Hello,
I have an existing maintenance plan that reindexes and updates the stats of some tables. I have selected some of the user databases as part of the job (skipping some read only ones). We recently added a database I wanted to include in the plan so in SSMS 2008 I clicked modify on the existing maintenance plan, added the database to the rebuild and update jobs and then when I save it gives a 'Catastrophic error'. I have tried saving a couple of times and closing and reopening SMSS but it does the same thing. Has anyone out there encountered this before?

Try using SSMS 2005?

Good suggestion, I had my coworker do that shortly after getting the error message and had a different error, will have to get him to do it again as it was different than the catastrophic error.

Gary,

I had the same 'Catastrophic Failure' that you described when editing a maintenance plan using the SQL tools on the actual server. However, I was able to edit and save the changes successfully when using the SQL tools from PC to remotely attach to the server. Having 'done the business' I did not attempt to investigate the root cause of the problem but it looks like a problem with the local install of SSMS.

I am getting the same error when trying to setup a maintenance plan in SSMS 2008. Does anyone know what this error represents or how to get around it?

Thanks

did you check this simple little issue with a couple of the required DLLs not getting registered?

My vote is to stop using maintenance plans altogether!! They are horrible. Go to ola.hallengren.com and get the FREE goodness there. Complete MX suite, including creating agent jobs for you. FULLY DOCUMENTED and AMAZINGLY FLEXIBLE!!
