Posted By:      Posted Date: October 20, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

Hi All,

I wanted to get some feedback on replicating an AR system database. Does anyone have any advise or a list of DOs and Don'ts. I am looking at doing Transactional replication via a WAN

merge replication system tables fragmentation issue

I have Merge replication going on in my environment. The problem is that system tables like MSmerge_content, MS merge _tombstone and MSmerge_genhistory are getting fragmented. We are rebuilding indexes time to time daily. But we want some good fix. Just send some good idea guys?

SQL Server 2005 SP4 Install Fails - error log references replication system tables


The OS is Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 (32 bit).  Trying to install SQL Server 2005 SP4 (current version is 9.00.4035).  All SQL products update without error, except for the Database engine.  The error listed in the summary.txt file in C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Setup Bootstrap\LOG\Hotfix is:

Is there no need to manually clean up merge replication system table?



In my previous post, Hilary replied that the size of MSmerge_Contents doesn't really matter, but index fragmentation does. However, referring to BOL, it says, "Additionally, you should minimize the size of the merge system tables (specifically MSmerge_history) by using sp_mergecleanupmetadata." Is it still necessary to do that in SQL Server 2005? 

Also, when running select metadatacleanuptime from sysmergesubscriptions, I found that the cleanup time is just about a week before. However, my merge interval is only 5 minutes, and I remembered during last week I did a manual sp_mergemetadataretentioncleanup although paused in half way. How to check the clean up interval?

Last but not least, I have already did index rebuild on MSmerge_Contents, MSmerge_henhistory, and MSmerge_tombstone, and found that the average fragmentation dropped from above 90% (MSmerge_Contents) to below 1%, but the overall performance did not improve obviously. I remembered when merge replication was set up at the begining, th

On rebuilding indexes of MSmerge_Contents and other replication system tables



In my previous question leads me to the index rebuild of MSmerge_Contents system table. However, I am still not sure what the explicit and correct way to rebuild index is. 

Refering to examples in BOL, the syntax should be something like the following:

ALTER INDEX ALL ON msmerge_contents

After checking system.indexes, I found that the fill_factor of 4 indexes of msmerge_contents are all 0. Does this mean I do not need to specify the value of FILLFACTOR? How about another 2 parameters, i.e. SORT_IN_TEMPDB and STATISTICS_NORECOMPUTE?

Do I need to specify ot

System Development Life Cycle

The Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC) is a conceptual model used in project management that describes the stages involved in an information system development project from an initial feasibility study through maintenance of the completed application. Various SDLC methodologies have been developed to guide the processes involved including the waterfall model (the original SDLC method), rapid application development (RAD), joint application development (JAD), the fountain model and the spiral model. Mostly, several models are combined into some sort of hybrid methodology

The goal of this article is to describe the agile system development life cycle (SDLC), putting it in context from what you may have heard about within the agile community and more importantly within the context of your overall IT efforts.

Performance Tests: Precise Run Time Measurements with System.Diagnostics.Stopwatch

Everybody who does performance optimization stumbles sooner or later over the Stopwatch class in the System.Diagnostics namespace. And everybody has noticed that the measurements of the same function on the same computer can differ 25% -30% in run time. This article shows how single threaded test programs must be designed to get an accuracy of 0.1% - 0.2% out of the Stopwatch class. With this accuracy, algorithms can be tested and compared.

Problem upgrading to MVC3 - System.Web.Routing



I'm trying to upgrade to .NET 4 and MVC 3.

When trying to compile my project, I get the error:

Error 1 The type or namespace name 'Routing' does not exist in the namespace 'System.Web' (are you missing an assembly reference?) C:\Users\spencer\Desktop\weblauncher\Common\MVCConfig.cs 4 18 Common

The type or namespace name 'Routing' does not exist in the namespace 'System.Web' (are you missing an assembly reference?)

I do have the System.Web.Routing in my references for the project.

BUT - when I try to view System.Web.Routing in the OBJECT BROWSER, nothing is inside!  The System.Web.Routing namespace is not in there - the entire thing is empty!  Could it that the dll is corrupted?  I tried to reinstall the .NET 4 and MVC 3 stuff, but its still empty!

The dll is coming from here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\.NETFramework\v4.0\System.Web.Routing.dll

and the runti

Good Day all,

Having an issue with an outside user accessing my IIS7 box. I do not have this problem when running the website from my host machine. I found this post: Http://forums.asp.net/t/1371394.aspx. I assure you that this is not a solution because I am not storing any of my files on a network share. 

What do you think my approach should be. 

I already have read rights to IIS user to my BIN folder. 

Thanks for the help. 

System.IO.Packaging is not visible


I am new to ASP.net, I installed VS2005 and IIS 5 on my PC and set up my first website using IIS (not the embedded webserver in VS).

For some reason I cannot find the Assembly: "System.IO.Packaging", please let me know if I am allowed to use it in that medium and how can I reference it?

Thanks in advance.

The type 'System.Data.Linq.DataContext' is defined in an assembly that is not referenced. You must



This is frustrating, and I don't know how to solve it.

I have a strange problem. I am adding a LinqDatasource object, and set the context:

        protected void LinqDataSource_ContextCreating(object sender, LinqDataSourceContextEventArgs e)
            e.ObjectInstance = new KaruselaDataContext(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["ConnectionString"].ConnectionString);

Then I get this error:
The type 'System.Data.Linq.DataContext' is defined in an assembly that is not referenced. You must add a reference to assembly 'System.Data.Linq, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089'.


On web.config I already have this:
<add assembly="System.Data.Linq, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089"/>

NOTE: The datacontext is in a different project (DLL proect) where I added a refernce to System.Data.Linq.

is there another way adding a refernce to a web project? or only though teh web.config?


System.Xml.Linq.XElement and XPathDocument


I have an XPathDocument that I want to save to a table using LINQ, but I get this error

cannot implicitly convert type 'System.Xml.XPath.XPathDocument' to 'System.Xml.Linq.XElement'

I create the XPathDocument from some (valid) xml contained in a resource file

XPathDocument xDoc = new XPathDocument(new StringReader(Resource1.TestXML));

when I try to assign it with LINQ, it flags up an error

NewDataItem.XML = xDoc  ----  error here

NewDataitem is a LINQ to SQL object created from the underlying table, 'NewDataItem.XML' is a column type of 'XML'

how do i (easily) convert xDoc so I can pass it into the LINQ object ?

System.DirectoryServices NOT available


I have simply copied a page from a VS2005 project to a VS2010 project, and it will not work.

NO code-behind, just a simple Page_Load function in the .aspx page.

and okay, since this editor complete f's up a cut and paste from VS, I will type it all out....wonderful!


<script runat="server">

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EvnetArgs e)


   System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry ...



This is really all you need to see.

The System.DirectoryServices is not available in intellisense and gives an error if I try to run this.

I have added the reference to my VS project - no go.

I have added a reference as an @Import at the top of the page - no go.

All other System classes appear to be available, but not DirectoryServices, so anyone know the secret handshake to get this to work in VS 2010?
