Consider the following scenario:

  • You perform a bulk copy operation in SQL Server.

  • The operation triggers a call to a common language runtime (CLR) function.

  • The CLR function executes a Transact-SQL statement that contains a TRY…CATCH construct.

In this scenario, SQL Server crashes and generates an access violation. Additionally, a dump file is generated in the SQL Server error log.


This issue is fixed in the following cumulative updates of SQL Server:

Cumulative Update 2 for SQL Server 2016 SP1

Cumulative Update 4 for SQL Server 2016

Cumulative Update 5 for SQL Server 2012 Service Pack 3


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