Unable to start T-SQL debugging SQL Server 2008

I'm getting exactly the same problem described here: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sqltools/thread/dcc851e7-35d7-492a-b15c-7dffe47110ed --------------------------- Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio --------------------------- Unable to start T-SQL Debugging.

Lastly (not sure if this is useful or not) I tried attaching to the Ssms.exe process from Visual Studio 2008 and I get the following output when I try debugging:  ...

Unable to start debugging on the web server. The IIS worker process for the launched URL is not curr


Unable to start debugging on the web server. The IIS worker process for the launched URL is not currently running.

I'm running Windows 7 64 bit, VS 2008 sp1.

When I first try to debug I get the error msg above.  I wait a few minutes (presumably some service is starting) and debugging will start but no breakpoints are recognized.

Some of the things I've tried:

Changing the binding of my site from a static IP to "*".

Enabled windows authentication.

made sure localhost = in the hosts file.

The website was built under windows xp and whatever version of IIS ships with xp.  My web config has no errors that I know of but might be missing something required for iis 7 (??)

Cannot start SQL Server Agent service on Cluster , 2008 R2



I'm testing a two node cluster installation on windows 2008 r2 and sql server 2008 r2 both enterprise before a production deployment and my only issue so far is that the SQl Server Agent service cannot be started.

The failover works fine, the cluster and SQL services changes nodes without any problem but on both nodes i cannot start that service.

I'm using a domain user for the service, member of the local admin and sysadmin on the SQL server itself.

The error i get when i click on start from SQL management console is:

Unable to start service SQLAGENT$SQLTEST on server SERVERNAME. (mscorlib)

Unable to enum ManagedComputer.Services & Stop/Start SQL Agent service from ASP.NET app

Hi guys

I have some code that stops/starts the SQL Server Agent service from within our ASP.NET web application.  Runs fine in development but doesn't in release - I suspect due to rights: Dev has admin rights, whereas Prod is running under a IIS application pool identity which is a domain account (e.g. IUSR_WEBAPP).

In Production it doesn't return any ManagedComputer.Services - ManagedComputer.Services.Count = 0. It doesn't throw any exceptions or anything, just not return any services or allow me to access the specific SQL Agent instance that I want to.

I've tried granting access in various places including WMI but nothing seems to work.  I cannot figure out what rights might be needed.

How can I grant access to my application pool account so that it can enumerate services and stop/start my specific SQL Agent account instance for 2005/2008?

Many thanks

Install on New Windows7 - Getting Invalid SQL Server Agent credentials

Hi: I have a Developer License for MSSQL Server 2008.  Have just upgraded to Windows 7 Professional Edition.  When installing MS SQL Server, the setup shows that I have an instance of SQL Server Express already installed.  I am given a choice between Default Instance and Named Instance.  First time I chose named instance and then used the name of my machine - RBS1.  I received the following message:  The credentials you provided for the SQL Server Agent service are invalid. To continue, provide a valid account and password for the SQL Server Agent service. Went back and tried Default instance and got same answer.  Can't proceed to install.  Any help in this greatly appreciated. roger
