SQL Server 2005 Error Message - when Right Clicking a DB > Properties


We are running SQL Server 2005 SP03, we have x15 databases (excluding SBO-COMMON, RSP, Coresuite), all x15 databases have Maintenance Plans setup, tasks ticked:

- Shrink Database

- Clean Up History

- Back up Database (Full)

- Maintenance Clean-up task

These Maintenance Plans have been running for over 5 months now, we have recently changed our VMware Virtual Server over to a Hosted VMware Virtual Server, now when I right click on a certain database and select "Properties" I get the following error message with SQL Server:

Property Owner is not available for Database '[Turquoise_Moon_Live]'. This property may not exist for this object, or may not be retrievable due to insufficient access rights. (Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo)

Could the Maintenance Plan be preventing me to run the Properties against a relevant DB (I have tested this by restoring a DB that doe not have a Maintenance Plan and the Properties works, tested this on SBO-COMMON and it works as well)

Can anyone agree with me or let me know what else might be the issue as I have checked the Server Roles & the Users Credentials for SQL and all seems well.

    Hi Kurt Walters,

    Have you reset those plans after moving the database to new VM?

    • Hi Gordon

      Thanks very much for the help, I basically did a Detach and Re-attach and the properties option becomes available for the relevant database on SQL Server 2005 now.

      So as you said it basically carried across the data / security settings from the old server to the new therefore prompting me to detach and re-attach.
