How To Move Server Root Directory To Another Partition?

Apr 18, 2000

I want to move the SQL Server 7.0 root directory from C:MSSQL7 to D:MSSQL7 (same host). I see the startup parameters under server properties could be changed to point to the new location, but Master has the paths to all the databases recorded in sysdatabases table, so at least that would have to change, and sysdevices table points to files on C:. And maybe the NT registry points to some files there too. Anyway, is there some established method to move it? If that isn't practical, at least I would want to move TEMPDB ( perhaps by using the SP_DETACH and SP_ATTACH method ). My main database is already on D: so I do not have to move it. Any informed advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

SQL Server 2012 :: View To Concatenate File / Path Names Back To Root Directory?

Sep 25, 2014

We have a hierarchical table of some 2-3k of rows that grows slowly at only 3-5 rows a month, and is never likely to be above 5k, holding file/directory names with an IdParent int value pointing at that items immediate parent or NULL if root

Below is a sample:

Id Name IdParent
3 ProgramFiles 1
4 DataFiles 2
5 Excel.EXE 3
6 MyDataList.CSV 4

iterative code required to achieve the result I am looking for is best handled in the Application layer, but in this case the design brief is that we must get our results back as a View. Speed of execution and code clarity are secondary 'icing on the cake' issues.

I have tried recursive CTE's and XML FOR solutions but without success, and while I feel the latter is probably the best all rounder the searches I have made and the examples I have read do not seem to solve this particular issue.

Even to find the starting point of the search tree (i.e. the .EXE and the .CSV items) was difficult because the final slash is optional in some of the rows (.e. row 4)

The end result of my view on the above data should return:

Id FilePath
5 C:ProgramFilesExcel.EXE
6 D:DataFilesMyDataList.CSV (note the adding of the missing delimiter between DataFiles and MyDataList)

Does SQL Server Move Records Between Partitions When Updating The Partition Key Column?

Apr 4, 2007

If I run an UPDATE query on a table which is partitioned by the column I am updating - will the records be moved to another partition?

ie. I have a table where Historical bit column marks whether a particular record should go to Partition1 (=0) or Partition2 (=1). Now, I update a record in that table and change the Historical column value from 0 to 1. What happens with that record?

Move Sql Database From Development Machine To Server With Active Directory

Dec 23, 2004

Hi all! I know I might sound stupid, but I have this problem. I have developed my database on my laptop which does not use Active directory. Lets say I access the database with: SPIDERMANDB1 on SQL server, where the name of my laptop is SPIDERMAN, and the database is DB1. Now, I create an SQL script from sql server and make the necessary changes, like changing the computer name to say, SUPERMAN where my deployment server's name is SUPERMAN. But when I run the SQL script on the SUPERMAN server, it gives me an error like: "User or role SUPERMANDB1 does not exist in this database". I have deployed databases in this way on servers without Acive directory, so I'm sure its not a mistake on my side. So how am I supposed to go around this active directory thingi! Please help me out! I'm counting on u guys!

How To Move The Bad Data Into Another Directory While Looping Through A Set Of FLAT FILES ?

Sep 1, 2007

Currently looping through the set of flat files like CHK0604, CHK0611, CHK0618, and CHK0625 from the source folder C:SOURCE

OBJECTIVE within the flat file if any records/rows cause error i have to move the bad data into separate folder C:ERROR


1) In FOREACH LOOP component i specified the variable User:: sourceFilePath for my source file CHK0604 etc. location C:SOURCE. The loop walkthrough each file in C:SOURCE and if no error then moves the flat file into another folder C:ARCHIVED. This task is perfectly working.

2) Within the dataflow I am diverting the the bad rows from "conditional component" into "Flat File Destination" Component.

3) "Flat File Destination" Connection manager i set the expressions as @[User:: sourceFilePath] +"_Error.TXT".


Because of point (3) the error file is created in the SOURCE flat file location C:SOURCE.


1) My error file name should be CHK0604_Error, CHK0611_Error, CHK0618_Error, CHK0625_Error created in another folder C:ERROR.

2) How to move the bad data into another directory while looping through a set of FLAT FILES ?

3) If i have to create another variable like @[User:: ErrorFilePath] where to create ? How to use the source file title as the title of error file.?

Thanks for the help

Move Files From Directory Based On Names On A Static List.

May 2, 2008

I have a scenario where I need to move a series of files from within a directory of many files. The files follow no nameing convention and are more of less random. However the file names never change from week to week. I tried various different options in a 'file system task', no go.
Any ideas on how to move only a list of files?


can I load only specific files into a 'Foreach Loop container' from a certain directory. I tried delimiting file names in the file source, that did not work.

Either way can work,

Integration Services :: File System Task Move Directory Deletes Parent Destination Folder

Mar 12, 2013

I attempted to use Move Directory to move the contents of one directory to another.  I encountered the 'different volume' issue that others have experienced.  While this error is frustrating I can work past this particular issue. My more pressing question is why is the move directory command overwriting a destination directory?  

