DBCC CHECKDB failed with the following error: "There is insufficient system memory to run this query"
Posted on 2011-09-16
I'm a newbie to SQL Server and have a maintenance plan that failed with this error. It is SQL Server 2005.
Failed:(-1073548784) Executing the query "DBCC CHECKDB WITH NO_INFOMSGS
" failed with the following error: "There is insufficient system memory to run this query.
Check terminated. A failure was detected while collecting facts. Possibly tempdb out of space or a system table is inconsistent. Check previous errors.". Possible failure reasons: Problems with the query, "ResultSet" property not set correctly, parameters not set correctly, or connection not established correctly.
I found more messages in the log file like these errors:
Error 701, Severity: 17, State: 123
Error 17053, Severity: 16, State: 1
Error 17312, Severity: 16, State: 1
Error 17300, Severity: 16, State: 1
DBCC CHECKDB (mssqlsystemresource) WITH no_infomsgs executed by NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM terminated abnormally due to error state 5.
It looks like we have plenty of free space out on the OS and seems to have enough memory. What could be causing this and how do I "fix it"?
