The purpose of this KBA is to help SAP customers obtain a general idea of potential fixed situations in Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE) 16.0 SP02. Please be sure to read the Disclaimer below.

If the EBF/SP has been released, check the CR list and coverletter at the

Disclaimer: This document lists the targeted (not committed) release dates and the targeted fixed CR list for each release. Please be aware that the purpose of this posting is solely to provide you, our customers with estimated release dates and targeted CR lists. SAP does not commit to releasing on the specified dates or to including the CR fixes in the said release. While every effort will be made to meet the said targets, changes can occur at any time. It is also possible (although unlikely) that SAP may decide not to release an EBF/SP that was previously scheduled for release.

CR NumberDescription
73037 There is no convenient way to reclaim unneeded space from a database except to drop and recreate that database.
393424 The sp_monitor connection option may encounter an arithmetic overflow exception of any of the connections with active queries on the server has been established for a long period of time.
448907 Adds the PREPARE DATABASE command. This command is very similar to the QUIESCE DATABASE command, with the exception that it does not block write activity during the HOLD phase. The HOLD/RELEASE options can be used to execute a mirror split or snapshot on the database using a certified agent, to create a copy of a database on which transaction logs can be loaded.
464605 The "enable large pool for load" configuration parameter is added to configure the use of large buffer pools during the recovery phase for LOAD DATABASE and LOAD TRANSACTION commands execution. This configuration parameter will default to 0 if "enable functionality group" is set to 0, and to 1 if "enable functionality group" is set to 1.
480652 The paths for the cluster devices are not checked to insure they are not reused in the same input session when creating new cluster.
484059 Cluster failed to start after creation if interfaces path contains "#".
484953 Sybcluster show instance status does not show correct status if shutdown instance outside sybcluster immediately.
493317 When quorum device cannot be accessed, running 'show cluster status' will report an inexplicit error "The cluster entry did not contain any servers"
498501 Sybmigrate - unable to generate index ddl when user\db have same name
500347 Temporary files are not cleaned up after cluster creation.
542339 The command, 'diagnose instance', does not report any message if the interfaces file is missing the domain suffix of the machine name.
545716 Long Running Transaction against an SAP ASE server can prevent the log being truncated, causing risk of data unavailability for DMLs. Improve how this can be managed.
546891 Permissions on "sysslices" system table remain unchanged when "GRANT DEFAULT PERMISSIONS ON SYSTEM TABLES" or "REVOKE DEFAULT PERMISSIONS ON SYSTEM TABLES" SQL commands are executed.
548593 Updating a TEXT value into a proxy TEXT column using the value from a local TEXT column results in garbage being inserted.
565321 In parallel query mode, monProcessWorkerThread.ThreadsActive, monProcess.NumChildren, monSysWorkerThreads.PlansAltered and monProcessStatement.PlansAltered are always 0.
575996 Enable SELECT INTO at LEVEL 0 by extending the already present INSERT SELECT at LEVEL 0.
578515 sp_sysmon appl_and_login does not show the detail of activity by application name and login name.
590190 If a table is on an inner side of a join, the 'UsedCount' of the table could be incremented multiple times of 'OptSelectCount' of the table in monOpenObjectActivity table.
609692 When dumping and loading databases containing functional indexes between specific platforms, dropping indexes on the new server can fail with a syntax error message.
618245 UPDATE STATISTICS on a proxy table with a specified column may return error 12814 - "Failed to write information in SYSTABSTATS."
618451 The message "dbid < dbid > objid < objid > open failed" may be reported when running DBCC EXTENTZAP or EXTENTCHECK on a table that is missing entries in sysobjects.
625217 UPDATE STATISTICS command on a proxy table writes the wrong page count for a row having indid 0 or 1 into systabstats system table if the ASE page size is more than 2K.
636424 A new recommended corrective action has been added to sp_dbcc_help_fault for type_code 100004.
639813 Execution of stored procedure 'sp_renamedb' from read-only database results in a 3906 error, "Attempt to BEGIN TRANSACTION in database failed because database is READ ONLY." Message should reflect that "You must be in master in order to run stored procedure for read-only database."
643556 Cross platform transaction load is not supported, but it is allowed and it may result in Msg 695, Level 21 "An attempt was made to read logical page ' < pageid > ' for database ' < db_name > ' ... Wrong logical page '2433379939' was broughtinto cache"; Cross platform load in an archive database is also not supported but it is allowed and may result in Msg 15760 - "Invalid dump header when loading the database with ID ' < n > '.".
645898 In rare circumstances, after configuring a big data cache or a large stack size, SAP ASE might implicitly shut down following a JavaVM crash while executing a Java query. The message EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION or 'ExceptionCode: c0000005' will be reported in the SAP ASE error log.
648514 Error 1105 States 4, 5, and 7 may no longer mean what they are documented to mean in the ASE Troubleshooting Guide due to reuse of the values in new code.
652328 TEXT/IMAGE page chains are not deleted properly from sysattributes when REORG REBUILD is called on a table with TEXT and IMAGE data. This can result in reduction of unreserved/available space in the database.
653277 An UPDATE query running in a batch that includes a CREATE INDEX or UPDATE/DELETE STATISTICS or an UPDATE query running simultaneously with a workload that involves CREATE INDEX or UPDATE/DELETE STATISTICS may lead to data inconsistency.
656902 If a query contains a join between partitioned tables and one of the partitioned tables degenerates to a single partition through dynamic partition elimination and there is a CIS table in the query, then a SEGV could occur in the PartNodeInfo::collocatedSite() method.
664714 Increase the limit on the number of historical configuration files saved from 999 to 999999999.
664848 KBA 2011340. In rare circumstances, the message "current process infected with 11 (SIGSEGV)" in the module 'ind__get_sysindrow()' together with a stack trace which includes the modules 'getindexname()' and 'CgGenLava::CGConsScanOp()' may be reported in the SAP ASE error log. This may happen when a statement, using temporary user tables or tables created in the same batch or stored procedure and with indexes defined, is being compiled before execution.
