SQL Server Error Messages - Errors 9001 to 9500

A message number uniquely identifies each error message and the error message text describes the problem.  The error message text often includes placeholders for information (such as object names) to be inserted in the error message when it is displayed.  Unfortunately, the error message text does not tell you how to solve or work around the problem.  In this series of Error Messages list, we will try to provide you with ways on how to overcome or work around certain error messages.

Some error messages are self-explanatory and can easily be fixed, such as "Invalid object name".  Others are harder to fix or work around, especially by those who are new to SQL Server.  It is the intent of this page and succeeding pages (to come) to assist you in addressing or working around SQL Server error messages.

Error Severity Description
9001 21  The log for database '<Database Name>' is not available.
9002 17 The log file for database '<Database Name>' is full. Back up the transaction log for the database to free up some log space.
9003 20 The LSN <LSN Number> passed to log scan in database '<Database Name>' is invalid.
9004 21 An error occurred while processing the log for database '<Database Name>'.
9005 16 Either start LSN or end LSN specified in OpenRowset(DBLog, ...) is invalid.
9006 10 Cannot shrink log file <Log File Name> (%s) because total number of logical log files cannot be fewer than %d.
9007 10 Cannot shrink log file <Log File Name> (%s) because requested size (%dKB) is larger than the start of the last logical log file.
9008 10 Cannot shrink log file <Log File Name> (%s) because all logical log files are in use.
9009 10 Cannot shrink log file <Log File Name> (%s) because of minimum log space required.
9010 14 User does not have permission to query the virtual table, DBLog. Only members of the sysadmin fixed server role and the db_owner fixed database role have this permission.
9011 14 User does not have permission to query backup files with the virtual table DBLog. Only members of the sysadmin fixed server role has this permission.
9012 10 There have been %d misaligned log IOs which required falling back to synchronous IO. The current IO is on file %ls.
9013 10 The tail of the log for database %ls is being rewritten to match the new sector size of %d bytes. %d bytes at offset %I64d in file %ls will be written.
9014 21 An error occurred while processing the log for database '%ls'. The log block version %d is unsupported. This server supports log version %d to %d.
9015 24 The log record at LSN %S_LSN is corrupted.
9016 21 An error occurred while processing the log for database '%.*ls'. The log block could not be decrypted.
9017 10 Database %ls has more than %d virtual log files which is excessive. Too many virtual log files can cause long startup and backup times. Consider shrinking the log and using a different growth increment to reduce the number of virtual log files.
9018 16 The log for database '%ls' does not allow user writes.
9019 21 The virtual log file sequence 0x%08x at offset 0x%016I64x bytes in file '%ls' is active and cannot be overwritten with sequence 0x%08x for database '%ls'.
9020 16 The log for database '%ls' failed to grow while shrink in progress. Please retry.
9021 16 Cannot accept virtual log file sequence 0x%08x for database '%ls' because file %d does not exist yet.
9022 14 The log can not be initialized because the log files are not fully formatted.
9023 16 The log for database '%ls' cannot be shrunk until all secondaries have moved past the point where the log was added.
9100 23 Possible index corruption detected. Run DBCC CHECKDB..
9101 16 auto statistics internal.
