Errors in the back-end database access module. OLE DB reported an overflow of the data type for colu

Getting an error when processing a dimension, Errors in the back-end database access module. OLE DB reported an overflow of the data type for column 0. Errors in the OLAP storage engine: An error occurred while the 'xxxxxx' attribute of the 'Dim XXXXXX' dimension from the 'XXXXXXX' database was being processed. Content of this dimension is very similar to one that is processing no problem. The content of the dimension is one field only of type date.  The original content was imported through SSIS from a DB2 database on an iseries machine.  Thought a first the issue was because of the data contains some null values but the dimension the process OK also has some null  values.  The dimension that processes ok is also a single field of type date. Any help greatly appreciated, Roscoe

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!

Custom Entity Framework template and access to the database type

First and foremost ... I already made a few changes in the template, the most important one changing the methods generated for stored procedures with OUTPUT parameters and no resultset so that instead of instantiating a few OutputParameter objects, passing them to the method and extracting the values (all without any type checking) you just call the method with a few "out someType?" parameters so I do not need the very basics. I am totally confused by all those GlobalItem, EdmProperty, BuiltInTypeKind, TypeUsage and all this made of objects, all alike and all different though so as soon as I need more data than what's already used by the template I run into problems :-(What I would like is to change the WritePrimitiveTypeProperty() so that it outputs [StringLength(xxx)]  for all char, varchar, nchar and nvarchar properties. But I can't find a way to get from an EdmProperty in the model to the database type in the store.Can anyone help me?In case anyone is interested here's the modified stored procedure mapping code for the template. The first code replaces the original in the .tt: //////// //////// Write EntityContainer and ObjectContext Function Import methods. //////// region.Begin(GetResourceString("Template_RegionFunctionImports")); foreach (EdmFunction edmFunction in container.FunctionIm

Full database backup takes so long

Today several full database backups took so long. Normally it took 2 hours to backup. But today the 5 backups didn't finish by the end of the work day. The backups went well until yesterday. I don't know what happened overnight. Is there a performance tool embedded in SQL Server? How can I find out why the backups take so long? What could be the possible reasons? Thank you,

MSSQL 2008 R2 - database in restoring mode after backup - forever..

Hi folks,   i have this problem that occourred today with one instance of MSSQL 2008 R2 running on a WIN x64 R2 enterprise server.   i have run a backup maintainance job and now i have two databases in restoring mode for over 4hrs.   my questions are: why are these databases restoring when i was backing up? and why are they not being logged anywhere - i can not find anything on logs, activty monitor, or even Windows Resource Monitor.   i can not see any work been done by MSSQL to restore these databases, and yet they are set as 'RESTORING'.   any suggestion from the community here will be much appreciated as i am banging my head against the wall already.   thanks,   Nicolas    data warehouse | data migration | ETL/ELT | UK | http://www.brainpowered.net

need information on database backup

Hi, As a developer Ihave very minimal knowledge on database backups. Before reaching out to DBA I want to understand few things 1) I need to place a request to create new database on a SQL Server. There is around 540 GB space on this server but the two existing databases on this server already used 500GB space. So what option do we have to create new database? Is it a simple task to add another drive and allocate some space or use mapped drive? what options can I suggest DBA? 2) Also DBA mentioned that there is no space to take backup on this drive for the existsing database. What option can I suggest for backup incase if we plan to drop one of the database which is not actively used?
