error reported while upgrading SQL server to sp4

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 05, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

Hello all,

This morning i found that one of our clusters has not been upgraded from sp3 to sp4 for our SQL server 2000. As i tried to install the service pack i clicked next and entered in the virtual server name and clicked next again. I then received the following error (please note that the path is not correct as i had to grab this from another post).

Buffer overrun detected !
Program mbarr\LOCALS~1\Temp\3\_ISTMP1.DIR\_IN55576._MP
A buffer overrun has been detected which has corrupted the programs internal stsate. The program cannot safely continue execution and must now be teminated.

I have looked around for this specific error but i cannot find anything. Any suggestions?

Error Upgrading from SQL Server 2000 - > 2008 R2 Reporting Services


Hello, I am having some trouble upgrading an existing SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services installation from an old server to a new one commissioned for this purpose, which is running SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services.  I have been following the instructions here:


but after trying to connect with reporting services 2008, i get this error:

The version of the report server database is either in a format that is not valid, or it cannot be read. The found version is 'C.0.6.54'. The expected version is '147'. (rsInvalidReportServerDatabase)

before starting the process, I ran upgrade advisor and got back the following results:


Setup can upgrade a SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services instance that uses a SQL Server 2000 Database Engine in the same instance. However, upgrade is blocked if the report server database is in a different instance, on a remote instance, or runs on a remote SQL Server 2005 instance in SQL Server 2000 compatibility mode.

*note, our reporting services IS in the same instance as the SQL Server 2000 database engine.  However, upgrade advisor still reported that this instance can not be au

Upgrading from SQL server 2005 to 2008 and get an error message

I am halfway through the process and get this error message "Use the Reporting Services Configuration tool to configure the database source name (DSN) and connect to the database." on the Reporting Services Authenication page.

This is the runtime version that is distributed with Amicus Attorney, a lawofffice management program.

I can barely spell SQL and have no idea what this is about, but Amicus told me it wasn't their issue.

Error on upgrading from SQL Server 2005 to 2008 R2 from version 628 to version 629

We having dificulties in restoring a SQL Server backup from 2005(x86) to 2008 R2(x64). We used a typical backup/restore combination to a file. After importing data (aprox. 90GB), it gets to 100%, and then an error appears:

Error Handling: Throwing Custom Exception Types from a Managed COM+ Server Application


Exception handling semantics in .NET are based on type, so you can create custom exceptions that have their own properties and methods. In .NET, exceptions are first-class citizens, and since they're the built-in error handling mechanism, all .NET-compliant languages must support exceptions. In addition, COM+ services are available to .NET code as Enterprise Services, so you can leverage exceptions in your Enterprise Services design.In this article the author describes custom exceptions, throwing exceptions across COM interop boundaries, and working with Enterprise Services.

All my server-controls became unrecognized!!! like there's compilation error or web.config missing!



please help - the problem is in post subject.

I have lots of warnings with following text:

"Warning 10 Element 'HyperLink' is not a known element. This can occur if there is a compilation error in the Web site, or the web.config file is missing. C:\Users\Pavel\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\WebSites\BioWebSite\ToScientist.aspx 26 18 C:\...\BioWebSite\" 

But web.confg is there! And there's no compilation error!

Site builds just fine. And If I upload it to my hoster - it works!


But with all these errors I cant add controls to pages - VS2010 adds hyperlink without ID, and intelisens stoped to work.

Strange, but in my other project (web-application) I have no such difficuty.

sql server agent - job schedule 22022 error

RDL Rendering (500 Internal Server) Error at Sharepoint Integrated Reporting Service


I have a serious problem that cannot be solved by googling around the keywords below:
sharepoint, moss 2007, reporting service, ssrs 2008, rendering, internal server error, ....

The error is;

"An error occurred during client rendering. The remote server returned an error: (500) Internal Server Error. "

Everything is O.K.;

* When I render the report from the REPORTSERVER (http://localhost/ReportServer)
* When the reports are scheduled to be sent by the reporting service (planned via MOSS 2007) 

But if I open (render) the RDL file from the sharepoint REPORTS LIBRARY interface, all of the reports fail with that internal error message above. 

It is weird also that parametrized reports are displayed without errors although the parameters are queried from a sql dataset. But I got the error when rendering the report after I've chosen a parameter  and order "apply/report"...

Possible causes how I met that error may be;

After I have installed (then uninstalled) AJAX extensions
After I have re-configured IIS Web Service Extensions list items

Possible solution alternatives I've found;

I've found a solution on MSDN replying a similar issue with an ideal cause of the error but an evreka answer but no sol

Very strange error reported in View (Might be a bug in VS2k8?)



As I say in the title of my post this "may" be a bug in VS2k8 Pro, I have seen these strange little things happen before but whenever you utter the word "bug" people tend to get defensive, so I say it "may" be ;)

Basically I have two List(Of MyOwnClass) and I am going to enumerate through these lists on my view.

I add the Import statement to the top of my view so that my custom class can be used on it.

I add a very simple loop,

                    <%For Each CPDCourse As Download In CType(ViewData("CPDAvailable"), List(Of Download))%>
                        <td style="width:100%">
                            <a href="<%=CPDCourse.URL%>">
                            <a href="<%=CPDCourse.URL%>">

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
    1. The remote server returned an error: (405) Method Not Allowed.

      trying to upload a file to website folder. website address:

      Getting error from above line.. Am doing something wrong??
      I dont want to use ftp or share folder logic..
      is there any other way to upload the files to server??

So, I'm just learning ASP.NET with C#, but this code just makes the page display a "500 - server error page"

the webpage is here: hereswhereyourewrong.net/aspnettest.aspx

<!-- I'm not sure why, it compiles just fine. -->
<!-- The last time it was because I had asp:TextBox fields not in a form -->

            public void updateTime(object sender, EventArgs e)
