BUG #: 351147 (SHILOH)
After you connect to a SQL Server server, and you then open the Database folder in the left pane of the SQL Server Enterprise Manager (SEM) of SQL Server 2000, it takes a very long time before the tree of databases displays or it may not respond (hang) at all. The time it takes to open the folder is proportional to the number of databases on the server.
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for SQL Server 2000. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in theMicrosoft Knowledge Base:
290211 INF: How to Obtain the Latest SQL Server 2000 Service Pack


The English version of this fix should have the following file attributes or later:
   Date         Time    Version   Size       File name   Platform   --------------------------------------------------------------   12-Dec-2000  12:13   8.00.233  4,194,368  Sqldmo.dll  x86				
NOTE: Due to file dependencies, the most recent hotfix or feature that contains the preceding files may also contain additional files.
To work around this problem either:
  • Use the system stored procedures in the SQL Query Analyzer to administer a SQL Server with many databases.

  • Use the Enterprise Manager of SQL Server 7.0 to administer SQL Server 7.0 servers.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SQL Server 2000. This problem was first corrected in SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 1.

NOTE: The fixed component, Sqldmo.dll, is a client-side component. To correct the issue desribed in this article, you need to apply the hotfix or service pack to all workstations running the SQL Server Enterprise Manager.
