SQL2008 error on restore databse (database is in use) error 3010


We have to do a lot of restore from backups for a development on a production sql 2008 server.

This daily job or by request job will have 3 steps.

Step 1 kill the user that was using such @dbname

declare killprocess_cursor cursor for
select a.spid from sysprocesses a join
sysdatabases b on a.dbid=b.dbid where b.name=@dbname


Step 2 Restore database, from a fixed path using a T-Sql

RESTORE DATABASE db_abc FROM DISK = 'H:\RestoreDB\db_abc_FullBK.bak' with replace

Step 3 restore users


Sometimes the daily job will fail at 2. The by request job will fail at 1.

I am concern with daily job failure now. Error message:

Executed as user: myDomain\myISAgentAcct. Exclusive access could not be obtained because the database is in use. [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 3101)  RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally. [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 3013).  The step failed.


When I use sp_who2, there is none using the db and rerun result with the same error. I have to take it offline, detach, attach again and rerun the job to finish it without error.


What bugs me... the job will run for in most days and fail in other. I already has a kill user step and no one works at the schedule night time.

My last suspicion... either Report service has a hold on

ERROR [HY000] [Informix .NET provider][Informix]Database locale information mismatch


Hi, there is an upgrade to my infimacs server and my web application encounter this error after the infimacs is upgraded.

Below is the information on the server before/after the upgrade.

Before            After

Solaris 8      Solaris 10

IDS 9.40     IDS 11.50

The web server where the web application hosted is running IBM Informix Connect 2.81. There is no such error before the upgrade is done.

As a developer, i have IBM Informix Client-SDK 2.90 installed on my local pc and debug the page where the read is needed from infimacs but no such error found.

The error come out only when it is hosted on the web server where IBM Informix Connect 2.81 is installed.

I have gone through many articles and it suggest me to set the environement  variable in the server :  DB_LOCALE=en_us.819.

I haven't try this solution but i think that this might not be the best solution.

Is it possible to to to have this settin

How to fix error in MVC movie database tutorial from Asp.net?


I followed the tutorial at http://www.asp.net/mvc/videos/creating-a-movie-database-application-in-15-minutes-with-aspnet-mvc At 12:04 in the video, the author,  Stephen Walther. inclues the line

SQL2008 - Cannot Restore a new database from a full backup of a different one, database in use

I am trying to restore a brand new database from a copy of another one and am encountering an error message stating: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlError: The file <Backup source database file location> cannot be overwritten.  It is being used by database <Backup Source Database>. (Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo) I am running the Restore procedure with the REPLACE option and am wondering why it is stating that the source database is the database in use when I am trying to restore and overwrite a completely different database. This issue happens when running the replace both in C# using SMO and when manually restoring with SqlServer Management Studio Interesting note is, the original source database is created / deployed using a database project within VisualStudios 2010 and then deployed to SqlServer through VisualStudios. Any thoughts on why this is happening? Thanks in advance for any help!

Login to SQL, using Windows 7, SQL Server Error 18452, "Login failed. The login is from an untrusted

I have a File/Sharing Server which is Server 2008 SP2 and SQL Server 2008 is installed on it. My system which is on the same workgroup, was running Windows 2003 Server, which I have saved Server 2008 login credential on it and used that credential to login to SQL Server on Server 2008 system in Windows Authentication mode using SQL management studio. Recently I installed Windows 7 on that system, and I have also saved that Server 2008 credential in Windows 7 Credential Manager. The problem is here when I want to login in Windows Authentication mode using SQL management studio like past, and I will get below Error: Cannot connect to [SERVER] Login failed. The login is from an untrusted domain and cannot be used with Windows authentication. (.Net SqlClient Data Provider) Error Number: 18452 Severity: 14 State: 1 Line Number: 65536 I tried that registry solution (DisableLoopbackCheck=0x01 this thread), but no luck with that. I have checked the outgoing packets when I click on connect, and I found out that SQL management studio tried to send my local windows credential instead of Server 2008 saved credential. I don't want to login in SQL Mode, and also I don't want to convert my server to Domain controller. Is there any other solution with this issue? Regards

Database login set up issue

Hi folks, I have more than one domains trusted each other, one user has already been granted access in the server, but I don't see it using Exec  xp_logininfo. I even tried adding the user as sysadmin. no problem for most of other users from the same domain. For another user, when I run the Exec  xp_logininfo, it returns: Msg 15404, Level 16, State 11, Procedure xp_logininfo, Line 62 Could not obtain information about Windows NT group/user 'INTL\RTxie', error code 0x534. what happened to these two accounts? is it a SQL issue or Active Directory issue? That domain has 15000 accounts across over 100 domain controllers. my domain has roughly the same amount users. they are trusted each other under same forest. Thank you in advance.

MDW Disk Usage for Database Report Error - A data source has not been supplied for the data source D

Hello, On the MDW Disk Usage Collection Set report, I get the following error when I click on a database hyperlink. A data source has not been supplied for the data source DS_TraceEvents SQL profiler shows the following SQL statements are executed (I've replaced the database name with databaseX) 1. exec sp_executesql N'SELECT dtb.name AS [Name] FROM master.sys.databases AS dtb WHERE (dtb.name=@_msparam_0)',N'@_msparam_0 nvarchar(4000)',@_msparam_0=N'databaseX' this returns zero rows as databaseX does not exist on my MDW central server, but is a database on a target server (i.e. one that is being monitored and uploaded into the MDW central server). 2. USE [datatbaseX] this produces the following error: Msg 911, Level 16, State 1, Line 1 Database 'databaseX' does not exist. Make sure that the name is entered correctly. why is the report looking for the database on my server? thanks Jag Environment: MDW (Management Data Warehouse) on SQL 2008 R2

Error 952 Database is in Transition

One of our SQL 2005 database started to give us "Database is in transition...Error 952". We were trying to Take the DB offline when this problem occurred. Restarting SQL service did not help us. We were unable to do anything with this database as we were unable to obtain any locks. What resolved the problem? Re-starting manamgement studio on client machine. Go Figure!

I have SQL'08r2x64 freshly installed on a WS'03r2x64sp2 box and WS is also a DC (sorry).  Previously, there was a SQL'05sp3 installation on this box and it worked splendito.  I used the SQL'05 for some minor devel and to host a Backup Exec 11D db/installation; it all was splendito.   Then, i removed SQL'05&BE11D to prepare for an upgrade of this arrangement.  Next, i installed said SQL'08 to be the foundation for a planned Backup Exec 12.5 install.  To date, I can't get to a clean install of SQL'08 and thus have not progressed to installing BE12.5.  I now have this painfully annoying situation (as i've been beating on it for 2 days) where a series of errors occur during boot: 1st: srmSvc; Event ID 12317; File Server Resource Manager failed to enumerate share paths or DFS paths.  Mappings from local file paths to share and DFS paths may be incomplete or temporarily unavailable.  FSRM will retry the operation at a later time. 2nd & 3rd (occurs twice): MsSQL$buExpressSQL; Event ID 18456; Login failed for user 'BOWMAN\ExecSQL'.
