WebinarUpcoming Webinar: Know What’s Changed – with NEW Server Configuration Monitor

Change management in IT is critical. But, even with a good change management process, changes are too often not correctly tracked, if at all. The configuration of your servers and applications is a key factor in their performance, availability, and security. Many incidents can be tracked back to an authorized (and sometimes unauthorized) configuration change, whether to a system file, configuration file, or Windows® Registry entry. Join SolarWinds VP of product management Brandon Shopp to discover how the new SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor is designed to help you.

AppInsight for SQL: A database is mistakenly being reported as having 0 bytes free, triggering false alerts

Overview

AppInsight for SQL: A database is mistakenly being reported as having 0 bytes free, triggering false alerts.

Environment

All SAM versions

Cause

This can occur if your database file is located on a remote Network Attached Storage (NAS) or Windows File Server and is not local to the SQL server itself. AppInsight for SQL has been designed to take volume space into account when calculating the remaining space for databases configured to use auto-grow. Remote volumes will not work.

Resolution

As a workaround:

  • Remove the thresholds
  • Disable the alert
  • Alert upon white space remaining in the database.
