SQL Server 2008R2 Active-Active cluster with standard edition?

Hi all,
can I have a 2 node cluster (Windows Server 2008R2 Datacenter Edition: node_1 and node_2) forming a failover cluster with 2 instances of SQL Server 2008R2 Standard Edition (instance_A and instance_B) with:
instance_A running on node_1
instance_B running on node_2

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Please find the pre-requisites for SQL server cluster installation .
    Before Installing SQL cluster we need to have a Windows Cluster with required shared storage space and DTC Service configured in Windows
    Cluster.
    Be ready with the plan of where the SQL to be installed and where the Database, Log, Temp DB and Backup are to be stored.
    If you require SOP for this please share your mail id .i will send the same .

  • Services configuration for sql server 2008r2 in a Windows Cluster

    Hello,
    We have a Windows Server 2008 Cluster with Sql Server 2008r2 installed on node 2; when node 2 fails (we don't still know why, it's a 'bluescreen' long history), the service goes from node2 to node1, but sometimes the services are not automatically activated.
    What is the theoretical startup settings for sql services (for the sql and the agent), manual, disabled, automatic... ?
    Also, sometimes, the service for the sql server in node2 stops, but we don't know why, and we are not able to see any significant information on the event viewer. How can we trace why Sql Server stopped ?
    Thanks !

    >What is the theoretical startup settings for sql services
    Manual.  The cluster will start them.
    >How can we trace why Sql Server stopped ?
    Look in the SQL Server Log.

  • Failure to install SQL Server 2012 SP1 CU8/9 with a "Failed to retrieve data for this request." error

    Hi all,
    Has anyone come across SQL Server 2012 SP1 CU8/9 failing to install with a “Failed to retrieve data for this request.” error.
    The error is too generic for a useful search on web, for me at least anyway.
    Had no problems patching a whole bunch of other servers in the same environment.
    I’m no good at reading these error logs. For some reason the primary replica is referenced in the detailed log???
    The CU8/9 patch has been run by both Domain Admins and local Admin with no luck.
    We are trying to patch a secondary failover replica. (SharePoint 2013 is installed on this server.)
    This is from the summary log:

    Hello SQL Ranger,
    Thanks for posting the detailed log. I dont have exact solution for this but I can give you some hint what could be reason patch has failed below message points to fact that there is some issue with account which is used to install CU patch.Have alook at
    below log.It says that when patch was trying to get details from other node in cluster it was not able to.

    IMO I strongly feel it is issue with the account. Microsoft has also documented about this for SQL Server 2008 .Have a look at following links
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-US;2000257
    Please also assign privilege mentioned in below link

  • SQL Server 2008R2 SP2 Query optimizer memory leak ?

    It looks like we are facing a SQL Server 2008R2 queery optimizer memory leak.
    We have below version of SQL Server
    Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 (SP2) - 10.50.4000.0 (X64)

     Standard Edition (64-bit) on Windows NT 6.1 <X64> (Build 7601: Service Pack 1)
    The instance is set MAximum memory tro 20 GB.
    After executing a huge query (2277 kB generated by IBM SPSS Clementine) with tons of CASE and a lot of AND/OR statements in the WHERE and CASE statements and muliple subqueries the server stops responding on Out of memory in the internal pool
    and the query optimizer has allocated all the memory.
    From Management Data Warehouse we can find that the query was executed at

    On the other side MDW reports that the MEMORYCLERK_SQLOPTIMIZER increases since the execution of the query up to the point of OUTOF MEMORY, but the Average value is 54.7 MB during that period as can be seen on attached graph.
    We have encountered this issue already two times (every time the critical query is executed).

    Hi,
    This does seems to me kind of memory Leak and actually it is from SQL Optimizer which leaked memory from buffer pool so much that it did not had any memory to be allocated for new page.

    Can you post complete DBCC MEMORYSTATUS output which was generated in errorlog. Is this the only message in errorlog or there are some more messages before and after it.
    select (SUM(single_pages_kb)*1024)/8192 as total_stolen_pages, type
    from sys.dm_os_memory_clerks
    group by typeorder by total_stolen_pages desc
    and
    select sum(pages_allocated_count * page_size_in_bytes)/1024,type from sys.dm_os_memory_objects
    group by type
    If you can post the output of above two queries with dbcc memorystaus output on some shared drive and share location with us here. I would try to find out what is leaking memory.
    You can very well apply SQL Server 2008 r2 SP3 and see if this issue subsides but I am not sure whether this is fixed or actually it is a bug.

