SSL Certificate not shown up in Protocols for MSSQLServer for SQL Server 2008 R2

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 23, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

I had imported SSL certificate through MMC to local computer account and the certificate reflected in the ‘Protocols for MSSQLServer’. Encryption worked fine with the certificate.

Then I deleted certificate from local computer store and imported again (through MMC). But no certificates are shown in Microsoft Configuration Manager. I am not able to add certificate to SQL Server.

I followed the steps in the below URLs



Can someone help?

Report Server Instance not shown in SQL 2008 R2 version for Configuration Manager



I am using Windows Server 2003. I have installed SQL Server 2005 and SQL 2008 R2 version in the machine. The sql server 2008 R2 version has the instance name as SQL2008R2

I am trying to configure "Reporting services Configuration Manager" for the SQL 2008 r2. I gave the machine name and hit the Find button, I am not able to get the Report server instance name.

But when I gave the server name, i am able to browse to the folders page in the Internet explorer. so the server is available . I gave like this in the IE, and I am able to see the page:

http://Server IP/Reports_SQL2008R2/Pages/Folder.aspx

In the eventvwr, I found the following errror "The Drive:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSRS10_50.SQL2008R2\Reporting Services\ReportServer\RSReportServer.config file failed to load. This error may occur if the XML is not valid. "

How to get the Report server instance name in the configuration manager.

Thank you

System.DirectoryServices.Protocols problem after upgrading to Windows Server 2008 R2

Hopefully this is the correct forum...

I have a block of code (VB.NET) for creating connection object for an OpenLDAP directory that looks something like

_OL = New LdapDirectoryIdentifier(DirectoryServer, PortNumber, True, False)
_Conn = New LdapConnection(_OL)
_Conn.SessionOptions.SaslMethod = "GSSAPI"
_Conn.SessionOptions.ProtocolVersion = 3
_Conn.SessionOptions.Sealing = True
_Conn.SessionOptions.SspiFlag = _Conn.SessionOptions.SspiFlag Or &H10 'auth-conf
_Conn.Timeout = New TimeSpan(0, 20, 0) ' 20 minutes
_Conn.AuthType = AuthType.Negotiate

On a Windows Server 2008 computer, this block of code gives me an ldapconnection object
On a Windows Server 2008 R2 computer, this block of code throws an exception when attempting to set the SaslMethod property (Also tried setting to "SIMPLE", "GSS-SPNEGO" or "EXTERNAL")

Not very helpfully, the error message states simply "An unknown authentication error occurred" Error code = 86 in System.DirectoryServices.Protocols.LdapSessionOptions.SetStringValueHelper(LdapOption option, String value)

I have matched as much as possible except for OS version. Same .NET Framework version, same processor, same Windows edition

Any suggestions?

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

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?

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.
