KB4540385 - FIX: DAX query causes server to have exceptions in TBB heap and crash in Windows heap in SQL Server 2016 and 2017


Assume that you run a Data Analysis Expressions (DAX) query in Microsoft SQL Server 2016 or 2017. If the SQL Server Analysis Services MemoryHeapType property is set to 6 or -1, you notice that an exception is generated after you wait for some time. If the server uses Windows heap, you also may notice that the same query crashes the service immediately.
