SQL Tools :: Lost All Objects Suddenly Only Remains Name Of Database No Backups Available

Nov 8, 2015

I recently installed a trial version of Sql12k on my laptop. Since 1st of November I've been creating tables without problems (15) and different schemas.I would like to emphasize that both mdf and ldf files are allocated in my USB3 portable disk. is that a problems for Sql12K? SSMS had stuck just for 20 sec or so. Then, system itself kill the task. A huge surprise when I restarted again... all the databases including the last one.. without objects. I mean, user databases...

Where are my logins? Where are my tables and schemas? Jesus christ.Sql logs inform the following (in all the moment my USB hardisk was properly connected)

11/08/2015 16:00:30,spid19s,Unknown,The operating system returned error 21(El dispositivo no está listo.) to SQL Server during a read at offset 0x000000 00140000 in file 'f:enriccopia_de_bbbb.mdf'. Additional messages in the SQL Server error log and system event log may provide more detail. This is a severe system-level error condition that threatens database integrity and must be corrected immediately. Complete a full database consistency

Reattaching Lost Databases - No Backups

Feb 9, 2000

What do you do when the database actually, physically exists, intact, but is not recognized by SQL Server 7 and there is no backup?

On a newly installed system, I created a new database and imported tables from another system. I also disbled SQL Server 7 services, rebooted and file-copied into the directory another database, that was not on a current SQL Server system, then restarted SQL Server.

SQL Server 7 failed to recognize any of the databases - master, model, etc., as well as the user databases. Neither database was specifically detached - allegedly a requirement for using sp_attach_db. No backups had been done - I was still setting up(?).

I know that there must be a way to reload, reattach or recreate a database when the database actually exists. In this case, we also lost master, etc., which may change the situation. Any advice would be appreciated.

DB Engine :: Snapshots Remains In Database After Last CheckDB

Sep 5, 2015

Our last CheckDB failed on the 02/09. We were having problems with our SAN then and that got sorted out. The databases that it failed still has the snapshot showing in SQL Management Studio, screenshot exemple below (server name blanked out)

I reran CheckDB on the 04/09 on all the databases and the same databases that failed on the 02/09 failed again. I noticed in the log file, it tried to use the same snapshot file created on  02/09 to run CheckBD

I ran CheckDB manually on the databases that failed "DBCC CheckDB (WSS_Content_ce) with all_errormsgs" and did not get any errors back. 

How do I remove the snapshot databases? We had a problem on 02/09 so the snapshot copy obvisouly has problems. I'd like to remove these snapshots and rerun a CheckDB on all the databases to ensure all is ok.

SQL Server 2005 SP2 Cannot Be Installed Because The Database Engine Setup Remains In Suspended Installation Mode

Feb 23, 2007

SP2 refuses to install for the Database Engine because the previous upgrade did not complete?, i.e. it detects a suspended installation. The same thing happened to me when I installed SP1. I then remember opening the maintenance dialog and completing the setup, after which SP1 installed just fine.

When I try to do the same thing this time, Im presented with the ?complete the suspended installation? option, which when I run it reports the installation completed successfully. However, in reality the installation still remains in suspended mode for whatever reason. If I reboot and open the maintenance dialog, Im still presented with the ?complete the suspended installation? option. Ive even tried to run it more than once, but it doesnt help. Needless to say, SP2 still refuses to install.

I don't know why the installation is in a suspended state. I know every part of SP1 installed successfully in the end, and the computer never crashed during the installation. I've been using it every day since then, without any problems. All other parts of SP2 did install successfully.

I created a feedback entry on Microsoft Connect, where you can find the log files created by Windows Installer. The URL is:

Any ideas what I can do to resolve this problem?

Login Mapping Lost After &"Copy SQL Server Objects&"

May 6, 2008

After I run a SSIS package which is a "Trasfer SQL Server Objects Task", the database users has lost all mapping to SQL server login. I've tried various options inside the package, however, to my surprise, sometimes the user settings at SOURCE database is lost! I won't suppose to change anything in the SOURCE database after running a data transfer... Anyone knows what's wrong?
Thanks in advance!

DropObjectsFirst - TRUE
IncludeExtendedProperties - FALSE
CopyData - TRUE
ExistingData - Replace
CopySchema - TRUE
UseCollation - FALSE
IncludeDependentObjects - TRUE
CopyAllOBjects - TRUE
CopySqlServerLogins - TRUE/FALSE (both tried)

CopyDatabaseUsers - TRUE
CopyDatabaseRoles - TRUE
Result - the user-login mapping at destination DB is lost.

CopyDatabaseUsers - FALSE
CopyDatabaseRoles - FALSE
Result - the user-login mapping at SOURCE DB is lost.

SQL Job Stopped But Underlying File Remains 'IN USE'

Jul 23, 2007

I have an SQL Job whose sole step is to run an SSIS Package via the File System mode. The .dtsx file itself is located on the server where SQL resides.

The SSIS task looks inside a specific directory and if a qualifying file exists, archives the file, unzips the file, rename the contents and, eventually, processess the files.

