I have trigger on new row insert which send net send message to client computers. It was working perfect on SQL Server 2000, now we migrate to SQL Server 2008 and my trigger is not working at all I cant send net send messages from SQL Server 2008. Is there any way that I can have messaging like on SQL 2000. I am using Windows Server 2008 32-bit, client computers have WinXP and Win7 OS.

Thanks

net send has been replaced, meanwhile, by msg

then, you have no choice but use some third-party lan messaging tool, which you will need to install on all the required computers (via group policy, for example)

> that support SQL server
all you need is a command line call possibility...

I don't know any, because I never use(d) net send for this kind of messaging, because I only use sms and/or email notifications ...

You can use msg.exe to send messages to XP as well, provided you allow remote RPC on the clients as described here:

Thanks oBdA, just want to check if this is OK in trigger:

in sql server 2000 have:
DECLARE @poruka as char(200)
DECLARE @poruka1 as char(200)
SET @poruka1 = 'net send computer1 ' + ' New text ! '
EXEC master..xp_cmdshell @poruka1, no_output

and in sql server 2008 change it to:
DECLARE @poruka as char(200)
DECLARE @poruka1 as char(200)
SET @poruka1 = 'msg /server:computer1 * ' + ' New text ! '
EXEC master..xp_cmdshell @poruka1, no_output

Is this OK or do I have to change something else?

Thanks

Together with the registry change on the clients, that should do the trick.
