After I installed the MDAC 2.6 in COM+ Server, I'd a problem with a long delay to connect the COM+ with SQL 7 clustered.

I had some tests, explained below:

* COM+ in server 1
* SQL Server in server 2

1) Try COM+ connect in SQL Server with thrust authentication
ConnectionString: " Provider=SQLOLEDB;Server=SERVER1;Database=master;P
ersist Security Info=False;Integrated Security=SSPI"

(this SQL Server is Sort Order 52)
--> connect in 10 seconds


2) try COM+ connect in SQL Server with SQL authentication
ConnectionString: " Provider=SQLOLEDB;Server=SERVER1;Database=master;P
ersist Security Info=False"

--> connect in 0,1 seconds


3) Try COM+ connect in SQL Server with thrust authentication
ConnectionString: " Provider=SQLOLEDB;Server=SERVER2;Database=master;P
ersist Security Info=False;Integrated Security=SSPI"

(this SQL Server is Sort Order 54)
--> connect in 0,1 seconds



CODE:

Dim cnnData As ADODB.Connection

Set cnnData = New ADODB.Connection

Trace "Before cnnData.Open"

cnnData.Open "Provider=SQLOLEDB;" _
& "Server=SERVER1;" _
& "Database=master;" _
& "Persist Security Info=False;" _
& "Integrated Security=SSPI"

Trace "After cnnData.Open"

cnnData.Close
set cnnData = Nothing


All answers will be welcome.
Thanks,
