Hi all,  another chanlanging one.

Ive got so much stuff running that I got this error.    Its the first time ive ever seen this,  whilst I totally understand what it is and why it has occured, the question is..... Does anyone know of a way that I can increase this particular timeout interval, or is this hard coded in the bowels of SQL Sever?


Server: Msg 8645, Level 17, State 1, Line 1
A time out occurred while waiting for memory resources to execute the query. Rerun the query.


Cheers

Hi,

Load up enterprise manager, right click your server and select properties. now select the connections tab and you will see a query time out setting in seconds. if you set it to zero it make the query time unlimited.

Hope it helps

No, that is connection timeout and command timeout settings.  both of them are set as unlimited.    This is a different issue at a much lower level.  Its a memory Allocation timeout.