When I setup the Move directory file task I provided two vars to hold src and dest location:

dest var:  estserveroutput
src var: devserverdev estfiles
Set overwrite destination = TRUE

Why would Move Directory overwrite output folder at destination?  Shouldn't it only overwrite if the testfiles directory exists at destination?  This is very frustrating since I cannot find enough information in the official documentation to understand what is happening here.  

Is it just me or does the documentation for Move directory seem.....incomplete?

How Does SQL Server Know Which Partition To Look At?

Mar 27, 2007

Most examples for SQL Server 2005 involve a sales table that you split based on date, i.e. sales records prior to 2000 go to this partition, and the ones after that go to another one. Nice and simple.

Say I have a sales table:

id Amount Date
1 10 1/1/1999
2 9.99 1/1/2007

Now then, I put all the records prior to 2000 in it's own partition.

So when I do something like this: SELECT * FROM Sales WHERE DATE = 1/1/1999
the SQL server will know which partition to look at. Very nice.

Now then, if I do this: SELECT * FROM Sales WHERE id = 1
How will the SQL server know which partition to look at?

Thank You!

To Have No FAT Partition - Good Or Bad For Server?

Jan 21, 1999

I'm installing a new SQL Server machine. During NT Server
installation our NT support guy converted the only 2GB FAT
C: partition to NTFS. So as of right now all my 4 8GB drives are
NTFS. I think it would be better to keep this C: partition in FAT
because, as of my knowledge, having FAT boot partition can help
to boot the machine in case of NT crash.

Is there anything that I'm really losing by this conversion to NTFS or I
should not be worried so much about it? Does it put my SQL Server
databases, database .dat files or NT Server in more danger situation
in case of any crash?
Or it's giving me some advantages?

SQL Server 2012 :: Row Number Over Partition

Dec 5, 2013

I am having problems getting my last revision number out when i am trying to use inner joins along with the row_number over partition

I am using 2 tables, tbl_acyear_lookup & tbl_targets

tbl_acyear_lookup columns = (pk)- academic_year_id, academic_year
looks like this:
1, 2010/2011
2, 2011/2012
3, 2012/2013

tbl_targets columns = targetID, Academic_Year_ID,Course_Mode,UK_ENROL, INT_ENROL, Notes, Revision_Number

I have one stored proc that uses the Row_number over partition that looks like this:

Select TargetID, Academic_Year_id, Course_Mode, UK_Enrol, Int_Enrol, Notes, Revision_Number from
(SELECT ROW_NUMBER() OVER (partition by [Academic_Year_id] order by [Revision_Number] DESC) as [RevNum],TargetID, Academic_Year_id, Course_Mode, Target_Year, UK_Enrol, Int_Enrol, Notes, Revision_Number
FROM tbl_targets where course_mode=@course_mode) RV where (RV.RevNum=1)

Now the next store proc needs to use the above but i need to add the Academic_year from the tbl_acyear_lookup table also add filter the target_year ='year 1'

SQL Server 2014 :: Partition A Big Table Into Years?

I'm looking to partition a big table into years.

I have a big table with data going back to 2001.

I need to partition this into file groups each for the last 5 years, and the rest into its own file group

I was going to convert the inherent date time field into the format int(yyyymmdd) and partition on that field.

Is this an acceptable way to achieve this? Is there a better way to partition on date? [not time]

declare @orders table
bookid int,
startdate date,
endate date,
rowsequence int

SQL Server 2008 :: Slow Row Number Over Partition

Jul 28, 2015

I have a simple table with 4 columns

(idAuxiliarPF(BIGINT+PK), pf(BIGINT+FK), Data(DateTime), Descr(NVARCHAR))that has aprox. 50k rows.

I need to create a partition of the data to join to another table, the query that i have:

FROM dbo.PFAuxiliar
WHERE Data <= GETDATE()This query takes around 40 seconds to return the results

If i remove the Descr column, the query it takes no time.

FROM dbo.PFAuxiliar
WHERE Data <= GETDATE()I have two indexes, Clustered (idAuxiliarPF), NONClustered(pf).

How can i improve the performance of this query?

Master Database On Root Drive??

Apr 3, 2002

I have a 'need an opinion' question. I've always installed the system databases (master, msdb, model, tempdb) on the root drive (c:) with the sql application. Then I was thinking, the only things that really should be on the root drive is the sql app itself (and any other required apps). question is, do y'all install the master, etc on a separate drive other than the root, ie d: or e:? The reason I ask is that if the tempdb database has alot of activity, and the database resides on the root drive, could it affect sql performance?

Just wondering. I just started working in a 'virgin' sql environment (setting up sql servers from scratch), and want to have sql installed in the best possible way for performance.

Thanks in advance for any info y'all can provide.
