SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario. In Microsoft SQL Server 2005, you enable the lazy schema validation option for any linked server. Additionally, you run a distributed partitioned view query. In this scenario, an access violation may occur. An error message that resembles the following may be logged in the SQL Server error log:
Exception Address = 016FAE18 Module(sqlservr+006FAE18)
Exception Code = c0000005 EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION
Access Violation occurred reading address 00000018
This problem may occur when some information about the remote session is not correctly cached and is not correctly cleared.
