If you create a Server Data Object (.sdo) file that is more than 250 MB by using Site Deployment Manager in Microsoft Content Management Server (MCMS), the file may be terminated abruptly with errors. The errors are logged in the application section of the Windows Event Viewer. These errors refer to an out-of-memory exception in SQL Server, but the errors may also indicate SQL Server client errors. The following error messages are examples of the type of errors that you may receive:
  • MCMS Site Deployment - Error occurred System.Data.SqlClient.SqlError: A severe error occurred on the current command. The results, if any, should be discarded.
  • MCMS Site Deployment - Error occurred. System.OutOfMemoryException: Exception of type System.OutOfMemoryException was thrown.
  • MCMS Site Deployment - Error occurred. System.Data.SqlClient.SqlError: General network error. Check your network documentation.


This problem occurs because the .sdo file requires heavy use of the SQL Server memory resources. This heavy use contributes to the SQL Server memory failure. The SQL Server memory failure leads to the MCMS error in Site Deployment Manager.
