BUG# 7823 (4.2)


When attempting to set the parameters for SQL Monitor from the command line using the NETSQL command on LAN Manager-based networks, the following occurs:

  • The value for the second parameter passed is not set correctly.
  • It does not display the Logsize parameter.
  • The value for the sqltimeout parameter (180 by default) is incorrectly shown as the value of the Logsize parameter (4096 by default).

For example, assuming the default values for the SQL Monitor parameters are not changed in LANMAN.INI, executing

   Netsql start sqlmonitor /backuptime=10 /monitortime=10

followed by

   Netsql config sqlmonitor

shows the following output:

   Monitor is                                 off
   Monitor wakeup interval (seconds)          60
   Backup is                                  On
   Backup wakeup internal (minutes)           10
   Max rows allowed in monitor table          500
   SQL Query/Login timeout interval           1024


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SQL Administrator 4.2a. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
