Restoring Master Database

Hi all, I'm hopeful that someone can help.. I'm working with my DRP scripts, and am having some trouble.
First I run Rebuildm with no issue, sql works fine (btw we're on SQL7 SP2)
then I start sql in single user mode
sqlservr -m
next, I attempt to restore my master db from a dump, and receive the following error:
Getpage: bstat=0x9, sstat=0x1, cache
pageno is/should be:objid is/should be:
... IAM indicates that page is NOT allocated to this object
Error: 605, Severity: 21, State: 1.
Error: 3151, Severity: 21, State: 0
The master database failed to restore. Use the rebuildm utility to rebuild the master database. Shutting down SQL Server..

Restoring Master Database
In SQL 7 Books Online, the suggested method for disaster recovery is to restore the master database along with msdb and user databases.

I am testing this and have an issue restoring the master database. I start SQL in single user mode connected as sa. Using Enterprise Manager to initiate the restore I get the following error:

Microsoft SQL-DMO (ODBC SQLState:01000)
ConnectionTransact (GetOverlappedResult())
Connection broken.

This stops SQL Server, and prevents subsequent connections and the only fix is to rebuild the master database.

Any ideas?

Although user databases can be recreated and restored without restoring the original master, configuration, security and user logon information is lost without it.

Restoring A Master Database
Wejust recently found out that our production database (SQL Server 2005) was running on an evaluation license and that it would expire very soon. So we went ahead and bought a license for SQL Server 2005 Enterprise Edition and installed it last night. Before we started, we did full backups of SQL Server so that we could just restore the DB. Then we uninstalled the evaluation version and installed the enterprise version. However, when we tried to restore the master database, we got an error stating that the build/version number of the master database restore and the target SQL Server instance were different and that the restore could not be done. We decided not to try too hard and just manually entered the data into the already existing master database.

Well, we did not discover until this morning that our encrypted data was not decrypting because the servicemaster key was not matching the one that was used to encrypt our data. We realized that we do not have any backups for the service master key and we do not know the user credentials that were used to create the original service master key.

We tried already, but we could not get past step 6. We got thebuild/version mismatch error.

My question is does anyone have any ideas or suggestions on how to either get the master database to be restored or to get the service master key extracted? Our business is basically at a hault until we get this data encrypted.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Problem While Restoring Master Database

I have to restore 'master' database in sql server 2005. The server has two instances. As part of restore strategy, I need to bring server in single user mode. When I ran following in command prompt
sqlservr.exe - m -s via Binn Folder I got following error message.

Your SQL Server installation is either corrupt or has been tampered with (SQL Registery version not same as server). Please uninstall then re-run setup to correct this problem.

I have been clueless how to resolve this problem. Your help will be appreciated.

Restoring Master Database On A Sql 2000 Cluster
I can't find any articles telling me how to restore master,msdb databases on
a sql 2000 cluster. Both in a active/active setup and active/passive set up.
I am experimenting to see if normal restore in a stand alone environment would work. But I would like to know if there is a definitive method to use.
Looked on BOL could not find anything.

Orphaned SLQ Logins Remain After Restoring Master Database
We have an SQL6.5 sp3 server and a duplicate on a test network. Modifications were made on the live 6.5 SQL server to correct 'logins missing from master' errors while doing a trial upgrade to SQL7.0

After correcting the orphaned SQL logins on a live SQL6.5 server, I backed up the master database (and all user databases), and restored them to the test sql 6.5 server. However, the orphaned logins remained on the test server even though I restored the master database.

I followed the steps in the SQL books online article ' Restoring the Master Databse', except I skipped the part about rebuilding the master database because I wasn't sure what I would lose, and my master database wasn't damaged.

Do I need to rebuild the master database every time I want to restore user login information from our live SQL to test SQL server, or is there something else I need to do?

Thanks in advance.

After Restoring MASTER Database, Can't Start SQLServer Service: Configuration Block Version 0 Is Not A Valid Version Number
Now, I checked and verified that my backup version of SQL Server is the same as the version installed on the computer I'm restoring too.

I have SQL Server on a production machine that I backed up and want to test a full restore on a dev machine to make sure it will work when I need it to.

Now that I've run the restore command on my tape backup and go to restart the SQL server service I receive:

Configuration block version 0 is not a valid version number. SQL Server is exiting. Restore the master database or reinstall.