  • SQL Server 2008R2 vs 2012 OLTP performance difference - log flushes size different

    Hi all,
    I'm doing some performance test against 2 identical virtual machine (each VM has the same virtual resources and use the same physical hardware).
    The 1° VM has Windows Server 2008R2 and SQL Server 2008R2 Standard Edition
    the 2° VM has Windows Server 2012R2 and SQL Server 2012 SP2 + CU1 Standard Edition
    I'm using hammerDB (http://hammerora.sourceforge.net/) has benchmark tool to simulate TPC-C test.
    I've noticed a significative performance difference between SQL2008R2 and SQL2012, 2008R2 does perform better. Let's explain what I've found:
    I use a third VM as client where HammerDB software is installed, I run the test against the two SQL Servers (one server at a time), in SQL2008R2 I reach an higher number of transaction per minutes.
    HammerDB creates a database on each database server (so the database are identical except for the compatibility level), and then HammerDB execute a sequence of query (insert-update) simulating the TPC-C standard, the sequence is identical on both servers.
    Using perfmon on the two servers I've found a very interesting thing:
    In the disk used by the hammerDB database's log (I use separate disk for data and log) I've monitored the Avg. Disk Bytes/Write and I've noticed tha the SQL2012 writes to the log with smaller packet (let's say an average of 3k against an average of 5k written
    by the SQL 2008R2).
    I've also checked the value of Log flushes / sec on both servers and noticed that SQL2012 do, on average, more log flushes per second, so more log flushes of less bytes...
    I've searched for any documented difference in the way log buffers are flushed to disk between 2008r2 and 2012 but found no difference.
    Anyone can piont me in the correct direction?

    Andrea,
    1) first of all fn_db_log exposes a lot of fields that do not exist in SQL2008R2
    This is correct, though I can't elaborate as I do not know how/why the changes were made.
    2) for the same DML or DDL the number of log record generated are different
    I thought as much (but didn't know the workload).
    I would like to read and to study what this changes are! Have you some usefu link to interals docs?
    Unfortunately I cannot offer anything as the function used is currently undocumented and there are no published papers or documentation by MS on reading log records/why/how. I would assume this to all be NDA information by Microsoft.
    Sorry I can't be of more help, but you at least know that the different versions do have behavior changes.

  • How to link Excel 2010 .XLSX file to SQL server 2008R2 - a method that actually works?

    I have been trying unsuccessfully to link my excel file to SQL server like I used to with SQL 2005.
    In SQL 2008R2 I have installed the 64-bit data access components from Office 2010 to get the  provider 'Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0' avilable.
    When I try this command:
    SELECT
    FROM
    OPENDATASOURCE(
    'Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0',
    'Data Source="E:\ADUpdates\Employee List1.xlsx"; Extended properties=Excel 12.0')...[Sheet1$]
    I get this error:
    Msg 7399, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
    The OLE DB provider "Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0" for linked server "(null)" reported an error. Access denied.
    Msg 7301, Level 16, State 2, Line 1
    Cannot obtain the required interface ("IID_IDBCreateCommand") from OLE DB provider "Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0" for linked server "(null)".
    The Access Denied error seems to be form the worksheet and not the file itself. Evidence is that if I enter a bogus sheet name it tells me the sheet doesn't exist and after this error the file is locked open and can't be saved again from Excel until the
    query windows is closed. The sheet is not protected in Excel so I don't know how access to it can be denied.
    Does anyone actually have this working in SQL 2008R2?

    Some minor progress on this issue by running SQL Server service under a domain account with Administrator priv on the SQL server.
    This query now works in a query window:
    SELECT * FROM OPENDATASOURCE( 'Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0', 'Data Source="E:\ADUpdates\Employee List.xlsx"; Extended properties=Excel 12.0')...[EmployeeData];
    However, creating a Linked server object for the same spreadsheet still does not work:
    EXEC master.dbo.sp_addlinkedserver @server = N'TEST', @srvproduct=N'Excel 12.0', @provider=N'Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0', @datasrc=N'E:\ADUpdates\Employee List.xlsx'
    The test connection to the linked server failed.
    Cannot initialize the data source object of OLE DB provider "Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0" for linked server "TEST".
    OLE DB provider "Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0" for linked server "TEST" returned message "Unrecognized database format 'E:\ADUpdates\Employee List.xlsx'.". (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 7303)

