Transient database snapshot has been marked suspect.

Applies to: Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 or later.

Problem Description.

The following error appeared while running a routinary DBCC CHECKDB on a database:

Msg 5269, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Check terminated. The transient database snapshot for database 'DatabaseName' (database ID 7) has been marked suspect due to an IO operation failure. Refer to the SQL Server error log for details.
Msg 0, Level 20, State 0, Line 0
A severe error occurred on the current command. The results, if any, should be discarded.


This error appeared because the database was located on a drive running out of space due to unexpected grow of a table on another database.


Once I recovered lost space on the drive I was able to run successfully the DBCC CHECKDB command.
