BUG #: 518 (SQL Hotfix)
Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2005 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 2005 fix release.
This article describes the following about this hotfix release:
When you create and then drop many temporary tables in Microsoft SQL Server 2005, errors may be generated in the tempdb database. When this problem occurs, the following error messages may be logged in the SQL Server Errorlog file:
Error: 605, Severity: 21, State: 3. Attempt to fetch logical page (1:584) in database 2 failed. It belongs to allocation unit 445237904015360 not to 72057594060079104.
Error: 3316, Severity: 21, State: 1. During undo of a logged operation in database 'tempdb', an error occurred at log record ID (49:16:7). The row was not found. Restore the database from a full backup, or repair the database.
When error 605 and error 3316 are generated, both the following error messages may also be logged in the SQL Server Errorlog file:
Error: 5243, Severity: 22, State: 1. An inconsistency was detected during an internal operation. Please contact technical support. Reference number 8.
Error: 3314, Severity: 21, State: 4. During undoing of a logged operation in database 'tempdb', an error occurred at log record ID (49:16:12). Typically, the specific failure is logged previously as an error in the Windows Event Log service. Restore the database or file from a backup, or repair the database.
Additionally, when error 605 and error 3316 are generated, the SQL Server service stops.
Error: 3449, Severity: 21, State: 1. SQL Server must shut down in order to recover a database (database ID 2). The database is either a user database that could not be shut down or a system database. Restart SQL Server. If the database fails to recover after another startup, repair or restore the database.
