Why have all the DataExtensions clasess become internal in 2008 ??

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 12, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
I'm trying to migrate from RS2005 to RS2008. For 2005, connection wrappers were created so that the connection string could come in as a 'logical name', and the actual connection string is looked up (by a call to some service), so the 'real' connection string is then passed to the Connection object. In 2005, this was pretty easy: just wrap a Microsoft.ReportingServices.DataExtensions classes (e.g. SqlConnectionWrapper) and/or inherit from ConnectionExtension class, and done with it. It is not a welcome surprise to find that PRACTICALLY ALL of Microsoft.ReportingServices.DataExtensions.* has become sealed internal. Who has done this? Why? Am I overlooking something evident here? Is there a different, simple way of accomplishing what I need?   At the moment, I'm trying to grab some of the contents of that namespace, implement it myself, and then using it - but this is just duplicating Microsoft code, and I just can't believe that would be the purpose...   Please, help me out - either by pointing me to an easier way, or worst case, by just confirming that all this public stuff now has become private and I just have to live with that....   Many thanks, Frederik

SQL Server 2008 Internal error at ExecuteSqlCmd

On a version of SQL Server 2008 with Service Pack 1 applied (on Windows Server 2003), I am finding that when trying to run a bulk number of jobs using the sqlcmd command, one of the jobs will randomly fail to run with the following error thrown in the command window: Sqlcmd: Error: Internal error at ExecuteSqlCmd (Reason: Unspecified error). I've found that each time the batch of jobs is run, a different one will fail to run each time.  It seems to be completely random which one will fall over, but you can guarantee that at least one will fall over each time. I've tried numerous websites to find an answer and no luck so far.  There is a hotfix which has been released for this exact same problem (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2121407/) but this is only for R2 and so cannot be applied to my installation and we're not in a position to move to R2 as yet. Is there a fix available for non R2 users for this?

Error: "HTTP Error 500.0 - Internal Server Error" - Windows Server 2008, IIS7, SSAS 2008, msmdpump.d



We are migrating from Windows Server 2003 / IIS6 to Windows Server 2008 (32-bit) / IIS7 and I am having trouble getting our OLAP HTTP access re-established.  I had this working fine under IIS6 but am now getting the error "HTTP Error 500.0 - Internal Server Error" when attempting to access msmdpump.dll via a browser.

Our existing Win2003 server emits a blob of useful XML when you access the dll via a browser, the new Win2008 server just issues a HTTP 500 error.  Obviously when I get around this error we'll be using standard OLAP clients like Excel and Report Builder etc.

I have followed these instructions:

The Windows Event Logs contain no errors relating to the failed attempts.  I temporarily configured Failed Request Tracing and got a couple of traces of the error occurring.  The most pertinent thing I could find in the FRT was:

SQL 2008 SP2: adding a "persisted computed column" creates an "Internal Query Processor Error: The q

Hi, a simple (and long-existing) stored procedure started throwing this error after adding a persisted computed column on another table that is not used in the stored procedure (but is referenced by a foreign key in the table used in the stored proc.)
Msg 8624, Level 16, State 1, Procedure pSetPersonExtraAnswer, Line 26
Internal Query Processor Error: The query processor could not produce a query plan. For more information, contact Customer Support Services.

I think I have traced the "culprit" to the following update.
ALTER TABLE dbo.Persons ADD fullName AS (firstName + ' ' + lastName) PERSISTED

Here is the very weird thing:

If I restore the DB, immediately add the persisted computed column and run the problematic SP call, I get the error in Management Studio.

If I restore the DB, run the problematic SP call and then add the computed column, I no longer get an error from SSMS when I rerun the SP call. But, I still get it from my ASP.NET (via enterprise library) code!

When the error happens, altering the pro

Max files in a single WSS 3.0 Database (SBS 2008 Server - Window Internal DB)


This site appears to indicate that the max documents per database is 32,767 :


This seems extremely small to me. Is that an accurate number? We have a customer with 300,000 documents and about 30 users. Is this going to be too much for a single DB?

Using Conditional Split data Transfer in SSIS 2008

This article uses the Integration Services Conditional Split Data Transformation element to filter and transfer data from a set of flat text files to SQL Server database table. The concept can be easily extended to apply to any other source or destination such as Microsoft Excel. This scenario is useful in creating denormalized database tables in a reporting and analysis situation.

Seven reasons to care about SQL Server 2008 R2

Microsoft begins to fully realize its vision of SQL Server as an information platform and not "just" a database. Hence the main theme for this release -- at least according to Microsoft -- is self-service BI. The PowerPivot plug-ins for Excel 2010 and SharePoint 2010 are easily going to make the biggest splash of all the new features, not least because they're the most complete. But then, SQL Server 2008 R2 isn't strictly necessary for PowerPivot for Excel, which works with plenty of other data sources.

Building Re-Usable ASP.NET User Control and Page Libraries with VS 2008


I am having problems with a user control. I want my solution to have a separate project for holding my user controls.

The main project can get a reference to this user control project and can import this user control dll into my main project.

Installing both VS Pro 2008 and VWD2008


I work at an educational institution and in our computing labs we have Visual Studio Professional 2008 installed already. One of our academics has requested me to install Visual Web Developer 2008 Express Edition as they think it's easier for their beginner students to learn, but I've noticed it wants to install it in the same folder as our Visual Studio Professional install.

Can both be installed without the limited VWD interfering with the Professional version?

SQL 2008 timeout


I am recently getting a timeout exception when executing this method. This table stores images and it might be due to the size of the table. I have no idea! Help!

            Dim chunk As Byte()
            chunk = br.ReadBytes(bufferLen)

            Dim cmd As SqlCommand = _
