Connectivity Issue

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
I have 2 servers, Server1 and Server2 in the same domain, DomainX.Both are running SQL Server 2005. DomainX\UserY is a member of both the Server2 local Administrators group and the DomainX Adminsitrators group. When I run this from Server1 with the correct password, I get the following results... H:\>sqlcmd -S Server2 -U DomainX\userY Password: H:\>sqlcmd -S Server2 -U DomainX\userY Password: Msg 18456, Level 14, State 1, Server Server2, Line 1 Login failed for user 'DomainX\userY'. What's wrong?

SSIS And Sybase Source OLEDB connectivity issue with code page for character set

Hi I am using SSIS 2008 to connect the Sybase Server version 15.0.3 64-bit. The default character set id used by this Sybase server is 4 (i.e. roman8). (http://manuals.sybase.com/onlinebooks/group-charc/chg0300e/charsets/@Generic__BookTextView/1706;pt=266) I had installed Sybase Client for Sybase OLEDB Driver (ASEOLEDB) to integrate this in OLEDB Source Editor. As per guidance from one of the past MSDN forum discussion, I tried setting property of AlwaysUseDefaultCodePage property to "FALSE"  (http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/sqlintegrationservices/thread/f5af9328-e1fb-48d7-a85d-1d08bb7cf0e5/). However, I am still experiencing error message as follows:- ********************************************************* Error at Package2 [Connection manager "xxxxxx.xxxxxxx"]: SSIS Error Code DTS_E_OLEDBERROR.  An OLE DB error has occurred. Error code: 0x80004005. An OLE DB record is available.  Source: "ASEOLEDB"  Hresult: 0x80004005  Description: "[00000] [Native Code: 30061] [ASEOLEDB]Could not load code page for requested charset".

SQL Server 2005 Express Connectivity Issue


I have a virtual dedicated 2003 server (standard edition) on which I installed SQL Server Express 2005 in mixed mode.  After installing the server I added the 2010 Web Developer package.  I updated the remote connections to allow TCP/IP and named pipes.  I also ensured that the TCP/IP protocol was enabled under the protocols tab.  After restarting the SQLEXPRESS service and attempting to configure a SqlDataConnection in Web Developer I got the ubiquitous error,

"A network-related or instance-specific error occured while establishing a connection to SQL Server.  The server was not found or was not accessible.  Verify the instance name is correct and that the SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections.  (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server)". 

When I try using a trusted connection with sqlcmd I got this error,

"HResult 0x2, Level 16, State 1
Named Pipes Provider: Could not open a connection to SQL Server [2].
Sqlcmd: Error: Microsoft SQL Native Client : An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server. When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not  allow remote connections..

Sql server 2008 R2 x64 / SSMS : Intermittent Connectivity Issue


I have read almost everything on this topic, applied each proposed solution, checked all conf settings but I am stil stuck with these frequent but intermittent connectivity issues.

I moved our databases from a win 2003 + SQL Server 2005 x86 enterprise (where I had no connectivity issue) to a clean install of SQL server 2008 R2 x64 enterprise on Windows Server 2008 R2 x64. Enabled tcp/ip & named pipes, recreated the users (& fixed orphans), opened ports on firewalls client, hardware, even Win Server although it is disabled, applied the UC4 patches, tried various connection strings, created aliases (for x64 and x32), ran the different recommended tools (portQryV2...) to no avail.

Most of the time, I can connect, with SSMS or via code with SqlConnection and execute queries. But frequently, I either lose the connection or cannot connect on the first call. Then it works on subsequent calls. In vb, the  code hangs on the call of the open method of the SqlConnection (and yes I properly close my connections once the queries have been executed). Setting the CommandTimeout has no effect. The code/SSMS freezes for 30/40 seconds.

No error is showing up in the Profiler, Nothing in the SQL Server Logs. The client and the server are on different networks. I connect via TCP/IP(remot

connectivity issue with local instance of sql server


hi everbody,

well for the last couple of days i have almost taken my head out to get this issue resolved.

but still i am no where. i have already referred to so many tips available online but still can't fix the prob.

i am trying to connect a C# ( .net 2005) program to connect to the  integrated sql server 2005 instance on my local computer.

i have got windows 7 home basic on my pc with .net frame work 2.0 sp2 and have also upgraded to sql server 2005 sp3 as per some online study.

i have also tried all these steps but still getting the error 40.

1. Check Whether the SQL Server is running or not.
Because the trial to connect to the stopped server may also cause this problem.

