BUG #: 17016 (WINDOWS: 6.5)

SYMPTOMS

If you execute DBCC OPENTRAN against a database, the first line, which identifies the name of the database, reports an incorrect database name. However, the results show the correct open transaction information for the database specified in the DBCC statement.

CAUSE

The sp_renamedb procedure had previously been used to rename the database.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft SQL Server version 6.5. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.

MORE INFORMATION

The name reported by DBCC OPENTRAN is the name of the database at the time it was created.

For example, if you run DBCC OPENTRAN(pubsdb), you will get the following results:

Transaction Information for database: pubs
Oldest active transaction:

        SPID          : 11
        UID           : 1
        SUID          : 1
        Name          : user_transaction
        RID           : (1365 , 7)
        Time Stamp    : 0001 0000A95F
        Start Time    : Jun 11 1997 10:35:57:086AM
                

DBCC execution completed. If DBCC printed error messages, see your System Administrator.
