SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You run a CREATE INDEX statement on an instance of Microsoft SQL Server 2000.
  • At the same time, you run a CREATE INDEX statement on another instance of SQL Server 2000.
  • Both instances of SQL Server 2000 are running on the same server.
  • The server has 16 or more CPUs.
  • The server has SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 4 (SP4), hotfix build 8.00.2151, or a later hotfix build installed.
In this scenario, you may experience one or more of the following symptoms:
  • You experience a decrease in the performance of both instances of SQL Server 2000.
  • Both instances of SQL Server 2000 stop responding.
  • The CPU utilization on the server is high.
  • Error 17883 is logged in the SQL Server error log file.

RESOLUTION

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.

Note Because of file dependencies, the most recent hotfix or feature that contains these files may also contain additional files.

WORKAROUND

To work around this problem, use one of the following methods:
  • Use the sp_configure stored procedure to set the affinity mask option to a different value for each instance of SQL Server 2000. Therefore, the CPUs that are used by each instance of SQL Server 2000 do not overlap.

    For example, set the affinity mask option to the 0xFFFF0000 value for one instance of SQL Server 2000. Then, set the affinity mask option to the 0x0000FFFF value for the other instance of SQL Server 2000.
  • Do not run the CREATE INDEX statement on both instances of SQL Server 2000 at the same time. Schedule the CREATE INDEX statement to run on the instances of SQL Server 2000 at different times.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