I'm afraid I don't understand why this is happening. If the builds are the same, then shouldn't restoring the MASTER database have worked normally and I'd be able to restart the service now?

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Restoring Master On Another Machine...
We set up a test box and having been trying to move an entire instancefrom our production server to this one. I have moved all my createddbs using the RESTORE WITH MOVE. Now I am trying to move the Master,Model, and msdb. This is where I am having trouble. On the productionbox the dbs are stored on D:mssql$instancenamedata. On the testserver the data is stored in C:Program FilesMicrosoft SQLServermssql$instancenamedata. Also the server names are different.So I finally got the Master from production to restore over the test'scopy. Now the instance will not start. I was trying to use thefollowing code in cmd line to connect to the instace so I could thencopy model and msdb:sqlservr -c -f -T3608 -T4022 -sINSTANCENAMEWhen this is trying to connect I read it is failing and saying that theMDF and LDF may be corrupt or not there. The problem is it is nowtrying to look in D:mssql$instancenamedata instead of C:ProgramFilesMicrosoft SQL Servermssql$instancenamedata. Any ideas on how Ican change this, or if I have to reinstall the entire instace, not runinto this again?

Issue With Restoring Master Db
Hi all,

I am trying to restore my master database to a new server in sql 2000. I have started sql in single user mode from the command line and connected to enterprise manager and attempted to do the restore. I also tried query analyzer and used the restore database from disk ='file path of backup' used the move option with the correct file path and on both counts received the same error message...

Error: 9001, Severity: 21, State: 1.
Error: 3151, Severity: 21, State: 0.

Any ideas? The connection is then broken (which I would expect anyway as restoring master shuts down sql but, I checked and it has not restored the db)

Trouble Restoring Master DB
I am running through a Disaster Recovery scenerio and I am having trouble restoring the Master and msdb DBs to a recovery box.

My production is a default Instance on WIN2k Server - SQL Server is 2000 Standard, sp3a

The box I'm trying to recover to is a Named Instance on WIN2003 server - SQL Server 2000, sp3a

I stopped/restarted my recovery server with -m and -T3608 startup parameters but when I attempt to restore the master backup from my production box to the recovery box, I get an error - it's a blank dialog box with a big red X and it says: Microsoft SQL-DMO - ODBS SQL State - HY000

when I check the sql server log: it shows the Server started in single user then it says recovering master db then starting up master DB then it just hangs..

Server event viewer shows this: 18052:error 3151, severity 21, state 0

not much to go on.. does anyone know what I'm doing wrong???

Restoring Master To Get SQL Login Back
Hi Everyone, I'm hoping someone can help me.
We've had a SQL login deleted (special application one) and I understand the best way I can get it back, is to restore the Master database. Is this true ? All the manuals are working on the fact that Master has become corrupt & that it should be rebuilt before restoring. Ours is not corrupt, so am I ok to skip rebuilding it first ?

Restoring Master And MSDB To A New Server
I have a server attached to a SAN, all user db's are on the SAN, master, tempdb, and msdb are on the local machine. We will be replacing the machine (not the SAN) to a newer sql server. Our plan was to create the new server with same name, deattach current user db's,backup master and msdb, then connect new server with same name an IP to SAN. I then wanted to restore the master and msdb db's to the new machine, and attach the user db's. We are running log shipping to a stand-by server in this configuration. I was thinking I could let last tran log backup and copy occur, and then let the last restore happen on the standby. I would then shut down the agent. Should I not be able to restore the MSDB and master to the new server (as long as all file folder locations are the same) and be ready to go? Or are there issues when restoring the Master and MSDB to a new server from a different server.

Problem Restoring SQL Svr 2000 Master Db - Wrong Server Version?
I'm trying to rebuild from a meltdown. I'm using disk backup files. Icould have sworn that I had SQL Server 2000 SP3 installed on the oldmachine, but maybe not.With SP3 installed, I get a message along the lines that the restorecan't be done because the backup was created using server version134218262 and this server is version 134218488.I've searched the documentation and can't find any reference to thoseversion numbers.In any case, I thought SQL Server 2000 could restore backups createdon any SP level to any SP level.Any ideas?--Regards.Richard.

Windows Service Account Issue When Restoring Master To Another Server
I noticed when I restore a master database to a server other then the one which created the backup of master, SQL Server contains the following three local security groups that were defined on the source server. The problem is these groups are "local" and do not apply to the server where master was restored.


