Consider the following scenario:
You have a large partitioned table in Microsoft SQL Server 2012 or SQL Server 2014.
The table contains a char, varchar, or nvarchar type column.
You try to create an index in the column.
In this scenario, you cannot create the index, and you receive the following error message:
Msg 701, Level 17, State 123, Line 2
There is insufficient system memory in resource pool 'default' to run this query.