665284 The message, "Current process infected with signal 11" followed by a stack trace that includes the module Partitions::initHintsForDegree() may be reported when a remote procedure is executed with the recompile option.
666239 The limit for cache partitioning has been extended from 128 to 256.
666597 New Feature Request ... add indicator to monCachedProcedures to show active entries
668638 The sp_opt_querystats stored procedure reports error number 17077 indicating that the optimizer diagnostic results were incomplete and does not generate any output.
670273 In some circumstances, the Operations value in the monOpenObjectActivity MDA table does not reflect the actual number of table accesses.
672255 In some circumstance, the CPU usage of ASE might increase to near 100% after turning on the “plan text pipe active” option.
672606 In some cases the output from the sp_opt_querystats stored procedure would be formatted incorrectly due to lines being broken in the middle of words or due to missing letters or characters.
674535 Products: ASE 15.5 ESD#3 SQL Advantange 12.5.3 EBF 12338 DBISQL version 11.01, build 2430 Problem Description: Customer reports that DBISQL does not report as much detailed message compared with SQL Advantage. Since SQL Advantage is deprecated customer is requesting FR to be implemented:
674632 Enhance index scan perforamce on little-endian platforms if the index includes large mount of duplicated keys.
675791 Enhance sp_rename stored procedure to rename data and index partitions.
676122 ASE does not respond and appears to hang when invalid packets are sent to it.
678527 KBA 2016211. In some long running ASE servers, an 8203 error - "Expected to find the descriptor for object < objid > in database < db_num > in < state > state." might be raised with crt_main in the stack trace while creating a temporary table. There will be an information message "INFO: Total Object Ids in temporary database generated: < total id count > , LWPs generated: < LWP id count > " printed for every 100 million object ids generated
680899 sybcluster should have a way to back off incomplete removal or alternately the CR 680891 should provide complete instructions for recovery from errors during "drop instance".
682354 Allows stored procedures which reference temp tables created outside the procedure to not require recompilation for every execution. This was previously supported by trace flag 299.
682486 Add a new fake table in 'master', named 'syslogsdetail'. This is used to serve up the log records details, only metadata and not including user data, as a result set.
683127 DDL is now replicated within user stored procedures.
683762 On Windows platforms, preupgrade eligibility test fails when using sysconfig.exe to upgrade ASE.
683882 Excessive I/O to quorum devices is observed when SCC is up and cluster is down.
684459 On AIX platform, the mapping of addresses to function names in SAP ASE stack traces has been improved. This will provide a superior mapping when the address is in a shared library.
687372 A 697 error, "An attempt was made to fetch logical page < pagenum > for database < dbname > ....", during transaction rollback, if the transaction is doing some DMLs to upgrade row lock to table lock.
689004 Setting the configuration parameter 'send doneinproc tokens' to zero, can cause the global variable @@rowcount to report an incorrect value inside a stored procedure or trigger.
691074 sybmigrate: initial login screen doesn't see servers named with "query"
691582 In rare cases, a DUMP TRAN command is incorrectly allowed following a DUMP DATABASE command during which a partially-logged command like SELECT INTO was active that also commits some time towards the end of the DUMP DATABASE command. The partially logged operation will be lost when the database dump and transaction log are loaded.
692237 Starting the Backup Server with -D4096 will suppress messages "Attempting DSync I/O for device ' < value > '." from being reported in the Backup Server error log during the execution of a DUMP DATABASE command.
692359 Performance Enhancements to BCM Latching without Cache spinlock in addition to Buffer ELC changes for ASE Scaleup.

693982 alter table fails to update status2 in syscolumns when column being modified to add/drop a default value
694495 The command DBCC SETTRUNC('ltm', 'end') extends the transaction log with one page before setting the Secondary Truncation Point to the new end of the log so as to avoid unwanted data replication.
694912 Exception is raised from localize command in sybcluster if ASE-15_0/locales contains unnecessary files/dirs.
697129 Supporting Lock Remastering for SAP ASE Cluster Edition. When the master assignment is set to affinity mode, the masters will gradually get re-allocated to the instances that initiates the lock convert requests, if “enable lock remastering” is set to 1(ON) in the configuration file. By default, “enable lock remastering” is set to 0 (OFF). It is not recommended to set “enable lock remastering” to 1 (ON) for badly partitioned cases.
700227 Reduce additional logging done on page compressed DMLs for replication support, trigger support, and online utilities support.
701608 Signal 11 in LeSarg::mapSarg is reported due to incorrect classification of Transitive Closure predicates, at optimization time.
701705 New monitors have been added to collect each engine resource's Engine Local Caches (ELC) performance.
702725 In circumstances whereby the select list of an INSERT SELECT with ORDER BY does not include the 'order by' columns, it is possible that the optimizer will favor a non-matching index scan using an index with the order by column(s) as opposed to a more efficient plan using a matching index scan for one or more of the filter predicates. A new optcriteria cr702725 has been introduced for this change. Use "set cr702725 1" to turn on the change and "set cr702725 0" to turn it off.
702907 In specific circumstances it is possible to receive a 2601 error on execution of a stored procedure. The issue is much more likely to happen with 'deferred name resolution' enabled. This can happen when a stored procedure has been initially created, then for the 'first' execution, multiple concurrent connections all run the procedure at the 'same'time. If running with 'deferred name resolution' enabled at create procedure time, the error is much more likely to occur. It could also happen in circumstances where the query tree needs to be recreated from text as in after the ASE is upgraded.
