Bug: #50000592 (SQL Hotfix)
Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2000 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2000 fix release.
This article describes the following about this hotfix release:
  • The issues that are fixed by this hotfix package
  • The prerequisites for installing the hotfix package
  • Information about whether you must restart the computer after you install the hotfix package
  • Information about whether the hotfix package is replaced by any other hotfix package
  • Information about whether you must make any registry changes
  • The files that are contained in the hotfix package
When you run a full-text query in SQL Server 2000 while a catalog merge operation also occurs, the result set may not return quickly. When this delay occurs, the SQL Server User Mode Scheduler (UMS) may stop responding. Additionally, you may experience stalled worker request behavior.

When this problem occurs, you may receive an error message that resembles the following:
Error: 17883, Severity: 1, State: 0 The Scheduler %1!ld! appears to be hung. SPID %2!ld!, ECID %3! ld!, UMS Context 0x%4!p!
For a list of all publicly released SQL Server 2000 Post-Service Pack 3a hotfixes, see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
810185 SQL Server 2000 hotfix update for SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 3 and 3a
The installer does not install this hotfix correctly on x64-based systems. This installation issue occurs when the following conditions are true:
  • The system uses the Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) AMD64 processor architecture or the Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology (EM64T) processor architecture.

    Note This issue does not occur on systems that use the Intel Itanium processor architecture.
  • The system is running a 64-bit version of the Microsoft Windows Server operating system.
  • The system is running a 32-bit version of SQL Server 2000.
We have corrected this installation issue in later builds of SQL Server 2000, starting with version 8.00.2244. When a customer who is running SQL Server 2000 on an x64-based system requests this hotfix, we will provide a build that includes this hotfix and that can be installed correctly on an x64-based system. The build that we provide will be version 8.00.2244 or a later version.

Note Because of file dependencies, the most recent hotfix or feature that contains these files may contain additional files.
To work around this problem, use the following guidelines when you maintain full-text catalogs.
  • Avoid incremental updates to the catalog. Instead, use change tracking to apply the full-text index changes.
  • Disable background updates. To do this, run the sp_fulltext_table stored procedure together with the stop_background_updateindex option. Do not use background updates. Instead, use the update_index option at a scheduled time to apply the full-text index changes.
  • Use the FULLTEXTCATALOGPROPERTY function to monitor the status of the catalog.
  • Use the sp_fulltext_service stored procedure together with the resource_usage option to increase the resource usage to a level of 5. The level specifies the resources that are used for the Microsoft Search Service (MSSearch). When you increase the resource_usage value, faster catalog builds occur.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
