CE Republishers (or How Can One Change Republisher Ranges through SQL Server 2008)

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 20, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
My company uses mobile devices to assist in inventory tracking across multiple bases around the world.  Right now, our main base is the primary Publisher for data to the other 3 servers, and at each secondary base we have a single merge publication that pushes/pulls data from the mobile devices.  However, there's one replicated article that always throws the 20660 error, regardless of the publisher range/subscriber ranges set.  What can allow this single article to be replicated to the mobile devices as well?

MSSQL 2008 R2: Change Server Collation Steps, with user DBs already of desired collation

On the default instance of SQL Server 2008 R2, I want to change the server collation from the usual US default SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS to an application vendor's required collation, Latin1_General_BIN.  I understand that changing the server collation is essentially the same as changing the collation of databases master and model -- is that a fair statement? But my main question is, since there are user databases on the server that I would like to preserve, can I not simply detatch the user DBs prior to performing the server collation change, and then reattach?  The database collation of the user databases is already set to Latin1_General_BIN.  This article, Setting and Changing the Server Collation, at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms179254.aspx says that to preserve the user databases, I should script all DB objects out, and bulk-copy all data out, because the DBs will have to be recreated and repopulated.  Can someone explain why I ought not simply detach and reattach the user DBs, given that they are already of the desired collation (i.e., the same collation that I will be changing the server collation to)? Your help much appreciated. -Tom

How to change SQL server 2008 collate after installation

Hi, On windows sever 2008 I've installed SQL server 2008 RC0.At the time of installation, I'd specified the collation as LATIN1_GENERAL_BIN, and now I want to change this collation to LATIN1_GENERAL_CI_AS.Please note that I don't want to change the collation of specific db but need to change the sql server 2008 server's settings.How to accomplish this requirement with minimum efforts?Thanks

Cannot change the collation sequence of a Database in SQL Server 2008 R2


I tried two steps below separately: restricted user ran for 30 minutes then I stopped the execution; They obviously could not run simultaneously. I only want to operate at the database and not the server level. Our other key db is already in the desired collation. We'd like to have equijoins work on tables with the same collation sequences, and not have to use ETL or individual ALTERs for each table involved.

Second point: is CP1 below a 2000 only collation? That appears to be a patently false assumption in another forum posting. It appears to be a valid 2008 R2 collation is the point.

Unable to change autogrowth properties of SQL Server 2008 data and log files


I have used the GUI and the CLI to attempt to change SQL Server 2008 log file autogrowth property all to NO avail. In other words, there are NO error messages of any kind, indeed the CLI reports that the command completed successfully. But re-examining the database properties shows that NO change was effected.

For the CLI command, I have used the following with dots filled in for my database and logfile:

SQL Server 2008 R2 Installation "Server Browser" Won't Allow Password Change


I'm trying to install SQL Server 2008 R2 (the one from dreamspark) on my computer for local testing on a database app I'm working on.  For some reason when it gets to the form that handles service accounts and server collation configuration,  SQL Full-text Filter Daemon Launcher greys out the Startup Type box, and SQL Server Browser greys out the account and password boxes.  I can't figure out how to change these in any way to make the darn program install.  The help file told me to uninstall any existing SQL Server items on the computer, and to the best of my knowledge the only ones left were installed with Visual Studio 2010.

I'm using it so that I can ultimately convert a bunch of .DBF files to SQL Server files that I can import into a Windows Form App.  It's not going to be used for any kind of networking or connectivity for some time, I just need it to fuse a bunch of dbf's into a coherent VS compatible file (I've read I have to run them through Access or Excel first, which I can an will do).

Can anyone explain what's going on with this or offer a better help link than the program?  I'm completely confused by their entire set up and installation methods.

