Event Viwer Error ODBC

Filed under: info — admin @ 8:56 am



You are runign in services.mcs  Smlogsvc.exe service and that service is run under Network Service account that have no privilege to read  data from MS SQL bin folder. Locate your MSSQL bin folder add permisons to  Network Service to be able to read.

Long: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/912399/en-us

The description for Event ID ( 0 ) in Source ( ODBC ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: Error in d:\nt\enduser\databaseaccess\src\mdac\odbc\core\dm\perf.c(349), Access is denied.

: Failed to create mutex for MS ODBC Perf File Mapping.


This problem occurs because the Performance Logs and Alerts service (Smlogsvc.exe) does not have sufficient permissions to access the performance counter DLL or the “bin” directory and “bin\en” directoryfor SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services.

On a Windows XP-based computer, the Performance Logs and Alerts service runs under the Network Service account. However, the Network Service account has limited permissions on the local computer. The Network Service account cannot access the performance counter DLL or the SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services “bin” directory and the “bin\en” directorywhen you collect data from SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services performance counters.


To resolve this problem, you must grant the Read & Execute permission to the Network Service account on the performance counter DLL for SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services. The DLL is located in the following folder:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.x\OLAP\Bin\Msmdctr90.dll

Additionally, you must grant Read permissions to the Network Service account on the “bin” directory and the “bin\en” directory for SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services. For example:

  • C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.x\OLAP\bin
  • C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.x\OLAP\bin\en

Note MSSQL.x represents the corresponding value for the instance ID in the system.

  9. Family Foot and Ankle Associates, podiatrist in Olney, MD, continues to take strides
    toward remaining on the cutting edge of technology with
    the creation of Family Foot and Ankle Associates of Maryland’s mobile website.
    However, as a modern fan who, like many others perhaps, witnessed the motion picture before understanding
    the value of quality paper-back sci-fi; what the book offers is
    a detailed world that can only be adequetly mirrored by a cutting edge visual
    effects experience. The e mails really contain a locked picture of the first frame of your video and when your recipient clicks on the play button they redirected to a locked website that really plays the video, however the way this is done is well enough no one
    is going to be distracted by such a minor detail.