703134 ASE provides inaccurate estimation for 'kernel resource memory' configuration parameter.
703607 Backup Server is enhanced to provide Multithread support needed for Tivoli Storage Manager options such as LAN-FREE. This support is off by default. It can be turned on by using the new –D8192 option during Backup Server startup. For example: ${BACKUPSERVER} -SSYB_BACKUP -I$SYBASE/interfaces -M${SYBMULTBUF} -D8192&
704671 While executing large amount of dynamically prepared statements we could find DBT_SPIN as still contentious.
704744 Log an informational message in the error log when memory allocation with Linux 'hugepages' succeeds. Add a configuration option 'enable HugePages' to control allocation as follows, with HugePages if available else regular pages, only with HugePages and fail if not available, only with Regular Pages.
704899 Add new configuration option 'enable HugePages' for Linux to control whether to boot ASE with HugePages and 'enable ISM' for Solaris to control whether to boot ASE with ISM
705198 Generating ddl for proxy tables includes create index ddl for the proxy table
705390 number of checkpoint tasks has to be set to default or 1 before upgrade, or it will fail, and require manually editing the config file before restarting the upgrade process. This should be handled in the preupgrade.
705516 Feature request to improve sp_configure to perform kernel resource memory consistancy checks.
706543 sybmigrate and DDLGen fail when there is "&" in the object name
708143 asehostname() can return null or truncated values when the hostname is greater than 30 characters.
708830 sp_dump_history returns error 17152, version missing or invalid, when dump history file does not exist.
709060 When creating a cluster or adding an instance, sybcluster cannot detect invalid device name immediately after it is entered.
709090 Release DBISQL 16 for ASE.
709474 A new SpinlockSlotID column has been added to the monSpinlockActivity MDA table. This column provides a unique identifier for each spinlock in the current ASE server. This ID is not persistent across servers or restarts of the server.
709754 It is possible for a spid to terminate and a stack trace to appear in the SAP ASE error log containing the functions memset and bi__xml_query/bi_xmlextract. This can happen under heavy usage when the session heap memory pool has become starved.
710057 The timing and IO metrics in monCachedStatement for running queries were unchanged until the query completed. Four new columns have been added to provide intermediate updates. The new columns are called TotalLIO, TotalPIO, TotalCPUTime and TotalElapsedTime.
710300 Deploy plugin raises an error but reports that it succeed
711106 OPTDIAG and sp_showoptstats has been enhanced to support Precomputed Resultsets.
711248 Error 14575, "CREATE TABLE WITH COMPRESSION is not supported for in-memory database", followed by error 11050, "Adaptive Server cannot process this ALTER TABLE statement due to one or more preceding errors. If there are no preceding errors, please contact Sybase Technical Support.", and error 11934, "REORG REBUILD of table 'tabname' failed due to an internal error. Please contact SYBASE Technical Support", may be reported when running 'reorg rebuild' command on table which has data or LOB compressedion defined after user is bind to temporary in-memory database.
711328 Using sybcluster to add an instance in interactive mode failed.
711928 sp_sysmon would report a 265 error, "Insufficient result space for explicit conversion of SMALLINT value '100' to a VARCHAR field" if ASE is configured with more than 100 engines.
712125 If there are more than 32 columns used in an UPDATE STATISTICS command, either explicitly or implicitly through the auto_temptable_stats feature, then there is a possibility of a stacktrace.
712461 If multi-column syntax is used with update statistics tabname (colname1, colname2,...) using out_of_range {on | off | default }, then the assignment of out_of_range behavior may not be associated with the correct columns.
712480 The LAVA based index creation is enhanced to support the case where the index leading columns are duplicated.
712897 sp_bindcache information is missing from DDLGen output.
712957 sybcluster will fail to connect to the cluster if duplicated agents are specified.
712970 Enhancement is made to sp_placeobject system procedure to support partitions.
712996 sp_showoptstats output has been changed for the < statsOutRan > tag to have a value of "on" if the "using out_of_range on" phrase was used in update statistics, and "off" if the "using out_of_range off" phrase was used, and will not be printed if "default" is in effect. Previously "true" was printed when "on" or "off" was used.
713074 Monitor server has been retired since 15.7 GA but sybcluster still contained the operations for configuring monitor server. These operation options have now been removed.
713189 If the Cluster Editions is configured with both backup or xp servers, then adding an instance with an xml input file may fail.
713464 Error 1503 may occur when index is created with LAVA based index creation if the number of distict index value is not greater than CONSUMERS number.
713572 A 12319 error followed by a stack trace that includes the modules LeMergeStmtOp::_LeOpClose() and dol_def_update() may be reported when a MERGE statement is using cloned plans.
713638 LIKE predicate optimizer estimations may be incorrect when UTF-8 is used. Optcriteria cr713638 is added to correct this issue.
714330 Add functionality to the LOAD ... WITH LISTONLY=CREATE_SQL command to include the various database options (applied with sp_dboption) and attributes (applied with CREATE and ALTER DATABASE) of the source database, in the generated SQL.
714773 In a multi-engine ASE running on the Unix platform, the tracefile for the spid (created using 'set tracefile < path > for < spid > ') is truncated in pre 15.7, while the tracefile is not populated post 15.7 in process kernel mode, when the spid being traced is affiniated to an engine other than the one which created the tracefile initially (This can happen if the engine that created the tracefile is offline).
715203 DBCC CHECKSTORAGE does not detect LOB compression flag inconsistencies in the TIPSA. With DBCC CHECKTABLE and DBCC CHECKDB these types of inconsistencies were already being reported with message 15960.
715228 Wrong result could happen when referencing a non-correlated scalar aggregate view at the inner side of an OUTER JOIN.
715312 Use of online utilities like 'reorg rebuild with online' might lead to incorrect used/unused counts in the OAM for the table. This is reflected by a later 'dbcc checkalloc' on the table reporting error messages 7949 and 7940.
716262 On HPIA64 platforms, ASE may report error 16747, "The 'enable hp posix async i/o' configuration option is only available on the HPUX platform. This option is not valid on the current platform." if 'number of disk tasks' is set as larger than 1 when 'enable hp posix async i/o' is enabled.
