KB3081020 - FIX: Automatic failover and service outage occur on availability groups in SQL Server 2014


You use the AlwaysOn availability groups feature in Microsoft SQL Server 2014. When a stalled dispatcher system dump occurs, an automatic failover might occur on the availability groups if the AlwaysOn feature is configured to do this. This failover is expected. However, the failover could cause a brief service outage.


This problem was first fixed in the following cumulative update for SQL Server 2014:
