I enabled Change Data Capture on some tables in a Microsoft SQL 2008 database. Both of the following queries return 1:
select top 1 is_cdc_enabled from sys.databases where name = N'<DatabaseName>' select top 1 T.[is_tracked_by_cdc] from sys.tables as T left join sys.schemas as S on T.[schema_id] = S.[schema_id] where S.[name] = N'<SchemaName>' and T.[name] = N'<TableName>'
but when I change the data of a concerned table,
cdc.<SchemaName>_<TableName>_CT remains empty.
Check to make sure the SQL Agent is running, and that there is a capture job created that is enabled and running for the CDC instance, it should show Change Data Capture Collection Agent / executing.
