Moving And Restoring Connections W/ SQL 2005 Databases

Dec 27, 2007

I have a question regarding moving databases within the same server but to a different drive. Using the 'Alter Database' query transaction procedures within the SQL Server Management Studio, I'm able to take a user database offline and move it. However, when using the Alter transaction to bring the database back online, I get errors. There was also an attempt that seemed to work, but the app that uses the database through ODBC can't see the database that was moved and errors out.
How can databases be moved and connections re-established within the same server?

Copy Latest Diff Backup From One Server To Another

Oct 9, 2014

SQL Server 2012-SP2 and Windows 2008R2

I need to copy the last differential backup file from the production server directory to a data warehouse server directory. There are 3 differential backup files on the directory and I need to grab the latest one. I have the following syntax which work from a batch file but it does not work when I put it into a job step as a cmd even though I remove the double %% to only one %.

echo @off
set path1="192.29.305.213$SqlserverProductionBa ckupsKBR_PROD"
set path2=K:SqlserverDatawarehouseBackupPROD
for /f "tokens=*" %%a in ('dir /b /a-d /o-d "%path1%DIFF*.bak"') do copy "%path1%\%%~a" "%path2%" & goto nextstep
Echo File Copied.

Even when I change it to (only one % for the variable),

for /f "tokens=*" %a in ('dir /b /a-d /o-d "%path1%DIFF*.bak"') do copy "%path1%\%~a" "%path2%"

It does not work..........It runs successfully but no file is copied or I get

Executed as user: PROD23Sqladm024. The process could not be created for step 1 of job 0xEAAF943771FF304A9E7AD8ADAC24F96C (reason: The system cannot find the file specified). The step failed.

I know that the file is there. It works with batch file. Poweshell script can be OK. No SSIS - Not installed

SQL Server 2012 :: Get Latest Occurrence Of X Month?

Jan 17, 2014

I'm trying to find the most succinct way to get the last occurrence of April 1st given a date.

At the moment I'm using this:

DECLARE @Date DATE = '20131217'
--If we're at the start of a year
--we'll need to go back a year
DATEPART(MONTH, @Date) IN (1,2,3),
DATEADD(YEAR, - 1, @Date),
)) AS VARCHAR(4)) + '0401')

SQL Server 2012 :: Retrieving Dataset That Only Includes Latest Versions Of Data

Mar 28, 2014

In our Microsoft Dynamics Nav instance we have a Sales Header Archive table - into which copies of the Sales Header are placed, with 3 items forming the compound key:

Document Number
Occurrence number

so if doc 1 is archived, then the records would be

Doc# | Version | Occurrence #
1 | 1 | 1

When a second copy is archived a new record is added:

Doc# | Version | Occurrence #
1 | 1 | 1
1 | 1 | 2

and then when maybe a 3rd version is archived a 3rd entry added

Doc# | Version | Occurrence #
1 | 1 | 1
1 | 1 | 2
1 | 2 | 2

This is for EACH document and I now need to retrieve the dataset which is the latest version of each document... but I'm drawing a blank!

If I

select [Doc#], max([Version]) as [V], max([Occurrence #]) from (table) group by [Doc#]

then I get the distinct list of docs, but I now need to use this list to select the records which match this criteria, from this table.

How do I select just these?

I thought (wrongly) that I could simply say:

Select * from Invoice Table where
Invoice.[Doc#], Invoice.[V], Invoice.[Occurrence #] in
(select [Doc#], max([Version]) as [V], max([Occurrence #]) from (table) group by [Doc#])

SQL Server 2012 :: Query Pulling Latest Info Data From Table

Aug 29, 2014

Let's say I have a table of data as per the below..

I'm trying to extract only the green highlighted items..

The rules applied are: Only the latest data concerning all cases, and only 1 line (the latest) per case.

As you can see in the image, I don't want the 2nd,3rd, and 4th record extracted cause they are all superseded by more recent records (identified as they are further in the table).

I've considered using either Distinct or Having? but can't get that to work.. If I could use Distinct but then ensure it's the latest record in the table that would be perfect.

Restoring Backup From 1 Server To Another

May 12, 1999

I want to create a database that is identical to one I currently have for testing purposes. I took a backup and tried to restore it to
another server to actually create the database. It wouldn't work, then I created the database on that server and gave it the exact
name and file layout (dbid was different) and tried to restore the backup to the newly created database. Still would not restore.
I am using SQL 7 for backkup and restore. The backup device backs up to disk on the servers. What I am doing wrong?

Restoring Backup On New Machine

Jan 4, 2007

Hi all,

My first post on these forums and I'm hoping someone can please help me before I pull all of my hair out.

I'm currently working on the redevelopment of a website. The old one was written in ASP and we're going to totally redo the whole thing. As a lot of the content was dynamic I want to fire up the old site on my laptop to browse and pull content from. I have a backup of the entire website which I have put under a fresh IIS install. I also have a backup of the MSSQL database. I have restored this to the local machine and can view it using the SQL Server Management Studio. The problem is that I think I am having lots of trouble synching the users/permissions for it. We don't have a backup of the Master databases so I am stuck with what I can extract from the site backup and web code.

Trying to load the old index.asp I get either of these error messages quote:'Login failed for user 'Username'. The user is not associated with a trusted SQL Server connection' or 'SQL Server does not exist or access denied.' depending on how I've played with the user permissions.

Please can someone help me sort this out so that the old ASP webpages can access the DB again? I'm used to mySQL/PHP so am struggling a bit to get this going.

Bit more info. Here are the connection details the site uses within an ASP page.
dim Conn

'---------------------Create connection------------------------------------------------------
Set Conn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Conn.Open "Driver={SQL Server};Server=MYSERVER;Database=dbTest;uid=dbTestUser;pwd=testpasssql"

Backup And Restoring After Upgrade

Mar 26, 2007

I used backup and restore to upgrade to sql 2005 from 2000. It went well but I didn't get the permissions change in time for the users to access the database today. The users were accessing the old server. I need to do another backup off the old server to the new server. Do I do a full backup to get the information for today's data or what? Will it restore a full backup override?

Restoring A Sql Express Backup To Sql 2005

Jun 2, 2008

i'm trying to set up one of the asp.net website starter kits and part of the process is to backup the sql express db and then import it into the sql 2005 at the web hosting account.  it's not working and i'm wondering if there's any difference between the backups they make.  the sql express makes a file with a .bak extension and the sql 2005 at the host makes a file with a .sqlbak extension.  i was assuming that was just a naming thing and not a structural thing but the host's tech support has said:
"This sort of thing happens when the database being imported is not properly formatted. You can try downloading and using sql express from microsoft to see if you can do it manually, but most likely you will need to save your database again properly set for import to an mssql server rather than however you did."
all i had done was rename the .bak file from express to .sqlbak as that was the choice for backup files.
i will note that it also failed importing the .mdf, which works fine locally with the site but i did make some changes to it from the original that came with the starter kit.
should a backup file made with sql express (using sql management studio express, by right clicking on the file and choosing tasks > backup) normally be importable by sql 2005?
or, i suppose, does it make sense that a db that works fine locally with sql express (within a visual web developer express project anyway) would actually be "formatted" in a way that would cause it to fail to import into sql 2005?
thanks much for any assistance.
