Hello everyone.

I have DB, and want to move it to another PC.

I use MSSQL Publishing Wizard or SQL Server Management studio to create dump.

There is some problem after I executed dumped queries.

I get error "Invalid tuple descriptor" when trying to insert something.

I can upgrade domain, it solves this problem.

But it seems that autoincremented IDs reset theirs last inserted value after that.

How can I make correct dump of DO database?

PS. Sorry for my English :)

3 Answers:

With SQL server management studio, you can right click on a database and select "Tasks" then "Backup..." to get a .bak file.

You can then restore this file on another server.

Yes, thanks. I used Tasks-Generate Scripts.

That's not usual way of doing MSSQL database backups. Script generation there is mainly intended to be used for administrative purposes.

I.e. usual way is to use Tasks - Backup \ Restore.

You must ensure all Xxx-Generator tables are included into the dump, and their identity seed and increment values are also dumped there.

These tables are used to emulate sequences, that are supported by other database (and described in SQL-99), but aren't supported by SQL.

Ok, I understand. Here is sql, generated by Management Studio:

CREATE TABLE [dbo].[Int32-Generator](
    [ID] [int] IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL,
 CONSTRAINT [PK_Int32-Generator] PRIMARY KEY CLUSTERED 
(
    [ID] ASC
)WITH (PAD_INDEX  = OFF, STATISTICS_NORECOMPUTE  = OFF, IGNORE_DUP_KEY = OFF, ALLOW_ROW_LOCKS  = ON, ALLOW_PAGE_LOCKS  = ON) ON [PRIMARY]
) ON [PRIMARY]

Both seed and increment = 1.

But I can't find option that will include seed and increment values in dump.

Could you recommend some tool to make correct dumps?
