SQL 2012 :: SSMS 2012 Database Connection Dialog Hangs

Feb 13, 2015

I have several users with an unusual problem with SSMS 2012. When they attempt to connect to a database using the "Connect to Server" dialog box, the connection just hangs. Sometimes after about 15 minutes the connection will be successful. Other attempts simply spin seemingly endlessly. Users experiencing this issue are both running SSMS 2012 on Win 7 Pro (64 bit). The following troubleshooting steps have been tried:

1. When the user runs SSMS "As Administrator" the connections work almost instantly. (Elevating privileges is not a solution in our environment)
2. Wireshark shows that SSMS does not try to hit the SQL server when the user experiencing this issue clicks connect.
3. I can create a new virgin user on the PC and that login experiences the same problem.
4. A complete rip and re-install of SSMS 2012 does not resolve the issue.

SQL 2012 :: Encrypting Client Connection From SSMS

Oct 28, 2015

I used the selfssl.exe tool to generate a certificate on my db server, successfully added to Personal Certificates in MMC, added R/W permissions for the service account to the cert, selected the new certificate in the protocols for mssql and restarted the service. So far so good, however when trying to connect from SSMS with encryption check box checked I get the following error:

A connection was successfully established with the server, but then an error occurred during the login process. (provider: SSL Provider, error: 0 - The certificate chain was issued by an authority that is not trusted.) (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: -2146893019)

The certificate chain was issued by an authority that is not trusted.

When I look in MMC, the only intended purpose for the certificate is "Server authentication" and I'm not able to add "Client authentication". Does selfssl.exe not support client authentication?

SQL 2012 :: Connection Properties Versus SSMS Server Properties

Mar 16, 2015

I have an ODBC connection string that is working fine with the following properties:

Database="XXXXXXX",Network="YYYYYY"; strangely no server is specified in the string, but it is specified in the ODBC Connection file.

I am trying to do a new server registration in SSMS for this database.However, I don't understand where the network spec is placed.

Under Registered server name I've tried:


When I browse the server for the database instance list, I receive "network path was not found".

I even tried:"XXXXXXX",Network="YYYYYY" for the registered server name.Same error message.

What am I doing wrong ?

SQL 2012 :: How To Add SSC Add-ins To SSMS

May 4, 2014

I installed Red Gate's SQL Search and now I have an Add-ins icon. From the Icon I got to a list of tools, one of which is SSC's script library.

When I downloaded it I got this file "SQLScripts.utmcsr&__utmv=-&__utmk=243779397" which did not trigger an installer when clicking on it. How do I add it.

SQL Server 2012 :: Querying XML From SSMS?

May 5, 2014

I have an xml document that (for this example) I've simplified to look like this:

<xml xmlns:s='uuid:BDC6E3F0-6DA3-11d1-A2A3-00AA00C14882'
<s:Schema id='RowsetSchema'>


When I try querying the xml document in SQL, I get nothing back, unless I remove the schema information. I'm using this:

declare @x xml
select @x = P
from openrowset (bulk 'E:VehicleOption0514.xml', single_blob) as Products(P)
declare @hdoc int
exec sp_xml_preparedocument @hdoc output, @x

SSMS 2012 - Connect To Server Box

Sep 15, 2015

Every time I start SSMS 2012 the "Connect to Server" box is partially obscured in that the top of it, the move bar can't be accessed. I've manually moved it using "alt+space" then "M" followed by the arrow keys, but it's getting annoying.  Is there any way to change the initial start position of this box?

SQL 2012 :: Ssms Reports Library Not Registered

Nov 21, 2012

Windows 7 pro 64.
8gb ram.

Already have SQL2008 installed, and it works fine and great.Needed to install 2012 alongside for another project. Heard it should be fine to have both running. So I did. Installed MDS, DQS, SSIS, Service, and management tools. Launching SSMS 2012, when I click the "new query" button... I get the following error: library not registered. (exception from hresult:0x8002801D (type_e_libnotregistered))

If I connect object explorer to a server (local or otherwise), and try to script an object, it gives me the same error and then crashes the application. If I launch SSMS 2008, I can use it to connect to 2012 instance. So I know the instance and service are running correctly. It looks like its just the SSMS that is a problem.

