Microsoft SQL Server - SEVERE: Unable to create initial connections of pool


I'm seeing a lot of errors logged at '/var/lib/dynatrace/remotepluginmodule/log/extensions/datasources/com.dynatrace.extension.sql-server/dynatracesourcesql.jar.log', ones such as the below. We are using the Microsoft SQL Server extension on 4 of our servers but this error is only logged on 3 of them. As far as I am aware we are not missing metrics but I guess because the extension (2.0) maybe is eventually failing over to the 1 server that can make the connection?

Has anyone seen this type of error before and know how to fix it?

Not seen one before like that.

The errors you are seeing seem to be on the ActiveGate side. As metrics are flowing in, seems it might not be impacting measurements.

Maybe it would be better to open a Support ticket, Dynatrace should be able to dig into your other log lines and find out what the problem might be.

Definitely would suggest to open a support ticket. We would need more details in addition to this log line. Generating support archive might be very helpful.
