BizTalk Server error: BizTalk Server cannot access SQL Server

BizTalk Server error: BizTalk Server cannot access SQL Server

A client called me this week to help with their BizTalk Server production environment. BizTalk was not running, and they needed to know the reason why. Quickly, while we investigated the issue, we saw on the BizTalk Server administration console the following error:

BizTalk Server cannot access SQL Server. This could be due to one of the following reasons:

  1. Access permissions have been denied to the current user. Either log on as a user that has been granted permissions to SQL and try again, or grant the current user permission to access SQL Server.
  2. The SQL Server does not exist, or an invalid database name has been specified. Check the name entered for the SQL Server and database to make sure they are correct as provided during SQL Server installation.
  3. The SQL Server exists, but is not currently running. Use the Windows Service Control Manager or SQL Enterprise Manager to start SQL Server, and try again.
  4. A SQL database file with the same name as the specified database already exists in the Microsoft SQL Server data folder.

Internal error from OLEDB provider: “A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 – Could not open a connection to SQL Server)” (WinMgmt)

Cause

In this case, the error message clearly specifies perfect paths to troubleshoot and fix the issue. We knew that the first two and the last one didn’t fit our issue because SQL Server exists, and now one has changed access permission.

So, we immediately focus on point number three: The SQL Server exists, but is not currently running. We had the SQL Server Management Console open, and it appeared to be running, but when we checked the services, we realized that the SQL Server (BIZTALK) was not running but Starting.

But any attempt on our part to quickly try to get the service running was futile. Even restarting the machine was unsuccessful.

This SQL Server behavior surprised me – to be clear, at this point, we knew that this was not a BizTalk Server issue but a SQL Server issue that was affecting BizTalk Server – and that forced me to investigate one of the obvious reasons that everyone says they monitor, but… the free space on the hard drive! And guess what? We had 0 free space on C drive.

And that was the main reason for this issue in our case.

Solution

So, to solve this issue, we had to:

  • First, of course, the quick win approach was to free some space on the hard drive – we were able to clean 5GB.
  • Then, start the SQL Server (BIZTALK) service and dependencies again. After freeing up disk space, we didn’t find any issues in getting this started.
  • And, of course, we asked the IT team to increase the C drive with extra disc space.
  • Finally, we implemented a monitoring script to notify us about disk space issues: Monitoring disk spaces in your BizTalk environment with PowerShell

Note to myself: How to easily count the number of Jobs in SQL Server Agent Jobs?

Note to myself: How to easily count the number of Jobs in SQL Server Agent Jobs?

This is just another post for the sake of my mental sanity because I’m always tired of looking up for this over and over again. While working on BizTalk Server projects and in many other scenarios, like optimizing the BizTalk Server environment, I want to check how many SQL Server Jobs I have in my SQL Server Instance in order to optimize and properly configure the maximum job history log. This way, I know that none of the jobs is going to be without execution history on the logs, and I can easily monitor and troubleshoot them.

Normally, I have a few SQL Server Jobs, and it is easy to count them manually, nevertheless annoying! But sometimes I get SQL Server Instances hosting applications databases used by BizTalk Server with more than 60 jobs… and counting them manually is not an annoying task but instead an insane task!

So the million dollar question is, How to easily count the number of Jobs in SQL Server Agent Jobs?

To easily count the number of SQL Server Agent Jobs in your SQL Server instance, you can use a simple SQL query. Here’s how you can do it:

SELECT COUNT(*) AS NumberOfJobs
FROM msdb.dbo.sysjobs;

This query counts the number of rows in the msdb.dbo.sysjobs table, which contains information about SQL Server Agent Jobs. The result will be the total number of jobs.

Keep in mind that you need the necessary permissions to query the msdb database, which is where SQL Server Agent Jobs are stored. Typically, users with administrative roles or appropriate permissions can access this information.

Note to myself: How to reset the Azure SQL Server admin account password

Note to myself: How to reset the Azure SQL Server admin account password

Welcome back to yet another post, driven by my desire to maintain my mental well-being, as I’ve become exhausted from the constant need to look this up. I often conduct demonstrations and proof-of-concepts for my clients and during my sessions, resulting in the creation of multiple Azure services. However, I don’t always use them extensively, and sometimes it can take months before I revisit them. One such example is Azure SQL databases. The predominant dilemma I face in this specific database context is my consistent forgetfulness when it comes to passwords! While I recognize the necessity of storing them safely, such as in Keypass, these resources are usually generated during live demonstrations, and safeguarding this information isn’t always our immediate concern.

So, the main question is: How to reset the Azure SQL Server admin account password?

Actually, this is a very simple task to accomplish. For that, you need to:

  • Go to the Azure portal. From there search for SQL databases, and select the database from the list.
  • On the Overview page, under Essentials panel, click on the Server name link.
  • On the SQL Server Overview page, on the top menu click Reset Password.
  • On the Reset admin password panel, enter a new password and then click Save.
    • Your password must be at least 8 characters in length.
    • Your password must contain characters from three of the following categories – English uppercase letters, English lowercase letters, numbers (0-9), and non-alphanumeric characters (!, $, #, %, etc.).

