SQL 2008 SP1 - ALTER FAILED in Maintenance Plan

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 02, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
Hi, One of my SQL 2008 SP1 servers is experiencing periodic failures of a database maintenance plan that includes integrity checks.  Failed:(0) Alter failed for Server 'ssomsitrack1v'.  I've seen other postings from people who have had this issue with SQL 2005 and fixed it by either applying a service pack, enabling the "automatically set processor affinity mask" and/or I/O affinity mask settings, or by executing a sp_configure 'allow updates',0. This server already has both affinity mask checkboxes set, and allow updates is already set to 0.  The maintenance plan fails with this message about 1 in 4 times.  The server is on a VMWare VM w/2GB RAM and two vCPU's.  There's only one user database and it's tiny (~200MB). Any ideas?

Cannot create maintenance plan in SQL 2008 SP1

I receive the following error trying to create a maintenance plan in SQL 2008 SP1 on a Windows 2008/R2 server: The action you attempted to perform on a remote instance of SQL Server has failed because the action requires a SQL Server component that is not installed on the remote computer. To proceed, install Microsoft SQL Server Management Tools on the remote computer, and then try again. The components that installed are Database Engine Services, Reporting Services, Client Tools Connectivity, Management Tools Basic/Complete, and SQL Client Connectivity SDK.  I have another independent SQL 2008 SP1 server running on the same platform with the same features installed and I have no problem creating maintenance plans there.  However, it does have IIS as it was upgraded from a SQL 2005 server which required IIS for reporting services while SQL 2008 does not. I'm familiar with http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sqltools/thread/06c80a78-a877-4a48-a032-b0aef78a598c but that doesn't seem to apply as this was a new SQL 2008 installation on a freshly installed OS.  I've seen several other postings of this on the web but they all appear specific to SQL 2005. What else could be missing? Thanks.

SQL 2008 Maintenance Plan configuration help

A client has purchased a software package that runs on SQL 2008, They did the initial install but that is a they want to do on there end. They have sent us a list on maintenance jobs to be configured but are no help in getting them in place. I have very little SQL expereince so I am looking for direction. Here is a list of jobs they wanted setup. 1.       Check database integrity – set plan to fire off daily. 2.       Reorganize index – set weekly – except on the week that you Rebuild indexes.  Start index page size at 50%. 3.       Rebuild index – set monthly 4.       Update statistics – set weekly after reorganize indexes and rebuild indexes. 5.       Clean up history – set monthly 6.       Back Up Database (FULL) – set daily 7.       Maintenance Cleanup Task – this is to control the number of locally available backups.          Can anyone help me get these in place? Thanks in advanced for any help. I am doing manual backups only a this time.

SQL Server 2008 Maintenance plan will not delete bak and trn files


I have a sql 2008 maintenance plan to backup databases and to delete old bak files.  The db backup works but the delete does not.  I do not get any error messages, all steps marked successful.  So, I copied the sql statement EXECUTE master.dbo.xp_delete_file 0,N'Z:\SQL BACKUPS\',N'bak',N'2010-11-14T12:43:35',1 and tried to execute in a query window.  I have a successful completion message, BUT the files are not deleted.  I have ensured that the extension is bak and the folder is correct and the account has sysadmin on the server and is a sql sa.  I have tried many options and no success.  

We are version   Microsoft SQL Server 2008 (SP1) - 10.0.2531.0 (X64)   Mar 29 2009 10:11:52   Copyright (c) 1988-2008 Microsoft Corporation  Enterprise Edition (64-bit) on Windows NT 6.0 <X64> (Build 6002: Service Pack 2) (VM).

Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!

Server 2008 R2 -> Failed to decrypt using provider 'RsaProtectedConfigurationProvider'. Error mess


So I am using the aspnet_regiis.exe tool to encrypt sections of the web.config in my asp.net applications and services.  I have done this for years successfully on Windows Server 2003 (IIS 6).  However I just moved some apps over to Windows Server 2008 R2 (with IIS 7.5) and I am now receiving the following error at runtime:

"Server was unable to process request. ---> Failed to decrypt using provider 'RsaProtectedConfigurationProvider'. Error message from the provider: Bad Data."

