BUG #: 363687 (SHILOH_BUGS)
SYMPTOMS
An UPDATE or DELETE statement may result in error 1203 during lock escalation. The text for the error message is:
2002-11-07 14:53:06.29 spid52 Error: 1203, Severity: 20, State: 1
2002-11-07 14:53:06.29 spid52 Process ID 52 attempting to unlock unowned resource PAG: 8:1:10842..
MORE INFORMATION
To support your findings, use SQL Profiler and make sure to capture the SQL:StmtStarting, RPC:StartingLock:Escalation, and the Errorlog events. You will see that the Lock:Escalation event is raised just before the 1203 error is raised. You can use the StartTime data column from SQL Profiler to match the timestamp that is associated with the corresponding 1203 error in the SQL Server error log.
