SUMMARY

This article describes the following about this hotfix release:
  • The issues that are fixed by this hotfix package.

SYMPTOMS

You may receive a 17883 error message in Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 3 (SP3) or in Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 3a (SP3a) when a worker thread becomes stuck in a registry call. When the error occurs, SQL Server generates an associated mini-dump. When you review the mini-dump, you will see a stack that is similar to the following:
NTDLL!NtOpenKey+0xb 
ADVAPI32!LocalBaseRegOpenKey
ADVAPI32!RegOpenKeyExW
sqlservr!CServerHeartbeat::UpdateUptimeRegKey 
sqlservr!CServerHeartbeat::OnHeartbeat 


For a list of previous hotfixes, see the "Microsoft SQL Server 2000 post-Service Pack 3 or Microsoft SQL Server 2000 post-Service Pack 3a hotfixes" section in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
290211 How to obtain the latest SQL Server 2000 service pack


CAUSE

This problem occurs more frequently on larger installations during processing periods that produce more physical I/O burden on the overall system. One of the key worker threads in SQL Server 2000 SP3 is the heartbeat task. The heartbeat task was added in SQL Server 2000 SP3. The heartbeat task updates the registry every 60 seconds. The heartbeat task can become wedged in the registry call. If that occurs, the UMS scheduler that the task is assigned to also becomes wedged. When the UMS scheduler is wedged, no more queries or connections can be processed on the scheduler until the worker completes the registry call and returns control to SQL Server.
