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
WHEN NOT MATCHED BY TARGET THEN
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)
WHEN NOT MATCHED BY SOURCE THEN
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

happy Coding

Can not connect to user instance of SQL Server 2008 Express with Advance Services in Visual Studio 2

  
I used SQL Server 2008 Express with Advanced Services (not SQL Server 2008 Express) in Visual Studio 2010 because it is the fast and easy way to developed and managed data-driven applications with powerful built-in reporting and full-text search functionality. I received Sql Server 2008 Service Pack 1 with Windows Update. It's ok if I connect to instance of SQL Server 2008 Express with Advance Services (with SP1) through SQL Server Management, but if I try to attach a database in Server Explorer (Visual Studio 2010), I get the following error: "Failed to generate a user instance of SQL Server due to a failure in starting the process for the user instance. The connection will be closed." I'm stuck at this point. Is there a fix or a workaround? I've already tried deleting the 'C:\Users\Administrtor\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Data\SQLEXPRESS' directory as mentioned in other posts, with no luck. The error.log at 'C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Data\SQLEXPRESS\error.log' has the following relevant entries: 2010-09-01 14:44:10.47 Server      Error: 17156, Severity: 16, State: 1. 2010-09-01 14:44:10.47 Server      initeventlog: Could not initiate the EventLog Service for the key '3677F6D3-17C7-4F', last error code is 2. 2010-09-01 14:44:10.47 Server &

Can't connect to SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services

  
When attempting to connect to SQL Server 2008 (evaluation) on Windows XP SP3, using the following url, http://servername:8080/ReportServer I receive a popup dialog box asking me for a user name and password to connect to the server.  When I enter the domain\user and password that I think it should be, it pops up two more times and then displays a blank internet explorer web page.  It is a fresh install and I believe I have everything running correctly.   Any input or guidance would be extremely appreciated.   Thank you in advance.

Analysis Services 2008 R2 Deployment - very frequent database overwrites

  
When regularly deploying an Analysis Services project from Visual Studio / BIDS to Analysis Services 2008 R2, the database must frequently be overwritten - on almost any change. For example, after a successful deploy and process, a seemingly minor change is made (e.g. changing the FormatString property for an existing Measure, or Arrange Tables in the Data Source View), and the next deploy and process attempt triggers the message: The 'ZZZ' database on 'ZZZ' has changed since the last time the project was deployed. If you proceed with deployment, the database will be overwritten. Would you like to continue? With earlier versions of SQL, this only occurred rarely, e.g. when deploying to a stale server. The impact is that testing almost any change requires a complete re-process of the database. Is anyone else striking this issue?  Thanks Mike

SQL Server 2008 R2 \ Analysis Services Purchasing

  
If a person wants to experience with Analysis Services (not as a trial) for his personal use, does it mean that the cheapest way is to purchase a "SQL Server Standard" license for $898?

http://www.microsoft.com/sqlserver/2008/en/us/pricing.aspx

Another option is ($2,607.55):

http://store.microsoft.com/microsoft/SQL-Server-2008-R2-Standard-Edition-32-bit-10-Client-Access-Licenses-/product/99B2882D

Is there a way to get a cheaper version of Analysis Services + SQL Server (maybe along with free versions such as "SQL Server Compact" and "SQL Server Express")?

Thanks!

SQL Server 2008 R2 Analysis Services - Syncronization Speed Issues

  

We are experiencing a severe performance issue when syncronizing cubes using R2. We have 2 sets of machines that we are experiencing varied performance and speed when syncronizing cubes.

Test Server Pair 1
---------------------------------- 
Dell R710, 72GB Ram, 2 drives in Raid 1 (OS), 4 drives in Raid 10 (Cube and DB Storage) - This is the source server
Dell R900, 256GB Ram, 2 Drives in Raid 1 (OS), 3 Drives in Raid 5 (Cubes & Storage) - Server recieving sync updates

These servers are running Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise and SQL Server 2008 SP1 CU9 Enterprise (64bit). The performance of the cube syncronization is slow but manageable.