Seven reasons to care about SQL Server 2008 R2

Microsoft begins to fully realize its vision of SQL Server as an information platform and not "just" a database. Hence the main theme for this release -- at least according to Microsoft -- is self-service BI. The PowerPivot plug-ins for Excel 2010 and SharePoint 2010 are easily going to make the biggest splash of all the new features, not least because they're the most complete. But then, SQL Server 2008 R2 isn't strictly necessary for PowerPivot for Excel, which works with plenty of other data sources.

sql server 2008 adventureworks database


dear Friends

For my MCTS 70 -433 examination, I recently installed sql server 2008 and installed the sample databases too. but my issue is, in that book they have mentioned a database called "AdventureWorks2008" and the nice thing is I don't have a such a database with me in my sql server 2008. 

And the query is 

-- MERGE Statement
USE AdventureWorks2008
MERGE INTO	Sales.SalesOrderDetailHistory AS SODH
USING Sales.SalesOrderDetail AS SOD
ON SODH.SalesOrderID = SOD.SalesOrderID
AND SODH.SalesOrderDetailID = SOD.SalesOrderDetailID
INSERT (LineTotal, SalesOrderID, SalesOrderDetailID, CarrierTrackingNumber, OrderQty
, ProductID, SpecialOfferID, UnitPrice, UnitPriceDiscount
, rowguid, ModifiedDate, Cancelled)
VALUES(LineTotal, SalesOrderID, SalesOrderDetailID, CarrierTrackingNumber, OrderQty
, ProductID, SpecialOfferID, UnitPrice, UnitPriceDiscount
, rowguid, ModifiedDate, DEFAULT)
UPDATE SET SOHD.Cancelled = 'True'
OUTPUT $action , inserted.* ;	

Please help me to overcome this issue and let me know where can I download that database too.

Thanking you

happy Coding

Word Automation Issue in Windows Server 2008 Hosting



The problem I am posting here is that I was facing nearly 2 weeks around. Any body comes with this stuff please help.

Word Automation in sample ASP.NET(C#) application.

I am using Microsoft.Office.Inetrop.Word Assembly for automation. Here I am reading a XXX.dot template file and fill the contents with dynamic data.

When i am executing my code in localhost:someportnumber the automation is working fine and I could get expected result and when I am hosting in my inetmgr(Windows XP is my OS) it is also working fine.

But the problem is that when I am hosting in my production server(Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition) I am not able to perform automation and results in the following error.

Data: System.Collections.ListDictionaryInternal
Message: Word has encountered a problem.
Source: Microsoft Word

The code gets failed in the following line:

ApplicationClass wordApp = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.ApplicationClass();

Document wordDoc = wordApp.Documents.Add(ref oTemplate, ref oFalse, ref oMissing, ref oMissing); // Error in this line

I cannot able to proceed further. Can anybody please help me in solving this issue?

Thank you.

No ASPNET User in Windows Server 2008?


I have been looking everywhere online regarding this, but have not found a clear answer.


I have an ASP.Net app running on Windows Server 2008, it's basically a reporting app using Crystal Reports. I have encountered a roadblock in regards to rendering some pages. When I run the app in Visual Studio(on the same 2008 machine) everything works perfectly. Yet when I publish it and run it live the reports will not display correctly, I get a message saying Failed to render page.


I looked this error up in the Crystal Reports website and the fixes they have there refer to giving the windows "aspnet" user full access rights to certain folders on the machine. I would be happy to do this, however there is no aspnet user in Windows Server 2008.


I installed the server and set its role to be Web Server. I also checked all the options regarding ASP.Net and IIS 6 compatibility. Yet there is no ASPNET username anywhere.


Did I set the server up wrong? or do I have to do something within ASP.Net to  create this user and then give it rights? 

Not working on Windows Server 2008




I had the CSS friendly adapters working great on our old server (windows server 2003 - 32bit) and now we have moved to a 64 bit environment and now I can not get the CSS friendly adapters to work.

We are using SharePoint 2007.

Is there another work thru for 64bit environment.

I notice windows server 2008 has a directory  C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64 would I be using the browser file in this directory???

Please help!

Under the Table: Programming with FileStreams in SQL Server 2008


There's always been disagreement about whether large blobs, such as document and multimedia items, should be stored in the database or file system. In SQL Server 2008 you don't have to choose; filestream storage provides the best of both approaches.
