Where did you get the error message? I suspect the error message was mixed
with something unrelated. The normal error message from SQL Server should
be something like the following instead (without the string of "on thread |
communication buffer resources"):
Transaction (Process ID 55) was deadlocked with another process and has
been chosen as the deadlock victim. Rerun the transaction.
The select statement will also require locks, meanwhile the connection
might be in a transaction and had already held some locks acquired by
You can start the troubleshooting with enabling the traceflag 1204 to get
more information about the deadlock chain (which table, what type of locks
etc.) and you might also need SQL Profiler trace to find out the
application logic causing the deadlock (e.g. find out what is the "previous
operations" as mentioned above).
