Database Dropped - But no log entry

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :

Environment: SQL Server 2008 SP1 Enterprise 64 bit

Server: Windows 2008 R2 64 bit

A database was dropped. There is no entry in SQL Server logs. I have looked at other related posts on this form regarding entries in sql log when a database is dropped.

Apart from creating user triggers to monitor the databases, I was wondering if there is any place where database being dropped can be caught.

Thank you.

Monitoring a database entry

Hi, I am  building a web application in which when I create an entry, I need to monitor a status for 10 minutes. I am not sure how I can achieve this?  I am entring the data to database as soon as the user creates the entry. I can obviously use a trigger to see if the status has been updated. But how can I get the database to check the entry 10 minutes after it has been created? I would really appreciate some useful feedback. Thanks 

Dropped Distribution database



Got a problem. I have a replication that was created and then deleted. Not properly!

I believe subscriptions were deleted, then Agent jobs, then most importantly *Distribution db was dropped*. Replication was set up on a test copy of db. There is nothing going on in the db. So growing log is not an issue.

Problem is that when I right click on Replication option in SQL Server, "Configure Distribution" option doesn't even come up. So, I can't set up a new replication on this server.


What are my options? Is there a way to delete this replication manually?





The database principal owns a service in the database, and cannot be dropped.


I try to drop a user from the database, but the system said the user own some service and cannot drop it. I have deleted all schema of the user(but it seems not the case ____ the error message said it own some 'services' not 'schema'). And I have try to search what service it own by the command and it shows nothing.

select s.name as ServiceName
from    sys.database_principals p
        inner join sys.services s on p.principal_id = s.principal_id
where p.name = 'user'

How can I solve the problem?

Could not locate entry in sysdatabases for database


I had SQL Server 2005 on my pc and had created a few databases through it. Due to some problem, I had to reinstall it but now when i give the command "create database mydb" it says

"Cannot create file 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\DATA\myDb.mdf' because it already exists. Change the file path or the file name, and retry the operation."

And when i give "use mydb" command it says

Could not locate entry in sysdatabases for database 'mydb'. No entry found with that name. Make sure that the name is entered correctly.

What should I do so that it can locate my databases?


Multiple database support with Entity Framework

One of the features introduced in Entity Framework is being database independent. Which mean each database provider can support Entity Framework by implementing its provider.

This feature allows you build applications independent from the underplaying database provider. In this post I'm going to show how to build an application that support multiple databases using same conceptual model made by Entity Framework.

Export Visio Database Table Names to Excel

If you use the Enterprise Architect edition of Microsoft Visio for data modeling regularly, then there is a good chance that at some point you've wanted to export just the table names into Excel.

SQL Server Database Transaction

A transaction is a group of SQL commands executed together as a single component of work to be accomplished. If all of these commands succeed, then a transaction is committed - the changes to the data are made final. If any of the commands within a transaction fail, then the entire transaction is cancelled, or in SQL Server terms, the transaction will be rolled back.

Transactions are one of the things that keep your data safe, but they're not necessarily easy to understand. Here's some help:

Reading and Writing Images From a Windows Mobile Database using UltraLite 10(C#)

Periodically I get a request for information on how to read and write binary data to a database running on Windows Mobile. If you search the Internet you can typically find examples that are available on Windows Desktops or allow you to read and write to a local file system. The problem is that it can take a bit of work to get this code to work on Windows Mobile accessing a database.

Ultimately you might be asking, why would I want to store and image in a database? Well in an environment where you synchronizing data between a local mobile database and a consolidated (central) database this can be extremely useful. Imagine if an insurance adjuster went to an accident scene, took a picture of a damaged car, loaded it into his Windows Mobile database and then replicated that image up to the Insurance headquarters for approval. All of this could be done in a very short period of time when using images in the database. Another good example might be a doctor who was waiting for a patient chart to become available. If you could store the image in a database this chart could be sent down to the doctor's device once it became available.

For this article I am not going to get into how to synchronize the images to and from a remote and central database as this is typically fairly straightforward when using a data synchronization technologies like MobiLink
