SQL 2005 migration issue

Hey everyone, I do not know anything about SQL, so hopefully someone can help me out. Installed SQL 2005 on a new server.  Restored a database from SQL7. The database I restored is called "train" for example and in that database is a user called "train_user" I cannot connect to the obdc data source using this "train_user".  I do not know if the password didn't carry over during the migration and don't even know how to check or change this password.  I don't know if this user needs certain privileges to be able to access the SQL server?  They are the db owner of the database that I restored.  The application I am trying to launch gives me the odbc error.  This info is stored in an ini file.  If I change this info to sa, then I can access the application. If I need to provide more info, I can do that, but hopefully someone understands what is going on or what I need to do to fix it. Here is the error code:  Error: 18456, Severity: 14, State: 5.

Issue with transactional replication on SQL 2005 SP3 using row filters with bit columns

We recently upgraded from SQL 2000 to SQL 2005 SP3 and I am noticing something that I think is a bug with replication from a publication that has an article in it with row filters.  It seems to be that if the row filter has columns that are bit datatype and that column is updated on the publisher to cause the row filter to exclude it, it is not removed from the subscriber.  If you update a column that is part of the row filter that is not a bit datatype it works as expected.  I can reproduce this in a test environment with a small base table.  In production this is resulting in an occasional 20598 error "The row was not found at the Subscriber when applying the replicated command". Is anyone aware of a hotfix that addresses this? I can think of a few work arounds but the table is rather large and I really would like to avoid having to pull replication, re-snap or changing datatypes on the base table etc. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

SQL Server Express 2005 connection timeout issue.

Client: Sql Sever Management Studio Express 2005 (SSMSE) on Vista Server: Sql Server 2005 Express on Windows Server 2008 Standard When I first try to log into SSMSE from the client machine, the login operation times out. When I retry, the login succeeds almost immediately. If I close the app and re-open it, the same thing happens. This appears to be infinitely repeatable. I am able to reproduce this behavior using SQLCMD.exe. Here's the error: "Timeout expired. The timeout elapsed prior to completion of the operation or the server is not responding. (Microsoft SQL Server)" The technical details reference Error Number -2 What may be unique or tricky about this client's network is that it's a mixture of IPv4 and IPv6. I believe the server is configured for both, but honestly the networking side of things is outside of my expertise. Has anyone else experienced a problem like this? I'm looking for some troubleshooting tips and of course a flat-out answer :-). Thank you in advance for your time and expertise - I hope I've broken the problem down to its simplest form. Will.

Issue in SMO DB transfer from SQL 2005 EE to SQL 2008 EE SP1

Hi All, I am transferring DB from SQL Server 2005 EE to SQL 2008 EE SP1 using SQL Server SMO. I am using the TransferData method of Transfer object. I am facing a problem where it creates the DB on 2008 instance but does not create any table, view and procedures. This is not getting reproduced every time.

Issue with Enable and Disable Parameters in SSRS 2005

Hi Guys, I am currently facing an issue with Enabling and Disabling Parameters in SSRS 2005. Here is my scenario. I am having the following 4 parameters - ParamType (has values 1,2,3), ParamMonth, ParamStartDate, ParamEndDate Now What I want is When I select ParamType = 1 and 2 then ParamMonth should be enabled and ParamStartDate and ParamEndDate should be disabled. When I select ParamType = 3 then ParamStartDate and ParamEndDate should be enabled and ParamMonth should be disabled. I have done google search on this issue and found out that this is not possible at run time. Is there any alternative for this issue? If the above is not possible, I would like to get atleast in this way : When I select ParamType = 1 and 2 then ParamMonth should show the values (from dataset named MonthDataSet and default should be the latest Month) and ParamStartDate and ParamEndDate should show as NULL. When I select ParamType = 3, then I need to enter ParamStartDate and ParamEndDate values manually or pick via datepicker and ParamMOnth should show as NULL. I am not sure whether this is possible or not....but just trying to get in some way. Here is the query used in MonthDataSet : Select Month_Code, Month_Name from MonthTable. Thanks

IO queuing issue after migration from 2005 to 2008

Hi,   Are there any functional changes to the number of outstanding IOs to a LUN from 2005 to SQL 2008? 2008 seems to have a limit of 128 outstanding IOs to a DB volume where SQL 2005 does not. I am struggling to find any SQL tuning parameters that would impact how the db can read/write to disk? Help/comments appreciated.

