SQL Server 2008 :: Unable To Open Step Output File
Aug 27, 2013
I am running sql script inside job.But sql is not saving the results in the file which i specified('Unable to open Step output file'). I tried same thing on different server, it works fine.Both are are 2008 R2.Is there any server level setting that i have to look at.On both servers i logged in as sal. Why is it working on server1 ,but not on server2?
I have a SQL Server 2005 database file (a .mdf file) that I am trying to open in SQL Server Management Studio so I can add a field to a table, but I am unable to open the file. I can't say that I really understand how SQL Server handles these databases. I especially don't understand the "attaching" and "detaching" operations.
I am working in VB.Net 2008 now, but my background is with VB6 using the JET engine. It was just so straightforward using the JET engine, but seems so much more complicated with SQL Server. I am trying to use .mdf files the same way I used .mdb files. I want my application to find the database file, "attach to it", and let me manipulate it.
At one time I was able to open my database in Sql Server Management Studio and edit the design of the database. The application still works but I am no longer able to modify the database because I cannot attach to it in Management Studio.
Here is a big clue: the files are no longer in the special folder anymore, which is c:Program Files (x86)Microsoft SQL ServerMSSQL.2MSSQLDATA. I might have deleted the files, stupidly, thinking they were redundant. I still have the .mdf file (and the _log.ldf file) on my hard drive and the application can still open it, but when I try to use Management Studio to attach to the .mdf file, I get this error:
Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Express
An error occurred when attaching the database(s). Click the hyperlink in the Message column for details.
here are the details:
Unable to open the physical file "c:Program Files (x86)Microsoft SQL ServerMSSQL.2MSSQLDATAHEALSExamsSQL.mdf". Operating system error 2: "2(The system cannot find the file specified.)". (.Net SqlClient Data Provider)
Indeed the file is not there, but why is Mgmt Studio looking there? Why doesn't it just open the file where it is? What can I do to get it back? I even copied the files to c:Program Files (x86)Microsoft SQL ServerMSSQL.2MSSQLDATA? I get the same error.
Here is another clue: In Management Studio, when I right-click Databases, and chose Attach, it brings up a dialog. There I click "Add" to get another dialog in which I will select a database, but before the dialog appears I get this error:
Locate Database Files - KURANT-WIN7SQLEXPRESS C:UsersJason KurantDesktop Cannot access the specified path or file on the server. Verify that you have the necessary security privileges and that the path or file exists.
If you know that the service account can access a specific file, type in the full path for the file in the File Name control in the Locate dialog box.
Hi all. I'm currently working with SQL Server 2K, and I've installed Analysis Services as well as SP4.
I previously wrote a DTS that had several FTP steps in it. I was able to view/edit/run this package until recently. We were testing out SQL Server '05, and when we uninstalled it, it really screwed up my install of SQL 2k.
Long story short, I've scrubbed the system and reinstalled SQL Server 2K, but am unable to open the DTS package. The error I get is:
Error Source: Microsoft Data Transformation Service (DTS) Package Error Description: Unspecified Error
Then a prompt that says: The selected package cannot be opened. The DTS Designer has been closed
I've googled like crazy, and have been unable to find any resolution on this. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
When I go to open a file in SSMS, the Open File dialog box appears. In the left side of that box, there is a panel containing shortcuts to various locations: Desktop, My Projects, and My Computer. I would like to add some shortcuts to folder that I use in this area, but I haven't been able to figure out how. how to do this?
I have the following code below where I need to have all of the query results output into a .csv file to use in a VBA macro. The issue I am running into is that the data is not deliminating correctly and my rows are being shifted incorrectly. Any better way of out putting the results into a .csv file with a common delimiter.
Output from query (please post in a text editor. The line starting with (only ) should be on line 1 after 20 pks and is shifted to a new line.):
557898^1^9885E25^80082^9.0 CM GLASS FIBER PADS 20PKS (only 12 pks in stock that will ship today) ^12.00000000^.00000000^18.32000000^219.84000000000^28.30000000 ^339.60000000000^9.98000000^35.2650176678445^DR9146322^0^
I have a table which has few columns as Numeric value. I need to export the output into a csv file as a report with column headers. I have used bcp command. Here column name and Column Header name is the same. The BCP query which i have used is Below
I am having a Stored Procedure Or SQL Script to be attached to Job Scheduler. When this Stored procedure executes it generates some output text. I need to store this output to text file when ever this store Procedure (or) SQL Script executed by job Scheduler.
Unable to open the physical mdf file or log file because it is being used by another process
I am trying to write a Windows Application using ASP.NET 2.0, C#2005 EXPRESS, and SQL 2005 EXPRESS.
