Cannot connect Visio 2007 to SQL Server CE 3.5 database?

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
I am trying to reverse engineer a database (running under SQL Server CE 3.5 SP1) with Visio 2007 Professional.  I may be being blind, but I can find not way for Visio to do this.  Am I missing something or just piddling into the wind? Fully patched Vista. Thanks, Ed Bessant

Why can I not connect to SQL Server Database?

Can somebody PLEASE try and assist me with this issue - it's been driving me insane for 2 weeks and I am seriously at the end of my tether now... I'm attempting to use ASP.NET Configuration from the Website Menu of Visual Web Developer 2010 Express. (Note: I have downloaded SQL Server 2008 & SQL Server 2008 R2 with VWD 2010 Express via Web Platform Installer.) I'm selecting 'select a single provider for all site management data' followed by; 'AspNetSQLProvider' but every time I try and click 'test' I get the following error message:   Could not establish a connection to the database.  If you have not yet created the SQL Server database, exit the Web Site Administration tool, use the aspnet_regsql command-line utility to create and configure the database, and then return to this tool to set the provider. After the scouring the 'net for literally tens of hours, I've found several forums that I thought would help, such as; * Re-installing SQL Server and copying the .exe file to the desktop to get the SQL Server to be able to be installed properly (which I've done and it seemed to install successfully), BUT even after doing this I keep getting the error as underlined above & * Finding the aspnet_regsql file and installing it via it's wizard I've tried doing the above on both my 32-bit Windows XP laptop AND my 64-bit Windows 7 laptop - b

Upsizing Database from Access 2007 to SQL Server Express 2008

I have recently downloaded and installed SQL Server Express 2008 on to my Windows XP SP3 machine, I have a large MS Access 2007 database (.accdb) I wish to export out to SQL Server. I am using the 'upsizing wizard' that is found on the 'Database Tools' tab of Access 2007. Clicking on the 'Database Tools' tab and then on the 'SQL Server' button starts the Upsizing wizard. On the first page of which I select the 'Create new database' option, the next page asks 'What SQL Server would you like to use for this database?' it already has '(local)' entered into the text box, so I leave that unchanged, I tick the trusted connection box and name the new SQL Server database and then click 'Next'. But I get the following error (it appears in a Windows information message box):

Title: Microsoft SQL Server Login
Message Text:
Connection failed:
SQLState: '01000'
SQL Server Error: 2
[Microsft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][Shared Memory]ConnectionOpen(Connect()).
Connection failed:
SQL State: '08001'
SQL Server Error: 17
[Microsft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][Shared Memory]SQL Server does not exist or access denied.

PS. I have successfully used the upsizing wizard to export the same Access database into SQL Server Express 2005 on another machine.

What am I doing wrong this time?

Access 2007 upsizing wizard can't connect to SQL Server 2005 Express


When trying to use the Access 2007 upsizing wizard to move a database to SQL Server 2005 Express, I get the following error message:

Connection failed:
SQLState: '01000'
SQL Server Error: 2
[Microsoft][ODBC SQ Server Driver][Share
Connection failed:
SQL Server Error: 17
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][Shared Memory]SQL Server
does not exist or access denied.

I get the same message regardless of whether I configure SQL Server to run as a local system or service.

I am the only user on my Vista 32 PC and am therefore the administrator. As far as I can tell I have sufficient authority since I can start and stop SQL Server.

As a newbie to all this, I can't find any step by step instructions as to how a local copy of SQL Server should be configured to work with the upsizing wizard. In fact I can't even find any Access 2007 help walk-throughs on this upsizing wizard, let alone troubleshooting its error messages.

Any help would be appreciated, as well as links to step by step instructions (which I can't find in the MSDN Library materials).

PS Does MS understand how inadequate and inefficient its built-in documentation really is? Maybe that's what keeps MS Press in business!

Can't connect to local database file .mdf using SQL Server Authentication?

Migrating MOSS 2007 installation from one database server to another - configuration database issue


The database server which our sharepoint installation is currently using is going to be shutdown and a new one is going to be put in production.

I read in some post that the configuration database cannot be moved (while the same operation type is documented for content database). Is this correct?

Isn't there a way by which I can modify my current moss installation to define the use of another sql server for configuration (and then later for content) databases?

Any other workaround or procedure?

Thank you!


Database server migration - renaming database server in SharePoint 2007


We are migrating our SharePoint databases to a new database server.  This new database server will have a new name for SharePoint to reference.  How do I go about pointing SharePoint 2007 from the old database server name to the new name?

It seems like there should be a simple solution, but I have yet to find a solid procedure.

Thank you,

Adding an SP 2010 server to an existing farm. "Failed to connect to the configuration database." dur


I have an existing sp 2010 enterprise server hosting websites and central administration.  I have a seperate sql 2008 r2 server holding the databases.  My goal is to setup another sp 2010 enterprise server to provide redundancy for the websites and central admin.  I believe I am able to accomplish this by adding another web front end to the farm.  On the second server, I install sp 2010, run the config wizard and connect to the config database located on the sql server, however, I am interrupted at step 3 when I am notified of the following:

Failed to connect to the configuration database.
An exception of type System.InvalidOperationException was thrown.  Additional exception information: There was an error encrypting or decrypting credentials. Either a credential update is currently being performed, or you must update the farm account credentials on this server before you can perform this task.

Unable to connect to SQL Server Database


Hi All,

I actually tried all of posted, at least over here, regarding installing Service Level Dashboard V2 on a WSS 3.0 stand-alone server, which I would use with SCOM 2007 R2, and all didn't work; I tried stopping the "Server 2005 Embedded Edition (MICROSOFT##SSEE)" and set it manual, didn't work.

Like others, I installed all pre-reqs before WSS 3.0, fine, no issues until running the ServiceLevelDashboard_x86.msi. I checked permission pertaining to the account used to run and connect to the Operations Manager Data Warehouse Server, local admin. The weird thing is I used the same steps that had been used to set these up on a testingserver, which was running fine. Now that we need to set these up on a production server. But those steps wouldn't work any more?!

Any helps, hints, lessons are really appreciated
