APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Edition 64-bit
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine (Windows)
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Developer Edition
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Edition
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Standard Edition
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Workgroup Edition
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Developer Edition
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Personal Edition



Bug #: 50000297 (SQL Hotfix)

Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2000 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2000 fix release.

SUMMARY

This article describes the following about this hotfix release:

  • The issues that are fixed by this hotfix package
  • The prerequisites for installing the hotfix package
  • Whether you must restart the computer after you install the hotfix package
  • Whether the hotfix package is replaced by any other hotfix package
  • Whether you must make any registry changes
  • The files that are contained in the hotfix package


SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:

  • You compare strings by using one of the width sensitive collations in Microsoft SQL Server 2000. For example, you have three strings. You compare these strings by using the Latin1_general_CS_AS_WS collation.
  • Two of the strings contain punctuation characters at the same position.
  • The punctuation characters in the two strings only differ from each other in character weight. For example, one string contains a half-width hyphen (-). The other string contains a full-width hyphen (-).
  • The punctuation characters are combined with other strings that only have a case difference in the two strings.

In this scenario, you may receive inconsistent comparison results. For example, you may receive the following incorrect results:

String1 > String2 > String3 > String1


The inconsistent comparison may cause index corruption or incorrect results for queries. Additionally, error 644 may be logged in the SQL Server Errorlog file when you execute a query that uses an index on a table that contains such strings.

810185 SQL Server 2000 hotfix update for SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 3 and 3a


RESOLUTION

The installer does not install this hotfix correctly on x64-based systems. This installation issue occurs when the following conditions are true:

  • The system uses the Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) AMD64 processor architecture or the Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology (EM64T) processor architecture.


Note This issue does not occur on systems that use the Intel Itanium processor architecture.

  • The system is running a 64-bit version of the Microsoft Windows Server operating system.
  • The system is running a 32-bit version of SQL Server 2000.

We have corrected this installation issue in later builds of SQL Server 2000, starting with version 8.00.2244. When a customer who is running SQL Server 2000 on an x64-based system requests this hotfix, we will provide a build that includes this hotfix and that can be installed correctly on an x64-based system. The build that we provide will be version 8.00.2244 or a later version.

Hotfix information

A supported hotfix is now available from Microsoft, but it is only intended to correct the problem that is described in this article. Only apply it to systems that are experiencing this specific problem. This hotfix may receive additional testing. Therefore, if you are not severely affected by this problem, we recommend that you wait for the next Microsoft SQL Server 2000 service pack that contains this hotfix.
