Symptoms


Assume that you have a database in Microsoft SQL Server 2014 and 2017. If there's a corrupted partition in your database and you run the DBCC CHECKDB command, the SQL Server service crashes. Additionally, a SQL dump file is generated.

Resolution


This fix for this issue is included in the following updates for SQL Server:

         Cumulative Update 13 for SQL Server 2017

Cumulative Update 1 for SQL Server 2014 Service Pack 3

Note This fix raises an error to check the database and then lets the DBCC CHECKDB command end gracefully without crashing.

Status


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