716645 During an UPDATE command on a table that has in-row LOB columns defined, ASE may move some of these columns from in-row to off-row or vice-versa if the size of a datarow exceeds configured limits. When such a table has a datarow with an off-row LOB column that is not explicitly updated, ASE may not log this column data correctly. This will result in replication failing if this column is marked as always_replicate.
716957 In rare circumstances, a 614 error, "Adaptive Server accessed a row that has an illegal length of < value > while in data base < database > " may be reported when running DBCC FIX_TEXT on a data-only-locked table.
717026 KBA 2093231. Improve spinlock efficiency on Solaris SPARC platform.
718253 Utilities like haisql, HAase agent or MSCS HA agent, connects to the ASE server, however not using login/password encryption on the network. When configuration parameter "net password encryption reqd" is set to 1/2, the utilities like haisql, HAase Agent or MSCS HA agent will fail to login to server with following errors : Msg 1640, Level 16, State 2: Adaptive Server requires encryption of the login password on the network. Msg 4002, Level 14, State 1: Login failed. CT-LIBRARY error: ct_connect(): protocol specific layer: external error: The attempt to connect to the server failed.
718398 Update statistics options are 'sticky', meaning previous values which are explicitly set will continue to be used for future update statistics and create index commands on the same table if these options are not specified. These sticky options are: step count (using step values); histogram_tuning_factor; sampling; hashing, partial_hashing, no_hashing. This CR implements a configuration parameter "enable sticky statistics" to control statistics stickiness server wide. The default for "enable sticky statistics" is 1, which matches existing sticky statistics behavior. To turn off sticky statistics, use: sp_configure “enable sticky statistics” , 0
718658 A signal 11 (SIGSEGV) error occured in kmuxtskGetThreadpool() while running sp_sysmon. This is a timing-related issue that is not easy to reproduce. It occurs only on a server that is running in threaded kernel mode.
718733 Support a 'WITH RECOMPILE' clause at the statement level.
718741 Signal 11 in bufdlink() *also reporting ups_nosort_init_prestat() & us_allocate_stat_proc_hdr() * may appear in the error log along with the server shutting down. This can happen when there is a worktable used by an update statistics command that resides on an in-memory tempdb (IMDB)
719212 Applications running against ASE on Solaris platform (SPARC and x64) in threaded mode may experience poor performance (response time and throughput). Analysis of sp_sysmon outputs and MDA tables may show high I/O Busy% and high wait times on disk-related events. Solution requires installation of OS patch for Oracle Bug 16054425 and setting ASE configuration parameter "solaris async i/o mode" to 1. This issue only affects ASE on the Solaris platforms.
719374 When changing the character set to a multibyte character set and running DBCC FIX_TEXT for the table with TEXT columns, the DBCC CHECKTABLE will fail with error 7951, "Data size mismatch while checking a text value".
721270 Immediate PRS creation with a LIKE clause throws a misleading error message that involves a builtin clause, because LIKE is internally converted to a BUILTIN operator.
721403 The status field in sp_helpdb output does not give any indication for temporary databases created with durability of "no_recovery" and normal temporary databases.
721482 sp_configure "o/s file descriptors" may show a larger value than the actual number of file descriptors as indicated in the error log.
721543 When using a resource file with sybmigrate, despite having plenty of room on the repository device specified, sybmigrate does not create the work database at the size specified in the resource file.
721737 When updating a column to have NULL value and an immediate refresh pre-computed result set (materialized view) exists which selects that column, the session will be disconnected unexpectedly and a stack trace that includes the module memmove() will be reported in the error log.
721799 The user usedb_user should not be allowed to create any objects.
721809 ASE at times sends extra TDS DONE packet for ct_cancel CT-Lib call.
721824 When the following is true: (1) the statement cache is on and (2) a dynamic prepared SQL statement containing a abstract plan clause is executed and (3) the same statement is prepared and executed by another ASE session, then the entry in the statement cache that was created by the first execution is not found when the dynamic prepare command is executed in the second session. As a result, a new LWP is created by the second session.
721887 With partitioned tables, some query plans may choose the MERGE UNION ALL operator, rather than Dynamic Partition Elimination.
722058 sybmigrate fails with the error, "Attempt to insert duplicate key row in object 'sysattributes' with unique index 'csysattributes'" at set up stage (sybmigrate -m setup).
722240 ASE Agent Plugin does not automatically detect the ASE error log file location changes.
722535 On Windows 2012, using syconfig, the backup server does not start when using the default backup server name.
722539 DDLGen does not support object dependency export.
722591 Execution of a stored procedure sometimes raises message 10334, "Permission related internal error was encountered". The statement being executed involves many UNIONs selecting from derived tables based on a temp table and the server is configured for multiple tempdbs.
722610 Configure server using different account
722673 The execution of the command "DROP PRECOMPUTED RESULT SET < prs_name > " on the primary database cannot be replicated into the standby database successfully.
722777 ASE does not respond and appears to hang when certain invalid packets are sent to it.
722801 Support is now provided for "high domain" (i.e. > 65535 unique values) parallel create index HASH based statistics gathering on minor attributes.
722823 Different behaviour for ISNULL on a MAX() or MIN() aggregate of a character column may be observed when statement cache is used with esql.
722856 In an HA environment when a role that contains a role activation predicate is dropped on the primary server the secondary server does not remove the predicate metadata.
722867 On Windows machines having multiple network interfaces i.e. both IPv4 and IPv6, ASE may fail to boot Job Scheduler with error, "JS: Failed to connect on socket" whereas JS Agent log indicates that JA Agent is listening with message, "SYB_JSAGENT waiting for connection".
722898 Under some circumstances, a 4720 error "Cannot truncate table '%.*s' because there are one or more isolation level 0 scans, or REORG command, active on the table." may be reported while a temporray is being dropped. Such temporary table is found to have a dlevel0cnt = 12.
