When I gave this presentation to the local user group, this question came up.  The only idea someone had was for the performance files.  Use the performance collector in each domain. Then, collect the files into the performance data folder where the repository database is installed.  I haven't tried this, so I don't know if it will work.  I can email the person who wanted to do this and see if he had any luck.  You can also send an email to SQLH2@Microsoft.com with questions.

Kathi,

Very good article....

I saw on the microsoft site and it says "This version(2.027) of SQLH2 supports SQL Server 2005 RTM collection "

Is there a different version of SQLH2 for SQL 2000 ?

Thanks,

Ranga

Thanks!

I just found out from Microsoft that this version does support SQL Server 2000.  They said that a previous version worked with SQL 2005 beta and this version was updated for the released version.  So, it is the correct download.

What does -3 state means on a PerfColector?
I'm using en-US windows locale spanish sql server & database with english in user instance settings.

That's the SQLH2 log:

This may be too late for you now, but I had this problem as well.

It was due to the fact that the Sybase client was on the server where sqlh2.exe ran & the sybase client was in the PATH enviornment variable before the MS SQLServer.

You can check this by running bcp /v from the command line. If its sybase, try moving the path to the client to the end of the PATH variable.

Cheers

Dan

I've hit a roadblock that I'm hoping someone hgas some ideas on.

I'm versed in SQL Server's core DB product/service but am very new amd green with regards to Reporting Services. I installed this tool and followed the instructions to the letter, differening only where appopriate such as serviname, ect. When I get to the step where I add a Data Source I get the below err msg when clicking OKK to create the new data source:

The report server cannot decrypt the symmetric key used to access sensitive or encrypted data in a report server database. You must either restore a backup key or delete all encrypted content. Check the documentation for more information. (rsReportServerDisabled) (rsRPCError) Get Online Help The report server cannot decrypt the symmetric key used to access sensitive or encrypted data in a report server database. You must either restore a backup key or delete all encrypted content. Check the documentation for more information. (rsReportServerDisabled)

Bad Data. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80090005)


I looked this up and found a posting about Backup/Restore/Change & Delete of an Encryption key. I am however uncertain about any of these, about performing any action as nothing about this was listed in the Comprehensive Install Guide which I used for the install/Setup of the Health tool.

There are a few other SSRS based reports on this same server/instance which are in live use and so I must be careful what I do about my own error so as to not break anyone else's existing reports. Is there any way to reset this to it's state prior to installing the SQLH2 tool?

It looks like the encryption on this is optional. Is there any way to remove it entirely without loosing any existing reports? If it is discovered later that a consultant (or whomever added these other reports in use) has them set up wioth encryption can that encryption be added back? I'm trying to find a way to get this all working even if it means stripping out encryption and then putting it bacl.

What is PRIORITY is to not loose/break/destroy the ther reports on the same insktance of SSRS.

Thanks in adavance!
HELP??


Kindest Regards,

Just say No to Facebook!

Hi,

I'm new to this forum.
Does the SQLH2 solution also record SQL Agent Job stats.
I need a solution that monitors a large ETL BI warehouse jobs.


Thanks

Rob

I am no longer using this product, so I don't know your answer. Microsoft was pretty good about answering questions about it, so you might take a look at the documentation for a contact email.
