Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 5120 (Access Denied)

I am trying to attach a database into MS SQL server 2012/ Altering from Read only true to Read only fals;
The following error is occurred:
Unable to open the physical file “, filename”, Operating system error 5: “(Access Denied)”. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 5120)


The associated file/s (.mdf or .ldf) read only or SQL (user) do not have permission to access file in the location it saved.
Browse the location of file/s (.mdf or .ldf) right click on file –>Properties


Click On security Tab –> Select the user (for me it is Everyone) –>click on Edit
And check the full control/ Modify option in Allow column–> Apply –>OK
Do the same for all other associated files, if any.
Now it’s completed. Try what are you doing.

SQL server 2008 course fees in mumbai

I experienced that many guys are search the training fee of SQL server DBA, so I like to give a note on the DBA training fee which may applicable in Mumbai and other city in India.

The training institutions charges the fee as per there course module. And some time it’s varying institute to institute. Here I’m giving approximate fee on the basis of courses and training facility of institution.

 On the Base of Microsoft certification:

          If any one looking for SQL server certification’s training fee, it will be Rs. 7000 to 12000 for only one exam module, i.e. exam 70-432, exam 70-450, which is mostly excluding exam fee. The exam fee mostly charged Rs. 2250 to Rs.2500 extra.

On the Base of Institute’s certification:

            Some time training institute provides a certificate of completion of SQL Server DBA course or after exam held by institution. That is all up to institution may charges Rs. 10000 to 25000 depends upon the course material deleing by them and facility provided.

Note: This is recommended to candidate that he/she must ask clearly about all aspect of training like fee includes study material or other facility or not, and qualified trainer is available or not etc. The above detail is only my opinion reader please use there transparency while select training institution.
