One issue that can cause this is that some systems, particularly VMs with the system volume on solid state storage, is that it boots up so fast and gets to the point of starting services before some of the networking has been fully initialized. This, then, results in a failure of the service account authentication, and the service start fails accordingly. ...

According to KB3000850, this affects domain-joined Windows 8.1 computers after installing security update 2992611 or update 3000850.

Using some information found in SQL Server PowerShell : How to Restore SQL Server Databases Using SMO and PowerShell, I was able to get past that error.

Resource monitor shows CPU from Processes and Services on two different graphs. (In your example, 32% + 37%, which means a total 69% CPU). As for SQL Activity Monitor, it shows CPU utilization for the machine on which SQL is installed. (In your example, 64%, which is not that far from Resource monitor.) I use a query to get the CPU utilization on my server....

There are a few ways to approach this. Download sp_WhoIsActive and run it when you notice a CPU spike, or log it to a table and query the table looking at the CPU column (maybe ORDER BY CPU DESC). Examine the plan cache using a free script -- I co-author one called sp_BlitzCache. By default, it will return the top 10 CPU consuming queries in your server's ...

None of the services in your screenshot have anything to do with VMWare. The one you highlighted is Wmiprvse.exe which is basically WMI WMI resides in a shared service host with several other services. To avoid stopping all the services when a provider fails, providers are loaded into a separate host process named "Wmiprvse.exe". The other ones are ...

So you've got 5 'stacked' instances on a single Windows server. You haven't said exactly how many sockets/CPUs are available and how much memory though. I like setting affinity for each instance in such cases, even if I decide to have CPUs overlapping in the struggle to balance the overall CPU load (depends on each instance's load). Any instance with more ...

The WmiPrvSE.exe belongs to the service Windows Management Instrumentation and is located in the %WINDIR%\SysWOW64\wbem directory.

Windows firewall allows to filter by IP address out of the box, it's just that you aren't offered the choice in the New Rule wizard. You have to create a rule first and then edit its properties:

I use Windows Firewall and Powershell for this. Unless of course you want to get something like ScaleArc to act as a reverse proxy. Your options are really going to be rather limited to something that utilizes one of those technologies. Firewall/IPSec or a reverse proxy. This is the outline of the script I use to verify ports the rule exists in this ...

The error message is misleading you, it's not talking about disk storage on the machine where you are restoring.

When you check that error message you will notice that it's not an error during the restore operation but rather during the file copy ...

As per Microsoft, having same service account is the prerequisite : All server instances that host an availability replica for the availability group must use the same SQL Server service account.

It sounds like the Windows account that you're using on your local machine has enough permission to launch SSMS, but that same Windows account does not have permission on the server. Grant the appropriate permission to the Windows account on the server to be able to launch SSMS, and then it should work fine. Unless...you're referring to a SQL Server "cannot ...

I had removed the node weight of the 3rd node. Am I missing something here? You're receiving the informational message because you've removed the possible vote (node weight of 0) of the replica.

All of this assumes you're running 64 bit Windows and 64 bit SQL Server... SQL Server is greedy when it comes to memory usage, and that is by design. It keeps as much data as it can in RAM because it is faster than having to access disk to fulfill a query or other request. As a result, you may want to set the minimum memory allocation for a SQL Server ...

This is how the NETWORK SERVICE account from localMachineName presents itself to SQL Server (and file shares, and web sites, etc). You need to profile "Login Failed" events (or XE Capture or whatever) to identify the program and/or Windows PID

So I am not sure why is this happening, is it related to Always On? It is and also isn't related to Always On. Always On Availability Groups requires that the database be in the full recovery model - which is why you need log management in the first place. So long as your secondary replicas are staying very close to the primary (i.e. no lagging secondary ...

I would expect that forcing failover (either by moving the services manually or rebooting the owner node) more than twice would cause the resources to stay 'Offline', but this isn't the case. Correct, that isn't the case. Moving the services manually isn't a failure - you've told it to go ahead and change the owner, this isn't a failure. Rebooting also isn'...

The cause of this problem was almost certainly at the VM level. The Ops team had configured the server to not only have 20 CPUs but also 20 sockets. I've read online that virtual servers do not differentiate between sockets or cores or CPUs but the problem has gone away since I requested the configuration change. Additionally, VMware tools did not report ...

The same Procs takes 2 to 5 times more to run sometimes (it seems to vary). You should recompile the stored proc using sp_recompile 'procedureName'. This should be one of the post migration step. Another thing to be aware is if you are going to use more max memory (since you have more RAM on new server), you should look into testing and enabling TF2335 ...
