Below is the information on the server before/after the upgrade.

MDW Disk Usage for Database Report Error - A data source has not been supplied for the data source D

Hello, On the MDW Disk Usage Collection Set report, I get the following error when I click on a database hyperlink. A data source has not been supplied for the data source DS_TraceEvents SQL profiler shows the following SQL statements are executed (I've replaced the database name with databaseX) 1. exec sp_executesql N'SELECT dtb.name AS [Name] FROM master.sys.databases AS dtb WHERE (dtb.name=@_msparam_0)',N'@_msparam_0 nvarchar(4000)',@_msparam_0=N'databaseX' this returns zero rows as databaseX does not exist on my MDW central server, but is a database on a target server (i.e. one that is being monitored and uploaded into the MDW central server). 2. USE [datatbaseX] this produces the following error: Msg 911, Level 16, State 1, Line 1 Database 'databaseX' does not exist. Make sure that the name is entered correctly. why is the report looking for the database on my server? thanks Jag Environment: MDW (Management Data Warehouse) on SQL 2008 R2

"[DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Connect()).]SQL Server does not exist or access denied error for a sched

Hi Guys, The subject of this question is the error which I am receiving when running a scheduled job also this is an error which we get at a random intervals and the frequency would be once or twice in a month. I have been through several posts and didn't concluded anything out of it. At the time when we receive this error the memory usage of the database was normal with free resources available and also the network was stable without issues. Our Sql database is in cluster mode with named instance. Can anyone share some information on this, I know this is not the right forum with the error message I have posted but am sure some one might have face the same problem when running some ETL jobs. Source and target both are sql server and the error message is generated in the validation phase of the connection manager connecting to target database. SSIS 2005 SP2 64 bit environmentRaju

FaultException : "The creator of this fault did not specify a reason" error

I have a simple service to return a custom SOAP Fault. And here is what the service throws MappingError me = new MappingError(); me.ErrorCode = ErrorType.OrderMappingFailed; me.Message = "Order mapping failed"; throw new FaultException<MappingError>(me); At this point i get an exception "The creator of this fault did not specify a reason". Looking around i see there is a FaultReason(String) class and  FaultException<> has a readonly Reason property. So, i used one of the overloaded constructor to set the FaultReason and made it work. Here is the working code MappingError me = new MappingError(); me.ErrorCode = ErrorType.OrderMappingFailed; me.Message = "Order mapping failed"; FaultException<MappingError> fe = new FaultException<MappingError>(me, new FaultReason("Order Guid is NULL")); throw fe; Now, will this be the behaviour when Winfx ships. If that be the case please update the FaultException<>  SDK docs. [ServiceContract] public interface IMyService { [OperationContract] [FaultContract(typeof(MappingError))] Guid SendRequest(int ID); }   [DataContract] public class MappingError { [DataMember] public ErrorType ErrorCode; [DataMember] public String Message; }
