SQL Server error messages

Symptoms

When you attempt to run a process or perform an operation, your Microsoft SQL Server may send various error messages during execution. All of these messages will start with the Server replied prefix.

For example: 

SQL Server replied: The server principal "DOMAIN\account" is not able to access the database "Alloy Navigator" under the current security context


SQL Server replied: Invalid column name 'FieldName'

SQL Server replied: Communication link failure

Cause

Some of these messages may or may not indicate serious issues and can be caused by a variety of reasons. Microsoft Support documentation provides troubleshooting information for common issues (connectivity, configuration, performance, etc.) at https://support.microsoft.com/.

For example:

  • The server principal "DOMAIN\account" is not able to access the database "Alloy Navigator" under the current security context — Your account does not have the database access.

  • Invalid column name 'UDF_Rank' — The UDF_Rank field was not found.

  • Communication link failure — There is a network failure between the application and the database server.
