isn't the Toolbox supposed to be consistent in all VS 2008 IDE instances?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Hi all,

I added a new tab to my Toolbox (Ajax Control Toolkit) and I am not seeing the same tab when I open other instances of my VS 2008.

Is that normal?

Rebooting one Instance on a SQL 2008 Server with multiple instances installed

Hello, Hoping someone can answer the following questions ... If I have SQL Server 2008 with multiple Named Instances configured on it, can I reboot one Named Instance without rebooting any of the other Named Instances, or without having to reboot the entire server ?

Strange issue with a huge SSRS 2008 report (supposed to return 3 million records)



NOTE: The strange part (as mentioned in title) will come in the end.

I am running a SSRS 2008 report which fetches 3 million records from a remote server. After around 1 hour the report processing stops and I see an error icon on the lft bottom of the browser window. When I click on that to see the error details it shows some PageRequestManagerSQLErrorException with an unknown error message with code 12029 (sometimes 12002).

When I see the reportserver logs there is an error message logged in it which says "Microsoft.ReportingServices.Library.ReportServerDatabaseUnavailableException: The report server cannot open a connection to the report server database. A connection to the database is required for all requests and processing. ---> Microsoft.ReportingServices.Library.ReportServerDatabaseUnavailableException: The report server cannot open a connection to the report server database. A connection to the database is required for all requests and processing. ---> System.InvalidOperationException: Timeout expired.  The timeout period elapsed prior to obtaining a connection from the pool.  This may have occurred because all pooled connections were in use and max pool size was reached."

The <DatabaseQueryTimeOut> value in the report server configuration file is already having a value set to 7200 seconds(2 hours).<

SQL 2008 Server SP1 Updating to SQL 2008 SP2 - No Instances Found


Currently Running Specs

OS: Windows 2008 R2 Standard Server 64bit
SQL: SQL 2008 Server Service Pack 1 64bit
SQL Query:SELECT SERVERPROPERTY('productversion'), SERVERPROPERTY ('productlevel'), SERVERPROPERTY ('edition')
Returns:  10.0.2531    SP1    Standard Edition

Logged in as Administrator

1. I downloaded SQL 2008 SP2 64bit - SQLServer2008SP2-KB2285068-x-64-ENU
2. Ran the setup
3. Passes the System Configuration Check
4. Accept License
5. Select Features - PROBLEM - Greyed Out - Only Shared Features shows up with SQL Server Books Online and SQL Client Connectivity SDK
6. If i click Next - i get the following message
There are NO SQL Server instances or shared features that can be updated on this computer

I looked in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Setup Bootstrap\Log\summary.txt

and this is a section of the results

I noticed that the Full Text Search is of a value less than sp1 like the other engines

could this be why the update isn't working?

If so how can i get around it -

Product features discovered:
  Product              Instance             Instance ID   &nb

How to point two web applications in a MOSS farm to two different clustered sql 2008 instances



We have a MOSS production farm with sql 2008 backend and the sql part is clustered. We have a couple of web applications in this MOSS farm and one of the web applications and the sites underneath it are very critical to our company. We are planning to move the database of this particular web application to a different sql instance and have the remaining web applications host on one instance.  We currently use sql aliases to point to our database server and so i am wondering how do we make this particular web application to point to the different instance. Should we create another sql alias on all our sharepoint front end servers or is there any other preferred option ? 

Thanks !

Using Conditional Split data Transfer in SSIS 2008

This article uses the Integration Services Conditional Split Data Transformation element to filter and transfer data from a set of flat text files to SQL Server database table. The concept can be easily extended to apply to any other source or destination such as Microsoft Excel. This scenario is useful in creating denormalized database tables in a reporting and analysis situation.

Seven reasons to care about SQL Server 2008 R2

Microsoft begins to fully realize its vision of SQL Server as an information platform and not "just" a database. Hence the main theme for this release -- at least according to Microsoft -- is self-service BI. The PowerPivot plug-ins for Excel 2010 and SharePoint 2010 are easily going to make the biggest splash of all the new features, not least because they're the most complete. But then, SQL Server 2008 R2 isn't strictly necessary for PowerPivot for Excel, which works with plenty of other data sources.

Building Re-Usable ASP.NET User Control and Page Libraries with VS 2008


I am having problems with a user control. I want my solution to have a separate project for holding my user controls.

The main project can get a reference to this user control project and can import this user control dll into my main project. 

Thanks in advance,

Multiple Instances of User Control


I have a user control that I place on a page severl times.  When I make a selection on a ddl in one one control the SelectedIndexChanged event fires for all the control on the page for that ddl.  So I get duplication of an insert that I do.  Is there a way to make sure these events are isolated so this doesn't happen.