    Thank you,
    Steve -

    The error message appears to be related to a debug session and not come from the actual crash.
    So all I know is that you hade a server crash. I don't even know exactly what that means. Did Windows bite the dust? Or was it only SQL Server?
    Assuming the latter, I would expect the SQL Server errorlog to have some information (and that would be ERRORLOG.1 or earlier, since the server have been restarted), but if SQL Server died the output may be incomplete.
    There may be also dump files, but as I rarely look into these, I am not sure how to interpret them. But I am quite confident that "Unable to verify TimeStamp..." is not the reason SQL Server went down.
    I would suggest the following course:
    *  If the server is not critical, do nothing. As long as it has onlyl happened once, it has only happened once.
    *  If the server is critical, open a case with Microsoft if you are not able to figure out the reason yourself. The key here is "Unknown exception - code 000042ac".
    *  If it happens again, you should absolutely open a case. An important thing here is whether the stack dump is identical or something different. If the stack dumps are identical, you may have hit a bug in SQL Server or the OS, and applying CUs or OS
    fixes could help if it is a known issue. If the stack dump is something else, you have ghosts in the machine - that is, bad hardware.

  • Issue importing flat files into SQL server 2008R2

    I have csv files that the last column may not have data. SSIS (version 2008R2) will insert the next row's data into the empty cells, which causes my package to fail.
    I know this is resolved in 2012 but we are using 2008R2 still. Any suggestions?
    Thanks.

    Hi sqlBI2014,
    After testing the issue that Flat File Connection Manager cannot handle file with uneven number of columns in each row in my SQL Server 2008 R2 environment, I can reproduce it.
    Based on my research, the issue is caused by the Column Delimiter gets first preference and then Row delimiter. So the next row data would be inserted in the empty column cell. This is by design in SQL Server 2005, SQL Server 2008 or SQL Server 2008 R2.
    Good news is that the issue is fixed in SQL Server Data Tools which comes with SQL Server 2012. In SQL Server 2012, by default, the Flat File Connection Manager always checks for a row delimiter in unquoted data, and starts a new row when a row delimiter
    is found. This enables the connection manager to correctly parse files with rows that are missing column fields.
    If you still want to fix the issue in SQL Server 2008 R2, there is a sample component posted to the CodePlex that might help you with this:

  • How could I create a "Linked Server" link from SQL Server 2008R2 64-Bit to Oracle Database 11.2 64-Bit?

    How could I create a "Linked Server" link from SQL Server 2008R2 64-Bit to Oracle Database 11.2 64-Bit?
    Let's say the SQL Server and Oracle Database are in the same Company Internet Network.
    I have the code, but I do not know how to use it. Such as what is System DSN Name? Where could I get it. What does it look like?
    Do I need to install any Oracle Client Software in order to link from SQL Server to Oracle? Or SQL Server has the built-in drivers installed already that I can directly create a Linked Server from SQL Server to Oracle?
    I need to know details. Thanks.
    USE master
    go
    EXEC sp_addlinkedserver
         @server  = '{Linked Server Name}'
        ,@srvproduct = '{System DSN Name}'
        ,@provider  = 'MSDASQL'
        ,@datasrc  = '{System DSN Name}'
    EXEC sp_addlinkedsrvlogin
         @rmtsrvname = '{Linked Server Name}'
        ,@useself  = 'False'
        ,@locallogin = NULL
        ,@rmtuser  = '{Oracle User Name}'
        ,@rmtpassword = '{Oracle User Password}'

    You need an OLE DB provider for Oracle. There is one that ships with Windows, but it only supports very old versions of Oracle. Oracle has an OLE DB provider that you can use. I don't know if it's part of Oracle Client or how it is bundled.
    You should not use MSDASQL or any DSN.

