I installed sql Mon 3.0 this weeken and now i am seeing a lot of the following error:

Error: 18002, Severity: 20, State: 1.
Exception happened when running extended stored procedure 'xp_readerrorlog' in the library 'xpstar90.dll'. SQL Server is terminating process 94. Exception type: Win32 exception; Exception code: 0xc0000005.

Is this an error introduced by sql mon 3 or is it something I need to adress?

    Hi Lars,

    C0000005 is an "access violation", meaning the extended stored procedure is trying to read or write memory that is outside the address space of SQL Server. It means that the SQL Server installation has come unglued. You can try reinstalling or removing/readding the extended stored procedure.

    Hi, thanks for the reply.

    Could you tell me which is the easiest way to reinstall the extended SP?

    SQL Server has a procedure "sp_addextendedproc" that you can use. So for starters you can sp_dropextendedproc and then sp_addextendedproc-it back in. As it's a system procedure, you may need to repair the installation though.
