Enterprise Manager reporting wrong server version

P: n/a
I am running MS SQL 2000.

I recently ran a procedure in Query Analyzer from the Master db to
clear out all replication information so I could start/recreate it
again.

After I ran this procedure Enterprise Manager no longer showed the
registered server in the tree. When I tried to re-register it gave me
the following message:

"A connection could not be established to ([Database Name])"

"Reason: [SQL-DMO]Sql Server ([Database Name]) must be upgraded to
version 7.0 or later to be administered by this version of SQL-DMO"

"Please verify that sql is running and check your SQL server
registration properties (by right click on the ([Database Name]) node)
and try again."

I ran the following procedure:

<code>

OK, so you've learnt a lesson for the next time: run in test before you
run in production.

You run a script that performs a lot of updates to the system tables,
and in many cases to undocumented columns, and now you wonder why your
server is hosed?

I can't tell if there were was more that was harmful, but this cursor
definitely was:

SELECT name FROM sysobjects WHERE type='P' and (name like 'sp_ins_%'
or name like 'sp_MSdel_%' or name like 'sp_MSins_%'or
name like 'sp_MSupd_%' or name like 'sp_sel_%' or name like 'sp_upd_%')

OPEN list_procs

FETCH NEXT FROM list_procs INTO @name
WHILE @@FETCH_STATUS = 0
BEGIN
PRINT 'dropping procs ' +@name
select @name='drop procedure ' + @name
EXEC sp_executesql @name
FETCH NEXT FROM list_procs INTO @name
END

The SELECT hits 30 system procedures on my server, and far from all
are related to replication, for instance sp_updatestats and
sp_updateextendedproperty.

I would recommand that you at first possible maintenance window, detach
all databases and use the rebuildm tool to rebuild the master database.
Or simply reinstall SQL Server. Whatever, don't forget to reapply the
service pack.

If it's difficult to find the time for a reinstall, I suggest that you
open a case with Microsoft. I don't really want to guide you which
scripts to run, as my guidance could be wrong.

P: n/a
Thank you for your reply.

Unfortunately I didn't have the luxury of a test environment, so I
took a big risk I know. Thankfully we had backups running on Veritas, I
restored to a previous version of the master and msdb databases and
this fixed my problem.
