Hi

I have recently built a new SQL 2005 server. Formerly when configuring the maintenance plan I was able to select the ADD SUBPLAN tab when creating my plan. Unfortunately the Subplan tabs are not present since new installation.  

Could someone please advise how I make these tabs available?

Kind regards

SQL Server 2005 version 9.00.1399 is the RTM without any service packs.  You should really apply the latest SP.  I'm not sure if that will fix your issue or not, but it's a good place to start.

Hi

This is the sub plan I was referring to. Strangely after a second re-boot post service pack 3 install the tab is now available.

I will now close this query. Many thanks for your comments
