Hi All,


Some background

Esri Server

Windows 2012 R2 Standard SP1


SQL Server Native Client 2008 R2 10.50.4000.0 (SP2)


SQL Server Database

Windows 2008 R2 Standard SP2

SQL Server 2008 R2 10.50.4000.0 (SP2)

Multiple instance including





E.g. <server>\DEVELOPMENT or <server>,port to connect


I've attempted to create a geodatabase on this multi instance SQL Server and failed,

I spun up a single instance SQL server on a VM and can successfully create a geodatabase.


The error I get is as follows when it attempts to create the GDB_ITEM table at the definition column which is the first XML datatype.


[Tue Apr 14 09:30:41 2015] Successfully created GDB_Tables_Last_Modified table...

[Tue Apr 14 09:30:41 2015] Error creating  GDB_Items table...

, Error = -511

,EXT_Error = 24000

,EXT_ERROR1 = [Microsoft][SQL Server Native Client 10.0]Invalid cursor state



Has anyone else come across this issue?  Did you manage to get passed the error?

Any tips, tricks, that I can use to dig deeper into this issue?
