The MARS TDS header contained errors - ASP.NET Core + EF Core 2.1.4 + Azure SQL Server

3

I have an ASP.NET Core app [Microsoft.AspNetCore.App 2.1.4] with EF Core 2.1.4 [DbContext pooling enabled] and data stored on an Azure SQL database.

Occasinaly [once in 1-2 days] I get unrecoverable error stating System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException (0x80131904): The incoming tabular data stream (TDS) protocol stream is incorrect. The MARS TDS header contained errors.

Once I restart the app, everything resumes working until it happens again.

Probably import to note is that I don't have MultipleActiveResultSets enabled in my connection string at all, which makes the issue even more strange.

Has anyone else noticed something similar? Are there any ways I can trace the problem?

Stack trace:
