BUG #: 57417 (SQLBUG_70)
An abort of a transaction, which involves modifications to multiple databases, can fail with an assertion error. The user connection is dropped when the error occurs.
The SQL Server error log contains a stack dump, and these error messages follow:
kernel SQL Server Assertion: File: <xdesmgr.c>, line = 1800Failed Assertion = 'FALSE' Invalid XDES state transition from PREPARED to ACTIVE context: 4Error: 3624, Severity: 20, State: 1.
An abort of a transaction can be either an error message that occurs when a statement is being modified, or an attention that is initiated by the client.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SQL Server 7.0. This problem has been corrected in U.S. Service Pack 3 for Microsoft SQL Server 7.0. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