SSRS 2005 to 2008R2 custom code migration issue


We have an SSRS 2005 report that we upgraded to 2008R2 with custom code in the report properties code tab that no longer works.  We checked permission setting in the report server config files, checked if the data set was passig nulls and it is not, looked to see if we ignored the error if the report would render the correct value anyway despite the error and it did not, tried different code variations and referencing different system libraries without luck....we are truly baffled.  The only thing that does work is setting the total to 0 and removing the loop through the jsColl to compute the total.  Here is the code that used to work on 2005.  Any ideas why it does not work on 2008R2?  We call it in an expression =Code.getTotal()

SSRS 2005 Render Format Excel Issue with Time Field


I have a report that uses a datetime field but gets populated only with the time. So, in SQL db, it gets stored with a default date value of 1899-12-30 12:01:01 with the correct time filled in. Report in SSRS Preview mode displays the value just fine when I use the Time format in Layout mode. I build and deploy and able to view the report in a web browser with no problem displaying the time field. But when I subscribe to the report and choose Excel render format, when I open up the Excel file from the email that was sent, I get negative decimal values. I have tried every possible Time format in SSRS but I get the same result. I also tried just the default and still gives me negative decimal values that show up as ####### in Excel.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

SSIS 2005 Buffer Manager Issue


Hi All,

I am facing Buffer Error while running my SSIS Package. I have configured BufferTempStoragePath Property of Data Flow task. Even though I am getting the following Buffer Manager Error.

Description: The buffer manager cannot create a temporary storage file on any path in the BufferTempStoragePath property. There is an incorrect file name or no permission.  End Error  Error: 2010-09-24 07:40:01.01     Code: 0xC0047048     Source: DFT Load Fact Data DTS.Pipeline     Description: The buffer manager cannot create a temporary storage file on any path in the BufferTempStoragePath property

Is there any other property settings or workaround to resolve the issue?



MS Sql 2005 Connection issue


Dear All,

I am facing an issue while connecting to MsSql2005 through my Application. The server is installed on my local machine itself. If I am using the name of my machine in the connection string like - Data Source=hostname\sqlexpress;Initial Catalog=test;Max Pool Size=500;Integrated Security=True;as

then in that case it is working fine. but if I am using ipaddress in place hostname in the connection string then in that case it is throwing the following error

'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: TCP Provider, error: 0 - No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.)'


I have checked the ip address of my machine and it is the same which I am providing in the connection string. I have checked the SQL Server Configuration Manager  and TCP/IP is enabled there for the IP address of the machine. I have allowed the remote connections for the DB server also.

Please suggest me some more trouble shooting steps which can be done from my side

Issue with SAN Drive Migration in master database in clustered SQL Server 2005 SP1




In our SQL Server 2005 SP1 cluster, I have to retire the existing SAN and move all my databases to new SAN drive. I have successfully moved all datafiles (user,system databases, resource) except master database.


Even when I change the parameters in start-up from configuration manager, I am getting error when starting up from cluster administrator / configuration manager.


But I am able to start the SQL Server successfully from command line (without any flags).


When I start the SQL Server from cluster administrator / configuration manager (after changing the parameters), I see that the start-up parameters are changing back to originalpath (old SAN) .


Please let me know incase you need any more information.

Issue when migrating Reporting service reports from SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2008


Hi Friends,

We are migrating reporting service reports from SQL server 2005 to SQL Server 2008 and facing below login issue.

We got a virtual machine with 2003 server and got SQL Server 2008 installed with reporting service.

I was able to publish my 2005 reports using VS 2005 easily.

1) But when I try to run the reports I am getting below errors at my website home page.

The permissions granted to user 'DomainName\MachineName' are insufficient for performing this operation. (rsAccessDenied)

I could not get why there is no user name in above error and how it says machine name does not have permissioin?

There should be at least some user id mentioned as per me.

What could be the reason of above error?

2) Also when I try to run reports using Reports website (i.e. http://server/Reports URL), I get below errro in executing the reports.

"An error has occurred during report processing. (rsProcessingAborted)
Cannot create a connection to data source 'ReportSource'. (rsErrorOpeningConnection)
Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON'."

Here the question is how it is picking up Anonymous logon. I thought it might be using Network Sevice acct to access reports.

What should I be doing to resolve above errors?

3) Also one more point about the s
