BUG #: 58522 (SQLBUG_70)BuG #: 58383 (SQLBUG_70)
A KEYSET cursor opened against a linked server query, which returns one or more text or image columns, and is interrupted, may cause the following error message when the system process ID (SPID) attempts to disconnect:
2000-10-16 13:05:49.52 spid77 Found active sdes for spid 77 tabid -253095547 in clean_process
Interruptions can include, but are not limited to:
Remote query timeouts.
Other conditions that might alter normal query result flow.
The SDES error message is generally followed by one or more stack traces which end in SQL Server process termination. You may also see error messages, such as 5180, which indicate problems with tempdb. To clear these errors, restart the SQL Server server.
Only return data columns that are not text or image from cursors against linked servers.
