While waiting for it to come online, have you checked the disk system? Have you checked general server health? Have you checked permissions (make sure they haven't changed)?

Your recovery process could take a very long time based on the info provided. While that is happening, you might as well do everything possible to ensure there is nothing else causing delays or problems.

HI,

As the database is very big and no place on drive. we stopped taking backup's.
Can you please provide me the solution..

Thanks
Praneeth


The best backups are not stored on the same drive, IMHO. And with the cost of space these days........

HI,

Still in Recovery. I am Panic.
My company is running this database from past 8 years and no indexing, no Primary/clustered index, No jobs etc.
So I want to streamline all this database. I studied on net to improve performance we can do table partition for fast retrieval of data.
Can you please let me know the link or site
Any additional tips are highly appreciated!!!

Thanks
Praneeth

Be patient.
The progress gets logged to the error log, check there for estimated time remaining, but note it's often on the low side

Sounds like you need to get someone in to evaluate and make recommendations. If it's that much of a mess, it's going to be a huge job just figuring out where to start.

Um, no.

Partitioning is not really a performance tuning mechanism. It's primarily a data management mechanism that can have performance improvements. I agree with Gail, get a professional in to do an assessment. Barring that, get a copy of my book. At least you'll have a functional starting point for figuring this stuff out.

Do they know that, or do they think you're an experienced DBA?

If the former, tell them you don't know where to start or what to look for and that they should get an experienced consultant in to do an analysis and recommendations. If the latter, well....

Don't even think about partitioning. If you do not have backup, partitioning is way over your head (not trying to know you, but if you have no backups, indexes, etc., partitioning is the least of your problems).

Once the dust settles, get a valid backup strategy in place. DBAs get fired for not having valid backups. If your company says they can not afford the space\resources to backup the data, then fight them. Get it in writing all the way up to the CIO level. Make sure that they know, without ANY doubt, that one bad disk sector can take out the entire database. And disks fail, or sometimes hiccup to the point where a database can be corrupted.

I would recommend, among other free sites like here, that you pay for good training ones like pluralsight and O'Reiley books on-line. I saw, for example, they have over 55 training sessions on different aspects (and versions) of SQL Server. And no, I don't own stock in any of them
