FIX: SQL Server Agent job randomly stops when you schedule the job to run past midnight on specific days in SQL Server 2005, in SQL Server 2008 or in SQL Server 2008 R2

Extended support for SQL Server 2005 ends on April 12, 2016

If you are still running SQL Server 2005 after April 12, 2016, you will no longer receive security updates and technical support. We recommend upgrading to SQL Server 2014 and Azure SQL Database to achieve breakthrough performance, maintain security and compliance, and optimize your data platform infrastructure. Learn more about the options for upgrading from SQL Server 2005 to a supported version here.

Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2008 or Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2008 or SQL Server 2008 R2 update release.
SYMPTOMS
When you configure a SQL Server Agent job to run past midnight on specific days in Microsoft SQL Server 2005, in Microsoft SQL Server 2008 or in Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2, the job randomly stops sometime after it runs past a time of 00:00. However, the job resumes running the next scheduled day.

For example, assume that you schedule a SQL Server Agent job to run from 22:00 to 02:00 on Monday, on Tuesday, on Wednesday, on Thursday, and on Friday. Additionally, you set the frequency to every 15 minutes. In this scenario, the job might stop at 23:45 on Monday and then resume at 22:00 on Tuesday.

Note This issue occurs in SQL Server 2005 only if you install one of the following update packages:
  • Cumulative update package 13 for SQL Server 2005 Service Package 3 (SP3) or a later cumulative update package for SQL Server 2005 SP3
  • Cumulative update package 3 for SQL Server 2005 Service Package 4 (SP4) or a later cumulative update package for SQL Server 2005 SP4
  • The security update 2494112 that is documented in security bulletin MS11-049 for SQL Server 2005 SP3
