Known Issues

Known Issues

The following is a list of issues known to exist at the time of the SQL Optimizer release.

Feature Known Issue Defect ID
General

If you uninstall the standalone version of SQL Optimizer with Toad for SQL Server and SQL Optimizer installed, you can no longer launch SQL Optimizer by sending SQL statements from Toad for SQL Server to SQL Optimizer.

ST77615

When you launch SQL Optimizer from Windows 2000, you may get an error message, "Quest.Tuning.SQLSvr.Main has encountered a problem and needs to close."

Workaround:

Download and install MSXML 6.0 from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=3988.

ST102569

Installation

If you upgrade to SQL Optimizer for SQL Server 10.0.1 from a previous version (and install versions side-by-side) and then uninstall a previous version, when you attempt to send SQL from Toad for SQL Server to SQL Optimizer, you will encounter an error. After closing the error message, the SQL may or may not be sent successfully.

Workaround:

  • Uninstall SQL Optimizer 10.0 before installing version 10.0.1.
  • Or use the Repair feature in the SQL Optimizer for SQL Server 10.0.1 .msi Installer to replace the missing files.

N/A

Installation

If you upgrade to SQL Optimizer for SQL Server 10.0.1 from a previous version and then uninstall SQL Optimizer 10.0.1, the Start menu shortcut and some installation files are not completely removed.

Workaround: After uninstalling SQL Optimizer 10.0.1, manually remove the SQL Optimizer 10.0.1 shortcut and remaining 10.0.1 installation files.

N/A

Installation

After installing SQL Optimizer for SQL Server 10.0.1, if you then install a previous version of SQL Optimizer side-by-side with 10.0.1, and then uninstall version 10.0.1, you cannot launch the previous version from the Start menu.

Workaround: Launch the previous version of SQL Optimizer using the executable in the installation directory.

N/A

Installation

When you upgrade from 7.1 to 8.0, the error window "Quest.Tuning.SQLSvr.Main" displays.

Workaround:

  1. Uninstall 7.1.
  2. Install 8.0.

ST90338

When you upgrade from 7.0 to 7.1 or from 7.1 to 8.0, Install for Everyone does not work.

ST89823

You are not provided with an option to upgrade when installing SQL Optimizer 7.1 if you have SQL Optimizer 7.0 installed with Toad for SQL Server.

Workaround:

Perform a side-by-side installation of SQL Optimizer 7.0.

ST83496

Optimize SQL

When you connect to SQL Server using Windows group, you cannot define a default schema.

Workarounds:

  1. Connect to the SQL Server with a login who has permission to create a user, and use the following script to create a user login (replace domainname\username with your NT login). USE [yourdbname] GO CREATE USER [domainman\username] FOR LOGIN [domainname\username] WITH DEFAULT_SCHEMA=[dbo] GO. After the above is created, connect to the database using Windows Authentication to use SQL Optimizer.
  2. Contact your Database Administrator to directly add your domainuser as a login.

ST84377

A SQL statement with a hidden control character in the text is classified as Invalid.

ST41386, ST98296

Optimizing SQL with DBO.Sys Objects results in a "Table does not exist" error because Sys Objects reside in the SYS schema and not the DBO schema. Since the DBO schema is only backwards compatible to SQL Server, SQL Optimizer is unable to access it.

Workaround:

Optimize SQL with Sys Objects with the SYS schema instead of the DBO schema.

ST75908

Executing SQL alternatives with an Option Clause using Query Hints for SELECT statements in CREATE VIEW causes an error because these statements are not supported by SQL Server.

Workaround:

Clear the checkbox for the SQL alternative with the Option Clause before using the Auto Optimize or Optimize function to generate alternatives without the Option Clause.