SQL 2012 :: Ssms Display In Vertical Tabs?

Feb 27, 2014

I liked the default appearance of SSMS in 2005 and 2008. 2012 is lousy by default.

My quesion is whether it can be made to approximate the way it behaved in 2008.

What I liked: Registered Servers and Object Explorer resided on nested vertical tabs on the left-hand side of the screen. Queries stacked up on the right-hand side of the screen.

I managed to get the Registered Servers and Object explorer to display with nested vertical tabs (tabs at the top, rather than the bottom - that's ok). But if there aren't any other vertical tabbed displays, then the tab on top fills the screen. There's no point to that. Both Registered Servers and Object explorer are narrow trees. The rest of the screen is white nothingness.

If a query is opened, it then fills the screen - empty. If I want that in a vertical tab I have to manually make it one (right click, choose New Vertical Tab Group).

s there a way to make the doggone thing behave?

The way I got the Registered Servers and Object explorer to behave this way was to right click on a tab and play with the vertical tabbing options.

SQL 2012 :: Pasting Query Results Into XL From SSMS

Mar 13, 2014

Previous to 2012, grid results from SSMS queries pasted into Excel beautifully and were easy to format.in 2008, The results from this query pasted into a spreadsheet with the query contained in a single Excel cell:

(sample - not the whole script)
select top 300
,convert(datetime,Last_execution_time) as Timestamp
from dbadmin.dbo.History_CPU_IO_ByQueryAndSP

This was wonderful. I could deliver to developers wonderfully tidy reports on query resource usage with timestamps along with which stored procedure the queries came from.

Can't do that in SSMS 2012. Try it. It's a disaster. The Query_text, when pasted, spreads across multiple Excel columns, including the ones designated for other data. The result is totally unreadable.how to make the query_text stay in it's own cell? I've tried converting query_text to varchar and ntext. Same results.

SQL 2012 :: Exporting Data To A File In SSMS?

May 16, 2014

Normally, whenever I've wanted to export data to a file (which is very rare that I do), I have used SSMS. Yes, I'm sure there's a way to do it in T-SQL, but I've just done an export using the SSMS wizard.

But that appears to me to no longer be available in SSMS 2012. So, how is it done from SSMS 2012? Or is it only done using T-SQL/DDL?

SQL 2012 :: SSMS Crash When Viewing XML Output?

May 21, 2014

While working on a forum posting on this site, I came up with this code:

WITH JoinedTables(UserGroup, UserName) as (
SELECT 'UG1', 'Harry' UNION all
SELECT 'UG2', 'Albert' UNION all
SELECT 'UG3', 'Jim' UNION all
SELECT 'UG3', 'Sam'
SELECT UserGroup "@name"
, (SELECT UserName "User" FROM JoinedTables T2
Where t2.UserGroup = t1.UserGroup
FROM (SELECT DISTINCT UserGroup FROM JoinedTables) t1
FOR XML PATH('UserGroup'), ROOT('UserGroupsInfo')

The code does what I want but SSMS seems to have problems with the results. Every so often, if I click on the results, instead of opening a tab showing the XML, SSMS crashes.

I'm running SP1, version 11.0.3000.0.

SQL 2012 :: Restricting What A User Can View In SSMS

Feb 5, 2015

I want to provide access to one of my users to a database on the production server. I do not want this user to be able to view anything other than the tables in that database, or the other databases on my production server.

I gave him access to one DB - TestDB- and made him data_reader on that DB. I had set that as his default database. However, when he logs in using SSMS he can see from Object Explorer a listing of all the databases on that server, although he can't access any of those. This is an external user and I don't want him to see any of that stuff, including other objects (SPs, Views, etc.,) even within TestDB.

