Magic string "sp_replwritetovarbin" causes a transport-level error

  • Does anybody know why existence of string sp_replwritetovarbin in the statement causes a transport-level error?

    Any of the statement below completes with error:

    Msg 64, Level 20, State 0, Line 0

    A transport-level error has occurred when receiving results from the server. (provider: TCP Provider, error: 0 - The specified network name is no longer available.)

    select 'sp_replwritetovarbin'
    go

    select 'Ok' -- sp_replwritetovarbin
    go

    select 'Ok'
    /*
    sp_replwritetovarbin
    */
    go

    create table test ( name nvarchar(128) );
    insert test values ('sp_replwritetovarbin');
    drop table test;
    go

    create table test ( name nvarchar(128) );
    insert test values ('spreplwritetovarbin'); -- sp_replwritetovarbin
    drop table test;
    go

    create table test ( name nvarchar(128) );
    insert test values ('spreplwritetovarbin');
    /*
    sp_replwritetovarbin
    */
    drop table test;
    go

  • What version of SQL Server (@@VERSION)?

    Using SSMS? Or another client?

    Does it work using #test rather than test?

    Are you in master or another database? Do other queries to same database work?

    It works for me on SQL Server 2017 (RTM-CU22-GDR) (KB4583457) - 14.0.3370.1 (X64)  using test or #test.

  • What version of SQL Server (@@VERSION)? ..., 2017, 2019

    Using SSMS? Or another client? SSMS

    Does it work using #test rather than test? NO

    Are you in master or another database? Do other queries to same database work? any database

    It works when I execute statements locally on the server. But don't work when I connected remotely WFH and run them on my desktop using SSMS. It can be VPN or Firewall reaction on the string.  Can anybody test and confirm?

     

     

  • SSMS 18.5

    Works fine for me on

    14.0.2037 (RTM-GDR)

    15.0.2080.9 (RTM-GDR)
