Are linked servers an issue on SQL Server 2008 R2 64 bit platform?

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :
 
Recently a Microsoft employee strongly recommended not using linked servers at all.   I have a different thread on this topic which died.  However, I'd like to get feedback regarding linked servers on SQL Server 2008 R2 64 bit platforms.

SQL Server 2008 Linked Server SELECT INTO issue

  
I have a SQL Server 2008 installation running on a clustered Windows Server 2008 R2. I am trying to execute a query on a remote SQL Server to create a table. In order to do so, I call a stored procedure on the remote SQL Server. The stored procedure's description is as follows: ------------------------------------- Create procedure [dbo].[USP_RemoteExec] @varSQL varchar(max) as declare @tempSql nvarchar(max); set @tempSql = CONVERT(nvarchar(max),@varSQL); exec sp_executesql @tempSql ------------------------------------- I pass the following command to the remote stored procedure as follows: exec [servername].[dbname].dbo.USP_RemoteExecute @varSQL='if object_id(''testdb.dbo.tmp_testEmpty3'') is not null drop table testdb.dbo.tmp_testEmpty3; create table testdb.dbo.tmp_testempty3(col1 int, col2 varchar(20));' go select * from [servername].testdb.dbo.tmp_testEmpty3 go This statement returns the following: --------------------------------- col1,col2 (0 row(s) affected) But, when I run the following statement: exec [servername].[dbname].dbo.USP_RemoteExecute @varSQL='if object_id(''testdb.dbo.tmp_testEmpty'') is not null drop table testdb.dbo.tmp_testEmpty; select * into testdb.dbo.tmp_testEmpty from (select top 10 mytab.[col1] as [col1] , mytab.[col2] as [col2] , mytab.[col3] as [col3] FROM testdb.dbo.mytab as [mytab] with (nolock)) as A' go select * from [

Linked server issue on test box, post upgrade 2005 to 2008 R2

  

In an effort to do some testing prior to upgrading our environment to 2008 R2, I made a test instance on our Dev box.  2005 instance, copied as many things as I could think of from various other instances.  Made a basic linked server to our main cluster, had a repeating job to email me results of a query across that link every few hours.

 

Everything was working fine until the upgrade finished.  It completed at ~7pm.  The email at 6PM came through fine (while the upgrade was in progress), the email at 8pm didn't come through.  Checked various things (DB mail was still working, tested fine).  It couldn't access the data across the linked server.  I tried deleting that link and remaking it.  Errors out.  Tried running the same scripts we use to create our standard linked servers, error out.  The only ones that I can set up and function are links to other instances on the same box.

I've looked around at other fixes for this error message and none seem to make any difference.  Log in with Domain cred's, log in with the sa account, no difference.  I can connect from other instances & servers back to this one, just not outbound from this one.  And it worked prior to the upgrade I applied to it.  All other instances on the box are 2005 as well.

Here is the message I ge

Issue with linked server 2008 (and R2) not an issue in 2005

  

Hi,

I have been using SQL 2005 successfully to connect to tables in a 10g Oracle data warehouse. I have been using the 11g client.

I have tried several times to get this working in SQL Server 2008 (and R2) and have tried the 10g and 11g clients...

I do a query like Select top 100 * from DWD..DW.IC_TRAN_PND and I get the error: 

"Invalid data for type "numeric".

 

I have read about the reasons for this but is there a way to make it work like it does in SQL server 2005?

Word Automation Issue in Windows Server 2008 Hosting

  

Hi,

The problem I am posting here is that I was facing nearly 2 weeks around. Any body comes with this stuff please help.

Word Automation in sample ASP.NET(C#) application.

I am using Microsoft.Office.Inetrop.Word Assembly for automation. Here I am reading a XXX.dot template file and fill the contents with dynamic data.

When i am executing my code in localhost:someportnumber the automation is working fine and I could get expected result and when I am hosting in my inetmgr(Windows XP is my OS) it is also working fine.

But the problem is that when I am hosting in my production server(Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition) I am not able to perform automation and results in the following error.

Data: System.Collections.ListDictionaryInternal
Message: Word has encountered a problem.
Source: Microsoft Word

The code gets failed in the following line:

ApplicationClass wordApp = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.ApplicationClass();

Document wordDoc = wordApp.Documents.Add(ref oTemplate, ref oFalse, ref oMissing, ref oMissing); // Error in this line

I cannot able to proceed further. Can anybody please help me in solving this issue?

Thank you.

No Servers listed under Database Engine in SQL Server 2008 on Windows Server 2008 R2.

