Applying SP2 for SQL 2008

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

My company has some 2005 SQL Severs with SP3 and 2008 with SP1 applied. Now that SP4 for 2005 and SP2 for 2008 have been released, is that an option or a must to apply these new Service Packs?

Error Applying SP1 to SQL Server 2008 Standard

Has anyone seen this error when applying SP1 to SQL Server 2008 Standard Edition.  It's on a Windows 2008 SP1 Server 64 bit machine.  Here is the error:

The process cannot access the file 'C:\Windows\SysWOW64\perf-SQLSERVERAGENT-sqlagtctr10.0.1600.22.dll' because it is being used by another process.

I've tried stopping the SQL Server agent and rebooting but I'm still getting that error.  Anyone ecounter that before?  What is that dll used for?

Execute DDL Task logging disappears after applying SQL Server 2008 SP2


I am using various SSIS packages to manage different Analysis Services (SSAS) databases.  The packages create the necessary DDL for processing the dimensions and partitions in the SSAS databases and then run the DDL using Execute DDL tasks.

I've been using SSIS logging to capture the log information for the Execute DDL Tasks and directing that log data to a SQL Server table.  I've noticed that since the application of SP2 I only get the 'Started building processing schedule.' log message for the Execute DDL Tasks and none of the other event log entries.

This has happened at a couple of the sites that I support.  Install SP2 = no logging (with the one exception) from the Execute DDL Task steps.

Is this a known issue?  I did a couple of searches and didn't find anything.



"Unable to Load Client Print Control" after applying CU8 to 2008 SP1


In our environment, users are unable to Install ActiveX controls themselves. Primarily, this is particularly true in our Citrix environment. Upon applying CU8 to our 2008 SP1 SQL Server that we use to run reports, I'm no longer able to manually register the rsclientprint.dll to register the rll's and ActiveX control for users. Is this a known issue? Is there a new method to acheiving this same task?

Due to the size of our citrix environment, manually installing the activeX control through internet explorer on every one of our Citrix servers is NOT an option.

Any assistance is GREATLY appreciated.

question about applying 2008 SP1 on a active passive cluster


In the past (SS 2005), I was able to apply patches to to the virtual cluster host and it automatically detected both nodes and applied the patch.  This incurred downtime due to a reboot, but i did not care since this was a new cluster build.

Now, in 2008, the information I am finding implies that you should apply on passive node, perform a failover and then apply on other node.  

I am curious if it is still possible to apply the patch like i did for SS 2005, where I just run the install a single time from the virtual cluster host, thereby letting the installer figure out  it is a cluster and apply to both nodes?

Using Conditional Split data Transfer in SSIS 2008

This article uses the Integration Services Conditional Split Data Transformation element to filter and transfer data from a set of flat text files to SQL Server database table. The concept can be easily extended to apply to any other source or destination such as Microsoft Excel. This scenario is useful in creating denormalized database tables in a reporting and analysis situation.

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.

Building Re-Usable ASP.NET User Control and Page Libraries with VS 2008


I am having problems with a user control. I want my solution to have a separate project for holding my user controls.

The main project can get a reference to this user control project and can import this user control dll into my main project.
