    I want to migrate a complete database from development server to production server.

  • 4. Automatically generating a diagram
    Hi all, I'm wondering, is there any way to have SQL Server automatically generate a diagram via Enterprise Manager? The situation is, I have created a database by executing a big as script of SQL. The script created the tables and views and added the primary key constraints etc. However there isnt a diagram available to help me understand the schema a bit easier. Is there some way to have Enterprise Manager interpret the schema and the constraints and reverse engineer a pretty diagram for me? Thanks to anyone who can advise Kindest Regards tce

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 
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

Hello All,

I have a cluster of two nodes running Windows 2003 Enterprise Edition with 
SQL Server 2000 Enterprise. Each node has 32 GB. And I set the  max server 
memory and min server memory to 28 GB, but the maximum memory was shown only 
16 GB, and SQL Server reports "unable to allocation minimum server memory". 
PAE is in the boot.ini and AWE is enabled in the SQL Server. Any idea?

4.SQL2005: Unable to allocate enough memory to start 'Query Processor'

Hi All,

I am using SQL Server 2005. It was working fine.
However all of a sudden I am getting following error.

It fails to start the MSSQLSERVER and SQL Server Agent services with and
error: The request failed or the service did not respond in a timely
fashion. Consult the event log or other applicable error logs for details.

In the log I discover other error:

Any help or pointer?
