Error importing BLG on Windows 7 SQL2008


Getting the following error at the stage of importing the BLG. It seems to process it fine but then comes up with the database connection failure:

Can you check the State number for the login failed message in the SQL Errorlog? At this point, it looks like the Nexus database was unaccessibled by the application due to which the error was reported. Profiler trace captured during the import might help narrowing down the issue.

Hi, this is the logon error:

Date 2011-03-14 17:14:52
Log SQL Server (Current - 2011-03-10 10:20:00)

Source Logon

Error: 18456, Severity: 14, State: 38.

State 38 corresponds to "Failed to open the explicitly specified database". Does your login and the SQL service account have permissions on the path where the SQL Nexus database files are stored?

bimaldave wrote Mar 24, 2011 at 7:03 PM

Yes, I checked and my account has dbo rights so it doesn't seem like its permissions related. Anything else you can think of?

amitban wrote Mar 29, 2011 at 6:10 PM

Can you drop the sqlnexus database and have Nexus recreate the same and check if the same issue occurs?

amitban wrote Mar 29, 2011 at 6:14 PM

Can you also check by collect a profiler trace with Audit Events to see which Audit is failing or throwing an error?

bimaldave wrote Mar 29, 2011 at 10:05 PM

Tried dropping the db - same error. Also enabled SQL logins, logged in as SA account but still get the same error. Very strange. I am running this on sql express but dont have profiler installed at the moment. Will install it and upload the log shortly.

Interestingly I just checked the event log and found this:

A fatal error occurred while reading the input stream from the network. The session will be terminated (input error: 109, output error: 0).

It is reported by event id 4014 from SQL Server. Does that help at all?

amitban wrote Mar 29, 2011 at 11:16 PM

Yes that helps. That is a TDS stream error. What is the state number reported? Can you patch the SQL Server engine with the latest cumulative update and then check if the issue occurs? This is not an issue with SQL Nexus but a protocol related error which might need us to collect TDS related information. This would be difficult to do and out-of-scope for this dicussion forum.

There is an issue of importing perfmon if runs under UAC. You can right click on sqlnexus.exe and "run as administrator" to make it work. there will be an update for Sql Nexus soon that will include this fix

this is an issue when running SQL Nexus under UAC to import perfmon. Launch it as administrator (right click on sqlnexus.exe and choose "run as administrator"). Next release will include this fix that doesn't require "run as administrator".

Hi, I had the same login error, and I found SQLNexus create DBs with "AutoClose Option = True".
Changing "AutoClose Option = False" I solved my login problem.

I hope this can help.

amitban wrote Dec 21, 2011 at 7:07 PM

I think the SQLNexus database is being created with AutoClose option set to ON because your model database has that property set. We don't explicitly set AutoClose to ON when creating a new Nexus database.

Norberto2021 wrote Dec 23, 2011 at 2:13 PM

Amitban I understand and know this is strange, but I checked the model DB and the AutoClose option is set to OFF.
When I create manualy a DB, it creates with the AutoClose option set to OFF.
However when SQLNexus creates a DB, it creates with AutoClose option set to ON.
