and it doesn't matter if the other shop has that database open first or not?

Yes, both shops connect to same server.

There are only 2 databases which both shops connect two..

The hardware is 100% the same.

Every setup should be the same as everything is created in code, the DSN
is created from Paradox by writing to the registry. Alias are created in
a start script.

This setup has workded for over 10 years for this client and other
clients have similar setup without problem.

What is really strange is that it's the opening of the database that
takes 100 times longer than normal. Once opened, other operations are
not affected.


One SQL server with two databases

Shop 1 to Database A - OK
Shop 1 to Database B - OK
Shop 2 to Database A - Problem to Open, after that OK
Shop 2 to Database B - OK

It's just doesn't make any sense.

No, I haven't tried different DSN, that will be my next step. There must
be something causing this, but what?

Thanks for your input Tom!
