Most of the MSSQL Database users have faced SQL Server Error 7929 and unable to find the solutions to resolve it. For those users, we come up with solutions to resolve it quickly. Therefore, follow this guide properly from top to end.
Let us begin to know about Database Error 7929 in detail-
Sometimes in the SQL Server database, users are unable to access some or all of the tables. Now, if you run DBCC CHECKDB with and without TABLOCK to know the reason, you will find SQL error 7929. In fact, the message is as follows:
Msg 7929, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Check statement aborted. Database contains deferred transactions.
Note: The option DBCC CHECKDB TABLOCK helps to capture a database lock that helps prevent user access to the database.
This error occurs due to deferred transactions that can lead to database corruption also.
Now a question arises in your mind about deferred transactions.
Deferred Transactions- A deferred transaction is a neutral transaction that has not been carried out correctly and has not performed the roll-forward process. Due to a high number of transactions, the deferred transaction happens in the program SQL server, while a startup error occurs in other SQL server versions. This is due to an input-output error that prevents the transaction from reading a page.
There are some manual ways to fix Database Error 7929 as follows:
When the transaction causing the deferred state is moved out, the SQL Server database error 7929 will get fixed. Without any Input / Output Error (I / O), this database must start cleanly.
Steps to solve it:
RESTORE DATABASE database_name FILEGROUP=
Use the following command to set the database status in emergency mode
The repair command manages damaged pages and allows the retrieval of missing records in the Microsoft SQL Server and a stable state to be reached. But some critical data loss can result that you can’t recover it.
This is a major disadvantage using this manual way, but don’t worry we have another best solution for you. Use SQL Database Recovery utility to fix data loss which automatically fixes SQL Database Error 7929 issue. So this option is better than the manual approach as there is no data loss and also no technical knowledge is required to run the utility.
We have discussed all about SQL Server Error 7929 in detail with their reasons for the occurrence.
