Fixing 84b40000 error on SQL Server 2008 updates (like KB2977321 and KB2285068) via: Microsoft Community

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/07/14

When installing SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 3 related updates, some don’t like compressed directories (even if the database files themselves are uncompressed).

I found this holds at least for KB2977321 and KB2285068.

For x86 systems, ensure these directories are not compressed:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server Compact Edition

For x64 systems, ensure these directories are not compressed:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server
C:\Program Files x86\Microsoft SQL Server
C:\Program Files x86\Microsoft SQL Server Compact Edition

SQL Server: when your database is in “Recovery Pending” mode

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/03/31

With SQL Server, when your database is in “Recovery Pending” mode don’t just start blindingly search google, but sit down as you might be causing more damage doing so.

After sitting down, read these two posts by Paul Randal | SQLskills.com from his SQL Server Corruption series:

  1. Search Engine Q&A #4: Using EMERGENCY mode to access a RECOVERY PENDING or SUSPECT database.
  2. SQL Server EMERGENCY mode repair.

Then think about it before acting.

Though the simplest cause for “Recovery Pending” might be that a disk spin-up was slow, or a disk became full (and everything might just be dandy after the disk is available and there is enough room on it), make sure you read the above posts first before relying on the simple causes.

SQL Server Management Studio does have a Registered Servers window (via: Server Fault)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/03/26

One of the things I thought were missing from SSMS when coming from an ISQLW background was the “registered servers” window.

Well: it is still there, and this is how to set it up on an efficient way (:
