restoring master database

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 

we are currently running on sql 2008 and will be moving to sql 2008 r2 on a new server.    I'm trying to restore and master database on the new server but can't get connected (started in single user mode) in management studio.    Any ideas?   There shouldn't be any other connections.   I'm remoted into the actual server and the instance name is correct.   I'm getting the following message:

 

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: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified) (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: -1)

2008 R2- Restoring MASTER database from v10.00.1600 to v10.50.1600 fails with error..

  

Hey Guys,

I backed up the master database on a machine with SQL Server 2008 version 10.00.1600. Then I turned on SQL Server in single-user mode on the new machine with SQL Server 2008 R2 version 10.50.1600 with the following command (using sqlcmd)

RESTORE DATABASE master FROM DISK = 'D:\master.bak' WITH REPLACE;

Running this command gets me the following error.....

Msg 3168, Level 16, State 1, Server U15417546, Line 1
The backup of the system database on the device D:\master.bak cannot be restored because it was created by a different version of the server (10.00.1600) than this server (10.50.1600). Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Server U15417546, Line 1
RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally.

Since i am restoring from a lower version, to a higher version, i assume the restore should be able to complete? I have not been able to find much help regarding this, so any information would be much appreciated.

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.

Restoring 2008 Database with Filestream - Process cannot access file error

  
I'm trying to restore a copy of a database that has a filestream and am getting the error below. I've tried with move option to specify a new path and left it with default path, neither worked. Did a trace with procmon, didn't see anything. FileStream1 is a new folder that the restore process creates. I've deleted the folder, tried it with a new name, re-took the backup from the source machine, restarted SQL, rebooted the machine, drive permissions are open. I've run out of ideas on how to debug further. Looking up the error online wasn't much help either. Msg 3634, Level 16, State 1, Line 1 The operating system returned the error '32(The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.)' while attempting 'OpenFile' on 'X:\Data\FileStream1\4ecb2e48-0eee-4c99-a3f0-f1e6c7f00b24\f2efe374-9481-4c1b-a7f2-dcdcee350807\0000001b-0000aaa6-00f6'.

MSSQL 2008 R2 - database in restoring mode after backup - forever..

  
Hi folks,   i have this problem that occourred today with one instance of MSSQL 2008 R2 running on a WIN x64 R2 enterprise server.   i have run a backup maintainance job and now i have two databases in restoring mode for over 4hrs.   my questions are: why are these databases restoring when i was backing up? and why are they not being logged anywhere - i can not find anything on logs, activty monitor, or even Windows Resource Monitor.   i can not see any work been done by MSSQL to restore these databases, and yet they are set as 'RESTORING'.   any suggestion from the community here will be much appreciated as i am banging my head against the wall already.   thanks,   Nicolas    data warehouse | data migration | ETL/ELT | UK | http://www.brainpowered.net

Restore database from file and reduce datafile while restoring

  

SQL 2005 Standard.

I want to restore a database from a .bak file. This bak file is referred to a database with fixed size datafile but they are bigger than I need for the new database.

Is there a way to reduce datafile size, during restore process ? I ask this because I will have to do this operation programmatically.

Thanks!


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

  

All,

 

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.