For example, if you have adefault SQL Server instance namedMARKETING_TEST the security folder will contain the following three entries.


If you then backup the master database on an instance named MARKETING_PRODand restore it toMARKETING_TEST, the security folder on MARKETING _TEST will now contain the following three entries.


These entries would be invalid because no such server exists and therefor no such local groups exists. There appears to be no Microsoft documentation explaining how to handle these groups when restoring master from one server to another. My assumption is that whenever restoring master to another server you must drop these three groups and add the correct corresponding groups along with the appropriate permissions. I don't understand why SQL Server would not rebuild this information for you during a restore.

Any explanations?

Many failures but finally got it to report all was successful except the icon in Object Explorer shows (Restoring...) with no indication of any real activity going on. It's a tiny database with hardly any data in it.

Just not sure what the heck is going on there. It also won't let me into the database until this the (Restoring...) goes away.

CREATE DATABASE Permission Denied In Database 'master'

I'm using Visual Studio 2005 Pro and SQLExpress that comes with it.

I have my program running fine in XP Pro OS using a window user "Glen" (Computer administrator) with Administrator rights. This means that I installed VS 2005 using this window user "Glen"

I created anotherwindows user "TestUser" (Limited account) in the same physical PC.

I tried to run theprogramand on the part that I need to access SQL table, I got the error [CREATE DATABASE permission denied in database 'master']

At the same time while using "TestUser" and running sqlcmd (to check if I can connect to SQL), I also got errorHResult 0x2, Level 16, State 1.

I read alot on MSDN discussions and related links but it seems that I can't get the solution that I need.


1. Am I allowed to run my programusing user "TestUser" since SQL is installed using "Glen" windows user?

2. Do I need to add access rights to "TestUser" to allow the user to have CREATE rights? (Note : for security reason, I can add other access rights except Administrator)

Thanks in advance for all you help.

User does not have permission to perform this action.
The replication agent job [job name] was not removed because
it has a non-standard name; manually remove the job when it is no longer in use.
(Ive removed the job name from the message)
RESTORE DATABASE successfully processed 46219 pages in
935.413 seconds (0.404 MB/sec).

It looks like an attempt is being made to restore
replication information too. I note that
the RESTORE statement has a KEEP_REPLICATION options which implies (I would have
thought) that by default the replication information is not be restored.

Incidentally, before implementing replication, backing up
the live database and restoring the backup to a new database took < 7
minutes but running the same process with a Subscriber database backup takes
about 15 minutes.

Id be interested to know if anyone has any idea what Im
overlooking or doing wrong.

Hi Y'all,
 What are the advantages of placing stored procedures in the master database? Can i always use all the database-names on the instance?

Everyone Can See The Master Database?
I installed SQL Server, created a database for a sql server user andnoticed that the user has access to the master database even though thecheckbox for master database for the user login is not checked.They can list sysusers and find out all the names. They can list all thedatabases as well by using sp_helpdb.Is this normal behavior?If I check db_denydatareader and db_denydatawriter in the master databasefor that user, will that break anything?John Dalberg

DTS On Master Database
I tried to import a stored procedure from one Master database to another Master database, but it won't allow me. I then tried to copy and paste that system stored procedure on isql, but it still won't allow me.

Why I can do a DTS on other databases, except on Master database?
Is there any way around it?

Thanks for any help.

Master Database
hi, What are the symptoms that the master database is currepted?
If I do not know the databases sort order, code page, and Unicode collation and I had a master database crash, it is important during the rebuild process to maintain same configuration,

Is there a way to run a script which tells me the configuration set up of the master database. so I know ahead of time what configurations Ican use during the rebuilding process.

Master Database
I have a question regarding master database.I know if a master database is
corrupt we need to rebuild the master.One of the guys suggested us to
maintain a copy of master data file and log file in diffrent directory and
when master database is corrupt we can copy the files to the actual location
and restart the sql server and this should fix the issue and by this method we can save the time of rebuilding the master database.I don't know if this works.Can anyone please tell me if this works and also disadvantages if any with this method?

Master Database Changes
Various books read suggest that the Master
database be backed up when it is changed.'

What activities does a DBA perform (or perhaps)
a user) will cause the Master database to

I am aware that information about the addition
of new databases is kept in the Master.

TIA Gary
