If you are using SQL Server 2019 as a DBMS and you do not have cumulative patch CU12 or later, you have to perform the following after installing Kaspersky Security Center:

  1. Connect to SQL Server using SQL Management Studio.
  2. Run the following commands (if you chose a different name for the database, use that name instead of KAV):

    USE KAV

    GO

    ALTER DATABASE SCOPED CONFIGURATION SET TSQL_SCALAR_UDF_INLINING = OFF

    GO

  3. Restart the SQL Server 2019 service.

Otherwise, using SQL Server 2019 may result in errors, such as "There is insufficient system memory in resource pool 'internal' to run this query."
