Amy Harrison 1 Reputation point

We receive this error periodically when trying to run queries via automation using sqlcmd. The paging file is system managed, we have updated driver to latest version but still get this and memory allocation issues if any activity us taking place on the db. Sqlcmd: Error: Microsoft ODBC Driver 17 for SQL Server : Specified driver could not be loaded due to system error 1455: The paging file is too small for this operation to complete. (ODBC Driver 17 for SQL Server, C:\windows\system32\msodbcsql17.dll).

    Hi @Amy Harrison ,

    Which version of SQL Server do you used? Because there have memory limitation for different version of SQL Server, you can find the details form this link.

    When SQL Server is using memory dynamically, it queries the system periodically to determine the amount of free memory. Maintaining this free memory prevents the operating system (OS) from paging. Please find more details from this link.

    Best regards,
