MORE INFORMATION
After you apply this hotfix, you must enable trace flag 9052 for the fix to take effect. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Start SQL Server Enterprise Manager.
  2. Right-click the instance of SQL Server, and then click Properties.
  3. Click the General tab, and then click Startup Parameters.
  4. In the Startup Parameters dialog box, type -T9052 in the Parameter box.
  5. Click Add, and then click OK.
  6. In the SQL Server Properties dialog box, click OK.
  7. Restart SQL Server.
Note You can also dynamically enable the trace flag by running the dbcc traceon(9052,-1) command. If you run this command, you do not have to restart SQL Server. However, you must run this command every time that you restart SQL Server.
