TF30042: The database is full on SQL 2005 DB

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

One of our Devs was cleaning out some old workspaces from a user no longer with the company so we could reclaim files the user had checked out. He was running the tf workspace /delete command: and got the following message. TF30042: The database is full. Contact your Team Foundation Server administrator.

Based on some blog posts I verified that the Recovery mode was already in Simple. There was plenty of remaining drive space on the drive the DB/Logs live on. The Files settings are shown below and the databse is currently is 285MB and the log file is currently 56.3MB so I don't see where there would be a problem. We havent had any other reports of this error and devs are checking data in and out of TFS.

Any ideas?

AutoGrowth = Checked
File Growth
        In MB = 1
Maximum File Size
        UnRestricted File Growth

Log File
AutoGrowth = Checked File Growth
      In percent = 10 
Maximum File Size
     Restricted File Growth (MB) = 2,097,152

Do I need free space when doing full database restore in SQL Server 2005?


I have a drive 'F' with 40G free space. I try to restore a database whose data + log file size is 60G.

The restore fails. Is it because a full restore needs  free disk space of 60G in this case?


Point In Time Recovery of Database with Full-Text Search enabled SQL 2005


Is this possible? 



Backup made at 10:30

changes made in system

Tail of the log backup taken at 10:35

Restore to point in tim 10:33 

At this point I get the error System.data.sqlclient.sqlerror: The File "sysft_yadayada_1" was not fully restored by a database or file restore.  The entire file must be successfully restored before applying this backup set.

BUT when I restore the database to most recent possible I have no issues..

when I do a select * from sys.master_files    sysft_yadayada_1 does not exist in that list, but  sysft_yadayada_5 does... When we were initially configuring fulltext search for this application we had a couple hiccups first till we got it working and thats the filename that ended up sticking.

Maintenance plan to rebuild Full-text index ? (SQL 2005)

Is it possible, through the GUI Wizard, to create a Maintenance plan that rebuilds (rather than reorganise/optimise) a Full text index in 2005 ? The full text index is based on one table only - so would using the "Rebuild index task" in the Wizard do the trick ? I wouldn't mind if the other indexes on the table were rebuilt too, but main concern in the Full text Index. If not - then I guess it would be a scheduled job which does a ALTER FULLTEXT CATALOG catalog_name REBUILD, but I thought it would be nice to keep it within the - Management - Maintenance plans - section of SQL Management Studio. Also - should this be preceeded with a transaction log backup ? Had some issues rebuilding them last night - seemed a Log backup was needed.

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!

Failure in restoring an database from tape - SQL Server 2005

Hello everyone, we are trying to restore one of our datebase from tape using the T-Sql commands. Using the GUI results in an timeout. The command we are using to start the restore is: RESTORE DATABASE RECOV FROM Tape = '\\.\tape0' WITH  FILE=2, RECOVERY, NOUNLOAD, STATS=5, MOVE 'xxx_OPL_xxxx_ZEELAND' TO 'K:\RECOVER\data\RECOV.mdf', MOVE 'xxx_OPL_xxxx_ZEELAND' TO 'K:\RECOVER\log\RECOV_log.ldf', REPLACE the restore proces start without any problem, only ending with this: Processed 2598808 pages for database 'xxx_OPL_xxxx_ZEELAND', file 'xxxx_PROD_Data' on file 2. Processed 3 pages for database 'xxxx_OPL_xxxx_ZEELAND', file 'xxxx_PROD_Log' on file 2. Msg 3229, Level 16, State 2, Line 1 Request for device '\\.\tape1' timed out. Msg 3213, Level 16, State 1, Line 1 Unable to unload one or more tapes. See the error log for details. Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 1 RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally. In the eventlog, the following is recorded: BackupTapeFile::UnloadTape: PrepareTape(UNLOCK) failure on backup device '\\.\tape0'. Operating system error 21(The device is not ready.). For as far we can judge, the tapedrive is functioning without problems. Using the same tape in an other tapedrive on an different server results in the same error.

Unable to install SP3 on SQL 2005 due to Database Services language being blank

Hi all,   I have an issue that requires me to upgrade to a later SP (currently on RTM), but when I try to install SP3 Database Services cannot be ticked. Upon inspection I see that its reporting "This update requires language ENU.  The language for this product instance MSSQLSERVER is . Download the upadte for langage .", when I check teh Language field to the right it is blank, other parts however are fine and can be upgraded. Can you advise please as I don't know how to manually set the language (which is reported inside SQL itself as English (United Kingdom)) and I cannot un/reinstall. Thanks, John

SQL Server 2005 Log Shipping and subsequent FULL backups that are needed

Afternoon,   I have a few Log Shipped DBs that are working great.   Currently they are set to fire off every 15 minutes 24/7.   My question is this ... I need to get FULL backups of the source DBs in order to restore them on certain Dev boxes.   If I were to execute the full backup on one of these Log Shipped DBs ... how would it affect the log shipping process?   Is there a special method to accomplish this?   As a side note, what would be some concerns/issues if in being able to create the FULL backups and not interupt log shipping, I were to create the backup using a 3rd party tool like Quest LiteSpeed?   I sure wish we were on Enterprise, then I could create a mirror and then snapshot off it to create my backups BUT ... that is not the case as we stand today.   Thanks

Restore 2005 database on 2008 R2 Trial

I've downloaded SQL Server 2008 R2 Trial and installed it on Windows Server 2008 trial running under Virtual PC on XP. I've made backups of databases on my SQL Server 2005 and tried to restore them using a) the wizard - results in a messagebox saying "Specified cast is not valid" and no backup sets are available in the Restore Database window. b) using T-SQL - results in Msg 3183, Level 16, State 2, Line 1 RESTORE detected an error on page (0:0) in database "dp" as read from the backup set. Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 1 RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally. Using the wizard and RESTORE on 2005 for the same database backup works fine. c) Detach on 2005 and Attach on 2008 results in: SQL Server detected a logical consistency-based I/O error: incorrect pageid... Detach and Attach worked fine on 2005 and DBCC CHECKDB revealed no errors. Thanks for any info...
