Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1 (SP1), Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 2 (SP2), Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 or Microsoft SQL Server 2012 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security updates that were included with the previous SQL Server 2008 SP1, SQL Server 2008 SP2, SQL Server 2008 R2 or SQL Server 2012 update release.

Symptoms

When you use a backup statement to try to back up a database in Microsoft SQL Server 2008, in Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 or in Microsoft SQL Server 2012, the operation fails if the following conditions are true:
  • You have enabled change tracking on the database.
  • The database has been recovered at least one time after change tracking was enabled.

Additionally, the following error is logged in the SQL Server error log:
<Date><Time> <spid> Error: 2601, Severity: 14, State: 1.
<Date><Time> <spid> Cannot insert duplicate key row in object 'sys.syscommittab' with unique index '<Index Name>'.
<Date><Time> <spid> Error: 3999, Severity: 17, State: 1.
<Date><Time> <spid> Failed to flush the commit table to disk in dbid <Database ID> due to error 2601. Check the errorlog for more information.
Notes
  • This issue might occur when you follow these steps to recover the database:
    1. You restart the SQL Server service.
    2. You restore the database from a backup file.
  • The error might also occur when a checkpoint operation is performed on the database.