722902 DDLGen generates data partition names instead of index partition names in the index partition clause for a clustered index on an all pages locked table . Also the semantic order of partitions in the index partition clause for both clustered and non clustered indexes is not correct. Also if index partition names are system generated, then they are not generated in the partition spec , when -XPN option is specified
723015 The backupserver error message " Invalid RPC sequence at RPC as_cmd." followed by " RPC ('as_cmd') execution failed." may be reported when a LOAD DATABASE is executed and the backupserver name "hostname:portnumber" cannot be resolved correctly.
723226 After changing the owner of a replicated user table while DDL is not setup for replication, RepAgent may replicate DML commands on that table using the wrong owner name.
723259 In rare circumstances, a task may hang when LIKE clause or patindex builtin operator is used on columns which contain LOB data marked as compressed.
723356 A segmentation fault in tally_fetch() after a 249 error may occur during BCP IN due to invalid column default. Previous CR number is 552227 and the fix is under trace flag -T2781. Please turn on the trace flag to check column default data type during table creation time.
723437 A new database option "deallocate first text page", and a new configuration value 2 of table attribute "dealloc_first_txtpg", are provided for tables having TEXT/IMAGE/UNITEXT off-row storage columns, to control whether to deallocate the first text page after updating off-row LOB value from non-NULL to NULL, or whether to allocate a first text page when updating LOB value from NULL to NULL.
723566 The audit option sproc_perms can not be configured with sp_audit.
723588 Under certain circumstances, sp_monitorconfig 'number of locks' reports Max_Used as the total number of locks configured in SDC.
723602 A 156 error, "Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'default'" may be reported when executing ALTER TABLE MOVE PARTITION to 'default' segment.
723672 An 806 error, "Could not find virtual page for logical page < pagenum > in database < dbname > " may be reported when executing DBCC CHECKTABLE.
723847 SELECT INTO and INSERT SELECTs that use UNION statements terminated by a UNION ALL statement may fail with a signal 11 and stack trace that includes the module tree*GcElement::GcGetVar(). This tends to happen if the table being inserted into contains any identity columns that are not explicitly generated in the UNION ALL query.
723872 If there is an UNIQUE index with IGNORE_DUP_KEY option on a partitioned table with many partitions such as 60, the BCP loading performance of OLD DATA may be much slower than that of NEW DATA. NEW DATA means most rows of it will be loaded into the table. OLD DATA means most rows of it will be ignored because they have been loaded into the table.
724023 The message "current process infected with 11" in the module 'bufreserve' together with a stack trace which includes the modules 'drop_al_dbid' and 'alterdb' may be reported in the error log when an ALTER DATABASE LOG OFF command is executed to shrink this database log space.
724175 The Remote Backup Server name is extended to allow the use of IPV6 hostnames with domain name.
724343 When configuring RepAgent to use a security mechanism, the RepAgent Thread may fail to start and report a 9210 error. Moreover, RepAgent is using the ASE server name instead of the ASE principal name.
724472 In rare circumstances, recreation of in-memory databases during start up of SAP ASE may hang when there are more than one in-memory databases with the same template database. SAP ASE can still be used, but an attempt to use the in-memory databases that are not recreated will result in an error 962, "Database with ID ' < value > ' is not available. Please try again later." being reported.
724593 In some rare cases, a UNION query could return wrong result resulting in truncation.
724603 When executing a JOIN involving a proxy table, and the optimizer chooses GROUPINSERTING for the NESTED LOOP JOIN plan, the ordering information in the query is lost and the result is not ordered as expected.
724815 sp_config_dump stored procedure will now display usage information if invoked as sp_config_dump help or sp_config_dump 'help'.
724843 Signal 11 in OmniQuickPass::targetlist()could occur for SQL statement with subquery when show_transformed_sql is on.
724959 When a database is loaded, the dump history file does not show any record for it and hence it is not possible to generate the dump sequence for this database.

725209 ASE on Windows may report "LAST CHANCE EXCEPTION HANDLER on OS thread id < threadID > ...A SERIOUS UNHANDLED EXCEPTION HAS OCCURRED SERVER MAY NOT BE ABLE TO CONTINUE" with kcierrfmt() on the stack during shutdown when the server is forcefully shutdown, for example through CTRL-BREAK.
725315 The VERIFY option for the DUMP and LOAD commands does not give the user any indication of whether errors were found or not. The errors are currently reported only in the backupserver errorlog.
725318 The dataserver gets a segmentation violation when dropping a login while the dataserver configuration for 'number of open databases' is less than the actual number of databases defined in sysdatabases. The segmentation violation is followed by a 905 error, “Unable to allocate a DBTABLE descriptor to open database 'dbname'. Close or drop another database before opening this one, or ask your System Administrator to raise the configuration parameter 'number of open databases'”
725376 Hit error 806 when running shrink database and reorg defrag concurrently.
725608 When resource limits is activated and a maximum transaction elapsed time is set, in CHAINED mode, a transaction is not rolled back after the specified elapsed time limit is exceeded.
725661 The performance of the rollback of a skewed transaction, that is, a transaction that has bursts of activity separated by periods of inactivity, is unnecessarily slow.
725667 Miscellaneous enhancements to the performance of boot time, LOAD DATABASE and LOAD TRAN recovery including better performance in undoing long-running (incomplete) transactions i.e. those that have bursts of activity separated by periods of inactivity.
725669 New feature that reduces the amount of recovery time during LOAD DATABASE at the expense of increasing the time taken by DUMP DATABASE. Data that is changed while DUMP DATABASE is active is included in the dump so that the dump has more up-to-date contents. This is enabled using sp_configure 'optimize dump for faster load', < percentage > . Changed data is included in the database dump when the percentage of database data changed during DUMP DATABASE is more than < percentage > . This defaults to 0 in which no changed data is copied, and there is no reduction in the recovery time of LOAD DATABASE.
