  • 1. reading sql server error logs
    Using SS2000. Instead of using xp_readerrorlog, I'd like to create my own stored procedure to read the logs. I want to create a web page that I can filter by date. What tables are the logs stored in? Thanks, -- Dan D.
  • 2. SQL installation hosed 2K Server
    I have a Windows 2K Advanced Server SP4, completely updated, running Active Directory & DNS. I installed SQL Server 2000 Enterprise and SQLSP3, rebooted, and I received the event log message: The Distributed Link Tracking Client service hung on starting. Although, the service did start. Then strange things started happening, menu freezing, IE "stuck" (wouldn't even try to find a page) but Firefox could, couldn't open the control panel, had to cold boot, etc. Went back in to safe mode and disabled the MSSQLServer service, rebooted, and everything worked fine. Tried it again for a sanity check and received the same results. I've had 2K Server with AD/DNS & SQL 2K on this same machine before with earlier service packs & hotfix's, no problems. Has anyone else experienced this? Google search produced nothing similar. Thanks, Don

Unable allocate min server memory size to greater than 1GB

Postby Sm9lIE5hbQ » Thu, 30 Mar 2006 15:58:01 GMT

I have installed a SQL Sever 2000 Standard Edition with Service Pack 4 on a 
Windows 2003 Standard Server with 2GB memory. But it does not allow me to set 
 the min server memory size that is greater than 1GB.  Do any one know what 
the problem is ? Thx.

do you get an error? can you set it via sp_configure? technically, your sql 
can use up to 2GB on win2k3 std. though, this would be unwise 'cuz you have 
to leave some for the OS.

Check the setting for 'max server memory'. 'min server memory' will not be 
allowed to exceed that. Also, with /3gb enabled, 1gb is reserved for the 
Windows kernel. Ensure that in your boot.ini that /3gb or /pae are NOT 
enabled as 2gb of RAM is too low to be using those options (both eat more 
free memory for the extra memory structures).

I represent Joe Nam to revise the question.
1. our sql server have set "use a fixed memory size" to 1800M, since the 
total memory of sql server exist 2G.
2. We don't know why the usage of physical memory only allocate below 1G of 
RAM.
Please kindly advise the problem of our sql server setting.
Thank you for all advanced experts.

1.unable to allocate 'min server memory'

I have SQL2000 Enterprise running on a Win2003 Enterprise machine, with 16GB
of ram....and no other applications. I start the database up and get an
error "unable to allocate 'min server memory'", which doesn't allow the DB
to startup unless I bring the setting down to around 1GB.. Any idea why this
would occur, if I have this much ram?

Thanks for your help

Hi All,

I am using SQL Server 2005. It was working fine.
