In SQL Server 2019, you run a PolyBase query that meets the following criteria:
- The result set has a VARCHAR(MAX) column.
- Thequery has certain execution plan shape characteristics. For example, it has a globalaggregation.
In this scenario, you encounter the following problems:
- If the column contains characterdata that cannot be encoded by using the current locale of the PolyBaseEngine process, or the result of the encoding that uses the current locale isdifferent from the encoding that is specified in the column's collation, you see incorrecttranslation of that character data. Specifically, untranslatable characterswill be replaced by a question mark (?).
- If the PolyBase Engine process is running as a user and has a custom locale, you receive the following error message:
System.Globalization.CultureNotFoundException: Culture is not supported.Parameter name: culture3072 (0x0c00) is an invalid culture identifier.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