725708 The KILL WITH STATUSONLY command has been enhanced and now provides information on the amount of log space scanned and to be scanned for a full transaction rollback. It differentiates different types of rollbacks, and reports a subset of information in cases where the rollback is not a full transaction rollback.
725767 On big-endian platforms, queries involving BIGINT columns in MDA tables may return wrong results.
725858 A 15095 error, "An invalid 'data row id' value was found in first text page of a text/image/unitext column." may be reported when running DBCC CHECKTABLE or DBCC CHECKDB on replicated Data Only Locked tables that have TEXT columns with values on forwarded rows.

727123 Display Stat Wizard may fail with the error message, "Client password encryption fails".
727134 Reduce the use of MASTER..SYSDATABASES scans in order to avoid high SPINLOCK contention on "DEFAULT DATA CACHE" in some cases.
727186 ASE may report errors like "JS: failed to receive jsagent response" and "Job Scheduler Task lost its Agent connection". JS Agent terminates without any errors in the JS Agent log. If core dumps are enabled on the platform, a core file is generated from JS Agent that contains the function sybcsi_mem_free() on the stack.
727277 Auditinit may fail to add devices on space larger than 1 TB.
727310 The message "current process infected with 11" in the module 'th_curunreservedpgs' may be reported when a session executes a SELECT statement that uses the T-SQL function "curunreservedpgs" while another session is in the process of extending the size of the current database with ALTER DATABASE command.
727475 If the user is granted system roles indirectly through a user defined role, execution of sp_addthreshold fails with error message 10353 "You must have any of the following role(s) to execute this command/procedure: ' < names > ' . Please contact a user with the appropriate role for help."
727484 A 17260 error, "Can't run sp_dbextend from within a transaction" may be reported when sp_dbextend is invoked in CHAINED mode.
727762 Query with long IN list might cause stack corruption.
727816 sp_downgrade 'downgrade' will fail at step 990 with a 137 error, "Must declare variable '@show_'".
727846 The APFPercentage value in the monCachePool MDA table may report incorrect value.
727884 Downgrade to versions lower than 15.7 ESD#2 will not remove the predid column from sysprotects.csysprotects. sp_fixindex or dbcc reindex will not change the index to the pre 15.7 ESD#2 definition.
727887 Trace flag 364 support added for ASE 15.0 which uses the range density instead of the total density for optimizer costing when constant sarg values are unknown. Trace flag 16982 is created which uses the total density instead of the computed join histogram density. If trace flag 364 and 16982 are both set, then the sarg density will be used for the join.
728027 In rare cases, the TRANSFER TABLE command may skip exporting an updated row if a target table is a Datapage or Datarow Locked table and it has forwarded rows or may hang up if a target table is a Datapage or Datarow Locked table and it has forwarded rows and large I/O buffer pools are configured.
728157 Auditinit may a core dump if the "LANG" environment variable is not set correctly.
728173 When inserting data into a table containing LOB columns and ASE happens to run out of log space, the message "Space available in the log segment has fallen critically low in database < dbname > . All future modifications to this database will be aborted until the log is successfully dumped and space becomes available" followed by a stack trace that includes the module logmodify() may be reported in the error log.
728364 KBA 1857851. An 806 error, "Could not find virtual page for logical page < pagenum > in database < dbname > " may be reported when executing a stored procedure whose query plan is cached.
728419 DDLGen does not generate the partition name and segment information for a hash partitioned All Pages Locked table with a clustered index. Only the number of partitions are generated in the DDLGen output.
728430 Running UPDATE STATISTICS on an index containing non-materializing column may hit an error with a stack trace containing the modules stat_bld_row() and collocate().

Please contact Sybase Technical Support." error.
728845 When attempting to migrate objects that may have storable comments such as PROCEDUREs, VIEWs, UDFs, PRE-COMPUTED RESULTSETs etc, if there are braces (curly brackets) within the comment section migration will fail with with a java.sql.SQLException. The same error will be observed if a curly brace appears anywhere in the proc DDL (search argument for example).
728894 ASE fails to install with Job Scheduler on roman8 charset.
728903 Under some rare conditions, if there is a HASH AGGREGATE operator above a JOIN operator, wrong query results may occur and it could also lead to data corruption.
728961 Error 207 may occur while running the sp_dboption stored procedure if quoted_identifier is turned on. This may also affect the Sybase Control Center Database Properties dialog by preventing the database options from being viewed or modified within Sybase Control Center.
728963 Fixed spelling abbraviation error, mesc (millisecond) to proper abbreviation: sec.

729192 Deadlock may occur when SHRINKDB runs concurrently with REORG DEFRAG.
729204 Data Only Locked tables with placement index undergoing ALTER TABLE MERGE PARTITION may lead to index corruption with 696 errors.
729335 ALTER TABLE MERGE PARTITION may fail with error 14108 on a empty range partitioned All Page Locked table with a clustered index.
729373 During the execution of DUMP DATABASE if the "compress::" option is used and only one stripe is specified, ASE 15.7 ESD#3, 15.7 ESD#3.1 and 15.7 ESD#4 will ignore the compression option prefix, resulting in an uncompressed dump. Additionally loading a valid pre-15.7 ESD#3 compressed single stripe dump will fail.
729461 Columns with more than 65535 unique values, which also have some skewed values (i.e. represented as frequency cells in the histogram) could result in inconsistent histograms in which weights are outside the range of 0.0 to 1.0
729509 An 8201 error, "Keep count of descriptor was expected to be 1. Instead 0 was found" may be reported by the upgrade utility when upgrading from 12.5.4
729603 In rare cases, after the last chance threshold is crossed and the user executes DUMP TRANSACTION to free up log space, the last chance bit DBTH_LASTCHANCE will remain set in memory in DBTABLE, which will continue to cause processes to be suspended by the last chance threshold mistakenly.