  • MS DTC not coming online on SQL Server 2008 R2 failover cluster

    Dear Experts,
    On a SQL Server 2008 R2 failover cluster, MS DTC cluster service is not coming online. It fails with below error message.
    "The DTC cluster resource's log file path was originally configured at: E:. Attempting to change that to: M:. This indicates a change in the path of the DTC cluster resource's dependent disk resource.  This is not supported. The error code
    returned: 0x8000FFFF".
    From the Component Services, we can see under the clustered DTCs, in the properties of the log file that it is configured for E drive. The 'Transaction list' and 'Transaction Statistics' are empty. When I try to change the log file path to
    point to M drive I get this warning message.
    "An MSDTC log file already exists in the selected directory. Resetting an existing MS DTC log file may cause your databases and other transactional resource managers to become inconistent. Please review the MSDTC Administrator's manual before
    proceeding. Do you wish to reset the existing MS DTC log"
    Could you please advise if this is safe to proceed with this warning as the  'Transaction list' and 'Transaction Statistics' are empty or would it cause any other issue.
    Thanks,
    MM

    Hi Ychinnari,
    Based on your description, you fail to install SQL Server 2008 R2 on Windows 7 SP1.
    According to the screenshot, we need to verify that if SQL Server 2008 R2 setup disappears when installing setup support files. If so, please post the error message from  SQLSetup.log file of the temp folder for analysis. Click on start->run and
    type %temp %  and press enter, you will navigate to the temp folder. For more details, you can review this
    blog.  Also, please help to collect the summary and detail logs, by default, the logs can be found in: C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Setup Bootstrap\Log.
    In addition, there are some proposals for you troubleshooting this issue.
    1. Ensure that your system meets the
    hardware and software requirements for installing SQL Server 2008 R2.
    2. Make sure that you install SQL Server 2008 R2 with a admin account, and please choose “Run as administrator” to  complete installation.
    3. Make sure that previous installations of SQL Server has been uninstalled completely from your computer. For more details, please review the similar blog:
    SQL Server 2008 R2 Setup starts and then disappears.
    4. Stop any Anti-Virus software when installing SQL Server 2008 R2.
    Thanks,

  • Silent install of SQL Server 2008r2 for ALL users?

    We ship an installer that does a silent install of SQL Server 2008r2 with all the 'right' parameters pre-configured. We use this:
    /QS /INSTANCENAME=MSSQLSERVER /ACTION=Install /FEATURES=SQL,BC,Conn,ADV_SSMS /SAPWD=MyPasswordGoesHere /SECURITYMODE=SQL /TCPENABLED=1 /ADDCURRENTUSERASSQLADMIN /SQLSVCSTARTUPTYPE=Automatic /SQLSVCACCOUNT="NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM" /AGTSVCACCOUNT="NT
    AUTHORITY\SYSTEM" /IACCEPTSQLSERVERLICENSETERMS
    However, the problem is that if a tech installs it for another user, that user does not have access, since ADDCURRENTUSERASSQLADMIN flag only adds the user who installed it -- rather than adding ALL users on the computer. (Or at least all admins.)
    I tried replacing ADDCURRENTUSERASSQLADMIN with this:
    /SQLSYSADMINACCOUNTS="BUILTIN\ADMINISTRATORS"
    but that also failed to work. How can we install for all users, or at least all administrators?
    NOTE: we do NOT know the name of the computer or the users. The installer has to work for any computer setup.
    Similar question has already been asked, but wasn't helpful:
    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/sqlserver/en-US/8354675f-be9b-4909-b776-942f03954807/how-to-do-a-silent-install-of-sql-2010-express-for-all-users-on-a-computer?forum=sqlexpress
    The documentation does not make it clear what you can pass as allowed SQLSYSADMINACCOUNTS parameters. I also am not sure if I would need to change the AGTSVCACCOUNT or SQLSVCACCOUNT?

    I tried one more thing:
    /SQLSYSADMINACCOUNTS="BUILTIN\Administrators"
    which does not halt installation with an error. 
    However, doing:
    osql -E
    create database test
    go
    in a command prompt from a different admin user on the same machine results in a permissions error... but works if done from a command prompt on the user account from which MSSQLServer was installed.
    So for some reason /SQLSYSADMINACCOUNTS="BUILTIN\Administrators" does not work as expected.
    Anyone have any idea why?
    I checked the output log from the install, and found it had generated and used a configurationFIle to do the install. I looked in that file, and these were the settings, even though I did NOT pass /ADDCURRENTUSERASSQLADMIN as a command line option:
    ; Windows account(s) to provision as SQL Server system administrators. 
    SQLSYSADMINACCOUNTS="BUILTIN\Administrators"
    ; The default is Windows Authentication. Use "SQL" for Mixed Mode Authentication. 
    SECURITYMODE="SQL"
    ; Provision current user as a Database Engine system administrator for SQL Server 2008 R2 Express. 
    ADDCURRENTUSERASSQLADMIN="True"
