sql 2005 sp2 memory error FAIL_VIRTUAL_RESERVE

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
We're running SQL Server 2005 SP (9.00.4035.00) 32 bit on Windows Server 2008 SP2 Enterprise.   The server has 8gb of RAM and is only used for SQL Server.  Since Windows 2008 SP2 was installed on 8/23/2009, once every week or so the server has become unresponsive.  Early in in the course of the problem I notice the following error in the SQL Server error log:  Failed Virtual Allocate Bytes: FAIL_VIRTUAL_RESERVE 1048576 That's followed by the output of DBCC MEMORYSTATUS, which I'll include at the end of this post. After that, things work normally for several hours, except for some occurences of Downgrading backup log buffers from 1024K to 64K That appear in the SQL Server error log when our transaction log backups occur.  Some time after that, we begin to receive Event ID: 701 There is insufficient system memory to run this query. In the event logs of our server. At that point, the server becomes unresponsive.  Restarting the SQL Server Service resolves the issue. Is anyone else experiencing this? It's only been happening 1 time per week (not consistently the same time) and has only occurred since Windows Server 2008 SP2 was installed.  I don't know if that's related, but it's the only real change to that server.  Workload has been consistent on that server for months. Can someone please help? Thanks. Here's the DBCC output. Memory Manager     VM Reserved =

Getting the Error: 0xC001000E at : The connection "" is not found. SQL 2005

After doing some looking I noticed this was included in the SP3 for SQL 2005. We have had this service pack installed for a while now but we are still randomly getting this error. Some packages will run fine for a long time and then all of the sudden start giving this error even though the package was successful. Any ideas? Thanks, Donnie

AdomdDataAdapter.Fill returns memory error when querying an SSAS Cube(2008)

For certain SQL's I will get the following error when calling the Fill method on an AdomdDataAdapter object. "Memory error: While attempting to store a string, a string was found that was larger than the page size selected. The operation cannot be completed."   Snippet of Code: DataSet ds1 = new DataSet(); AdomdCommand acmd1 = cn1.CreateCommand(); acmd1.CommandText = "SELECT ..."; AdomdDataAdapter ad1 = new AdomdDataAdapter(acmd1); ad1.Fill(ds1);   Now when we run this query in Ms Sql Studio we don't get any errors but the query returns 1 row with over 40,000 columns. I'm guessing the # of columns might be an issue but not sure.   When doing a Google search it appears that this problem was found in the 2005 and fixed in that version. Have any of you come across this problem?  

SSAS 2008 - Memory Error

During our unit and load testing of the SSAS database using VSTST 2010 Ultimate; we are getting a memory error with some of our MDX queries (below).  Futher analysis showed: The adomdDataAdapter "Fill" command is our error point The error is occuring when the result data set has getter than 16,384 Columns; actual returned column count is 41,339 columns - business requirement does not let us change this query at this time. The MDX query works fine in MS Excel 2007 The MDX Query works fine in MS SQL Studio 2008 How can we resolve the unit test data set with such a large column count? Memory error: While attempting to store a string, a string was found that was larger than the page size selected. The operation cannot be completed.

Configuring AWE and SQL 2005 Memory ! Is this right ??

Hi All     I would appreciate any help from you all with regards to this:   I have a SQL 2005 standard installation with windows server 2003 enterprise Operating system The server has 7GB of memory available to it, but as I know SQL 2003 standard edition would make use of the total server memory available to it.   Here are the changes that I have made. (I have converted it all to GB for easy reading)   I added the 3GB switch to the boot.ini file I enabled AWE I set mini server memory to 5GB I set max server memory to 6GB I turned on Performance monitor and the Target server memory counter  = 6GB, the total server memory is also set to 6GB.   Now after all the changes above, the server seems to run slower and looking at task manager, the PF usage is around 6GB. If I change the max server memory, the PF usage shoots up again, it MAX server memory is set to 5GB, PF usage jumps to 5GB as well..   Can anyone please confirm that the changes I made were indeed correct and possibly educate me on the configuration and how to make the best use of server memory etc.   I look forward to hearing from you all.   Thanks

SQL Server 2005 x64: Intermittent "Error: 18456, Severity: 14, State: 10."

Hi, We are experiencing intermittent authentication errors "Error: 18456, Severity: 14, State: 10" on a customer's production server. This is a new server that has just been rolled out in the past several months. Rebooting the server appears to make the problem go away. We are using SQL authentication from a separate server that is running IIS. The application always uses the same username and password to connect.

"None of the selected features can be installed" error on SQL 2005 Cluster

Hey All, I installed SQL 2005 on a cluster.  Everything on the primary node works fine.  However, as the documentation suggests, the SQL Management Studio (and other tools) are not installed on the standby node by default.  However, when I go to try and install on the 2nd node I get the following error: TITLE: Microsoft SQL Server Setup------------------------------ None of the selected features can be installed or upgraded. Setup cannot proceed since no effective change is being made to the machine. To continue, click Back and then select features to install. To exit SQL Server Setup, click Cancel. For help, click: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink?LinkID=20476&ProdName=Microsoft+SQL+Server&ProdVer=9.00.1399.06&EvtSrc=setup.rll&EvtID=SQLSetup90&EvtType=28108 ------------------------------The link is referencing something about requiring a complex SA password.   I can verify that the directory structure on node 1 where the management studio and client tools exist does not exist on node 2.   I'm at wits end here, I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling/everything. Anyone have any ideas? thanks!

processing measure group : memory error : the operation cannot be completed because the memory quota

Hi, I'm stucked with this problem. Untill last week, the cube processed without any problem. Since last week, I'm getting this error. I have been searching in different forums, and I tried some suggestions, like changing memory limit properties, ... It is getting worse.. So I reset all properties to default again. I am running SQL-Server + MS-AS 2005 SP2 on server with 4GB of memory. This is a dedicated server, nothing else is running on it. The fact table has +/- 14 million records, several dimensions en 2 measure groups. I don't have problems to process the dimensions, but when I try to process the cube or the measure groups of that cube separately , the error persists. I have changed the datasource view, and replaced the fact table by a Named query. Even when I put a 'WHERE datapart( year , fact_date ) >= 2009 ' clause to reduce the number of records to +/- 5 million, I'm still getting the error. I don't understand what is wrong, the cube always processed since +/- 2 years. As I said, I have found a lot of this kind of Issues on different websites, I have been trying to change some properties. But this still does not solve the problem. Could it be that MS-AS settings are corrupt somewhere ? Is it a good idea to re-install MS-AS 2005 + SP1 + SP2 ? Or is there another reason possible ? I really appreciate any kind of help, because I'm

Out of memory error during processing of OLAP database

Hello We have a problem with processing our customer's database. When we use processing in one transaction, processing often fails with out of memory error. This doesn't happen if we use seperate transactions for each processed object. Is there any way, how to predict (count) necessary memory, needed for processing the OLAP db?   Thanks a lot!!!   Martin Honajzer