To summarize, I want to grant access to a windows user to see/select from ONLY tables in TestDB of my production server, and I do not want him to be able to see any objects other than tables of this DB from SSMS.

SQL 2012 :: AlwaysOn Read-intent Via SSMS Not Routing?

Nov 15, 2014

I setup an AG with a listener (AO1) on three servers.

Server1 = Primary, Readable Secondary = No
Server2 = Secondary, Readable Secondary = Read-intent only
Server3 = Secondary, Readable Secondary = Read-intent only

Connecting to AO1 with default settings, I end up on Server1.

If I attempt to connect to AO1 with specifying ;ApplicationIntent=ReadOnly (with or without specifying the db name) in SSMS, still lands me on Server1.

Also on topic, in this scenario I would actually want Server1 to be a readable secondary (in the event of a fail-over). So If I did set it as Yes, even If I do get the issue above working, won't I always land on Server1 then?

SQL Server 2012 :: Query Parses In SSMS But Not In SSIS?

Oct 20, 2015

The environment is Server 2008 32-bit, SQL 2012 SP2 Standard 32-bit (11.00.5058), and Visual Studio 10 SP1 (10.0.40219.1).

I have a query that begins with MERGE <tablename> USING (SELECT blah, blah, blah While in SSMS, I can parse the query with no issues. I can execute the query and see the results I expect. But when I put the same query into an Execute SQL Task in SSIS, it won't parse. It gives me one of those very informative messages that I so love - Query failed to parse. Incorrect syntax near the keyword "MERGE".

I don't know if the 32-bit/64-bit thing has any bearing or not, but I have taken the exact same project folder, copied it to a 64-bit box, and it works fine in both SSMS and SSIS. That one is running Server 2012 R2, SQL 2012 SP2 Standard (11.00.5343), and Visual Studio 10 SP1 (10.0.40219.1).

SQL 2012 :: Excel Spreadsheet Data Connection To Read-only Database

Aug 10, 2015

I've created an excel spreadsheet with a data connection. This data connection uses a query that runs against a read-only database.

The issue I'm having is that the query never seems to finish running against the database, whether I open the Excel spreadsheet to view the data or run the query in SSMS.

I created the connection on the Data ribbon by going to From Other Sources --> From SQL Server and using the Data Connection Wizard.

Is there some kind of setting or property I'm missing that would allow this query to finish running?

SSMS know you have an open tran when you attempt to close your SQL query window. Just looking for that to show or alert before that.

The context behind this is you given a script and its run on SQL and for some reason the tran is not committed. or rolled back.

SQL 2012 :: SSIS Script Task Hangs When Trying To Download Missing File From A URL?

Oct 12, 2014

I have an SSIS package that inserts website URLs from a SQLServer table into a variable used by an HTTP Connection Manager, then downloads the data files from those URLs using a ForEach Loop and a Script Task. Works beautifully when a data file is found at the URL, but hangs if no data file is found. I've set the Timeout property on the HTTP Connection Manager to 30 seconds, but doesn't work. how to first check if a data file exists, of if the request returns nothing, or how to trap this situation in a try-catch?

Here is the VB code I'm using in the Script Task:

Public Sub Main()
' Connect to website using HTTP connection manager
Dim nativeObject As Object = Dts.Connections("HTTP Connection Manager").AcquireConnection(Nothing)
' Create a new HTTP client connection
Dim connection As New HttpClientConnection(nativeObject)

SQL 2012 :: SSMS Object Explorer Lock Timeout When Running Compression Script

Jan 21, 2015


The table is 110 GB, so will take time to compress. But it is one table in a database with 60 tables. Why would executing this statement, cause lock timeout on Object Explorer in SQL Server Management Studio? Users cannot drill down objects in this database without getting lock timeout.

When I cancel the compression script, users of SSMS can access objects in this database again from the GUI. Why does compressing a specific table affect access to all tables metadata? I cannot find anything on the internet but I am sure this has happened to other people.
