To all SQL Server Club members and loyal readers, a Happy and Prosperous 2010!

Starting this week I intend to write about some of most of the most commonly faced issues and resolutions found when using SQL Server, and will cover topics from installations to administrative tasks.

This week, we take a look at two issues concerning SQL Server Reporting services and SQL Server Business Intelligence Studio.

SQL Server 2005 Installation:

Problem 1: ASP.NET Version Registration Requirement warning

  1. You are trying to install SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services on a 64bit machine and during the pre-requisite check, you see the following warnings:

    SQL Server 2005 Setup - System Configuration Check

    Click on the Messages link and it brings up the following window:

    ASP.NET Version Registration Requirement

    Resolution: you need to enable 32bit app support within IIS.

    To do this, perform the following steps:

    • For Windows Vista, launch IIS Manager by going to Start > Run and then typing inetmgr.exe (Instructions for other versions of Windows).
    • Click on Application Pools. Click on Set Application Pool Defaults.
    • Under the General section, set Enable 32-bit Applications property to TRUE.

      IIS Application Pool Defaults

    • Finally, restart IIS.

    Now re-run the SQL Server setup and you won't see any warnings:

    SQL Server System Configuration
Problem 2: Visual Studio 2008 SP1 is already installed, you run the setup and BIDS installation fails

Resolution Perform the setup with the following command:

start /wait setup.exe /qb REINSTALL=SQL_WarehouseDevWorkbench REINSTALLMODE=OMUS

This command should repair BIDS.

SQL Defrag Studio 2009
Fragmented indexes can cause your SQL Server to gradually slow down until it grinds
to a complete stop. Performance may be slow but you'll need to solve it fast.

SQL Defrag Studio finds fragmented indexes and automatically defrags them for you.
