  • 1. Model Database
    In SQL Server 2008 I have edited dbo.model to create a small table (3 columns with some indexes, keys and constraints). I would like to use the dbo.model table multiple times as the source for the structure of tables in a single new database. Also, I would like to see any edits made to the structure of the dbo.model table reflected in all of the decendent tables. These are going to be very small tables (probably averaging about 100 rows). So using the default behavior in Object Explorer of creating an entire new database to create each table would not be very efficient. Is it possible to decend multiple tables from dbo.model into a single database?
  • 2. SQL Express 2005 command line shutdown
    I am writing a batch file to shut down SQLEXPRESS when there is a power failure. APC PowerChute can run a series of command prior to powering off the server. I've listed the pertinent services. NET STOP "IIS Admin Service" NET STOP "SQL Server Browser" NET STOP "SQL Server FullText Search (SQLEXPRESS)" NET STOP "SQL Server Active Directory Helper" <<<< This is set to disabled NET STOP "SQL Server VSS Writer" NET STOP "SQL Server (SQLEXPRESS)" Do I have the order of shutdown correct? Am I missing any other things involved with the shutdown of SQLExpress? Thanks Scott

    I have tried to run SQL 2008 studio against several sql2005 servers with some strange results. Tables suddenly not vissible, unable to change password etc. Is it not backward compatible ? Sincerely \\Jonas B
  • 4. backing up a website remotely
    I'm looking for an "affordable" method to backup a web server, including full system and incremental backups and also file backups. I have found several sites that provide this service, but none within my budget. I'd love to be able to just run Symantec BackupExec or other similar package on the server itself, and then download the results to my desktop, burning them to CD/DVD, but even at 3GB, my DSL is slow as a slug. However, if I find a good software product that can run over a cable connection, I'll have a friend of mine run it from his systems, since he has cable internet Can someone please suggest an affordable (about $100/month) backup service or software product that will allow for fast, compressed downloads?? Thanks. J

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
