Why SQL Server Error 605 Occurs?

If we study this error then we find two types of severity in this error. These are:

Severity 21: In Severity 12, the database page or the SQL server creates the problem while learning the actual value of expected allocation.

Severity 12: In Severity 12, the problem occurs when the server query uses the read uncommitted isolation level or NOLOCK query hint.

SQL Error 605 appears when a user logs into multiple systems, or a system other than Administrator access. The error message appears in RED color.

In case, you’ll get a severity 21, the previous session of the user terminated. Also, your error is registered in the SQL error log and on the Windows Application Event Log as Event ID 605. Hence this the possible reason that you will get an error 605.

Otherwise, in case of severity 12, in this situation, the query flops and starts utilizing read uncommitted isolation level.

Methods to Resolve error 605 in SQL Server

Firstly, it is a request to all of you that you have taken the backups of your data to neglect situations like data loss or data corruption.

When You Have Severity level 21

Firstly, you will have the correct information regarding your data file and page number given in the error message. After that, use the DBCC PAGE command:

dbcc traceon(3604)

dbcc page(‘MyDatabaseName’,1, 224,3)

dbcc traceoff(3604)


NOTE: You are independent to use any from the 0,1,2,3 choices as your last parameter (bold 3) of the DBCC PAGE command. You have two different commands & options to follow:


  1. From a complete Database backup, restore your page.
  2. Otherwise, Try these DBCC commands.

If we take experts’ opinions, then they recommend taking the help of the 1st method. But if you don’t have a copy of your backup data, then you move to the second option. Given below are some commands follow then to restore a page from the last database backup:



PAGE = ‘1:224’

FROM DISK = ‘D:\MyDatabaseName.bak’



Follow the alternate option, if you don’t have the required backup. The alternate option to use is the DBCC CHECKDB command.


When the user doesn’t have its backup copy then they are required to verify their severity level i.e. 21 or 12.




Execute the above command to use the REPAIR_REBUILD.

Note: If there is a repair level REPAIR_ALLOW_DATA_LOSS, then this shows that you lose some of your data. Now, you have to follow the below commands:


    ALTER database MyDatabaseName SET MULTI_USER
    ALTER database MyDatabaseName SET MULTI_USER


When You Have Severity level 12
