AuditPFN

By Rajesh on 1/21/2014

Today I got this problem when trying to restore a Microsoft SQL Server Enterprise database to another server running Microsoft SQL Server Standard Edition. It got me crazy that why this error is coming again and again, whenever no body has created any partition on the database and why it doesn't allow to me to restore the database and import of the organization on my dev environment.

The following error has occurred, which was as followed:
Error:

Restore failed for Server 'SQLServerName'.

Additional information:
An exception occurred while executing a Transact-SQL statement or batch. (Microsoft.SqlServer.ConnectionInfo)
Database '_MSCRM cannot be started in this edition of SQL Server because it contains a partition function 'AuditPFN'. Only Enterprise edition of SQL Server supports partitioning. Database '_MSCRM cannot be started because some of the database functionality is not available in the current edition of SQL Server. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 905) 

When Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 is installed using a Microsoft SQL Server Enterprise edition, a partition is created for the auditing functionality of Dynamics CRM 2011. The AuditBase table uses partitioning which is only available for Microsoft SQL Server Enterprise.

Solutions:

There are two solutions for the given problem.

1.Either upgrade current SQL version to Enterprise. Or

2. Please follow these simple steps to restore a database from Microsoft SQL Server Enterprise to Microsoft SQL Server Standard Edition.

Note: Before performing this operation be sure to take backup of the original organization database on Microsoft SQL Server Enterprise Edition.

1.Restore the  '_MSCRM database to Microsoft SQL Server Enterprise Edition.
2. Run the following script against the restored database.

Script:

IF EXISTS (SELECT name FROM sys.partition_schemes WHERE name='AuditPScheme')
BEGIN
SELECT
CASE WHEN ind.type != 1
THEN
'DROP INDEX [dbo].[AuditBase].' + QUOTENAME(ind.name) + ' '
ELSE ' '
END +
'CREATE ' + CASE is_unique WHEN 1 THEN 'UNIQUE ' ELSE '' END  +
ind.type_desc + ' INDEX ' + QUOTENAME(ind.name  COLLATE SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS )  + ' ON [dbo].' +  QUOTENAME(OBJECT_NAME(object_id)) + ' (' +
    
REVERSE(SUBSTRING(REVERSE((
SELECT name + CASE WHEN sc.is_descending_key = 1 THEN ' DESC' ELSE ' ASC' END + ','
FROM
sys.index_columns sc
JOIN sys.columns c ON sc.object_id = c.object_id AND sc.column_id = c.column_id
WHERE
OBJECT_NAME(sc.object_id) = 'AuditBase' AND
sc.object_id = ind.object_id AND
sc.index_id = ind.index_id
ORDER BY index_column_id ASC
FOR XML PATH('')
)), 2, 8000)) + ')' +
CASE WHEN ind.type = 1
THEN
' WITH (DROP_EXISTING = ON) ON [PRIMARY]'
ELSE
' '
END  as Script
INTO #indexesScript
FROM sys.indexes ind
JOIN sys.partition_schemes ps on ind.data_space_id=ps.data_space_id
WHERE
OBJECT_NAME(object_id) = 'AuditBase'
AND ps.name = 'AuditPScheme'
AND is_unique_constraint = 0
SELECT * FROM #indexesScript
  
DECLARE @recreateScript nvarchar(max)
DECLARE indScript CURSOR FOR
SELECT Script FROM #indexesScript
OPEN indScript
FETCH NEXT FROM indScript INTO @recreateScript
  
WHILE @@FETCH_STATUS = 0  
BEGIN  
BEGIN TRANSACTION t1
Execute sp_executesql @recreateScript
   
IF @@ERROR > 0
BEGIN
ROLLBACK TRAN t1
declare @message varchar(max)
set @message = 'Audit history recreate index failed. SQL: ' + @recreateScript
RAISERROR (@message, 10,1)
END
ELSE
BEGIN
COMMIT TRAN
END
FETCH NEXT FROM indScript INTO @recreateScript  
END  
DROP PARTITION SCHEME AuditPScheme
DROP PARTITION FUNCTION AuditPFN
 
CLOSE indScript  
DEALLOCATE indScript
DROP TABLE #indexesScript
END

4. You can backup the database whenever script is complete, now database should be easily restored on to a Microsoft SQL Server Standard edition.
