If you have already registered the server in Profiler you will need to change
the login parameters for the registration. Do the following:
- select "edit sql server
registration..." from the Tools menu
- select your server from
the list and click on the Edit button
- change the login and
password of the user to "admin" and "blah" respectively
- click on the ok button
There are other gotchas mentioned in bol but these were the only ones I encountered
when attempting to replay my trace. After taking into consideration all of the
gotchas and taking any action where appropriate I'm ready to replay the trace.
In order to replay the trace do the following:
- Open the trace file in Profiler (File - Open - Trace File...)
- After the trace file loads select Settings from the Replay menu
- Select your Development Server from the list of servers. If your server
is not in the list you will need to register it by selecting "<new server>"
- I select a Sync Level of "Full Synchronization" and a Replay rate of "Maintain
interval between events". For more information on how these options effect
the replay of your trace review bol.. Specify an output file if you wish to
record the results of your replay.
