the windows 95 ones
cannot log in to the database. The log of the application shows the
following error:
connection error -2147467259. Cannot open database requested in login
'database name'. Login fails.
Till a week ago the application was running on a Windows 2000 server
with SQL 2000 install and the W95 clients had no problem connecting to
the database, so my guess is the error has something to do with
Windows 2003 server, but what'causing the error?
I tried to install a newer version of MDAC (MDAC 2.5, the last version
of MDAC you can install on W95)but with no success. By the way W95
clients have no problem accessing shared folder on the Windows 2003
server.
Any idea?
Thanks
Marino

That particular error message means that the logins have a default
database that does not exist on the server, or which they have not
been granted access to.

Are the W95 clients using SQL authentication or Windows authentication?
I would assume that SQL authentication is the only thing that works.

Review how the Win95 clients access the server, and then do an
sp_helplogins on the logins they use. Then check DefDbName, whether
this database exists, or if they have been granted access. Use
sp_defaultdb to change their default db if necessary. (sp_defaultdb
may be called something else; use Books Online to find out.)