  
Where to begin. It's late so I hope I can be clear. I have installed SQL Server 2008. I am running Windows Server 2008 R2. I have installed SQL Server four times and I continue to have issues connecting to the Database Engine. Installation has gone without a problem at least to my knowledge I have not been presented with any errors. I have also created a local administrator account called "spadmin" to use to connect to the SQL Server database and to use with SharePoint 2010. Which brings me to the reason why I want to run SQL Server - I want to evaluate the latest SharePoint Server 2010 and WSS. Unfortunately, I have not been able to go beyond installing SQL Server and connecting to the database, because there is no database instance showing under the Database Engine, except under Integration Services. I have the following services installed: SQL Acitivey Directory Helper Service SQL Full-text-Filder Daemon Launcher SQL Server SQL Server Agent SQL Server Analysis Service SQL Server Browser SQL Server Integration Services 10.0 SQL Server Reporting Services SQL Server VSS Writer Am I missing something? I have been following several online instructions on how to install SQL Server 2008 and I can't seem to find where I may have gone wrong. After I install SQL Server 2008 am I supposed to see the default instance (MSSQLSERVER) listed under the Database Eng

Deadlock issue in SQL Server 2008 R2 (.Net 2.0 Application)

  
The Sql Server 2008 R2 instance in question is a heavy load OLTP production server. The deadlock issue came up a few days back and is still unresolved. We received the Xml deadlock report that listed the stored procedures involved in the deadlock and some other details. I'll try to list down the facts from this xml first: Two stored procedures are involved in the deadlock, say SP1 and SP2. According to the report SP1 was running in Isolation level "Serializable" and SP2 was running in "ReadCommitted" . We have investigated the following: Are we setting IsolationLevel of SP1 to "Serializable" inside SP or in Code? - No. Is any other SP whose IsolationLevel is "Serializable" calling SP1? - No. Are the table used by SP1 called by any other SP that has Isolation Level as "Serializable"? - Yes. There are SPs that have Isolation Level set to "Serializable" and access the same tables as SP1, but we don't know whether they were running at the time of deadlock or not as the deadlock report only showed SP1 and SP2. Lines of thought: We have considered the following possible causes: Deadlock is occurring because SP1 is running as "Serializable". - Why is this SP running in Serializable when I haven't set it? Is the Isolation level escalating (like locks do)? If we figure this out and make it run as ReadCom

Win server 2003+ Sharepoint 2007+SQL Server 2008 ,reports view issue?

  

I hope someone may shed some light on a serious obstacle encountered on a client site:

We have implemented a SharePoint integrated report services solution for the client on a single server

Server = Windows 2003

SQL = 2008

MOSS 2007

Web application = servername:8888 (default) - windows auth

Web application extension 1 servername:8889 (extranet) forms auth

Web application extension 2 servername:8887 (intranet) forms auth

Reports are visible and can be run (renders) on internal sites

However, there is an external site which allows users to access the reports - the issue is, the reports then dont run and I get this:

"An unexpected error occurred while connecting to the report server. Verify that the report server is available and configured for SharePoint integrated mode."

Though I have not actually seen the firewall config of the AAM, the client assures me it has been setup properly.

If the AAM is setup correctly, what could be the problem? The server is clearly available and confgured in SharePoint integrated mode.

 

has anyone experienced the scenario where clients want to publish their reports on an external site? What can one do to see any errors other than the one line message (tried enabling custom errors, but no good)


Linked Server UPDATE issue

  

Hello forum,

I'm doing a simple data load between two linked servers, and everything is working fine until I include an UPDATE statement, that's when I receive the following error message.

OLE DB provider "SQLNCLI10" for linked server "ServerName" returned message "The partner transaction manager has disabled its support for remote/network transactions.".

Msg 7391, Level 16, State 2, Line 28

The operation could not be performed because OLE DB provider "SQLNCLI10" for linked server "ServerName" was unable to begin a distributed transaction.


the Distribute Transaction Coordinator service is running on all machines, and I'm able to do INSERTs between the two servers. Here is a part of the code I'm using. It works fine if I don't include the UPDATE.

Issue when migrating Reporting service reports from SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2008

  

Hi Friends,

We are migrating reporting service reports from SQL server 2005 to SQL Server 2008 and facing below login issue.

We got a virtual machine with 2003 server and got SQL Server 2008 installed with reporting service.

I was able to publish my 2005 reports using VS 2005 easily.


1) But when I try to run the reports I am getting below errors at my website home page.

The permissions granted to user 'DomainName\MachineName' are insufficient for performing this operation. (rsAccessDenied)

I could not get why there is no user name in above error and how it says machine name does not have permissioin?

There should be at least some user id mentioned as per me.

What could be the reason of above error?

2) Also when I try to run reports using Reports website (i.e. http://server/Reports URL), I get below errro in executing the reports.

"An error has occurred during report processing. (rsProcessingAborted)
Cannot create a connection to data source 'ReportSource'. (rsErrorOpeningConnection)
Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON'."

Here the question is how it is picking up Anonymous logon. I thought it might be using Network Sevice acct to access reports.

What should I be doing to resolve above errors?

3) Also one more point about the s
