FIX: An assertion violation may be logged after you install SQL Server 2005 or after you add more processors to a server that is running SQL Server 2005

Extended support for SQL Server 2005 ended on April 12, 2016

If you are still running SQL Server 2005, you will no longer receive security updates and technical support. We recommend upgrading to SQL Server 2014 and Azure SQL Database to achieve breakthrough performance, maintain security and compliance, and optimize your data platform infrastructure. Learn more about the options for upgrading from SQL Server 2005 to a supported version here.

Bug #: 50000741 (SQL Hotfix)
Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2005 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 2005 fix release.
SUMMARY
This article describes the following about this hotfix release:
  • The issues that are fixed by this hotfix package
  • The prerequisites for applying this hotfix package
  • Whether you must restart the computer after you apply this hotfix package
  • Whether this hotfix package replaces any other hotfix package
  • Whether you must make any registry changes after you apply this hotfix package
  • The files that are contained in this hotfix package
SYMPTOMS
After you install Microsoft SQL Server 2005, an assertion violation that resembles the following may be logged in the SQL Server Errorlog file:
Error: 17066, Severity: 16, State: 1.
2007-01-09 18:02:19.52 spid54 SQL Server Assertion: File: <lckmgr.cpp>, line=8017 Failed Assertion = 'IsOrphaned () || GetHeadOfList (GrantQueue0) != NULL || GetHeadOfList (GrantQueue1) != NULL || GetHeadOfList (GrantQueue2) != NULL || GetHeadOfList (GrantQueue3) != NULL || LOCK_NOTIF_ONLY (GetHeadOfList (NotificationQueue) != NULL ||) foundIteratorMarker'. This error may be timing-related. If the error persists after rerunning the statement, use DBCC CHECKDB to check the database for structural integrity, or restart the server to ensure in-memory data structures are not corrupted.
This problem may also occur after you add more processors to a server that is running SQL Server 2005. This problem is known to occur on servers in which the number of logical CPUs is 9, 17, 18, 19, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, or 39.
