SQL AlwaysOn Availability Groups Bug

When you’re using SQL AlwaysOn Availability Groups pay attention when applying the following patches:

  • SQL 2012 SP2 CU3
  • SQL 2012 SP2 CU4
  • SQL 2014 CU5

The Availability Group may stop synchronizing due to blocking between user queries and a system session. The fix is to disable automatic failover if it is activated, restart the SQL Server instance that is acting as Primary of the availability groups and re-enable automatic failover if it was activated.

A fix will be provided in time and is expected early February.
