FIX: Replication Log Reader Agent fails when you enable CDC and transactional replication for some columns in SQL Server

When you enable change data capture (CDC) and transactional replication for some columns of a table in Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2, SQL Server 2012, or SQL Server 2014, the Log Reader Agent may fail occasionally, and you receive the following error messages:
The process could not execute 'sp_replcmds' on 'SERVERNAME'. (Source: MSSQL_REPL, Error number: MSSQL_REPL20011)
Get help: http://help/MSSQL_REPL20011
Could not locate text information records for the column "ColumnName", ID 18 during command construction. (Source: MSSQLServer, Error number: 18773)

The issue was first fixed in the following cumulative update of SQL Server.
