Hi Rich, Thanks for the reply.
I have checked the query on my sQL server 2005 enterprise box having SP4 and it appears to be displaying just right. No problems in incrementing the percent_complete counter. 🙂
I have tried different scenarios such as:
Using the master database tried DBCC CHECKDB on its own,
Using the master database tried DBCC CHECKDB ('anotherDatabasename') ,
Using another database tried DBCC CHECKDB on its own,
Using another database tried DBCC CHECKDB ('databasename') et al
And in all cases I have got the percent_complete values populated. I will try to see if there is any other way for it not to display. If it appears to do so than I guess we can highlight these findings to Microsoft tech net or Microsoft connect or the Microsoft SQL Server help desks and log it ?
I do remember reading an article that in SQL server 2005 progress reporting to DBCC CHECKDB was added and we can check the percent_complete column.
Hope this helps?
