Run Reporting services 2005 with databases housed on SQL Server 2008?

  
Hi, I have a RS 2005 install in which the ReportServer and ReportServerTempDB databases reside on a different SQL Server 2005 server. I am planning to upgrade both to 2008 at some point but would like to do the SQL database engine first. So I would be running something like this: Server A: SQL 2005 Reporting Services Server B: SQL 2008 database engine - housing ReportServer and ReportServerTempDB Is this configuration supported? If I do this would I just need to run the DB's in 9.0 compatibility mode until we upgrade the RS server? Would it be better to upgrade the RS box first or both of them at the same time instead of doing the database engine first?

Run Reporting services 2005 with databases housed on SQL Server 2008?

  
Hi, I posted this in the RS forum as well but was thinking it would be better here. I'm not sure if I can move a post to  a different forum or not so sorry for the double post.

SQL 2008 R2: Where to get all of the locks the way we used to get them in SQL server 2005 - OR 2000?

  

Hi,

In SQL server 2000 and 2005, I used to have a nice practical list of all SQL Server sessions and list of locks with useful details make troubleshooting quite easy.

In SQL Server 2008 list of locks are taken out from the “Management” section of SSMS and there is a clumsy “Activity Monitor” option which doesn’t provide information about sessions and locks in the nice way we used to have in SSMS 2005.

Using SSMS 2008, Is there any way to get the same list of locks and sessions similar to what we had in SSMS 2005?

Thank you

SQL Server 2008 / 2005 Databases Replication

  

Domain One - abc.com (IP Address scheme - 185.192.X.X)
Domain Two - xyz.com (IP Address scheme - 10.200.X.X)

There is a Forest level trust between those 2 domains.

Can you please help me if there is there any way that I can replicate the datas in 185.192.1.200 Server to 10.200.18.15 Server (which has both Ms Sql Server 2005 on it) - which will have same database in both servers. There is a chance to link those 2 servers in those 2 networks and store datas at the same time on each servers. So that if one goes down, staffs can log into another one without any down-time to access data from another server's database (which is the replica of the primary DB server). Please let me know & also if there is any good resource about that the same.

Failure in restoring an database from tape - SQL Server 2005

  
Hello everyone, we are trying to restore one of our datebase from tape using the T-Sql commands. Using the GUI results in an timeout. The command we are using to start the restore is: RESTORE DATABASE RECOV FROM Tape = '\\.\tape0' WITH  FILE=2, RECOVERY, NOUNLOAD, STATS=5, MOVE 'xxx_OPL_xxxx_ZEELAND' TO 'K:\RECOVER\data\RECOV.mdf', MOVE 'xxx_OPL_xxxx_ZEELAND' TO 'K:\RECOVER\log\RECOV_log.ldf', REPLACE the restore proces start without any problem, only ending with this: Processed 2598808 pages for database 'xxx_OPL_xxxx_ZEELAND', file 'xxxx_PROD_Data' on file 2. Processed 3 pages for database 'xxxx_OPL_xxxx_ZEELAND', file 'xxxx_PROD_Log' on file 2. Msg 3229, Level 16, State 2, Line 1 Request for device '\\.\tape1' timed out. Msg 3213, Level 16, State 1, Line 1 Unable to unload one or more tapes. See the error log for details. Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 1 RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally. In the eventlog, the following is recorded: BackupTapeFile::UnloadTape: PrepareTape(UNLOCK) failure on backup device '\\.\tape0'. Operating system error 21(The device is not ready.). For as far we can judge, the tapedrive is functioning without problems. Using the same tape in an other tapedrive on an different server results in the same error.

(SQL Server 2008) Exporting entire databases to SQL CREATE/INSERT statements

  
Hi All, I'm looking for a way to export SQL Server 2008 (Express or otherwise) databases to CREATE/INSERT statements.  I've seen a million threads (give or take) with instructions for creating large (often illegible) TSQL scripts for the task.  However, I'm hoping that this isn't the only way by which to do it.  I have need to regularly back up the data from existing MS SQL Server DBs (which are used by some of our standard apps) to various other MySQL and PostgreSQL databases (which are used by PHP and Rails web front ends).  I need to export them from MS SQL Server 2008 to a general format (i.e. INSERT statements) and perform regex edits on the file as necessary. FYI, I've written a few applications that connect to the various DBs over ODBC, etc. and transfer the data row by row.  You can image how painful this process is... I realize that there are many tools that do this.  However, most of them approach the issue from the standpoint of migration, and not that of regularly scheduled backups.  Also, this tool will need to eventually be distributed so having to purchase a license for the migration app for each person/group simply isn't feasible. Anyway, if you guys have a quality, straightforward solution to this issue, it would certainly be appreciated. Best.

Moving a Copy of SQL Report Server 2005 and Upgrade to 2008

  
Hello, We have SQL 2005 Report Server in a Windows 2003 64 bit server box. We want to create a copy of this report server database somewhere in the domain, so that we can access it for a different purpose. My question is, will there be any complications with this? I'm thinking about the encryption key that's needed to access the database. If we are successful with this, we might also want to upgrade to SQL 2008. Thanks for your help,   Elizabeth K.
