FIX: Access violation when you split a partitioned table in SQL Server 2012

Symptoms
Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a partitioned table that contains an identity column in Microsoft SQL Server 2012.
  • The table is referenced by an indexed view.
  • You split a partition of the table by using the ALTER PARTITION function.
In this scenario, an access violation may occur.
Cause
This issue occurs because SQL Server 2012 typically checks whether the identity column increases or decreases when you split the partition. However, this operation fails. Additionally, this verification is not a required operation when you split a partitioned table.
