Use caution when upgrading SQL 2008 CTP SSIS packages to RC0

Published On: 2008-06-12By:

A ran across a bit of a problem when upgrading my SQL 2008  CTP 5 (November 2007) SSIS Packages to SQL 2008 RC0.  Apparently Microsoft has changed the way that they handle the script tasks within the SSIS packages.  Because of this when I edit all of the script tasks within my SSIS package the scripts were all blank.

 The official fix from Microsoft is to install the older CTP version that you edited the scripts in on another machine and open the un-updated version of the SSIS package on that machine, and copy the code for the scripts into the RC0 version of the SSIS package.

The only object which I’ve had to do this on was a .NET Script Task.  I had this problem when going from CTP 5 to CTP 6 as well as from CTP 5 to RC0.  This will not effect migrating from SQL 2005 to SQL 2008 as SQL 2005 and SQL 2008 CTP 5 do not use the same scripting engine in the back end.

Article: SQL Server memory configurations for procedure cache and buffer cache

Published On: By:

I’ve just published another tip over on SearchSQLServer.com.  This one is titled SQL Server memory configurations for procedure cache and buffer cache.

To determine how much memory your SQL Server database uses for buffer cache and procedure cache, factor in the SQL version you’re using, whether it’s x86, x64 or Itanium and the amount of memory allocated to the SQL Server instance. I talk about how the system configures memory and how it allocates the amount of buffer and procedure cache that’s available.Denny

SQL 2005 Internal Query Error 8623 still unfixed

Published On: 2008-06-09By:

While working on a new part of our production system  we begun getting the following error message back from the SQL Server.

Server: Msg 8623, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Internal Query Processor Error: The query processor could not produce a query plan. Contact your primary support provider for more information.

Now I’ve seen this error before, but it was supposed to have been fixed in Cumulative Update 3 for SQL Server 2005 SP 2 but apparently it hasn’t been.  I’m currently running build 3239 which is Cumulative Update 7.  (I’m running the x64 edition.)

The only difference between my query and what’s documented in the KB article is that I was doing a basic insert statement.

 INSERT INTO Table3
 (Table1Id, Table2Id)
 VALUES
 (@Table1Id, @Table2Id)

There are obviously no complex queries being run here.  However I did have relational integrity enabled through foreign keys.  I ended up having to remove the foreign key constraints from this table for the insert statement to work correctly.

Hopefully someone finds this info useful.

You can follow along with the Microsoft development teams progress on Microsoft Connect.  It’s feedback number 332815.
