It's possible that this is a bug in SQL: When you run a Full-Text query that uses compound words in Microsoft SQL Server 2008 or in Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2, you receive the following error message in the Error log file: Date Time spidID Error: 701, Severity: 17, State: 123. Date Time spidID There is insufficient system memory in ...

Yes. Both products are part of Microsoft's standard SQL platform. Simply backup your database on the SQL Express platform and restore the backup on the SQL Standard platform. It really is that simple. About the only possible issue I can think of that will make it more than a few mouse-clicks or a couple lines of T-SQL is that you will need to specify new ...

Resolution Ok I've managed to resolve this problem by configuring virtual network and configuring SQL Server. Virtual network configuration My Host-only configuration was set to automatic but using VMWare this network doesn't have any gateway applied to it, so I added a default Gateway to be the same as DNS (in my case this was 192.168.100.254). This ...

You can just do the following: SELECT * FROM sys.fulltext_catalogs This will return the catalog names and should give you what you need.

You don't specify what version of SQL Server Express you're running but as far as I know this has always been and still is possible. The following article details how to do it with SQL Server Express 2012. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms188670.aspx

The GUI is giving you the most recent backup for the database you had highlighted, which I presume is Foo. That dialog is giving you the history of the highlighted database's backups as pulled from MSDB. If you choose "From Device," you can browse to a different backup and use it instead. As to the contents of Foo and their not being an exact copy of ...

User Instance=true It's because it's running as a user instance. You might be able to connect to it using the details here Alternatively, if you remove the User Instance=true from the connection string, if you're using EF code first then this should cause a new DB to be created on the SQL instance proper. Bear in mind that the tables will be empty and you'...

Aside from the normal cautions and warnings about a side-by-side SQL installation, there are no "known issues" as a result of doing a side-by-side installation between SQL Express 9 and SQL Server 2008 R2. This guy's done it without issue, as have I, though with different versions. Pretty sure it was SQL Express 2005 and SQL 2008 (100)/R1 in my case. EDIT:...

Use SSMS to connect to your server, use Windows Authentication Right-click server - Properties - Security tab Select "SQL Server and Windows authentication mode" click OK button Right-click server - Select Restart Go to node ...

Disabling AVG virus protection before starting the install setup allowed me to proceed with the install past this point

I had problem with RDS role (my collegue with IIS), the same error 0x800f0831. On Windows 2012 R2. The same error was when tried to install newest Cumulative update. Problem was caused by missing security update (KB4103725). You can find missing kb number in C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.Log when searching for '0x800f0831' but only when trying to install security ...

I got an answer back from the hosting company that hosts our VPS and, lo' and behold, they block port 1433. They gave me a different port to use and all is well! Thanks to everyone who commented. Not sure why dynamic ports did not work when I tried it, but it may be that SQL Browser could not get through the firewall either on UDP port 1434 to do its job ...

SQL Express by default doesn't listen to TCP. You need to turn on "TCP/IP" in SQL Server Configuration Manager → Network Configuration → Protocols. Additionally, if the Express instance is not the default one you'll need to have the SQL Browser service running. Configure firewall accordingly.

Yes this should suffice for your new application, as you will not be needing more then Express edition limits in Storage/RAM/CPU, according to data you put in the question. Your application should not be doing to much load. You haven't mentioned in your question, why are you worried about using SQL Express, are you deciding between different types of ...

Its per database...The size limits are different for various years though. Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express edition has a database size limit to 4GB Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Express edition has a database size limit to 4GB Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Express edition has a database size limit to 10GB Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Express edition has a ...

Looks like something was wrong with files that were exploded from the SQLEXPRADV_x64_ENU.exe. After trying few times now it seams to work.

As Jason said, if you want the available space back, you'll need to shrink the database. However, you say that SQL reports that there's only 100 MB of unused space. Presumably you're expecting this figure to be higher? If so, how much space would you expect to be able to claim back? Reorganizing (rather than rebuilding) the indexes would take less working ...

You will need to shrink the database if you want to reclaim the free space.
