Message Text

A previous transaction that the current transaction took a dependency on has aborted, and the current transaction can no longer commit.

The transaction encountered a dependency failure, and is now doomed.

This error can also be caused by too many dependent transactions. Any write transaction can have a limited number of dependent transactions. For example, this error can occur if too many read transactions try to take a dependency on the update transaction.

Don't do any work on the transaction. Call ROLLBACK TRAN to roll back the transaction. For more information, see In-Memory OLTP (In-Memory Optimization).
