Can't bring database back online after backup

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 09, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Hey forummers,

I'm a little frustrated here. I have turned the default database offline then used windows explorer to copy the database to another location but when I tried to take the database online again this error came out:

Cannot open user default database. Login failed.
Login failed for user 'Zephere-pc\Zephere(JuLian Yong)'. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 4064)

The cause is that the default database is set offline, How do I bring it back online agian?

Errors in the back-end database access module. OLE DB reported an overflow of the data type for colu

Getting an error when processing a dimension, Errors in the back-end database access module. OLE DB reported an overflow of the data type for column 0. Errors in the OLAP storage engine: An error occurred while the 'xxxxxx' attribute of the 'Dim XXXXXX' dimension from the 'XXXXXXX' database was being processed. Content of this dimension is very similar to one that is processing no problem. The content of the dimension is one field only of type date.  The original content was imported through SSIS from a DB2 database on an iseries machine.  Thought a first the issue was because of the data contains some null values but the dimension the process OK also has some null  values.  The dimension that processes ok is also a single field of type date. Any help greatly appreciated, Roscoe

SQL2008 - Cannot Restore a new database from a full backup of a different one, database in use

I am trying to restore a brand new database from a copy of another one and am encountering an error message stating: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlError: The file <Backup source database file location> cannot be overwritten.  It is being used by database <Backup Source Database>. (Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo) I am running the Restore procedure with the REPLACE option and am wondering why it is stating that the source database is the database in use when I am trying to restore and overwrite a completely different database. This issue happens when running the replace both in C# using SMO and when manually restoring with SqlServer Management Studio Interesting note is, the original source database is created / deployed using a database project within VisualStudios 2010 and then deployed to SqlServer through VisualStudios. Any thoughts on why this is happening? Thanks in advance for any help!

Single-page restore/recover in an online database

I am working with SQL Server 2008 64-bit (10.0.2531) on Windows Server Datacenter 2008 SP2 (64-bit). The problems I am having almost certainly stem from my lack of understanding of how SQL Server's transaction log is handled during recoveries. I am using this document as a rough guide. Here' what I am doing: 1. I intentionally corrupt a single data page in a normal table, so that I can practice single-page recovery. 2. I attempt to read the corrupt block in SQL. As expected I receive an error. 1> select top 10 firstname from ds2.dbo.customers 2> go Msg 824, Level 24, State 2, Server IP-0AF647E0, Line 1 SQL Server detected a logical consistency-based I/O error: incorrect pageid (expected 4:896; actual 3:0). It occurred during a read of page (4:896) in database ID 5 at offset 0x00000000700000 in file 'C:\sql\dbfiles\cust1.ndf'. Additional messages in the SQL Server error log or system event log may provide more detail. 3. I take a log tail backup before I do anything to try to fix the corruption: 1> backup log ds2 to disk = 'c:\sqlbackup\ds2.bak' with norecovery 2> go Processed 5 pages for database 'ds2', file 'ds_log' on file 1. BACKUP LOG successfully processed 5 pages in 0.041 seconds (0.857 MB/sec). 4. I  restore the corrupt page from backup: 1> restore database ds2 page='4:896' 2> from disk='c:\sqlbackup\ds2.bak' 3> with norecovery 4&

Writing values back to a database

Hi All, I'm trying to write values back to an access database from an open source mathematical programming language (called glpk) using ODBC. I succeeded in doing so in most variables except one. The problem is described below: The following code gets an error when writing the data: \begin code:   table x3_iii {j in TF, k in C, p in P, t in T: x3[j,k,p,t]>0} OUT 'ODBC'   'FileDSN=.\d2.dsn'   'UPDATE ((Channels a INNER JOIN ChannelPeriodProducts b' 'ON a.ChannelID = b.ChannelID)' 'INNER JOIN TransformerTypes d' 'on a.OriginFacilityID = d.FacilityID' 'SET b.Quantity = ?'   'WHERE d.TransformerTypeID = ?'   'AND a.OriginFacilityID =?'   '    AND b.ProductID = ?'   '    AND b.PeriodID = ?':   x3[j, k, p, t], j, k, p, t; \end code Note that the sql is on multiple lines, because of a maximum strings limit in the glpk (but the way I used in the code is fine and worked without problems for writing other variables). Now, let me describe what I am basically trying to do: I'm trying to write the values for the variable x3[j,k,p,t] in its field "Quantity" in the table 'ChannelPeriodProducts'. The indices for that variable are j,k,p,t. The 'ChannelPeriodProducts' table has a "ChannelID", "PeriodID", "ProductID" and "Quantity" field

Problems with SSRS 2008 Install when configuring a back-end database on a SQL Server 2008 R2 environ

We are tyring to configure SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS 2008) not the R2 version with a SQL Server 2008 R2 version of database. We are facing error when the configuration manager within SSRS tries to execute its scripts against the database. Do you think that SSRS 2008 may have trouble using a SQL Server 2008 R2 version as the back-end? Also, what kind of permissions does the ID installing SSRS needs to have on the SQL Server database ?  Not much is available in the documenation or online.

Full database backup takes so long

Today several full database backups took so long. Normally it took 2 hours to backup. But today the 5 backups didn't finish by the end of the work day. The backups went well until yesterday. I don't know what happened overnight. Is there a performance tool embedded in SQL Server? How can I find out why the backups take so long? What could be the possible reasons? Thank you,
