  • 1. Tables have lost permissions after moving to different server
    I recently moved a database between servers using the detach/attach method. Both servers are running MS SQL 2000 SP4. I've noticed that the tables in the destination database have lost all their associated permissions. Does anyone know why this might have happened and how I can restore them without going through each table and manually applying the permissions? Thanks in advance.
  • 2. Top or Count
    Hello, Could someone please tell me which is the fastest way of finding whether one or more records are returned by a specific criteria. I'm not interested in the number of records - just whether one or more records are returned. For instance should I use: SELECT COUNT(ProductId) FROM Products WHERE SupplierId = 1 or maybe: SELECT TOP 1 ProductId FROM Products WHERE SupplierId = 1 ORDER BY ProductId Many thanks Dan

  • 4. Looking for SQL-Server documenter
    Hi everybody, I'm looking for a documenter for the SQL-Server. It should describe the tables, views with its structure (fieldnames, type, length, etc.) and equally important it should be possible to export this information in a file (XML, CSV, whatever). Does anybody knows a tool like that and if so, where to get it? Thx in advance Michael
  • 5. can replication works for a Data Warehouse ?
    Hi , I am trying to set replication for an exsiting Data Center (let's call it DC) from the various databases in Server1 my problem : 1) i set up the publication with the snapshot to keep existing data in the table(there's already data) if same table name is found , however, the synchronization failed becoz of duplicate index/key ques : shldn't it just ignore those duplicates ? and even if there's new data for that table it couldn't replicate over due to the duplicates 2) i have also tried to use this option "to delete those matching with row filter" but i realised that those that are the same record it would be deleted and re-replicated over but those in the destination that not in the source table have been deleted 3) i finally tried using this option "to delete data and re-create the table and it works but the issue here is i have many databases to be replicated over to the data warhouse , i shldn't be forced to purposely removed a table with data to somewhere else and then after replicate is successful then copy that data over could any one kindly advise tks & rdgs

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
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