Test Server Pair 2
---------------------------------- 
Dell R710, 96GB Ram, 2 drives in Raid 1 (OS), 4 drives in Raid 10 (Cube and DB Storage) - This is the source server
Dell R910, 256GB Ram, 2 Drives in Raid 1 (OS), 14 Drives in Raid 10 (Cubes & Storage) - Server recieving sync updates

These servers are running Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise and SQL Server 2008 R2 CU2 Enterprise (64bit). This pair of servers running SQL 2008 R2 syncronize very slowly.  The process about 70-80 percent slower than the first pair. Our cubes that we syncronize are very large in size (some are 500-800GB in size) and for that reason con

How to connect Oracle Database in Microsoft Analysis Services

  
Hi All,

I am not able to connect oracle database from MS-Analysis Services.


All my Fact tables and Dimension tables are residing on Oracle
database.Both the Oracle database and MS Analysis Services are on the
same server.


I am working on the node and I was able to create the datasource using
"Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Oracle " and the test connection also
succedded but while creating the cubes using the cube wizard it throws
error saying " Connection to the data source Failed".

Any one could help me in this regards.

What are the ways to connect the oracle DB from MS Analysis Services.

Is this problem becoz of any permission settings, how do I give permissions for the users.

Regards
Saravanavel


Running licensed SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services with SQL Server Express editon?

  

Hi,

We have a SQL Server 2008 Standard Edition. We've also installed Analysis Services and are using cubes.

Is it possible to have the Analysis Services on another server, to take some of the load of the "relation engine" server?

Do we need a relation engine on this server? Will SQL express be sufficient for this?

 

Thank you,

Marcel


Unable to connect to SQL Server 2008 R2 Database without being admin of the machine

  

I am receiving the following error when I try to connect to my new SQL Server 2008 R2 machine:

 

Msg 18452, Level 14, State 1, Server <server name>, Line 1 Login failed. The login is from an untrusted domain and cannot be used with Windows authentication.

I'm running the following command to test the connection:

sqlcmd -S<Server Name> -E -Q"Select @@servername"

On the server I'm getting the following from the SQL Server logs

 

03/31/2011 20:31:58,Logon,Unknown,Login failed. The login is from an untrusted domain and cannot be used with Windows authentication. [CLIENT: 172.20.146.95]

03/31/2011 20:31:58,Logon,Unknown,Error: 17806<c/> Severity: 20<c/> State: 2.

What is odd is if I put the domain user in as Admin of the machine then it connects just fine.  I have tried just about everything I can find and I just cannot get it to work. Anyone have any clues???

 


2 Node Clustered SQl 2008 Sql Server Agent & Analysis Services Fail on only one node

  

Hi,

Until recently this worked ok, however now on one of the 2 nodes if I fail over SQL all of the services start, on the other node, Sql Server Agent & Analysis Services will not come on line. I have checked some of the other links suggestiing fixes but they dont seem to apply. On the Node where it fails you get an error 53 for the server agent the Analysis Services fails with Generic service 'Analysis Services' could not be brought online (with error '1060') during an attempt to open the service.  Possible causes include: the service is either not installed or the specified service name is invalid.

attached is the details from the Sql Log

SQL Server Analysis Services 2008 and SPSS

  

Hi,

I've recently been approached to assist in some statistical analysis of customer survey data. The team doing the analysis is trained in statistical mathematics and their newest member has a wealth of experience with tools such as SPSS and Minitab. She is keen to purchase a statistical analysis tool to perform trend analysis, exception analysis, pattern analysis etc. and has asked if we have such a tool that could do the same job for a lot less dollars.

My question is, can you perform the same analysis in Analysis Services. Excel or Reporting Services as you can in purpose built statisical analysis packages? Are there models pre-built which can be added to the Microsoft tools set to assist?

OLAP: Build an OLAP Reporting App in ASP.NET Using SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services and Office XP

  

Many organizations analyze their business-critical data using Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) technology. OLAP-based data mining provides a way to query multidimensional data sets and drill down into the data to find patterns. ASP.NET and the Microsoft Office Web Components (OWC) enable Web-based OLAP reporting. The OWC controls include PivotTable and Chart components that can be embedded in a Web page and scripted by programmers. In this article, the authors build a Web-based OLAP reporting app using ASP.NET, OWC, and SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services to illustrate the process.
