I right click on a Database, select properties Error, cannot show requested dialog.

The error reads:

cannot show requested dialog (SqlMgmt)

Property Size is not available for Database '[DataWarehouse]'. This property may not exist for this object, or may not be retrievable due to insufficient access rights. (Microsoft.SQLServer.Smo)

I'm running Database Consistency Checker.

Has anyone experienced this problem?

I've seen this in SQL 2005 while running index rebuilds. It would not allow me to see DB properties via GUI, I could query the properties though.

I'm inclined to think it has something to do with too many locks on the database. Not sure though

Check that the database owner is set to a valid account. SA is often used.

Maybe related also to your access rights on the server.

Cheers! :-)

In my experience this is most time the cause of the error. The login of the current database owner is removed/altered and not valid anymore.

I've seen this happen with a funky installation of Management Studio. Try it from another computer.
