Consequences of Error 8962 in SQL Server 2000 and steps to perform SQL Recovery

MS SQL Server has been a cynosure of every database user because of its streamlined installation, high performance, and security features. You can easily reduce the size of your database using its highly advanced, transparent compressions algorithms. It also enables data encryption without having the need to change or modify programs. A range of built-in data mining, disk partitioning, and data management tools make data storage and retrieval a breeze for the end user. Despite these benefits, SQL databases are subject to corruption. Corruption may occur due to several reasons, such as virus infection, application errors, operating system malfunction, etc. Due to this, all our vital database objects become inaccessible. To overcome this problem, you need to go for SQL recovery through a reliable third-party utility.   

For instance, while using an SQL Server 2000 database, you may come across the following error message:

“Table error: The text, ntext, or image node at page P_ID, slot S_ID, text ID TEXT_ID has incorrect node type NODE_TYPE.”


The above error occurred because a database page contains a text node having invalid or incorrect type. This usually happens when there is corruption in the database.

This might also result in complete database inaccessibility. A recent/updated backup would help you restore all your lost or inaccessible data. However, if the backup is unavailable, follow the below mentioned resolution steps.


The following steps may help you resolve the issue-
  • You need to check the error logs to get information about any hardware related issues. If there is a hardware malfunction, run hardware diagnostics or try replacing the damaged hardware component.  
  • Use DBCC CHECKDB to fix logical database corruption.

If the problem still persists, you should take help of competent SQL database recovery software. These third-party tools use various safe and comprehensive techniques to repair corrupt SQL databases and retrieve almost every piece of valuable information from your corrupt database.
