Consider the following scenario. You perform a bulk copy in a transaction in SQL Server 2000. In the same transaction, you insert data in the same table. When you try to roll back the transaction, you may receive the following error message:
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][DBNETLIB]ConnectionCheckForData (CheckforData()).
Server: Msg 11, Level 16, State 1, Line 0
General network error. Check your network documentation. Connection Broken
Additionally, the status of the database is set to Suspect. Error messages that resemble the following are logged in the SQL Server ErrorLog file:

This problem occurs because SQL Server 2000 cannot roll back a transaction when both logged changes and non-logged changes have been made on the splitting pages.


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.
