BUG #: 17269 (WINDOWS: 6.5)


Loading a transaction log dump may fail with an access violation (AV). The database will be in a loading state after the AV, so it will be unusable in the current session. In some situations, the database will recover successfully upon startup, but a DBCC NEWALLOC statement may report Msg 2529. Otherwise, recovery may fail and the database marked suspect. The errorlog will report the following:

Error: 933, Severity: 22, State: 1


The first data page of a table was empty before the LOAD TRANSACTION statement was issued and a transaction being applied requires the first empty page to be deallocated, making the previous second page now the first page.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SQL Server 6.5. This problem has been corrected in Service Pack 5a for Microsoft SQL Server 6.5.For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