Invariably, if i Stop the Job before it has completed successfully, i notice that the underlying file (in this case, a .zip file) remains 'in use'. If i try and move the file or rename the file, the OS says "no can do; the file is in use".

but no matter where i look on the network when I go to Manage (right-clicking on My Computer), i cannot fine any reference under Shared Folders | Open Files to "close" the file.

can anyone shed some light on this? ie, how to close, etc.

thx very much.

Report Window Opens, Remains Blank

Aug 30, 2007

I am trying to open reports through an existing application. When I click the button to run the report, the new window opens, appears to be trying to load (the windows logo in the top corner is flowing, the hourglass is present), and then stops. I am left with a blank window, no report, and no error message.

I am able to view and run the reports through the Report Server. Other users are able to run the reports through the application.

Any ideas?

SQL 7 Database Lost?? HELP!!

Jan 30, 2004

I really hope someone has an idea or two that they'd like to share. Here's the deal...I have a customer who has SQL 7 running on an NT 4 server. Under normal circumstances, our client software connects to a DB running on that server. They recently had to reboot the server and now all of the clients on the network can no longer connect to our database...they get an error message similar to this:

Error -2147467259: SQL Server does not exist or access denied.

Additional Info:
When logging into the server, the service manager shows a "green arrow" in the system tray so I'm assuming SQL is running.

They are running some form of replication to another identical server.

They recently had to replace some network equipment on that segment, but everyone can still ping the server by name and IP. Also, they can access the virtual website on that machine's IIS.

Nobody knows the SA password.

As a test, I tried logging in using one of our software's "internal" login/passwords, but still could not login.

As a test, I tried to create a DSN to connect to SQL using the "guest" account (which should exist) but the wizard wouldn't get past the screen where you provide the authentication info.

Anybody have any advice for me/us?

SQL 2012 :: Deadlock XDL File Remains Empty Even During Deadlocks

Mar 13, 2015

In order to troubleshoot some deadlocking that I am seeing on SQL Server, I am trying to capture the Deadlock XML by enabling the Events Extraction Settings option 'Save Deadlock XML events separately' and specifying a Deadlock XML results file.

Meanwhile, I am also tracing the Deadlock graph, Lock:Deadlock, and Lock:Deadlock Chain events. Yet the xdl file remains empty even though I am getting hits on the events themselves in the SQL Profiler trace.

Also, I have the following trace flag settings enabled.


Why the xdl file remains empty even though (I think) it should contain some XML for deadlocks that are actually happening?

Apparent Successful Upgrade To 2005 But Old (2000) SQL Server Remains

Mar 15, 2007

I used the SQL Server 2005 Upgrade Advisor to upgrade from SQL Server 2000 Enterprise to 2005 Standard. The only complaint I got concerned DTS packages, but I had none anyway. When I open SQL Server Management Studio, I can run queries, but they're against tables in the old 2000 databases. The SQL engine and Server agent are version version 8.0. Not surprising that new TSQL statements like 'BACKUP SERVICE MASTER KEY TO FILE' won't work.

Do I have to uninstall my previous version before upgrading?

Database Recoverability When Log Device Lost

Jul 26, 1999

My question has to do with the ability to recover a suspect database in the event that the transaction log device file becomes corrupt or is deleted.

Specifically, consider the case where a user database has it's data device on one hard disk and the log device file on a 2nd hard disk. The database is set to truncate log on checkpoint.

If the disk fails on which the log device file resides, the user database will be marked as suspect. Assume this disk is replaced and rebuilt from a tape backup, including the log device file (which was backed up to tape during off hours.)

Will SQL Server have any problems with this? Will database recovery have any problems with this (assuming the restored transaction log was empty)? Any other issues?

Thanks in advance!

Lost Account Passwords When I Imported A Database

Feb 9, 2006

I used a DTS package to import data from one database to a new database (different servers) and it seemed to work fine with the exception that it lost all the passwords. I got one error telling me that for security reasons, it left all passwords NULL. Sure enough - they are now all blank.

Ideas - any good articles with quick fixes ???

Thanks a bunch - I am just getting into a lot of unusual problems this week.

SQLExpress Database File Auto-creation Erro...........Im Lost!

Mar 28, 2008

here is my error message wich can also be seen live at www.aspdoug.com/menu  log in with  user: doug  pass: macromedia!
Server Error in '/menu' Application.

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) Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code. SQLExpress database file auto-creation error:
The connection string specifies a local Sql Server Express instance using a database location within the applications App_Data directory. The provider attempted to automatically create the application services database because the provider determined that the database does not exist. The following configuration requirements are necessary to successfully check for existence of the application services database and automatically create the application services database:

If the applications App_Data directory does not already exist, the web server account must have read and write access to the applications directory. This is necessary because the web server account will automatically create the App_Data directory if it does not already exist.
If the applications App_Data directory already exists, the web server account only requires read and write access to the applications App_Data directory. This is necessary because the web server account will attempt to verify that the Sql Server Express database already exists within the applications App_Data directory. Revoking read access on the App_Data directory from the web server account will prevent the provider from correctly determining if the Sql Server Express database already exists. This will cause an error when the provider attempts to create a duplicate of an already existing database. Write access is required because the web server accounts credentials are used when creating the new database.
Sql Server Express must be installed on the machine.
The process identity for the web server account must have a local user profile. See the readme document for details on how to create a local user profile for both machine and domain accounts.

