You need to troubleshoot why the connection is failing. I would start by checking with your network administrator. Maybe you need to increase the connection timeout value if you have a slow network or slow servers.

I have check the network. It shows that there is a tcp reset from SQL server, plus this is 1GB network. I do not believe there are anything wrong with network. I have changed the timeout value on SQL to 6000 which is 100mins already...
