Assume that you create a local stored procedure that calls a remote stored procedure on a linked server through an EXECUTE statement in SQL Server 2019. When one of the remote stored procedure parameter values is a system variable (@@servername, @@servicename,...) like in the following example:

create procedure test



    execute [myLinkedServer].[myDB].dbo.myproc @@Servername


An access violation may occur. Additionally, you may receive an error message that resembles the following:

Msg 596, Level 21, State 1, Line LineNumber

Cannot continue the execution because the session is in the kill state.

Msg 0, Level 20, State 0, Line LineNumber

A severe error occurred on the current command. The results, if any, should be discarded.


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