Hi,

I have number of jobs running. One of the job is failing and shows the status "Between entries". What does it mean.

Is there any way where I can get more information why the job is failing?

Thanks in advance
Aradhya

probably you mean Between retries.
That happens when job has definite retries defined in its properties and when it tries to retry the execution upon failure

Hi sorry,

Its Between retries.

when the job failed I looked into the history on one of the latest failure its giving message

Could not create an acceptable cursor. [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 16955) OLE DB provider "SQLNCLI" for linked server "LNK_SERVER" returned message "Multiple-step OLE DB operation generated errors. Check each OLE DB status value, if available. No work was done.". [SQLSTATE 01000] (Error 7412). NOTE: The step was retried the requested number of times (5) without succeeding. The step failed.

Any idea what does this message means?

Thanks,

yep. it means SQL Agent tried 5 times executing the job and all times it failed due to error in connecting to linked server LNK_SERVER.

Reason can be this

Hi,

I checked the url. But the table from the linked server does not have any datetime datatype.

Any idea?

Thanks,
