Error 4502: View or function XXX has more column names specified than columns defined

Due to an unfortunate incident, an SQL Update which was in progress got interrupted, and as a result, one of my views in my master database is a bit unhappy.  When I start my SQL Server up from the command line I get this error:

Error: 4502, Severity: 16, State: 1.
View or function 'sys.dm_os_sys_info' has more column names specified than columns defined.

I know there is a system stored procedure known as sp_refreshview, but when I run it like this:

EXECUTE sp_refreshview 'sys.dm_os_sys_info'

Open in new window


I get the error:

Msg 15165, Level 16, State 1, Procedure sp_refreshsqlmodule_internal, Line 55
Could not find object 'sys.dm_os_sys_info' or you do not have permission.

I am presently running my SQL Server using the T902 switch, so that the script "sqlagent100_msdb_upgrade.sql" does not run and prevent the database from coming online.  I need to fix the abovementioned error prior to re-running this script.

Can anybody suggest a fix that I can apply to overcome the error

It seems that your table columns have been changed but you have not updated those in sys.dm_os_sys_info view

Error clearly says that whatever columns you have in this view, some of them are not available.

Ended up removing the SQL Instance and reinstalling.