Now I am quite familiar with this process and am stumped at what I have missed this time around.  I have done ALL of the following which typically suffices for the process on the server. PLEASE READ ALL AND DO NOT PROVIDE RESPONSES OR LINKS FOR THINGS I HAVE ALREADY DONE Thanks!!  Wink

  1. Imported the keys to the server using aspnet_regiis -pi  Result: Success
  2. Given FULL permission (using -full switch) using aspnet_regiis -pa to ALL of the following accounts  Result: Success

SQL 2008 R2 (final): SSMS freezes: "Failed to retrieve data for this request.

The original thread is locked for some reason--but the cause of the bug had something to do with the "ssms tools pack" add-in, which, according to the comments in the connect item, will be fixed in an update of ssms tools: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sqlkjdatabaseengine/thread/f65737b7-fe4d-487b-aa41-ef437d100bc7 https://connect.microsoft.com/SQLServer/feedback/details/556169/ssms-completely-locked-up-after-right-clicking-a-table

Maintenance plan to rebuild Full-text index ? (SQL 2005)

Is it possible, through the GUI Wizard, to create a Maintenance plan that rebuilds (rather than reorganise/optimise) a Full text index in 2005 ? The full text index is based on one table only - so would using the "Rebuild index task" in the Wizard do the trick ? I wouldn't mind if the other indexes on the table were rebuilt too, but main concern in the Full text Index. If not - then I guess it would be a scheduled job which does a ALTER FULLTEXT CATALOG catalog_name REBUILD, but I thought it would be nice to keep it within the - Management - Maintenance plans - section of SQL Management Studio. Also - should this be preceeded with a transaction log backup ? Had some issues rebuilding them last night - seemed a Log backup was needed.

Maintenance Plan Works, But Not Through SQL Job

If I am in the wrong sub-forum, please let me know where I belong. I submitted this issue to this sub, b/c I believe I have an accessibility issue. I have a maintenance place that executes a stored proc. The stored proc is as followings: CREATE PROCEDURE spFirst     @Err AS INT = -1 AS     EXEC @Err = xp_cmdshell 'dir C:\temp\*.exe'     EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail @profile_name = 'Mail_Proj',                                        @recipients = 'me@xyz.com',                                              @body = 'Complete',                                           @subject = 'Dir Listing' The proc runs successfully and when done, I always get an email message in my Inbox, as expected. When the proc is executed directly from the maintenance plan, it still runs successfully, and the email message is successfully received in my Inbox. A SQL Job was setup to run the maintenance plan. The history of the job indicates that it is completing successfully, but this cannot be true, as my inbox never receives the expected email

SQL Server Express 2008 Setup fails. Support Rule "Restart Computer" Failed

Hi, I have been trying to install SQL Server Express for most of the day now without any luck.  Whatever I do setup fails at the stage of Setup Support Rules, Rule "Restart Computer" - Failed.  Needles to say I have restarted (several times!) and I have tried downloading  and installing the "Advanced", "Tools" and "Basic" versions, all give the same error.  Trying a repair does the same.  I have been searching the net for an answer without success, any help would be MUCH appreciated. Further info: I am trying to install a stand-alone installation on to a single PC running under XP SP 3 with .NET 3.5 SP1 installed.  The PC did have some earler versions of SQL server installed but I (?hopefully?) removed all of these through Control Panel.  Before trying the first SQL install I installed Windows installer 4.5 and PowerShell 1.0 as per the Microsoft Instructions. Running SQL Server Configuration Manager results in an error (MMC could not create the snap-in. The snap in might not have been installed correctly).  A directory structure for SQL server exists in "Program Files".  Services MSC shows SQL Server (SQLEXPRESS) as Automatic Statup (not running).  Trying to start this manually gives error 14001: "application configuration incorrect - re-install to fix" .......... Which is precisely what I'm trying to do.........:(
