2- Rename current database to olddb with this code :

USE master
EXEC sp_dboption CurDataBase, 'Single User', True
EXEC sp_renamedb 'CurDataBase', 'OldDataBase'
3- Rename Newdb to current DB.
USE master

SQL Server 2014 :: Restoring Database Programmatically But Not Over Existing Live Database

Aug 6, 2015

I want to restore a database (from an encrypted .bak file) - but *not* over the live original if you take my meaning. Encryption is the standard AES-256 that comes with Sql Server 2014 btw. I don't want the original touched/altered in any way. I would like to capture a success message if possible.I can extract the physical device name of the database in question using the following code:

SELECT physical_device_name, *
FROM msdb.dbo.backupmediafamily
WHERE media_set_id =(SELECT TOP 1 media_set_id
FROM msdb.dbo.backupset
WHERE database_name='MyDatabase'
AND type='D'
ORDER BY backup_start_date DESC)

I would like if the newly restored database was rename to something different than 'MyDatabase' (as shown above) and has different logs than the original. If possible, and capture a success message when restored.

SQL Server Admin 2014 :: Restoring A Database Even If No Database Or Backup Encryption

Sep 3, 2014

I did tried the encryption on server "A" for database "AdventureWorks2012". Then I tried to restore to server "B". There was the certificate issue, and I thought "of course : it's encrypted ! Let's deactivate it". So here I go "ALTER DATABASE AdventureWorks2012 SET ENCYRPTION OFF".I look at sys.databases : not encrypted.I backup using no encryption, I verify using msdb.dbo.backupset : not encrypted.

I move my backup to my other server where encryption was never configured (so no certificate, nothing...), and I have the error :
Msg 33111, Level 16, State 3, Line 1

Cannot find server certificate with thumbprint '0xFA130E58C999C4919B8975999C83A75A403B11D8'.
Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 1

SQL Server Admin 2014 :: Logins With No Database Permissions

Nov 3, 2014

Query to show logins that don't have any permissions within the SQL instance? I'm tasked with doing some cleanup and have found some cases where the database was deleted or moved to another server but the logins that used it were not deleted. I'd like to identify them to research.

For instance a query to show logins that have no permissions in any of the existing databases would be handy. I'm thinking it would be complicated by the need to loop through all of the existing databases and then outer join it to the list of instance level logins. Going to try to write something like that but was hoping that a script already exists.

SQL Server Admin 2014 :: Error - Cannot Drop Database Because It Is Currently In Use

Oct 29, 2015

I have an environment with MS-SQL Server 2014 and always-on availability group configured (on 2-nodes).

I'm writing a Powershell Script which removes the database from the availability group (on the primary server) and then SHOULD drop the database on the secondary Server.

That works most of the time, but not always...

When it fails I get the error message:

Cannot drop database "Customer_2" because it is currently in use.

When i check the secondary DB-Server (sp_who2) while the script is running, i see that there is a process for the DB "Customer_2" with Status="background", Command="DB STARTUP" and LastWaitType="REDO_THREAD_PENDING WORK".

As soon as the script fails, this process for "Customer_2" disapears.

This happens always only on the second database in the availability group.

Why is the process still there, even after I removed the database from the Availability Group on the primary node.

If I remove the database from the availability group manually, the "background" process on the secondary node for that database disappears..

SQL Server Admin 2014 :: AlwaysOn Replica Database For Reporting

We have a 2 node clustered instance(SQL 2014) with 26 databases and we would like to enable alwayson for one of the databases for reporting (only one secondary and do not need high availability setup). I'm thinking if the reporting application/queries can explicitly connect to the secondary database(Instance namedatabase name) without using a listener and setup the secondary in asynchronous commit mode. Read about the REDO thread blocking due to reporting workload. How does this affect if I implement the secondary in this way.

SQL Server Admin 2014 :: Copy Resource Database MDF For Upgrading

Feb 11, 2015

Copy mssqlsystemresource.mdf of a recently upgraded server and paste to an old server have same effect of upgrading via .exe installation?

My idea is to save time and administrative efforts in upgrades (Service Packs and/or Cumulative Updates) using this method.

According to BOL:

The Resource database makes upgrading to a new version of SQL Server an easier and faster procedure. In earlier versions of SQL Server, upgrading required dropping and creating system objects. Because the Resource database file contains all system objects, an upgrade is now accomplished simply by copying the single Resource database file to the local server.

SQL Server Admin 2014 :: Restore Database From GUI Takes Long Or Never Pop Up

Mar 24, 2015

I have SQL 2014. When I try to restore a user database using SSMS GUI, the Restore Database Pop up box never pops up. This happens for any database on this server at any time. Sometimes I get the pop up, some times I dont get.

So I tried to click on Databases on Top and Restore Database, and then select the db that I need to restore from Drop down, then it shows "creating restore plan selecting backups" but it takes forever.

