Rahman Agoro, the frontline SQL DBA

Just another WordPress.com weblog

Error: 17053, Severity: 16, State: 1 what does it mean ?

Posted by rahmanagoro on October 25, 2012

E:\DATA\Database.ndf: Operating system error 112(failed to retrieve text for this error. Reason: 15100) encountered.

I have seen this error message on one of our production systems, and wondering what the issue is. This error is being caused by the fact that one is trying to expand the size of the ndf file, and there just isn’t enough disk space on the actual drive or mount point.

To recreate the problem in SQL 2008, create an existing database. And then expand the size of one of the files to exceed the free available capacity on the server.
