KB4043624 - FIX: Change tracking manual cleanup fails with table non-existence error in SQL Server

Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:

  • You create a schema and a table in the schema in Microsoft SQL Server.

  • You enable change tracking for that table.

  • You perform manual cleanup by using the sp_flush_CT_internal_table_on_demand command.

In this scenario, the cleanup may fail with an error that states that the table could not be found.

This error occurs because the sp_flush_CT_internal_table_on_demand command does not consider tables with different schemas, such as the tables that are not owned by dbo.