2. Check the name of the SQl Server.
For example, if we try to connect to SQL server using .NET application, for some SQL Server, the name of the server "localhost" works, but for some server, we may need to mention "(local)".

3. Check Whether the SQL Browser Service is running

4. Check Whether the TCP/IP is enabled for SQL Server Configuration

* Expand SQL Server Configuration Manager
* Enable TCP/IP

5. Firewall Settings

You may need to add the port of Sql server to the Firewall if it is other than the default port(1433).

Office Web Apps Powerpoint Network Connectivity issue



After installing and deploying office web apps on an existing sharepoint 2010 farm, I'm facing an issue with PowerPoint web App.

Namely when I try yo open a presentation in browser, after maybe 30sec I get the following message :  "Network connectivity has been lost. Check your network connection or try again later.". I looked into the SharePoint logs and I found multiple iterations of the following record :

IsapiModule Error 500 Issue


I am about exhausted trying to figure out this error:

HTTP Error 500.0 - Internal Server Error

Description: The page cannot be displayed because an internal server error has occurred.

Error Code: 0x8007007b

Notification: ExecuteRequestHandler

Module: IsapiModule

Requested URL: http://localhost:80/ReportServer

Physical Path: c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.2\Reporting Services\ReportServer

When I enable Failed Request Tracing Rules and view the log output I am supposing that the actual problem is in the 2nd call where there are 2 backslashes before the actual filename in the specified path:


CALL_ISAPI_EXTENSION DllName="C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\\aspnet_isapi.dll"


MVC2 issue - Stuck. Trying to create a cms with nested partials


I am currently trying to display multiple items on a single page. I am not sure as to how to tackle this. What I have is a database table that has all the page data in. I have this run as a PagesController and this works fine. However what I would like to do is, if say the Products page is selected via the menu, I want to pull back not only the Products page html but also get all the products, and even be able to pull them through via category. I was trying to use a partial view, but I can't get it to work. The same would be for other pages, having partial views to display the other content, ie if Gallery is selected, the page html for Gallery shows and it then can push to a partial view that pulls all the gallery images from the gallery db table and so on. 

Maybe I am tackling this the wrong way. I have the pages stored in the db to allow for a CMS system I have setup. Maybe I need to use models for all the other items(Products, Gallery, Videos and such) and use the partial for the page html?

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am confused.

User validation Issue in xlsx file

Multiple Paramatized Threading issue


I need the funcitonality to have two methods run concurrently of each other and the parent thread (aka the method that makes these two calls) to halt until BOTH are done. After the threads are done, I need to perform logic on the returns of the method, so it is essential for both of them to be complete before the parent thread continues. I have searched the internet and tried varous attacks, and I always come up with the same result, this being the parent thread continues operation after the first thread finishes, leaving the second thread running.  Can someone show me a quick example of how I can do this. I have tried checking states of the threads, halting the threads, but I always end up with the same thing. Any help would be great. Thanks.

Word Automation in sample ASP.NET(C#) application.

I am using Microsoft.Office.Inetrop.Word Assembly for automation. Here I am reading a XXX.dot template file and fill the contents with dynamic data.

When i am executing my code in localhost:someportnumber the automation is working fine and I could get expected result and when I am hosting in my inetmgr(Windows XP is my OS) it is also working fine.

But the problem is that when I am hosting in my production server(Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition) I am not able to perform automation and results in the following error.

Data: System.Collections.ListDictionaryInternal
Message: Word has encountered a problem.
Source: Microsoft Word

The code gets failed in the following line:

ApplicationClass wordApp = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.ApplicationClass();

Document wordDoc = wordApp.Documents.Add(ref oTemplate, ref oFalse, ref oMissing, ref oMissing); // Error in this line

I cannot able to proceed further. Can anybody please help me in solving this issue?

Thank you.

If Statement Issue



This is very strange to me. I have spent 2hrs looking into this inside out , but dont seem to get it

I have an if statement that inserts data into the database. But i check to make sure the name is not entered twice. Now when the name is already in the db, then it should insert else put out a message saying its already in the db

My code works fine except that  when its not in the db, its inserts but still puts out the message that says "Name is already in use" Not sure if am not seeing something. But thought i did bring it to the forum. Here is my code...Pretty simple

Protected Sub btnAdd_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnAdd.Click

        Dim objConnection As SqlConnection
        Dim objCommand As SqlCommand
        Dim strSQLQuery1 As String


        ' If there's nothing to Add for then don't search
        ' o/w build our SQL Query and execute it.
        If String.IsNullOrEmpty(txtAdd.Text) Or Leadbank.SelectedValue = "000" Then
