BUG#: 235040 (Shiloh_bugs)
After a failover and failback of the SQL Server resource group, error messages from the SQL Server resource DLL may not be logged in the Application Log in the Event Viewer. The following two error messages are examples of messages that may not be logged:
Event Type: Error Event Source: MSSQLSERVER Event ID: 17052 Description: [sqsrvres] CheckServiceAlive: Service is dead
Event Type: Error Event Source: MSSQLSERVER Event ID: 17052 Description: [sqsrvres] OnlineThread: service stopped while waiting for QP.
Although these messages may not be logged to the Event Viewer, they are still also logged, by default, to the cluster log (%systemroot%\Cluster\cluster.log) on that node.
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for SQL Server 2000. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in theMicrosoft Knowledge Base:
290211 INF: How to Obtain the Latest SQL Server 2000 Service Pack
If you restart the cluster service, logging in the Event Viewer should resume.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in SQL Server 2000. This problem was first corrected in SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 1.
