Question about Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition

2 Answers

I've got a .bak file from a sql server 2005 standard database that runs on Server 2003. I want to restore it to sql server 2008 express running on windows xp, so I can mess around with it at home and practice a bit. Alas the plan has not gone the way I hoped. I get the following error upon trying to restore from the File: Cannot open backup device 'C:mybackup.bak'. Operating system error 5 (failed to retrieve text for this error. Reason:1815). RESTORE HEADERONLY is terminating abnormally.(Microsoft SQK Server, Error:3201)

    I changed the login from the SQL service from network service to a local user account.

    You can get to the services by clicking Start then Run and then typing services.msc in the Run window.

    Right click on the SQL service and the go to properties, then select the login tab and change the user to another user account such as the user you log on as.

    Restart the service by right clicking on it and the selecting Restart.

    Then it worked for me.

Tricks for Keeping SQL Server Safely


Some simple ways to protect your SQL Server database

1. Using the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) to assess the server's security
MBSA is one of a variety of Microsoft products, which can scan unsafe configuration tools. It can be run locally; you can also run through the network.

2. Isolate your server and regularly back up
Physical and logical isolation would form the basis of SQL Server security. Database should be installed within the enterprise network security area, but not directly connected to the Internet. Back up all data regularly and store copies in a safe location outside the site.

3. Assign a strong SA password for a SA account
SA account should always have a strong password, even if Windows is configured to require authentication of the server. This will ensure that the server has been reconfigured in the future as Mixed Mode authentication; it will not appear blank or weak SA.

4. Restrict the permissions SQL Server service
SQL Server 2000 and SQL Server Agent is running as a Windows service. Each service must be associated with a Windows account, and derive from this account security context. SA log in SQL Server allows the user (sometimes including other users) to access the operating system features.

Creating a new database using an MDF file


An MDF file isn't a backup file isn't the main data file (or master data file depending on who you ask) hence the file extension MDF. You can attach the MDF to the database by right clicking on the databases folder in Enterprise Manager (SQL 2000) or Management Studio (SQL 2005) then selecting all tasks and then Attach Database.
When you do this you will get an error about the log file missing. This shouldn't matter as SQL Server will simply create a new log file for you.
This will only work if the SQL Server was stopped when you copied the MDF file from the old SQL Server. If you copied the file while the SQL Server was running this file probably will not attach either and you will need to get a valid backup of the database.
