Email que alerts permissions issues - event id 1023

Hi Guys,

I have set up an SMTP server queue length counter (to log events in application log when the mail gue gets over 10 emails waiting) in Performance Monitor on Exchange 2003.

Unfortunately now i get the following error message every few seconds:

Source: Perflib  event ID: 1023
Windows cannot load extensible counter DLL MSSQL$SBSMONITORING, the first DWORD in data section is the Windows error code.

I understand this is a know microsoft permissions issue, as documented in this link:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/912399

"To resolve this problem, you must grant the Read & Execute permission to the Network Service account on the performance counter DLL for SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services. The DLL is located in the following folder:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.x\OLAP\Bin\Msmdctr90.dll
Additionally, you must grant Read permissions to the Network Service account on the "bin" directory and the "bin\en" directory for SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services. For example:

•C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.x\OLAP\bin
•C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.x\OLAP\bin\en
Note MSSQL.x represents the corresponding value for the instance ID in the system."



However, I do not have the *OLAP\bin folders in any instance of MSSQL.x so I' not sure what exactly i need to give new permissions to.???

Would it be appropriate to just give Read&Execute permissions to the whole \Microsoft SQL Server\ folder? Has anyone experienced this issue before?

This is a small though LIVE server so I dont want to take any unncecessary risks.

Thank you in advance

I'm not sure if this will help you or not, but it seems OLAP is not installed by default.

You may be able to start here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc917552.aspx

I'm really not sure if it will help.

Thanks,

Solution:

Depending on the error description, i.e. counter DLL MSSQL$SHAREPOINT, or DLL MSSQL$MONITORING
Go into the relevant folder at C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL$SHAREPOINT\Binn

Find a file named sqlctr80.dll and give Read & Execute permissions to the Performance log Users and Performance Monitor Users

Repeat this step for MSSQL$MONITORING folder or any other MSSQL$x folder that Error ID 1023 suggests
