I went through the task of creating the RAAS database and making a user, but when I tried to run the RAAS client it said "There is a problem with the RAAS database. Please notify your administrator." I noticed when I installed the script that there was an error when trying to add the RAASAdmin to the Users table because of improper case. However, changing the database collation to a case-insensitive one seems to do the trick.

Is this supposed to be freeware?? Have only had 1 spam-mail from vendor since download and responding to trial license e-mail. So not impressed with either the vendor or SQLServer Central! Is there supposed to be a full version license key or did I just not understand the original post and offer?

I've followed the instructions and replied to the trial liscence email with the correct phrase in the subject line, but so far have not received a full liscence key......

Rog Pike... where the hell are you now?

--Jeff Moden

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
Although they tell us that they want it real bad, our primary goal is to ensure that we dont actually give it to them that way.
Although change is inevitable, change for the better is not.
Just because you can do something in PowerShell, doesnt mean you should. Wink

I agree, I received a standard follow-up email but not a full key.

I did get a second piece of free "diff" software during the process which I am going to try to see if the companies software is worth anything.

Can't say as I am terribly impressed, looks like they might have forgotten to surround SQL column names with []'s. For theirs and others information, here is the error I got when trying to compare two databases in SQL2000; I had all the features checked to compare and it looks like it died on constraints:

************** Exception Text **************
System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x80045510): [SQL-DMO]The name '0 master ( Standard Countries )' was not found in the Tables collection. If the name is a qualified name, use [] to separate various parts of the name, and try again.

I agree - all of the apps i downloaded seemed to be pretty shoddy. especially periscope which i still havent managed to get to work correctly.

RAAS seems to be fairly solid, but lacks functionality -
how would i search for the history of an object if my script contains more than one object change?

if my script can contain only one object change, why can't i group scripts together in one package?,

why can't i include rollback scripts?

if a script is approved and then unaproved how can users basing their source code on approved changes be notified?

if you have to have approve priveleges to view releases (in the approve screen) then developers can't check code change history without approving code themselves...

etc etc
