Post unable to enable system audit on sql server 2000 Reply with quote

pardon if this was already covered, but i cound't find anyone with a similar issue.
While trying to set this up for the first time, i was able to connect to my db and then launch the audit options, but after trying to save and enable it, i get an error that the server must be restarted, and the dll copied....
so i copied the xp_audit.dll to my sql\binn folder and restarted the service, but am still unable to enable any auditing options.
following is the series of msgs shown in event viewer:
The description for Event ID ( 1001 ) in Source ( DB Audit ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. The following information is part of the event:
Starting audit event tracer procedure.

Obviously it is an issue with the connection. The local to the server audit process cannot connect to SQL Server. Try connecting to the SQL server using "Trusted connection" option and re-enabling the audit. Please make sure you have admin right on the server. Please let us know if that helps.

PS. The record in event log should say "using integrated security"

I have exactly same problem . I had Domain admin authority and use trusted connection.
But when I issue EXEC sp_db_audit_startup in MASTER DB. I get " Msg 20001, Level 1, State 20001
Error (dbcmd) executing sp_bindsession procedure." . The interesting part is some sql server work without problem. Some give me the above mesage.

This happens usually after some problems in SQL Server. If you restart SQL SErver you will see this problem go away.

I am receiving the exact same errors. Has this been resolved.

I have restarted SQL several times. I also uninstalled and reinstalled DB Audit. No luck

This is either an invalid login issue or something is wrong with the user setup in SQL Server.

Check points:
1. Make sure you can login to the server from the server computer using Windows authentication
2. Make sure this particular login is known to SQL Server (listed in logins, member of the "System Administrators" server role and is explicitly set as a member of the "public" role in the master)
