database size limit about SQL Server 2005 Express

I know that there is a size limit (4 GB) for SQL Server 2005 Express, but I am not quite sure if the limit is applied for only ONE database data file or for ALL the database data, suppose I have two databases DB1 and DB2, so which of the following statement is correct? A. The size limit for DB1 is 4GB, and the size limit for DB2 is also 4GB, so if DB1 is 3G and DB2 is 3.5G,that will be OK. B. The total size for both DB1 and DB2 can not be larger than 4GB, which means if DB1 is 3G, then DB2 can not be large than 1G.

Multiple XML files into SQL SERVER Express 2005

Hello. I am familiar with classic ASP and use this with MS SQL SERVER EXPRESS. I have an SQL table and want to import multiple XML files into this on a daily basis. I currently have 3 files, transferdata.vbs which loops through the XML files. FAQschema.xml which maps XML to the SQL database and test.xml shows the xml in the test file. If I run transferdata.vbs I get the following error "Error opening the data file" line 33 char 3. Microsoft Bulkload for SQL Server". My SQL table is called EnqOrd id (int), Debitor (varchar), PurchaseDate (varchar)     transferdata.vbs set objBL = CreateObject("SQLXMLBulkLoad.SQLXMLBulkLoad") objBL.ConnectionString = "Provider=SQLOLEDB; Data Source=XXXXXX\XXXXX; Initial Catalog=XXXX; User ID=XXXXX; Password=XXXXXX" objBL.ErrorLogFile = "E:\fuelsql\Teccom\error.log" ' Here is the path to your XML files Const path = "E:\fuelsql\Teccom\XML\" Dim Text, Title, oFile Dim fso, oFolder, oFiles, wsh ' Object variables Text = "Folder " Title = "XML Files" Set wsh = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell") ' Create FileSystemObject object to access the file system. Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") ' Get Folder object. Set oFolder = fso.GetFolder(wsh.ExpandEnvironmentStrings(path)) ' Get All Files Set oFiles = oFolder.

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. Hardware used: HP Proliant Server (DL580) with additional SCSI interface card HP StorageWorks LTO 4 tapedriv

SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack 3 (KB955706) update is successful but repeats installin

  Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack 3 (KB955706) (update 1 of 1) This update seems to be stuck in a loop of installing, each time it successfull installs acccording to automatic updates. Then says it requires installing again straight away. This has been happening for 10 days now. I have tried a manual update from the website rather than automatic updates, no change. Any ideas why? Have posted in Windows update which is where I think the problem lies but they have suggested I post here also.

SQL Server Express 2005 SP3 Bootstrapper

Hi Guys,I am currently in the process of creating a bootstrapper for SQL2005 Express SP3 so I can slip it into a Visual Studio 2008 setup project.Here's what I did:1) I copied the SqlExpress-SP2 folder (C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A\Bootstrapper\Packages\SqlExpress) into a new folder (C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A\Bootstrapper\Packages\SqlExpressSP3)2) I replaced the eula.txt and sqlexpr32.exe with the new SP3 ones.3) I changed the following in product.xml:<Product xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/developer/2004/01/bootstrapper" ProductCode="Microsoft.Sql.Server.Express.9.3">4) I changed the following in package.xml:<PackageFile Name="sqlexpr32.exe" HomeSite="SqlExprExeSP3" PublicKey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    <Strings>        <String Name="DisplayNam

Which SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack to Install?

I have Windows 2008 Small Business Server Standard Edition.  When I scan for updates I get two different SQL service packs showing up, with the same KB955706 number.  I'm wondering which I should install, or if both, what order to install them in?  The first one is labeled: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack 3 The second one is labeled: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition with Advanced Services Service Pack 3 For applications, I have Blackbaud The Financial Edge v7.78 (accounting package for clubs) installed that uses SQL Server 2005 Express Edition for its database engine.  The new upgrade for this software requires SP3 which is why I need to know which service pack to install.  Also, please let me know if there are any tricks to getting the service packs installed on 2008 SBS Standard Edition.  I know sometimes registry settings need to be changed for SQL service packs to be installed properly. Thank you for your help.  

Connection to SQL Server 2005 Express?

Hi all, I've been reading other posts for awhile now and I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. I'm a Web Developer and not a DBA. I have SQL Server 2005 Express installed on my machine and it's working just fine. I also have the Management Studio Express CTP installed and working. I'm trying to connect to a database using a username and password (from ColdFusion Server which is working fine for external Oracle and Access databases, so that's not an issue), so I set up the server to allow mixed mode authentication. I can log in to the Management Studio using Windows authentication OR the username and password without any issues. I have TCP/IP enabled in the Configuration Manager and enabled. This seems like a ridiculous question, but I need to know the servername, port, username and password to connect to the database. I'm trying all combinations of things but nothing's working. If I put in as the server, 1433 as the port, and use the username and password that worked in Management Studio I get this: java.sql.SQLException: [Macromedia][SQLServer JDBC Driver]Error establishing socket. Connection refused: connect The root cause was that: java.sql.SQLException: [Macromedia][SQLServer JDBC Driver]Error establishing socket. Connection refused: connect If I use MACHINENAME\SQLEXPRESS I get this: java.sql.SQLException: [Macromedia][SQLServer
