Deprecated feature Database compatibility level 110 should have a unique external feature ID in Microsoft SQL Server 2014. However, another deprecated feature sp_control_dbmasterkey_password has the same external feature ID.


The issue occurs because external feature ID "274" is already assigned to another deprecated feature that is the stored procedure sp_control_dbmasterkey_password. Therefore, there are two features assigned to the same ID "274." This fix resolves the duplicated ID number by reassigning Database compatibility level 110 to a new feature ID number "275" for uniqueness.

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
