This article describes the following about this hotfix release:
  • The issues that are fixed by this hotfix package
  • The prerequisites for installing the hotfix package
  • Information about whether you must restart the computer after you install the hotfix package
  • Information about whether the hotfix package is replaced by any other hotfix package
  • Information about whether you must make any registry changes
  • The files that are contained in the hotfix package


In SQL Server 2005, you perform a transaction log backup operation and one of the following data backup operations in parallel:
  • A full database backup operation
  • A differential database backup operation
  • A file backup operation
When you do this, you receive the following error message:
Error: 3633, Severity: 16, State: 1.
The operating system returned the error '32(The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.)' while attempting 'CreateFile' on 'C:\MSSQL\FTDATA\my_fulltextindex\SQL.HDR' at 'fulltext.cpp'(529).
This problem occurs if the following conditions are true:
  • Full-text indexing is enabled on the database on which you perform the data backup operation.
  • The transaction log backup operation starts slightly before the data backup operation.


In SQL Server 2005, full-text catalogs are also backed up by the backup operation. When a transaction log backup process starts, the process obtains an exclusive lock on the full-text catalog to read the header information. During this time, if another data backup process starts on the same database, the data backup operation fails, and you receive the error message that is mentioned in the "Symptoms" section. Only one backup process can access the header information in the full-text catalog.

This problem does not occur if the data backup operation starts slightly before the transaction log backup.
