    I had been working fine but just recently started getting an error "Timeout expired.  The timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the operation or the server is not responding. "

    Server has been stopped and restarted.  Not sure what else to try.  Any guidance is greatly appreciated.

    Below is the Stack Trace:

    [SqlException (0x80131904): Timeout expired.  The timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the operation or the server is not responding.]

    Hello Parker,

    This exception means that the connection with your SQL server is lost and it takes too long for the server to respond. It is really hard to say why this is happening and the reasons could be many, for example :
    • there might be other applications that interact with the server or the server load could be too high, so it is basically unable to respond within a reasonable timespan;
    • firewall could also close the connection for some reason.

    Usually such error may occur even if you have an error in your connection string, but you said that you see this error while working, so we believe this is not the case.
    Could you tell us more about this error and your server and software configuration? We want to find out a solution and we are to invest as much time as needed, until your problems are solved.
