Once in awhile, checking SQL Integrity Check logs, I get this error.

Re-saving the job usually fixes it.  Or deleting it and re-adding it fixes it as well.

Anyone know why this is?

Not knowing what SQL version/edition/service pack are you using it makes it a bit more dificult to tie it to a exact match however - did you checked this article allready?

Thats SQL 2000.

I'm sorry this happens on both 2008 and 2008 r2 SQL on both Windows 2008 and 2008 r2.  Both having the latest service packs.

"Once in awhile, checking SQL Integrity Check logs, I get this error."


Can you post the actual error you are getting?

Did you checked SQL Logs and Event Viewer to see if there are any errors? What about SQL Agent Log and job history? Do they report anything unusual?

It may be that a large record set or some cartesian set from a poorly written query is causing it. Regardles please see details about mem config as recommended by Microsoft at link below:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms177455.aspx

“For 64bit systems, the virtual address space limitation is not an issue. However, if an application wants to "lock its memory" or avoid its working set from being trimmed, then it can achieve this by using the AWE APIs. Again, in order to use these APIs, you must have the 'lock pages in memory' privilege set. This is why for 64bit systems, you don't need to set the 'awe enabled' option to 1 (it is actually ignored on 64bit systems).”
We don’t enable AWE but lock pages in memory MUST be set for the account running SQL Server service in order to be able to use the extended above standard 4kb pages. I think that should clear the error message from SQL log and please read http://blogs.msdn.com/b/psssql/archive/2009/06/05/sql-server-and-large-pages-explained.aspx for more info.
