• SQL Server 2008 v10.0.5538.0
  • sp_Blitz v5.5

I'm trying to run sp_Blitz for the first time and getting this error message:

sp_Blitz @CheckUserDatabaseObjects = 0

Warning: Null value is eliminated by an aggregate or other SET operation. Msg 567, Level 16, State 5, Procedure sp_Blitz, Line 3863 [Batch Start Line 0] File '' either does not exist or is not a recognizable trace file. Or there was an error opening the file.

What may be causing the error?

There's a weird bug that only pops up on some instances of SQL Server when the Trace File path has problems. I can't diagnose those, but we took some steps to avoid that bug which are in the latest version of sp_Blitz.

Please head over to firstresponderkit.org to grab the newest version, and file an issue at the GitHub repo if you run into anything else.
