I have 2 odd user procs installed in the master database in 2 of my servers:

dbo.smDEX_Build_Locks

and dbo.smDEX_Max_Char

Anyone know what they are? My guess is they are left over from some 3rd party software that was installed and propable removed but I can't be sure. There is no documanentaion within the procs. They appear to create a table in tempdb and sotre some information about blocks that occur.

How about just taking the easy route of renaming them and wait to see if something breaks. Like you say they are most probably from some third-party software, or even some developer who was trying something, but if you do not have any idea why they are there you should try and find out.

Yes, this thread is super-duper old, but I'm guessing these are Great Plains related. I ran into these on a server recently as well.

Renaming and waiting to see who yells is a good idea. :-)
