Is anyone aware of any issues with service packs that cause issues with the sysmessages table?
We have recently patched SQL Server 2008 R2 with SP2 and are now seeing the following errors being reported in the SQL Error Log at regular intervals: Error: 18058, Severity: 17, State: 0. Failed to load format string for error 362, lahguage id 1033. Operating System error: 317(failed to retrieve text for this error. Reason 15105). Check that the resource file matches SQL Server executable, and resource file in localized directory matches the file under English directory. Also check memory usage. It is possible that this issue has been dormant for some time and existed prior to the patching exercise, however I have not been able to confirm this. Clearly some event is occurring and SQL is trying to obtain the description of the error. The same issue also exists on three other servers which have also been patched recently. I have examined the Bootstrap log files on all servers and all report that the patching was successful. If I run the following SQL on the servers I also get the same error which suggests an issue with the sysmessages table. select * from sysmessages; Any guidance/help on this will be gratefully received.