Alternatively, if you know i the SQL Server name you can accomplish the same by:

  • Go to the Azure portal. From there search for SQL Servers, and select the SQL Server name from the list.
  • On the SQL Server Overview page, on the top menu click Reset Password.
  • On the Reset admin password panel, enter a new password and then click Save.

The primary task ahead is to rectify all the services that rely on a connection string to access any database residing on this SQL Server.

SQL Script to monitor BizTalk Server SQL Jobs

SQL Script to monitor BizTalk Server SQL Jobs

For those who’ve been following my work, you might recall that I shared a set of PowerShell scripts a while back for monitoring BizTalk Server. One of these scripts was designed to oversee BizTalk Server SQL Jobs, and you can find additional details about it here: BizTalk DevOps: Monitor your BizTalk environment using PowerShell – SQL Agent Jobs Monitoring (Part 2) and here: Monitor your BizTalk environment using PowerShell – SQL Agent Jobs Monitoring.

Within those blog posts, I also provided at least one SQL script for monitoring the status of jobs – whether they were disabled or running as anticipated, such as every minute, every fifty minutes, and so forth. However, it has come to my attention this week that even though they were enabled and running as planned, some of them were not finishing with success, and I was not notified. For this reason, I decided to create a second SQL script to enhance the functionality of the earlier one. This new script is designed to search for any failures that have occurred in the last hour. It will then present me with the most recent failure details, including the error message, for each of the Jobs in an error state.

THIS SQL SCRIPT IS PROVIDED “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND.

A fish out of water: How to check what SSIS packages are running and stop them?

A fish out of water: How to check what SSIS packages are running and stop them?

You may already know that I usually use the series A fish out of water when I want to write something that goes a little bit off-topic on my main blog topic: Enterprise Integration. This time, and despite this, can also be considered an Enterprise Integration – ETL process – I don’t consider myself a SQL Server “expert”. I often delegate these tasks to my data team. However, this week one of my clients call me regarding an issue we were facing with our integration platform, which is mainly composed of SQL Server, BizTalk Server, and Azure.

While diagnosing the problem – almost feeling like Dr. House – I realize we were not getting any new data because the ETL jobs failed with the error: There is already an active instance of this package.

That happened because we were controlling the execution of the package and not allowing multiple executions of the same package to coincide by doing the following validation.

IF (SELECT COUNT(*) AS ExecutionCount
 FROM SSISDB.catalog.executions
	WHERE status = 2 
	AND folder_name = ''
	AND package_name = '.dtsx') > 0 
BEGIN
	THROW 50000, 'There is already an active instance of this package.', 1;
END

The problem was that I didn’t knew at that time how to monitor which SSIS packages were currently running and how to stop them. Because for some reason, I’m guessing network issues, those packages were kind of zombies. And I didn’t have my team available at that time. Because that was a production environment, I had to learn, which is also good! And this may be a helpful tip for other situations where we need to check what are the SSIS Packages running from the Catalog and want to subsequently stop them.

To accomplish that, we need to:

  • On current versions of Windows, on the Start page, type SSMS and then select Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio.
    • When using older versions of Windows, on the Start menu, point to All Programs, point to Microsoft SQL Server, and then select SQL Server Management Studio.
  • On the Object Explorer panel, expand Integration Services Catalogs, right-click on SSISDB, and select the Active Operations option from the options menu.
  • A new Active Operations window will open, presenting all the running packages
  • From this window, you can select the package you want and click the Stop button to force stopping that SSIS package execution.

It’s also possible to do the same process via T-SQL by running these to queries:

  • Query to retrieve all currently running packages in the SSIS.Catalog
SELECT * FROM SSISDB.catalog.executions WHERE end_time IS NULL
  • Query to stop the execution of a specific SSIS package
EXEC SSISDB.catalog.stop_operation @operation_id =

Microsoft Integration and Azure Stencils Pack for Visio: New version available (v8.0.0)

The last time I released a new version of my stencil, it was on January 26 of 2022.

BizTalk Backup BizTalk Server Job Error: Could not find server ‘server name’ in sys.servers

BizTalk Backup BizTalk Server Job Error: Could not find server ‘server name’ in sys.servers

Yesterday while troubleshooting a BizTalk Server developer environment at a client, I encountered an unusual error while trying to configure the BizTalk Server Backup job:

Could not find server ‘server name’ in sys.servers. 

Based on the error description, and by the fact that I was trying to run a SQL Server job, I knew that the error should be on the SQL Server side, some incorrect configurations,

Cause

Why this problem start to happen is unclear to me, and at the time I didn’t have all the information available to understand that. However, after investigating a little this error type I realize that we can execute a SQL query to check out what is your linked server:

select * from sys.servers

Or

Select @@SERVERNAME

The problem was that once I run these scripts, I realize the server name was not the expected one, it was incorrect! For example:

  • I was expecting BTS2020LAB01.
  • But instead, I was seeing VMIMAGE01.

And that was causing the failure on the Backup job and other BizTalk server jobs.

Solution

To solve this issue we need to fix that server name and for that, we can apply the following SQL script:

sp_dropserver 'VMIMAGE01'
GO
sp_addserver  'BTS2020LAB01',local
GO

After applying this script, make sure you restart the SQL Server service.

Once you have done these steps, you can successfully start your BizTalk Backup job.
