Because of the intermittent nature of the behavior I am thinking it is tied to a specific WebI Proc (we have four of them). I have not cracked the code on how you tie together Audit data to show which JobProc "Run" even ties to a specific WebIProc "Refresh" event.
1) The connection binaries in the WebIProc's got corrupted somehow during the Support Pack upgrade.
2) Corba communication between JobProc and WebIProc is being disrupted (would not explain On Demand errors)
3) Lingering cache files of some kind
Looking for ideas.
