Error when running an SQL script to restore a database on SQL Server 2008 R2 Express

  
Hi, At work, I use SQL Server 2008 Express running on Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3. At home, I also use SQL Server 2008 Express running on Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3. Whenever I do work on the database at work, I usually restore the database at home (or vice versa) I have been using the following SQL scripts to back up the database and to restore the same database (at work or at home). BackupRealEstate.sql USE Master BACKUP DATABASE [RealEstate] TO DISK = N'F:\My Documents\My Database\RealEstate.bak' WITH NOFORMAT, INIT, NAME = N'RealEstate-Full Database Backup', SKIP, NOREWIND, NOUNLOAD, STATS = 10 GO RestoreRealEstate.sql USE Master RESTORE DATABASE [RealEstate] FROM DISK = N'F:\My Documents\My Database\RealEstate.bak' WITH  FILE = 1, NOUNLOAD, REPLACE, STATS = 10 GO Everything worked fine until I replaced my 8yo home computer with a newer and faster one. My new home computer is running Windows 7 Home Premium and I use the latest SQL Server 2008 R2 Express. When I tried to run the above restore SQL script, I got the following error message: Msg 3101, Level 16, State 1, Line 2 Exclusive access could not be obtained because the database is in use. Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 2 RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally. There was no other application/process using this database. Can someone please help me? Regards,

Error upgrading SQL Server 2008

  

i was normally using VS2005 and SQL server 2005...

i upgraded to SQL Server 2008... and then...

i could not build my project anymore... because of this error:

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

ssrs 2008 R2 - report parameter with no default set throws java script error

  
We have recently upgraded from SQL Server 2008 to SQL Server 2008 R2....I am experiencing a problem with my report parameters on my SSRS reports. It seems that my report parameters that I do not have a specified 'default' value throws a java script error when I try and run/render the report under R2.  As soon as I put a 'default' value on the report param, everything is fine.  However, that is not the behavior we need for our reports...the user needs to pick their selection. Can anyone shed some light on this, it seems to be an AJAX problem...I need to be able to have report parameters with a list of values, but no 'default' value on the parameter.

Hello,        I am able to login Web Service URL and report manager using computer name and report builder is also working fine.  http://RPTSRV/reportserver   (RPTSRV is report server name. web service url working fine. all accessible) http://RPTSRV/reports  (report manager working fine and all accessible ,report builder too) It means I am able to access everything locally right? http://rs.test.abc.com/reportserver  (web service url working fine. all accessible)  http://rs.test.abc.com/reports    (Report manager working fine and all accessible accept report builder)(I carefully checked the link and its taking rs.test.abc.com/reportserver.....)     when I click on reportbuilder button in report manager it shows me error dialog box with following error log!! I tried from local and remote computer too but gives the same error both side. I am not sure but I am just thinking is this double hop kerberos security issue? Please help me to solve this problem.

2008 R2 Tuning Advisor reports "Error: Exception encountered(DTAEngine)"

  
I am encountering an error when I try to use the SQL 2008 R2 Database Engine Tuning Advisor. I create a very simple workload (either by right-clicking a query in SSMS or by loading a file), and click Start Analysis.  In the "Consuming Workload" step DTA aborts, and in the message column displays "Error: Exception Encountered(DTAEngine)". When I click on the error message, I get a dialog box with a title of DTAEngine, and a message "Error: Exception encountered". This is a clean test environment (SQL 2008 R2 Data Center Edition 64-bit, on Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit, in a VM) against a local database. Any ideas about what the problem is or how to resolve it?

SQL Server Network Interfaces Error 26 - while failing over SQL Server 2008 R2

  
Before I explain the issue I am facing, I would like to say that I did read the post at  http://blogs.msdn.com/b/sql_protocols/archive/2007/05/13/sql-network-interfaces-error-26-error-locating-server-instance-specified.aspx but in my case the problem is transient (lasts for approximately two minutes after a failover) so items 1-3 in the list of troubleshooting steps do not seem to make sense. As to 4 and 5, the named instances use non-default ports (2433 and 3433 respectively), so I do not know how to tailor the PortQry command for that. I tried  portqry.exe -n ServerA,2433-p UDP -e 1434 and  portqry.exe -n ServerA,2433 -p UDP -e 2434 and it failed both times with a "Failed to resolve name to IP address" while the server was up and serving database requests The same thing happened when I tried it with the failover server as well. ***The issue I am facing*** I am using Enterprise Library 4.1 to connect to a SQL Server 2008 R2 database with a mirror. My connection string itself is as below (with dummy values for all fields): "Data Source=ServerA;Failover Partner=ServerB;Initial Catalog=DBName;User ID=uid;Password=pwd;Connect Timeout=5" Sample .NET code is as below (with modifications to instantiate all variables locally to provide context): SqlDatabase db = new SqlDatabase(ConnectionString); SqlConnection cn = (SqlConnection)db

While installing SQL 2008 EE, weget a warning in the reule check as below, "Rule "Microsoft .NET Application Security" generated a warning. The computer cannot access the internet.

Error in RESTORE in LOG FILE. Anyway to exclude it?

  
I'm trying to install a database (on a SQL Server 2008 machine) with test data sent by a partner company in the form of a .BAK file. (Version of SQL Server they are using unknown). I'm using this script: Use Master RESTORE DATABASE XEMS FROM DISK = 'C:\temp\xemstest6-29.bak' WITH REPLACE, MOVE 'XEMS' TO 'E:\XEMS DATABASE\XEMS.MDF', MOVE 'XEMS_Log' TO 'E:\XEMS DATABASE\XEMS_Log.LDF' The Restore process churns for a while, then I get: Processed 2576 pages for database 'XEMS', file 'XEMS' on file 1. Processed 5 pages for database 'XEMS', file 'XEMS_log' on file 1. Msg 3283, Level 16, State 1, Line 2 The file "XEMS_log" failed to initialize correctly. Examine the error logs for more details. Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 2 RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally. At this point the database is unusable - trying to do anything with it produces an error indicating the database is still in a Restore state. There is some problem with the LOG portion of the backup, which I really don't need anyway. I'd like to just NOT restore the log. Came across this article which seemed to refer to the exact problem I'm having...  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/915385/en-us They offered this suggestion: "Use the WITH NO_LOG clause during the restore process." However - in checking the RESTORE syntax.... http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr

SQL 2008 Restore on a 2008 R2 Cluster

  
I've built a 2008 R2 Cluster running sql 2008 as a clustered application.  We do full backups with arcserve.  I'm trying to come up with a process to get the cluster back online for disaster recovery.  I can get the Windows cluster back online but when it comes to sql I get stuck.  Would I basically get the cluster back online than use the command - setup /action=rebuilddatabase /instancename=MSSQLServer /sqlsysadminaccounts=domain\username?  Than start the database in single user mode, install the arcserve sql agent and restore all the db's? When I try this I get the error element does not exist error.  Right, now I'm starting from scratch to see if I get the same result.  I just want to make sure I'm on the right track and not spinning my wheels trying something that won't work in a clustered application.   Thanks,   Matt
