stops monitoring every saturday @1AM

Postby jbreien » Mon Oct 17, 2011 9:25 am

Every monday for the past month i´ve had to reconnect on a number of servers that are monitored, but not all of them....

the logfile in sqlmonitor shows:
User "sqlmonitor" does not have permission to run DBCC SHOWCONTIG for database 'msdb'.

as mentioned, a simple reconnect and everything is peachy, but its alarming that i lose surveillance every weekend...

in my test cluster, 4 out of 6 sql instances have "monitoring stopped" and 6 out of 8 on my production cluster!

all the windows servers in the cluster are still monitored though...

the permissions for the surveillance account are set up the same for all instances....

Any ideas ?

I would suggest sending all the log files to especially from around the time this error happens.
