dbo.spt_values doesn't exist, but even if it did can you create a view with the name matching the table it views? The only things not working are right clicking a table and selecting properties. right clicking anything else like a table seems to work. Also our Quest/Dell Spotlight tool won't monitor this instance for the same reason. I do have backups but on a cluster, restoring master would be a slightly big deal for me, not ever having restored master anywhere. I've removed all of the views/tables the accidental tool install put in master and since this is a production system would have to be done on Sunday probably. The u_tables script has this "-- Create a synonym spt_values in master pointing to spt_master in Resource DB, for backward compatibility" So how is this create view statement going to find spt_master in the resource DB?
create view spt_values as
select name collate database_default as name,
type collate database_default as type,
low, high, status
Invalid object name 'dbo.spt_values'