729624 Cluster deadlock occurs when process allocating a new page holding LLOL waits on WAIT_FOR_BASTPENDING. This issue only affects ASE Cluster Edition.
729766 A new configuration value of '2' is added to configuration option 'enable xml' for external entity reference in XML documents, ie, set "sp_configure 'enable xml', 2" for external entity reference in XML documents.
729795 The incorrect message "The dump configuration ' < value > ' supplied for SELECT is invalid. The change is completed. The option is dynamic and ASE need not be rebooted for the change to take effect." may be reported by sp_config_dump with an option that is longer than the supported length.
729919 In very rare situations where incorrect port number is specified for sp_listener, subsequent calls to sp_listener might fail.
729937 Enhancement is made to reduce the use of MASTER..SYSDATABASES scan for better performance when accessing tables in other databases.
729957 A 2626 error, "Illegal attempt to insert duplicate key row in the clustered index partition database < dbname > , object < objname > , index < idxname > , partition < ptnname > " followed by a stack trace involving the module indinsert() may be reported when inserting and deleting duplicate key rows in the clustered index partition for All Pages Locked table numerous times.
729984 getpass.exe which is utilized in Web Services on Windows only, is currently not compatible with x64 platforms. This issue only affects ASE on the Windows 64 platform.
730051 When REORG REBUILD WITH ONLINE is running in parallel with DMLs, DMLs may fail with a 540 error - "Schema for database object ' < name > ' has changed since compilation of this query. Please re-execute query.".
730082 DBCC REINDEX has been enhanced to provide a new option (option value: 32) to drop suspect replication indexes only. The syntax is DBCC REINDEX (tab_name | tabid , 32)
730154 Increase the number of expressions allowed in an ORDER BY clause.
730183 Extended stored procedures added using sp_addextendedproc are malformed leading to failure of the extended stored procedure. sp_helpextendedproc shows an extraneous '[' character in the DLL name.

730280 12308 error with delete or update against table in a query with distinctness e.g. joining to a distinct view or distinct derived table, and exists subquery, a union view or union in a derived table. changes associated with optcriteria cr669847 are enabled by default, but previous behavior (i.e. turn on fix only if optcriteria cr669847 is on) can be obtained by using trace flag 16987
730281 The sense of Trace Flag 7773 has been inverted. Use of Trace Flag 7773 now disables the fix for CR 653511, which is on by default, ie, if a stored procedure undergoes recompilation, and the procedure makes assumptions regarding the session's state (ie session environment settings), the resulting recompiled plan can be significantly different than the original. This fix is now disabled when Trace Flag 7773 is on.
730354 sp_sysmon can return incorrect CPU metrics.
730503 An update of a view that has an INSTEAD OF trigger can cause an infected with signal 11 stacktrace in function copy_one_resdom() if the update assigns values to local variables.
730608 ASE might report the 225 error that some query--referenced object cannot be dropped during query optimization in sp_sysmon_kernel_threaded when running sp_sysmon in parallel.
730656 Cache bindings may be ignored if a 'strict' database recovery order is specified.
730673 The PCI Memory management layer is enhanced to better service memory allocation requests for ASE tasks executing JAVA operations. The layer now makes a better decision from where to allocate the requested memory. It either uses the PCI Fragment memory pool for end-user coded objects, or the O/S system run-time for JavaVM internal operations.
730787 CREATE LOGIN does not check if the login name already exists before calling sp_extrapwdchecks. This can cause sp_extrapwdchecks to update information stored for the existing login.
730807 While using the partition_name builtin on multiple objects, the active objects could be recycled resulting in an information message, "Increase the config parameter 'number of open partitions' to avoid descriptor reuse. Reuse may result in performance degradation" being printed in the ASE errorlog.
730831 sybcluster: create cluster complain release not exist when just no permission
730906 Isolation level 0 queries occasionally fail with errors when REORG REBUILD WITH ONLINE is in progress concurrently on the same table.
730953 The global variable @@tranchained shows inconsistent value when "SET CHAINED ON" is executed in the login trigger.

731026 Certain stored procedures created with "execute as caller" may encounter errors at execution time.
731065 KBA 2113967. DUMP DATABASE is getting a inappropriate warning message about DUMP TRAN with truncate_only
731079 The number of unreserved pages may be incorrect after LOAD DATABASE has been executed if the database dump is from an older ASE version and it contains a large number of tables, each having multiple partitions.
731171 An arithmetic overflow error may be reported by the function sp_f_getval when sp_spaceused is executed against large tables.
731179 The recovery redo pass unnecessarily attempts to fix problems with deallocations and reservations for some committed transactions in cases where there was a long-running transaction at the time of the last checkpoint.
731354 A signal 11 occurs in the function collectMonCSInfo when a query is executed on the monCachedStatement MDA table and the statement cache contains a statement that was created with a user-defined optimization goal.
731372 On tables with indexes, heavy insert activities can lead to 1295 errors, "Unconditional lock request for table or page was made while holding a latch".
731437 DUMP DATABASE with verify[=header | full] options and LOAD DATABASE with verify[only][=header | full] options commands have been enhanced to detect a mismatch between the page header and tail timestamps for Data Only Locked tables.
731468 sp_versioncrack returns NULL as ESD, with new ASE version strings.
731531 Enhancement is made to use less SYSTYPES scans when creating table.
731617 KBA 1827181. When DUMP DATABASE or DUMP TRANSACTION is run to a tape device, if the tape device configuration file ‘backup_tape.cfg’ exists, ASE will not be able to read it and the dump will fail. The Backup Server will report the error, "The format of the device configuration file < $SYBASE > /backup_tape.cfg is invalid. Remove the configuration file and reconfigure the device by issuing a DUMP with the INIT qualifier. Return code = 0".
