STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section. This problem was first corrected in Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 4.

MORE INFORMATION

To resolve this problem, you must turn on trace flag 9050 after you install the hotfix in the "Resolution" section. To do so, follow these steps:
  1. Start SQL Server Enterprise Manager.
  2. Right-click the instance of SQL Server, and then click Properties.
  3. Click the General tab, and then click Startup Parameters.
  4. In the Startup Parameters dialog box, type -T9050 in the Parameter box.
  5. Click Add, and then click OK.
  6. In the SQL Server Properties (Configure) dialog box, click OK.
  7. Restart the instance of SQL Server.
Additionally, you must turn on trace flag 9209. To turn on trace flag 9209, repeat the previous steps. However, in step 4, type -T9209 instead of -T9050 in the Parameter box. Trace flag 9209 is described in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
