We have a Web Server where we connect to retrieve images. On some websites we established connection and it works fine, but on others it doesn’t. When I try to connect to one project I get this massage.


“Web Services found at this URL:”  “The request failed with HTTP status 503: Service Unavailable.”

“There was an error downloading 'http://boracdevvmmtc/FOCISWebService/CheckImaging.asmx'.

The request failed with HTTP status 503: Service Unavailable.”


What is wrong with this message?

The 503 status is coming from IIS, which for some reason has decided to be unavailable. You need to look in the Windows Event logs or otherwise ask IIS why it thinks it should be unavailable. Possibly, there are too many connections open or something like that.
