Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:
  • You enable the Common Criteria compliance option on your Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2, SQL Server 2012, SQL Server 2008, or SQL Server 2014 instance.
  • You log on to the SQL Server instance by using the SA account.
  • You run the statement DBCC CHECKDB against the master database.
In this scenario, you receive the following error message:
Msg 2570, Level 16, State 2, Line 1
Page (#:#), slot # in object ID #, index ID #, partition ID #, alloc unit ID # (type "In-row data"). Column "name" value is out of range for data type "nvarchar". Update column to a legal value.

Cause

This issue occurs because of a product bug in Common Criteria compliance and the way it inserts one-byte data into an NVARCHAR type column of the sys.sysbinobjs table.