We have full backup and trn log backups every 30 mins. So is it trying to get all these backup files in the background causing this issue? If yes then how to overcome this?

SQL Server Admin 2014 :: Table Size Difference In Two Database

Jul 20, 2015

I am having an issue in determining the correct size of a table.

I have a tableA in some DB on transaction server (Enterprise Edition), this table is being replicated in reporting server DB (Standard edition).

When I check the space used by this table in both the databases i see noticeable difference.

I am using EXEC sp_spaceused 'tableA' to determine the space.

Transaction Server
name rows reserveddata index_size unused
TableA1439999 695416 KB507048 KB182912 KB 5456 KB

Reporting Server
name rows reserveddata index_size unused
TableA1439999 656904 KB483664 KB172680 KB 560 KB

So I wanted to know what could be the possible reasons for this difference ?

SQL Server Admin 2014 :: Restore Database Permission Failure

Jul 29, 2015

I'm trying to figure out why this SQL Agent job keeps failing.

We used management studio, and connected as mydomainmyuser, and developed a script to take a backup file from a network share and restore it. It worked fine in SSMS under that login.

After we got it working , we created a SQL Agent job on the same server to run the script, and set the agent job to run under that account that we tested with.

This is the error message we got:

"Executed as user: mydomainmyuser. Create Database permission denied in database master'.

So, I gave that login the rights to Create Database and Create Any Database. Then the error message changed to:

"Executed as user: mydomainmyuser. User does not have permission to RESTORE database 'mydatabase'. [SQLSTATE 42000][ERROR 3013] RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally. [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 3013). The step failed. "

* I can't use SA for the job account, because the SA account doesn't have rights to see the network folder where the backup file sits, so it has to run under the domain account.
* The user is a member of the dbcreator role - and the serveradmin and sysadmin roles
* The user is a member of dbowner on the database I am trying to overwrite with the restore
* I have given the user the rights CREATE DATABASE and CREATE ANY DATABASE

The only suspicious thing I found was that it appears the server was renamed at one time. When I looked at the login in management studio, I was not able to change some of the rights. On the Securables page, it shows the server name as "MyServer-New", but the server name is "MyServer". It is a replacement, and I suspect that when they did the replacement they named it "MyServer-New", set everything up, then renamed it.

I found this post listed below, and ran the script (shown below), and it showed that the server name was MyServer and the ServerInstanceName is MyServer-New

[URL] .....

SELECT HOST_NAME() AS 'host_name()',
@@servername AS 'ServerNameInstanceName',
SERVERPROPERTY('servername') AS 'ServerName',
SERVERPROPERTY('machinename') AS 'Windows_Name',
SERVERPROPERTY('ComputerNamePhysicalNetBIOS') AS 'NetBIOS_Name',
SERVERPROPERTY('instanceName') AS 'InstanceName',
SERVERPROPERTY('IsClustered') AS 'IsClustered'

I can't reset SQL until the next maintenance window to test changing the server name as outlined in the post.

Am I on the right track with the name change messing up permissions, or is there something else I need to check?

Error With Asp Admin/logins On Live Server

I have created a site using VWDExpress and now that I’ve finished testing have moved it over to the server which runs SQLServer 2000. Part of the site requires login, so I created the membership using the ASP.net web configuration tool and when testing locally worked well.
Now though that I’ve copied the web site over, when I try to log in I get the error:
System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server.  When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified
Obviously its some sort of configuration issue, but I don’t know what.
What do I have to change to make this work from a test machine to a live server?

SQL Server Admin 2014 :: Restore Database Without Backup History In MSDB

Jul 23, 2014

What is the best way to restore a database from a folder of backups (including full, diff and log backups) without using the backup history in msdb?

I have a restore process that restores all backups on a regular schedule in order to fully verify their integrity. To do this, I use the backup history in msdb on each server that I'm monitoring. I had a thought the other day that I would be in trouble if I lost msdb. Then my backup history would only be as good as the last backup of msdb.

What I'd like to do is read a folder of backup files and generate a restore script up to a specified time. Would I use RESTORE HEADERONLY to do this? If so, would I use PowerShell to traverse each file in the folder?

SQL Server Admin 2014 :: Database Backups And AlwaysOn Availability Groups

Oct 16, 2014

This is my first deployment of an always on availability group for SQL 2014 and I'm trying to get my custom backup procedure to handle all databases appropriately depending on the primary group. Basiscally I want the system databases and all databases that don't participate in the availability group to be backed up on both nodes and those that do participate backed up ONLY on the primary server. I've looked at the sys.fn_hadr_backup_is_preferred_replica funcation, but would like to only have to test for a single databases existance in the availability group. If the one database is in the group, only backup the system databases and those that don't participate, otherwise backup everydatabase. This would be the case for both full backups and transaction logs.