DB Engine :: Will Transaction Log Backups Not Free Up Log During Full Backups

Nov 15, 2015

The space allocated to the Log in question is 180 GB. During this time period I was running TLog backups every 5 minutes, yet the log continued to chew through to 80 GB used, even after the process was complete and a final TLog backup had been taken. It continued to stay very large until the Full backup was complete -- or something else that I'm unaware of completed. Like every other DBA I typically take a TLog backup to shrink the log, but what appeared to be the case here was the Full completed and it released the used log space. All said, will Transaction Log backups not free up the log during Full backups?

I know that I have read not to backup a database over a netwrok. So I am curious as to what others are doing out there. BAckup to your local hard drive on the server and then move the backup files to a repository some where on the network? Do others have a file structure out on another server that stores all of the backups from all of the different servers that have SQL 7.0 on them? We are a small company and are just starting to migrate data to SQL Server 7.0.

Database Backups

Mar 16, 2006

I have to perform a backup for disaster recovery purposes before an application upgrade. The upgrade will alter the database and stored procedures. My cuurent backup takes a backup of master and msdb weekly. The user database uses the Full Recovery model and is backed up daily at 21:00 and the logs daily at 13:00. Assuming the databse is modified between the last backup and the upgrade starting at 9:00am what should my backup stratergy be for roll back purposes.
1) backup master, msdb and the user Database to a different location than the normal backups. Use these to restore if required
2) backup the master, msdb and user databases using the same jobs and therefore overwriting the original evening backups
3) do nothing and just restore master and msdb from a backup and replay the logs to a given point in time for thr user database should the upgrade fail

Any help or suggestions will be much appreciated.

SQL Server Database Backups

Jul 28, 1998

I am looking for the best method to backup SQL Server databases. Currently we are
running a dump database statement to disk and backing up the files to tape through Arcserve.

One problem that I am having is the statement to dump the database. I would like to retain
the dump for at least three days and be able to restore the database from any one of those
three days. My current statement is:

but, every other day I receive the message from SQL executive:
"Can`t open dump device `D:BACKUPCHOIS.BAK`, device error or device off line.
Please consult the SQL Server error log for more details. (Message 3201)"

What am I doing wrong? Any suggestions?


Is there anyway to tell the Maintenance Wizard to delete the backups. I tried using the wizard but
the backup files still remain on the disk and I have to delete them every week.

Database Backups && Compression

Jun 19, 2007

Hi All

I have a database which is 72GB, which is backed up every night as part of the maintenance plan. I have plenty of storage space, and the server that runs the database is fairly powerful (quad-processor 3.2ghz, 64bit, 48GB RAM) and is part of an active-passive cluster. The database backup is also copied to a SAN location.

My issue is with the size of the backup file. As part of the Disaster Recovery plan, I need to copy this database backup file accross the network to a remote site, so that in the event of a disaster at the site, business can continue at the remote site after restoring the database backup file. However, my database backup file is so big that I cannot copy it accross the network in time for the next morning. I have tried using WinRar and have managed to achieve a file about 20% of its original size, but it takes 2 hours to produce this file.

Is there any recommended reeading for this type of issue? Log shipping / mirroring has been investigated and will be part of the DR model but the 'powers that be' insist on having a full copy performed to the remote site.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance guys n gals :-)

Connetion Fails Suddenly

Apr 9, 2008

I've had this connection used for months and months. The setupQL Express + VS2008. In that particular app I use only one DB Connection but there are about 10 other Sql Server Dbs that I connect to in other apps.

I am still in a development stage.

Today I've decided to connect also via the Server Explorer in VS2008. All connections were established easy. Immediately after that a connection.Open ( ) statement failed with the error message

System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Cannot open user default database. Login failed.

At the Open statement I did a break and with Ctrl + Alt + E got all exceptions. They are too numerous to show in here. One of the messages I found was that the failure occured in System.dll.

Any ideas as to why it happened?

I disconnected (deleted) the DB in question--no change. I deleted ALL DB connections from the server explorer in VS2008 - no change. I see the only option now and that is to reinstall the VS2008. I am kind of sick and tired of doing it.

Also I've been trying to move on to Linq and it is my understanding that in order to do Linq I have to establish connections via VS2008 not just connection strings. Is it right? Perhaps I am mistaken?

This particular connection is not that crutial. I can survice without it with this app but for others it would be impossible to continue development.

Any help will be appreciated.



Some additional information has transpired. I checked Sql Server Object Explorer and immediately determined that the DB in question lost ALL its tables. There was just an empty shell: the name, no tables, no system tables, no Programmability, nothing.

I "deleted" this DB and reconnected it. The connection with my app miraculously restored itself. Now I could run the app with no problem and the connection to this DB could be Opened in the app. However, when I tried to set up the connection again in the Server Explorer of VS2008 the same thing promptly happened. Now I got this exception back.

It is not the way VS2005 behaved. Is it normal?
