Problem with printing database diagrams

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 11, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
When I print a database diagram directly, I get the top left corner obsrured on the printout by what looks like an empty popup box. This means the columns names are blanked out for the first 5-6 rows. I have tried this with a variety of printers and the effectis the same on all. The problem appears to be specific to SQL2005 as one of the servers has both SQL2000 and SQL2005. The disagrams from the SQL2000 print perfectly, the ones from SQL2005 do not.

SQL2005 has been patched to SP2.

I have circumvented the problem by writing an SSRS package to print the output of a stored procedure that emulates the database diagram. Also there is an option in SQL2005 database diagrams to get an image of the diagram. I have printed this in Word and it prints flawlessly that way.

WSS 3.0 - problem with moving the database


My company wants to move a database included with WSS 3.0 installation to a *separate* server.
We want to have the database completely separated, on a different computer, on SQL Server 2005 installation.

Unfortunately, I'm not sure If the sharepoint is configured as a "Web Front End" or  "Stand-alone".
All I know, everything currently is on the same computer, and we can connect to the live database using the following path: \\.\pipe\MSSQL$MICROSOFT##SSEE\sql\query

The question is, how can we move the database to SQL Server 2005, on very different server, leaving the application untouched?

Quick summary, we currently have:

--- Server A: (WSS 3.0) + [windows internal database / SSEE (not sure!)] + DOMAIN X

and we want t

problem rename sharepoint 2010 search service application admin database

Hi all, i have a problem that hopefully someone has an answer to.  i am not too familiar with sharepoint so please excuse my ignorance. we have sharepoint 2010 on a windows 2008r2 server.  everything seems to work fine.  but as you know, the default database names are horrendous.  i have managed to rename all of them, except for the "search service application" admin database. the default is: Search_Service_Application_DB_<guid> the other 2 databases (crawl and property) were renamed without a problem. we are following the article from technet on how to rename the search service admin db (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-nz/library/ff851878%28en-us%29.aspx).  it says to enter the following command: $searchapp | Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication -DatabaseName "new database name" -DatabaseServer "dbserver" however, i get an error about identity being null.  no big deal, i add the -Identity switch and the name of my search service application.  but the real problem comes the error it throws:   Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication : The requested database move was aborted as the associated search application is not paused. At line:1 char:54 + $searchapp | Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication <<<<  -Identity "Search Service Application" -DatabaseName "ShareP

Database connection problem in ASP.NET

Hello,            I m having a database problem that I couldnt identify. The IIS loses connection to database once in 3 weeks.  Once  you restart the IIS everything is normal. Looks like IIS is fine because i can go to static pages. When I go to a page that requires database connection I get this error: A transport-level error has occurred when sending the request to the server. (provider: TCP Provider, error: 0 - Either the application has not called WSAStartup, or WSAStartup failed. A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server)   Is this a connection string problem?. because without changing anything if I restart the webserver all is fine.  Is this a problem with application state?   It cant be at the sql server side as other applications on the machine work fine. There is something going on with IIS not sure what it is.   Any help would be appreiciated.   Thanks, Bharani      

Basic data type problem with database insert

Hi,I'm trying to write some values into a database, but I think there's an issue with the data types.  Here's what I've got: public static string Hello(string pageId, string inOut) { string itemId = ""; string period = ""; var cookie = HttpContext.Current.Request.Cookies["visitorGUID"].Value; SqlConnection conn; SqlCommand comm; conn = new SqlConnection(GlobalSettings.DbDSN); comm = new SqlCommand("INSERT INTO myTable (memberGUID) VALUES (@memberGUID);", conn); comm.Parameters.Add("@memberGUID", System.Data.SqlDbType.Text); comm.Parameters["@memberGUID"].Value = cookie; try { conn.Open(); comm.ExecuteNonQuery(); return "Item added: cookie = " + cookie + " / pageId = " + pageId + " / inOut = " + inOut + " / pageId = " + pageId + " / itemId = " + itemId + " period = " + period; } catch { return "Item caught: cookie = " + cookie + " / pageId = " + pageId + " / inOut = " + inOut + " / pageId = " + pageId + " / itemId = " + itemId + " period = " + period; } finally { conn.Close(); } } At the moment I'm just trying to insert the value of the cookie into the database as a test.  It works fine when I

Security problem with cross database chaining and stored procedures

I have a situation whereby ProcA exists on database A, but ProcA executes about 20 stored procedures scattered across different databases. To further complicate matters some procs that ProcA calls also call other procs in other databases, this then presents the problem of cross database chaining where you can’t really write to a database from a proc that resides in another database. I am wondering how I can get around this problem, I know I can simply let open cross database chaining and the problem will go away, the other option is to create a proxy which is very complicated and wouldn’t work in my environment. Is there any way around the problem.

Performance problem when rendering in PDF, printing (SSRS2008)

Hi I have a report containing a rectangle/tablix attached to a dataset of course details. The rectange contains a number of text boxes showing course details (fields from the dataset: course title, department etc.) and a sub-report which is a list of students on that course (controlled by passing appropriate parameters). This worked fine until I decided I wanted one of the text boxes (course_title) to repeat on each page whilst printing. To achieve this I added a column group on course_title and set the header to repeat on each page, as suggested elsewhere on this forum. This works fine when simply viewing the report in BIDS or after deployment (SharePoint), but not when attempting to print, print preview or convert to another format (e.g. pdf). The report itself runs in a matter of seconds (<10) but the conversion runs for about 90 seconds before aborting (probably due to server settings) and in IE taking the browser down with it. I've tried not repeating the group header on each page but the problem persists, unless I remove the group altogether. I've also tried adding the student dataset and the list directly into the main report, but that created too many restrictions on the list (e.g. not enabling list column headers to be repeated on each page). Is there a known issues with grouping affecting the performance in this way? Are there other ways around any of these p
