  • 2. SAN: tempdb and log files not isolated from others files
    HI, SQL Server 7.0 on NT 4 (clustered) - 3 DB totaling 7 + 2 + 1 = 10 GIG - 100 users - Jobs that insert many (1000 - 5000) rows in databases are executed during office hour. Our technical staff want to install our databases on a new Compaq SAN in this way --> One big array containg 36 disk drives. They told me that they can create "logical volume" for RAID 1 and RAID5 but "tempdb" and "log files" are not going to be isolated on a small group on disk. Data files, log files, tempdb and others files are all going to be striped on the big array of 36 disks. In others word, we can have 1 piece of tempdb, 1 piece on log, 1 piece of data file, 1 piece of a .bak file etc.... on the same disk. With this scenario, is it possible to encounter bad performace ? Thank you danny

    What is the best way to manage about 54 dell servers running about 360 databases on them. Any idea on what will reduce a lot of manual work on this type of environment will work. Thanks, Aboki
  • 4. Can't delete user
    Dan, make the objects owned by others, e.g. sp_changeobjectowner, or drop the objects first if they are no longer needed, then drop the user.

  • 5. registering SQL Server behind firewall
    We just implemented a SQL Server, that is in a PDMZ (public facing dmz). It is using a local account to run the services as it it not on our corporate network. We cannot register the server. Does anyone know what ports need to be open, in order to register this SQL Server? In talking with our network folks, I'm pretty sure 1433 / 1434 are open. Any ideas....Thanks. Tom.

Unable allocate min server memory size to greater than 1GB

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 
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

would occur, if I have this much ram?

Thanks for your help
