  • 1. how to know which filegroup a table is using with a SQL query
    there are several filegroups I want to know which filegroup a table is using with a SQL query (i think there may be a SYSTEM TABLE I can query to know it)
  • 2. Sysobject Status in 2005
    We have a program that pulls a list of tables from the SQL server. We recently upgraded the SQL 2000 server to SQL 2005, and it gets no responses to the request for the list of tables. It is pulling the list from sysobjects, but is getting 0 responses because of a "And Status > 0". In SQL 2005, this always reports 0. It appears SQL 2005 dropped this column, and only includes a response at all for backwards compatibility, but while we don't get an error, we get a completely unusable result (no responses instead of the responses we need). Is there a way to change the default SQL 2005 response for status? I would rather it showed all 1s rather than all 0s.
  • 3. passing parameters
    I have query like the code below in the traditional database. Do yo think I can pass the OLAP parameters to the tranditional database and the traditional database pass back the result after running the query? Do you think it is possible to convert something like this code to the MDX for OLAP so I don't need to runt he query in the tradinational database? I have been studying it for few weeks but I have no idea how to make it happen yet. thank you! ---------------------code------------I need to get the result from this as a fact table in OLAP--------------- select gender, visit-date-year from big-table where visit-date between start-date and end-date group by person-id, floor( days-between(visit-date,start- date) / de-dup-interval), gender, visit-date-year ; thank you!!!
  • 4. Setting up Database Mirroring (SP2)
    Hello, I am setting up database mirroring without a witness. Server A is the principal and B the partner. All steps have executed fine, expect this command on the principal server (A) fails- ALTER DATABASE [test] SET PARTNER ='TCP://b.domain.com:1544' -- ERRORS "The server network address "TCP://b.domain.com:1544" can not be reached or does not exist. Check the network address name and that the ports for the local and remote endpoints are operational. " I can tell that the end point "TCP://b.domain.com:1544" is functioning. I am able to connect to b on port 1544 using Management Studio. The corresponding command on the partner (b) works fine. ALTER DATABASE [test] SET PARTNER ='TCP://a.domain.com:1544' --WORKS Any clues? Ken

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

would occur, if I have this much ram?

Thanks for your help
