Applies to: SQL Server 2016 Enterprise CoreSQL Server 2016 StandardSQL Server 2016 Developer


When you recover a database that contains memory-optimized tables in Microsoft SQL Server 2016 and 2017, and the tables have clustered columnstore indexes, the recovery takes a long time with a wait type of WAIT_XTP_RECOVERY.


This problem is fixed in the following cumulative updates for SQL Server:

       Cumulative Update 4 for SQL Server 2017

       Cumulative Update 7 for SQL Server 2016 SP1
