We are experiencing the same symptom, but most likely a different cause. Permissions are fine since SQL Compare works perfectly with the database (scripting, comparing, and synchronizing), but SQL Dependency Tracker does not list out the objects. The database is a PeopleSoft database with a large number of customizations, so the object count is huge. In excess of 5000 tables, 2000 procedures, etc., which occasionally even makes SSMS Object Explorer choke.
Oddly, it immediately presents a sub-set of the objects (i.e. it doesn't wait 30 or 60 seconds first). On another very large database, but smaller, it takes about 20 seconds before it presents all the objects. If it were timing out, I would expect it reach 30 seconds (as an example) but it doesn't for this particularly large database. It presents the short list of objects in about 1-2 seconds with no error message being presented.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
