Backup Fails With Error Message SQL-DMO (ODBC SQLState:42000) - Need Help !!!


This is my first posting and actually I have big problem which I need to resolve immediately:

I have a 38 GB Database on my SQL Server which I want to full-backup. Until now backup was created on the same volume where the database resides. But now the volume is out of disk space. So what we did is that we connected an external USB disk drive with 500 GB to the SQL Server and try to backup there.

But our first and all consecutive backup attemps failed with error SQL-DMO (ODBC SQLState: 42000). It's working fine the first few minutes as we can see that the backup file is continously growing. But then it abruptly aborts with above error message.

Can anyone figure out why ? Any help is appreciated.

In Desperate Need To Solve A Problem - SQL-DMO (ODBC SQLSTATE: 42000) ERROR 156!

Good morning all. I need some help with a stored proc that is driving me up a wall. It's probably something stairing me right in the face but I can't see it!

I keep getting the following error on the procedure that I'm working on:
ERROR 156: Incorrect syntax near keyword 'AS'
Must declare the variable '@signid'
Must declare the variable '@signid'

Here's the code:

CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[ws_savesignature2db]
@xml as text='',
@image as image='',
@imageformat as varchar(20)='',
@imagename as varchar(40)='',
@imagesize as int=0,
insert into signaturetable
([image], imageformat, imagename, imagesize)
(@image, @imageformat,@imagename,@imagesize)

if your XML field datatype is Text or nTEXT, use the code below in Sql Server 2000.
If you use Sql Server 2005, you can use varchar(max) or nvarchar(max) which will be
much easier and you do not need the code.
select @signid = @@IDENTITY
DECLARE @ptrval binary(16)
SELECT @ptrval = TEXTPTR([xml])
FROM ws_signature
WHERE signid= @signid
if @ptrval is not null
WRITETEXT ws_signature.xml @ptrval @xml

Any help you can give would be a life saver!!!!

Thanks in advance.

Restore In Recovery Mode Fails Sometimes With [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 3013)

I run 2 steps viz with NORECOVERY and with RECOVERY in sequence as SQP jobs. The 2nd step fails some times. When it starts failing, I run full backup of the production server again and the 2nd step starts succeding. Unless I run the full backup the 2nd step keeps on failing.

What are the conditions which generate for [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 3013) and how to tackle this problem.?

The 2 steps are :-
FROM DISK = 'E:SQL backup from productionsql_full_backup'
Replace ,
MOVE 'arsystem' TO 'd:ardataarsystem.mdf' ,
MOVE 'arsystem_log' TO 'D:ARLOGARsystem' ,

FROM DISK = 'E:SQL backup from productionSQL daily diff back up'

The status of the 2 steps is :
1 Executed as user: BPOTESTREMEDY
emedybackup. Processed 104480 pages for database 'ARSYSTEM', file 'ARSystem' on file 1. [SQLSTATE 01000] (Message 4035) Processed 1 pages for database 'ARSYSTEM', file 'ARSystem_log' on file 1.

I'm having trouble running jobs with my active directory (ADS) account. I've setup my SQL services to run under an ADS account, but jobs cannot seem to query ADS for user information. We're running Windows Server 2003 and SQL Server 2005 SP2.

Here is the error message:


The job failed. Unable to determine if the owner (ADSme) of job eFASRtest has server access (reason: Could not obtain information about Windows NT group/user 'ADSme', error code 0x5. [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 15404)).


also this message in log:

Linked Server Authentication Error - [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 7303)

Hi Guys:

Our company wanted to try out SQL Server 2005 Enterprise Edition (64 Bit). So, we were on free trial of the Enterprise Edition for past 5 months. After which we decided to go for SQL SERVER 2005 Standard Edition (64 Bit). And, Last week, we installed the SQL Server Standard Edition (64 Bit) on our server. After installation, everything was restored as before.

The version we are on right now is:

Microsoft SQL Server 2005 - 9.00.3054.00 (X64) Mar 23 2007 18:41:50 Copyright (c) 1988-2005 Microsoft Corporation Standard Edition (64-bit) on Windows NT 5.2 (Build 3790: Service Pack 2)

Strangely, a job which ran fine till then is failing with the following error: And, to be more specific, when this job is run manually in the form of a stored procedure using the query optimizer it runs fine. But, when its executed as a scheduled job on SQL Agent, it fails. The History logs record the following error.

Error :

The OLE DB provider "SQLNCLI" for linked server "LV-SQL2" reported an error. Authentication failed. [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 7399) Cannot initialize the data source object of OLE DB provider "SQLNCLI" for linked server "LV-SQL2". [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 7303) OLE DB provider "SQLNCLI" for linked server "LV-SQL2" returned message "Invalid authorization specification". [SQLSTATE 01000] (Error 7412).

