System.Data.SqlClient "Timeout expired" causing ASP.net web application to automatically restart.

P: n/a
I have a Web Server running IIS 5 or 6 on Windows 2K and Windows 2003 Server
that is experiencing strange shutdown problems. We are using ASP.NET v1.1
and our application is written in VB.NET

Here's the scenario:

1. .NET Windows Client on a remote machine makes a web service call to
update tables on a Web Server running SQL Server 2000.
2. The Update is updating about 1000 - 3000 records doing simple update
statements like "Update transactions Set UpdateTime = '08/12/2003 04:30:00
PM' "
3. The SqlClient code is receiving the error message below:

Timeout expired. The timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the
operation or the server is not responding.
The statement has been terminated. at
System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection.OnError(SqlExc eption exception,
TdsParserState state)

formation( DataSet currentBalances ): Timeout expired. The timeout period
elapsed prior to completion of the operation or the server is not

The statement has been terminated.

4. I have all my code wrapped in Try/Catch blocks so I see where I catch the
Exception and write this out to a log file.
5. I have code in the Application_End section of the Global.asax and I see
where a different Thread ID comes along and ends my running application.

You can see from the Above log file where the Application_Ends on a
different Thread.

6. I also have code in the Application_Error section of the global.asax,
but this section of the code never gets hit.

7.. When the next Web Request comes in, I write out a History of all the
reasons why the Web Server last shutdown.

onnection reset=false;connection lifetime=5;min pool size=1;max pool

I'm completely stumped as to what can be terminating my web application. I
have verified that I'm not touching the \bin folder of the web application
as I know that this causing web servers to restart themselves.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Chris,
Perhaps it is a setting in the machine.config file. Check under
<system.web> ...
<processModel.. There are many values here that can shutdown the aspnet_wp.

Also it is curious that your connection string sets pooling=false but sets
values used for pooling. I do not know if this would have any effect.
