Sql Server 2008 R2 Replication

Dears, I am make a testing environment before implementing it into real world. I have 3 servers SQL 2008 R2, i configured 1 Publisher, 2 Subcribers with a merged replication. Everything is Ok. However, i have an ID field on Publisher which is autonumber(Start by 1, increment by 1). When I try to add new record on publisher, it takes it 1 by 1 i.e. 1-2-3.... But i try to add it on subscriber it starts with 20,000 i.e. 20001, 20002. I think this is logical for SQL, but can i define this number on the subscriber? So it will start on 200,000 for example? Another question, In LAN i can connect the subscriber to the publisher, it will connect to it directly, since it is broadcast. But in WAN environment how can the subscriber detects the publisher??? Your reply is highly appreciated, Thanks in advance,

Using SQL Server Replication for SQL Server 2005 and 2008

I have an ASP.NET application that uses replication, and uses the RMO DLLs to do this. I initially built the application against the 2005 version of the DLLs and have it running successfully against SQL Server 2005. However, when I try running it against SQL Server 2008 it doesn't work. Initially I didn't deploy the Microsoft.SqlServer.* DLLs with my app - instead relying on them being in place on the server on which it was installed. However, when trying to make it work against SQL Server 2008 it was looking for the 2005 version DLLs which it wasn't able to locate. Following some other advice I read online I have now swapped out the 2005 DLLs and referenced the 2008 assemblies in my .NET project. In my MSI I now also deploy (i.e. redistribute) the SQL Server 2008 DLLs to the bin folder of my ASP.NET project. Now, when I try to run the application against SQL Server 2005 it fails to load the Microsoft.SqlServer.Replication assembly. I run depends.exe against this and find that it's dependent on SQLNCLI10.DLL which is missing on my machine with only SQL Server 2005 on it. So, what am I to do? Is this possible? How do I get around this?

SQL server 2008 to oracle replication

Hi, I am trying to replicate data from a sqlserver to an oracle 11 subscriber(push subscription). I recently moved to SQL server 2008 from 2005. The replication in 2005 worked ok, and now in 2008 - it does not. The problem: It tries to make some fields as an interval data type in Oracle. For example, nvarchar(3) are turned into interval and numeric(38,8) fields are turned into nvarchar2(40). Anyone has any idea why is this happening and how can I change it?

Slow sql-server after upgrade from SQL-Server 2005 x64 standard to SQL-Server 2008 R2 x64 enterprise


We moved our databases to new hardware today (using copy database wizard)


The new hardware should be better than the old one.

We went from 28 GB ram to 128 GB.

We went from 16 cores to 32 cores (with even more cache etc.). We also moved from external SAN with 40 disks to intern disks (8 Samsung SS805 100gb ssd slc)

                             According to our own metrics we could get twice the IO using IO m

General replication questions - SQL Server 2008 R2


First, can SQL Server 2008 R2 replicate to SQL Server 2008 R2 Express Edition???

Second, I have setup replication from R2 to a SQL Server 2000 database.  I defined a stand-alone table (not a parent or child) and replication worked fine.  I simply changed a record and it was reflected in the 2000 database.

Next, I changed the table to be replicated to be a parent table.  After I changed a record in this table, replication failed.  The error message said it was unable to drop a table because it was in a relationship.

Questions.  When replication occurs between a publisher and subscriber and several records in a table targeted for replication, is the table dropped in the subscriber database then copied over in its entirety???  When I define a table to be replicated, do I have to include all the related tables???



SQL Server 2008 Standard


My virtual machine, Windows server 2008 R2, was setup to run Power Save by Faronics.  Faronics requires SQL.  I purchased SQL Server 2008 R2 standard, but Faronics is not certified on SQL 2008 Standard R2, so I downgraded to just SQL 2008 Standard.

While trying to install SQL Standard 2008 I go a message that "The program has known compatiblity issues, and SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1 must be applied after setup completes", I clicked Run Program but go the message "Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5 SP 1 install failed".  After googling, I found info about using Server Manager to install .Net Framework 3.5 as a role, which I did, and .Net 3.5.1 is on the list of roles for the server, but the message about .Net Framework still comes up.

SQL Server 2008 SP1 - Replication


Hello All !

I have some questions about replication with SQL Server 2008 --> context

An offshore team has developped a Web application (IIS 7/.Net 3.5). The databases are stored on volumes hosted on a SAN (Windows 2008 cluster 2 nodes with SQL 2008 SP1 in A/P mode)

Special queries and results (insert/update/delete) are stored in database on cluster

Special consultation queries (select only) are redirected to another server which will contain the database copy) in order to create realtime reports

Log shipping and mirroring can't be choosed because this application needs real time.

I want to know if it is possible to create a solution with cluster and replication. If yes, waht is the prerequisites and how to do that ?

Thanks for advance for your ideas / help - Regards - Have a nice day ! RHUM2

SQL Server 2008 merge replication snapshot hangs on filtered articles


I have a publication on SQL Server 2008 Standard Edition using merge replication.  When I attempt to generate the initial snapshot, the snapshot agent appears to hang on the step "Setting up the publication for filtered articles."  I get a long (over 4 hour) series of messages: "The process is running and is waiting for a response from the server."  I know something is happening server-side, as SQL Server and the snapshot agent use a lot of memory and max out one core's processing capacity.

This has me confused as the publication is not doing any filtering.

Even more confusing:  I backed up the database and restored it onto my development-test system.  I created the snapshot there, and it took under 10 minutes every time.

Any suggestions for investigating and resolving this?

SQL Server 2008 Merge Replication article triggers not replicating


Currently running merge replication on SQL Server 2008 10.0.1600 and having issues with adding and modifying triggers on published articles.  I've searched through the MSDN site and googled it but have not found any definitive information on correct procecdures.

We have a replicated table that had 1 trigger on it when it was added to the publication.  That trigger was replicated.  We have since added a 2nd trigger to the table and it is not being replicated to our other server.  I've checked the Article Properties and Copy User Triggers is set to TRUE.  The only difference is the new trigger has NOT FOR REPLICATION in it, but I thought that would only keep it from being executed if a row is effected by the MERGE process.

We have rerun the snapshot and are syncing continuosly and the trigger does not replicate.  Do I have to drop the tablefrom the publication and then re-add it?  Am I missing something? 


Applying SP1 for 2008 Standard Server

SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard edition running from one Core


Hi, I have a client who we just upgraded to Win 2008 R2 Standard Edition and SQL 2008 R2 Standard Edition

They are complaining about System performance. 

Looks like SQl runs only on 1 core, maybe sometime 2 which is maxed out.

"Automatically set Processors affinity mask for all processors" is checked and also

"Automatically set I/O affinity mask for all processors" is checked...

The server was maxed out with memory a few days ago but looks to me that that is something taht SQL 2k8 R2 does. The server has got 16GB ram

Pretty urgent. Got 3 hours to solve it.



Failures in running Repair for 2008 SQL Server standard edition


Dear users,

2008 SQL Server Standard edition.


While running Repair I got below failures,

1. Upgrade failed due to the following error. The error code is :-214747259.Message:Unspecified error

2. The process cannot access the file 'C:\Windows\system32\perf-SQLSERVERAGENT-sqlagtctr10.0.1600.22.dll' because it is being used by another process.

3. The service did not start due to a logon failure.

I wonder what causes the failures and what I should do to fix them.


Could you tell me what to do?

Thank you,