I had followed the introductory video to create a connection to the Database using Windows Authentication, and use the wizard to create a dataset and checking all the tables in the database.
After that I dragged a table from the data source created from the above process. The Details Grid so created is able to perform update, delete and addition of records.
But when I went back to the database at my PC I wasn€™t able to connect to the database. And if I opened the database first and then load the windows application and perform some database operations and went back to the physical database I wasn€™t able to open the tables in the database.
The error message is that the physical database connection cannot open the .mdf file or log file because another process is using the database. I guess it refers to the Windows Application.
Is this normal? Will it have any implications after the application is deployed? I suppose that there isn€™t a scenario where a Windows application and a physical process will access the database at the same time.
Will appreciate some feedback and advice on this scenario and whether it is a problem.
Hi, i'm trying to interface a c# application with an sql database created with Visual Web Developer Express. I have published the site (and the db) on iis 5 (xp pro). Everithing goes fine on accessing the database from internet,but when i try to connect the db while it's opened with my c# program i keep an error in the sqlconnection open command: Unable to open the physical file "C:myApp_Datamydb.mdf". Operating system error 32: "32(The file is in use by another process.)". My connection string from webconfig: <add name="MYDBCS" connectionString="Data Source=.SQLEXPRESS;Database="C:myApp_Datamydb.mdf;Integrated Security=True;Connect Timeout=30;User Instance=True" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" /> .....and the connection string for the c# program: "Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;Database=c:myapp_datamydb.mdf;Integrated Security=False;Connect Timeout=30;User ID=abc;Password=abc;Trusted_Connection=False;"; I have used a user to connect the database because there was a conflict trying to open the db with Integrated Security=True.
Does anyone have an idea where is the error? Many thanks Max
Scenario : I have VC++ 2005 Express IDE open and use the database explorer to browse tables in a database. Then I open SQL Server Managament Studio Express and try to browse the same database. I get "Unable to open the physical file ... The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process".
What is this "other process" that is trying to open the file? I thought the whole point of a database server was that clients talk to the server, and the server accesses the physical file. So only one process should be accessing the file. Do VC++ IDE and SSMSE work directly with the physical file, or do they channel their requests, etc. through the server.
Hi, I've just finished creating my first ASP.NET website. I created it on my laptop and it works perfectly, but I'm having some problems deploying it to my web server (PC).The site works ok, but when I try to log in to my client area, I get this error: "Unable to open the physical file "c:inetpubwwwrootONeillStrataApp_Dataaspnetdb.mdf". Operating system error 5: "5(Access is denied.)".An attempt to attach an auto-named database for file c:inetpubwwwrootONeillStrataApp_Dataaspnetdb.mdf failed. A database with the same name exists, or specified file cannot be opened, or it is located on UNC share." I've searched far and wide for a solution and have read many articles, but none seem to be able to fix my problem. I've tried using that SEUtil tool, but that didn't work, I've made sure the App_Data directory on the web server isn't read only (the read-only checkbox isn't ticked, but it DOES have that little green square which I can't get rid of), I've assigned the ASPNET user as a db owner and that didn't work and I've manually attached the database to the web server's instance of SQL Express 2005.When I launch the solution in VS2005 on the web server, I can browse through the database and see the tables and data etc, but when I try to run the application, I get that message above... Surely it shouldn't be this hard to get it going?Any help would be massively appreciated.
I created jobs in SQL Server Agent. Inthe jobs I created steps which name is bankdata.But I am having a problem open the step , Following is the error am getting

Well, I'm to the point of giving up. If there was a 1-800 # that charged $400 /minute for support at this point I would pay it! I have been developing an ASP.net 2.0 web application that basically has login security. I have been struggling to get this thing to work. On my local machine it works fine, but when I copy the code (including the ASPNETDB.mdf that is in the APP_Data directory) over to a web server, I get to the login screen but when I attempt to login I get an error. I've tried using the SSEUTIL.exe and was unsuccessful. At this point I don't even know where to start. Can someone please help me??? The error is listed below: Server Error in '/' Application.

I am working in a C# database application quick test where I basically use two types of access to an SQL Server Express database. In the first part of the code, I use the traditional connection declaring a SqlConnection. When I just use only this kind of connection I do not have any problem. The issue starts when I access to the same database using Data Bindigs at the same time. When I start the application I got and error as soon as the instruction goes to open the data base connection. The reported error is "Unable to open the physical file "<NiÃ±os.mdf>". Operating System Error 32: (Process does not have access to the file because is being using by another process)"
For additional information my connection string is:
SQL Server 2012 SP2 Enterprise Edition (11.0.5058.0) on Windows Server 2008 R2
At some point a few months ago we encountered an issue where we hit some size limit on the amount of text we could enter into a Transact-SQL step of an Agent job. Attempting to create a job like this with sp_add_job will produce the error
Msg 50000, Level 16, State 10, Procedure sp_add_jobstep_internal, Line 255 String or binary data would be truncated.
