  • 3. Sql Server Express *Studio* - on Windows Vista Beta 2
    Has anyone else had problems installing Sql Server Management Studio Express onto a machine running with the Windows Vista Beta 2 OS?? I am getting error code 29508: Software\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Tools\ShellSEM as the error message. I ran: msiexec /i C:\Software\SQLServer2005_SSMSEE.msi /l*V C:\Users\John\setup.log.log to see what the problem was (or try at least) and it seems that it falls over in the middle of doing some registry entries. I am at a loss so hoping someone will take pity and give me a hand... I downloaded and installed SQL Server Express 1st which was successful. Thanks in advance. John, Perth
  • 4. Restoring the Master db to a different sql200 server with the same
    Hello, I built a new sql server and Im trying to move the Master db to this new server. I still have the old server so I just stopped the sql service and moved the 2 master files over and then started the sql service and it starts fine. But when I try to go into Ent manager, I cant expand. Is there a document on how to Move a Master DB to a totally different server? I made the new server have the same name but I put it on a AD domain instead of the NT4.0 domain like the other one. Thanks.

microsoft ole db provider for sql server missing

While creating a linked server on SQL Server 2000 I found there were no 
providers. How do I add providers?

Have similar problem.

client:  MDAC 2.7SP1, PTSlite 8.0.194 (AS-server has no SPs)

1) Use excel to get udl-dialog. In listbox i can choose "Microsoft OLE DB
Provider for
OLAP Services [8.0]". When i click next for either service i get "Provider
is no longer
vailable. Ensure that the provider is installed properly".
2) Use excel to use connection to an olap-cube (a connection that worked a
few days ago
on this client). Message "Initialization of the data source failed. Check
the database server or
contact your database administrator. Make sure the external database is
available, and then
try the operation again. If you see this mesage again, create a new data
source to connect
to the database."
3) Use excel to make a new connection to an olap-cube:  i) name the data
source, OK
ii) select olap-provider, OK?  iii) click connect ==> nothing happens, no
frost, just nothing

2.Problem connecting to local SQL Server 2005 Express using "Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server"

I have this really strange problem happening.  I've installed SQL Server 
2005 Express many times and it has always worked fine (Mixed Mode 
Authentication, Default Instance, Enable TCP/IP, user 'sa').

And then I connect to the database with a UDL that uses the provider of 
"Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server".

For this one install with Windows XP on it I get an error on the local 
computer saying that the SQL Server doesn't exist or Access Denied when I do 
the Test Connection in the Data Link Properties.

If I switch the provider to "SQL Native Client" then it works.  But I can't 
use this as I have some other programs that are hard-wired to use "Microsoft 
OLE DB Provider for SQL Server".

I can connect to the database using thee Studio Express but it is probably 
using the "SQL Native Client"

An odd thing about this is if I connect remotely to that database using the 
provider "Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server" it works fine so I know 
the TCP/IP portion is working.  It only fails to work connecting on that 
local computer.  The logged in user is part of the Administrator group and I 
installed SQL Server 2005 Express under that user.

I'm flummoxed as to why this is not working.  I would sure appreciate any 
ideas anyone might have



3.Missing SQL OLE DB for SQL Server Provider

I have some DTS packages on SQL Server 2000 which connect to Oracle (Oracle 
provider for OLE DB) as the datasource and SQL server 2000 (Microsoft OLE DB 
for SQL Server) as the destination.
I have defined a datapump task with some mappings from the Oracle View to 
the SQL server table.
I wanted to change some properties of the datapump and I got an error that 
the SQL Server provider did not exist for the destination.

Investigating, I now see that there is no "Microsoft OLE DB for SQL Server" 
connection available. Not on this server, my test server, my local pc.

If I could replace the provider with SQL Native Client that could work but I 
will lose my column mapping which is complicated and easily messed up.

The common cause seems to be the prescence of SQL Native Client - on the pc 
because it's a dev pc and I have installed some 2005 database and Studio 
products, on the test server for the same reason, on the dev server it might 
be the dba playing with msoft reporting services or the like, he can't tell 

Saving the package to the test server results in me being unable to open 
that package with Designer. (Error mentions the SQL OLE DB 
provider/Connection read/General Network Error)

I want my "Microsoft OLE DB for SQL Server" back - can anyone help ?

Thanks all.

4.Error initializing provider (Microsoft OLE DB provider for oracle)


-Microsoft Analysis server was installed by local machine
administrator account in win2k server. Our warehouse is in Oracle8i
and trying to use Analysis server to connect through ODBC and create
-OLAP_Administrators group was automatically created by Analysis
server and I added my NT domain user (xyz) to it apart from the local
Administrator to access from remote machine.
- First there was permission problem with the data folder access while
saving the cube and we gave permissions for the OLAP_Administrators
group to read execute and modify the data folder of Analysis server.
This solved this issue.

- When using data source, the problem is:
- When Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Oracle is used as new data source
and connection is Tested, it gives "An error in initializing provider.
Oracle error occured but error message could not be retrieved from
Oracle". Also obviously it does not process the cube.

Actually we checked location of the dll for this provider is there and
it is in WINNT/system32 folder and gave read and execute permission to
OLAP_ADMINISTRATORS group for these folders and also to the provider
Still getting the error.
(Note: When using Oracle Provider for OLE DB through DSN creation and
using this DSN through Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers, it
connects and able to create cube. Through DSN route also Microsoft OLE
DB Provider for Oracle gives the same error. All the oracle folders
have permission for OLAP_Administrators group.).

Question::: Is there any specific permission(s) that need to be
enabled in the windows system for any file/folder to have Microsoft
OLE DB Provider for Oracle working? Or is there anything that needs to
be done to have this work?
(When it was installed on another windows 2k professional machine,
Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Oracle worked and Microsoft OLE DB
Provider for Oracle is very very slow so in server we need Microsoft
OLE DB Provider for Oracle.) Please help.

In the windows professional 2k system, the user was having
adminstrative rights to install but was domain user. In windows server
2k system the user was having administrative rights but was the local
server user and not a domain user. Does this make a difference and
anthing to be done with this? Please help...

Thanks & Regards