I tried everything possible, even recreated the job, but, no avail.

I also considered the possibility if SQL Agent login account did not have enough permissions. So, I changed the SQL Agent login to windows authentication, but the job still fails. So, its the problem has nothing to do with login accounts either.

For the record, I have cross checked all these too.

1. Enabled the remote connections in Surface Area Config

2. Added local server login to remote server login mappings.

3. Checked 'Rpc' and 'Rpc Out' under server options. Also, the Connection Timeout and Query Timeout have been set to zero (0).

Any suggestions pointing towards problem solution appreciated.

Thank you.

Failed Maintenance Plan [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 22029)

We have a maintenance plan that runs every 15 minutes to backup a transaction log. It fails intermittantly with the message:
"sqlmaint.exe failed. [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 22029). The step failed."
This is the only error message to be found in any of the logs. I've checked event viewer, the SQL error logs, exception log, maintenance plan log, sysdbmainplan_history table in msdb, but can't find any extra information. I checked the MSDN for info on this error and this did not add any extra light on the problem.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to de-bug this error?

SQLSTATE 42000 Issue: HELP!!

I attempted to run a job that calls a procedure that performs UPDATE STATISTICS on all user tables in a database. Unfortunately, the job terminates with the msg:
"Msg 1934, Sev 16: UPDATE STATISTICS failed because the following SET options have incorrect settings: 'ANSI_NULLS., QUOTED_IDENTIFIER'. [SQLSTATE 42000]".

The same exact message also happens when I attempt to run a job that performs DBCC REINDEX on all user tables (this jobs also terminates)

I don't want to change the settings for the two options because the instructions in creating this DB specificall stated to turn ON these two options.

However, when I run UPDATE STATISTICS on a few tables using Query Analyzer, it runs successfully.

I'm confused. Any help to fix the above mentioned problem will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Specified SQL Server Not Found. [SQLSTATE 42000]

Hi,I have a Scheduled Job on my PC that runs against a Linked Server. Ihave scheduled the Job to run when SQL Server Agent starts and I haveconfigured my SQL Server and SQL Server Agent to start when the OSstarts. The connection to the Linked Server is via my Broadbandinternet connection.I have some suspicions as to the cause and hence a possible solutionbut I want to run my ideas past anyone else who may have experiencedthe same.1. Should I have my DSL modem turned on before I start the PC so thatthe Network connection is available when the OS starts?2. Are the Network connections only made available after you havelogged in and hence not established quickly enough before SQL Serverand SQL Server Agent are started?Yesterday, when I rebooted the PC with the modem still on theScheduled Job ran without failure but this morning again it failed. Myusual routine is to turn on the modem just before I login.If No. 2 is the case then maybe I just need to set the "Retryattempts" parameter.Thanks,Michael HolbertonHospedaje Los Jardines & Sacred Valley Mountain Bike ToursCusco Database Development and Cycling Services

I have a script which worked fine in SQL SERVER 2000. We have now upgraded to SQL SERVER 2005 (SP1). When I run the script from Query Analyser it works fine. But when I schedule the same script to run as a job, it fails and i get the following error:

Msg 102, Sev 15, State 1, Line 134 : Incorrect syntax near 'ge'. [SQLSTATE 42000]

Now, there is no problem with the syntax.
What could be the problem?? I have been searching for a logical answer on the Internet and although other people seem to have encontered a similar problem, I have yet to find an answer.

Million thanks if u can help.

ODBC Error: SQLState 28000 &&amp; Server Error 18452

We have an application that connects to SQL 2005 thru ODBC with the following string:

driver=SQL Server;server=server1;database=db2005;uid=serveruser;pwd=pwd1;

When our administrators login on the workstation the application works well. But when ordinary users login they get the following error. (We only have 1 domain)

SQLState: 28000

SQL Server Error: 18452

Login failed for user ". The user is not associated with a trusted SQL Server connection.

Then the standard SQL Server Login window pops up asking for the Login ID and Password. On the window the 'Use Trusted Connection' is checked and the name of the user on the workstation appears on the LoginID. What we do is uncheck the 'Use Trusted Connection' then login using the credentials above.

Need help on this one please. Thanks.

The odbc dll on the server is 3.60.0319 sqlsvr32.dll dated 8/14/98.
The seerver is NT 4.0 sp4.

Technet has not been helpful.

Has anyone seen this error before? How may I resolve it?
