model view is the easiest way to work around this
What is the easiest way to capture the SQL statement for
a Report Builder report you're troubleshooting?
Profiler will work as long as you have permissions to
profile the server and is the the best solution because
it requires no change to the Report Server itself. There

option was not listed here and is better used if you
want to do analysis rather than troubleshooting.

You have a large table that you wish to partition to
improve performance. The table contains many columns of
data about customers and you decide that basic
information about each customer will remain in the
current table. Extended information, such as shipping
instructions, secretaries' names, etc. will be moved to
a new table along with the PK. What type of partitioning
If you are moving some columns from one table to a new
table, this is vertical partitioning.
On which platforms can you use Instant File
Initialization to improve database growth performance in
SQL Server 2005?
Windows 2003 and XP Pro
Both Windows 2003 Server and later as well as Windows XP
Professional support Instant File Initialization.
You have created a database snapshot on SQL Server 2005
for the sales database to capture the end-of-month
activity. The next day your server fails and you need to
recover to a standby server using the previous night's
backups. How do you recover the snapshot?
There is nothing you can do. The snapshot is lost.
Database snapshots cannot be backed up, so once the
server failed, the database snapshot was lost.
Using Reporting Services 2005, it is true or false that
subreports execute a query against the datasource once
for every detail row in the report?
True. Subreports can be used for a master-detail
relationship, or the subreport can be a separate item,
but in either case RS will query to get the data for the
report once for each detail row. If end users are going
to only occasionally look at the data you're displaying
in the subreport or only view it for a few rows, a
better option is to create a link to the other report.
You have noticed in both your SQL Server 2000 and 2005
instances that when a database grows in SQL Server,
there is a delay in the database response. Why is that?
Once the file is grown, zeros are written to the new
space, causing a delay.
When a database file grows, unless instant file
initialization is turned on, the server must allocate
disk space and then write 0s into all that space. This
zero-ing out of the file creates the delay.
Which utility is used to administer SQL Server 2005
Notification Services instances?