Adding the job step via SSMS yields
Alter failed for JobStep 'xxx'. (Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo) Additional information: An exception occurred while executing a Transact-SQL statement or batch (Microsoft.SqlServer.ConnectionInfo) String or binary data would be truncated. The statement has been terminated. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 8152)
I've checked sp_add_jobstep_internal, sp_add_jobstep and the sysjobsteps table and all references to the command field are nvarchar(max). We can run the same job creation code without error on a SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition machine and two SQL Server 2012 SP2 Developer Edition boxes. All our 2012 servers were fresh installs, not upgrades.
i have a sql server job scheduled to run daily twice.the job is running fine , but once Â or twice a week the job fails saying."Message Unable to connect to SQL Server '(local)'. Â The step failed." all other times the job runs successfully. it randomly the job is failing. once its failed and if i try to run it manually it runs fine or it will start running fine from next schedule onwards.This job mainly executes a stored procedure.the owner of the job is setup as sa. i don't understand why its fail randomly and all other times(90% of cases) it successful."Unable to connect to SQL Server '(local)'. Â The step failed."
I am trying to attach a database to SQL 2005. This database has not previously been attached. I have only just installed SQL. Â I get the following message: Unable to open physical file "C:ArrowSQLArr@DataArrow_data.mdf" Operating system error 5: "5(error not found)" (Microsoft SQL Server: Error 5120)". Â I have loaded SQL and the database fiel and directory with the same user account which isÂ a local administrator on this machine. I have checked that I have read/write access to the file. Â The machine runs Windows Vista Business. SQL has SP 2 loaded. What causes this?
I want to convert .rdlÂ to .rdc need full steps.Actually i created .rdl report using sp sucessfully.Now i want to convert it to rdlc while doing it iam getting some authentication error and some thing else.I created rdl in 2008 and i want to change it to rdlc 2010.
I have a package that has multiple data flow tasks. At the end of a task, key data is written into a raw file (file name stored in a variable) that is used as a data source for the next task. Each task requires a success from the preceding task.
Here's the rub:
If I execute the entire package, the results of the package (number of records of certain tasks) differs significantly from when I execute each step in the package in turn (many more records e.g. 5 vs 350).
I get the feeling that the Raw file is read into memory before it is flushed by the previous task, or that the next task begins preparation tasks too early.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
I am running on Server 2003 64 (although the same thing happens when deployed on a Server 2003 32 machine)
We are trying to attach a database in Sql Server 2005 Express on Windows Vista.It will Show the following Error.
"Unable to open the physical file "Test.mdf". Operating system error 5 :". And then we installed the SQL Server 2005 Service pack 2. This error again comes.Could you please give me the steps to resolve the problem.
I have a maintenance job which has many job steps - checkdb, backup, rebuild index, etc...
I was asked to setup a job which will copy all backup files to a central location.
Now I wrote the script and its working good (part of a new job step)
But, I am now thinking to add some more logic in the job step:-
that is, if the previous job (server maintenance) is successfully completed with the backup job (if completed successfully), then only the copy to location job will start, if the other job step is failed, my copy bkp job will not run.
I have a simple SSIS package that imports an Excel Spreadsheet into a table. The column heading got changed, so the package failed, as expected, but I would like an alert or some way to make the scheduled job show "failed". I tried putting an event handler on the :Data Flow" step to send an email, but it didn't work.
I would like to figure out the event handler problem, but more important to have the job show as failed.
For some reason the Scheduled job shows "success" even though the SSIS package failed. A better solution is to make the scheduled job itself fail, based on the package failing.
Post installation of SQL Server 2014 Express edition, I am able to connect to the Database Instance.

Hello, I have a SQL Express database in a C# project, which I use for unit tests. However, I am getting the "unable to open SQL Express database", access is denied. I used to be able to do use it fine. I also used to attach it to the SQL Server engine, but now I'm getting access denied there as well. I ensured that it isn't currently attached... at least, I cannot see it, but maybe its still attached somehow? I don't know what the problem is... running out of ideas. Thanks.
I created ReportServer by reporting services configuration and i gave the local and remote permissions using surface area cofiguration using tcp/ip only. But when i browse the reportserver i got the below mentioned error.