731718 When a character set conversion is required for very long string input ( > 255 character), for example converting client Windows code page 1252 to a server using code page 850, if the input string had a character unconvertible to the server character set, the connection would be inappropriately killed (with a stack trace), in addition to the issuance of the server conversion error message.
731753 If ALTER TABLE is used to add a NOT MATERIALIZED column < c2 > with a default, then another nullable column < c3 > is added to the table and REORG REBUILD the table, a query to the table will also assign the default to the column < c3 > .
731758 When executing UPDATE STATISTICS with an object name that contains unusual characters, the command may fail with an internal error.
731769 In case of an exception, SAP ASE hits an error 1265 while aborting / rolling back the transaction. Abort or rollback of the transaction may happen because of some internal / external error. Error: 1265, Severity: 20, State: 1 An illegal attempt was made to release an invalid lock or a lock that is not owned by the process family.
731783 The message, "An internal memory management error has occurred. Error code: Invalid slot id.", followed by a stack trace involving the modules mda_exec() and mda_populate_monTask() may be reported when querying table monTask with clause KTID=0.
731808 If a LIKE predicate is used, then optimizer estimates for keys for a limiting index scan may be incorrect if a VARCHAR variable is used for the pattern match. This is especially true when there are no pattern matching characters used e.g. r.a LIKE "ABC". optcriteria CR731808 can be used to correct the optimizer estimate issue. Command line trace flag 16965 will also enable the fix.
731818 The Backup Server is enhanced to perform consistency checks on All Pages Locked (APL) and Data Only Locked (DOL) data pages during DUMP DATABASE execution. If an error is detected on a page, the page is reread for validation. These checks will be performed if DUMP DATABASE is executed using WITH VERIFY option. Alternatively, start up the backup server with boot time trace flag -D64, or use the run time trace flag SYB_BACKUP...qatraceon 8, to enable these checks by default.
731874 A 15432 error, "A validation check failed when Adaptive Server decrypted an encryption key. This error may indicate an incorrect password" is raised when a user with login association of a key executes a stored procedure that accesses a column that is encrypted with the key.

732185 An ALTER TABLE command issued on a partitioned table where the partition degree is greater than the user's parallel degree may result in various failures.
732258 DBCC UPGRADE_OBJECT with the "check" option may raise bogus 11031 (Execution of < type > < name > failed because of errors parsing the source text in syscomments during upgrade. Please drop and recreate < name > ) errors on every object checked after it encounters an object with an actual error.
732329 Under some rare conditions, a 4720 error "Cannot truncate table '%.*s' because there are one or more isolation level 0 scans, or REORG command, active on the table" may be reported if auto_temptable_stats is turned on.
732385 The message, "Current process infected with signal 11" followed by a stack trace that includes the module VTABRemoteAccess() may be raised when accessing a proxy table materialized at procedure whose name starts with a '$'.
732393 An 804 error, "Unable to find buffer < buffer address > from cache < cache name > holding logical page < page number > in sdes < sdes address > kept buffer pool for object < table name > ", may be reported when inserting data into TEXT/IMAGE/UNITEXT columns.
732406 sybmigrate does not preserve indexes in the indexid order.
732410 In rare cases, dataserver can hang due to this deadlock situation: one session sleeps on grabbing DES while updating statistic in rollback a DELETE; the other session sleeps on writing dirty buffers when scavenging a DES.
732482 A query against a remote table may get a signal 11 during UPDATE STATISTICS.
732503 The message "current process infected with 11 (SIGSEGV)" in the module 'des__clean' together with a stack trace which includes the modules 'des_refreshall' and 'online_database' may be reported in the SAP ASE error log when multiple sessions are executing the ONLINE DATABASE command simultaneously for the same database. This will result in SAP ASE shutting down implicitly.
732588 Under certain circumstances when a threshold action is defined, and user is dropping a procedure, and the procedure happens to be the last row of the sysprocedures page, an 873 error may be reported when log space is low, and the threshold proc gets spawned.
732604 The summary stats for histogram (i.e. unique count, density) generated by hash based statistics gathering may be inaccurate. This could occur when OPTDIAG labels a histogram as "high domain".
732613 The Job Scheduler fails to start if quoted_identifier property is set for the connection (which is used to start the Job Scheduler). The following error is logged in the SAP ASE errorlog: "Job Scheduler: IS_ISQL_EXT failed [set nocount on use sybmgmtdb print ":s: %1!", "sybmgmtdb"]"
732631 REORG REBUILD < table_name > WITH ONLINE command, does not update the index create time-stamp(index_created field in sp_helpindex output) for the indexes rebuilt.
732640 Schema lock displayed as GUID lock in sp_lock output
732693 ALTER TABLE < TABLENAME > SPLIT PARTITION may fail with errors such as 2601 (Attempt to insert duplicate key row in object < name > with unique index < name > ) when there is a non-clustered index.
732728 The unreserved space stored in the table sysusages can become a huge number bigger than the fragment itself if the number of allocated pages indicated in the OAM pages for some objects becomes corrupted and show pages allocated that are not.
732777 Under some circumstances, a 4720 error "Cannot truncate table '%.*s' because there are one or more isolation level 0 scans, or REORG command, active on the table." may be reported while a temporray is being dropped. Such temporary table is found to have a dlevel0cnt = 12.
732921 A 8201 error, "Keep count of descriptor (objid=14, dbid= < value > ) was expected to be 1. Instead 0 was found" followed by a stack trace that includes the module 'des__unkeep' may be raised if ASE fails to allocate space for either SYSGAMS or SYSDAMS.
732995 Sometimes Procedure Cache ELC (Engine Local Cache) for some of the engines does not get configured during engine boot, which leads to Procedure cache ELC not getting used on the engine and thus leads to contention on the rproccache_spin spinlock. This condition can be detected using the ASE errorlog. If an engine is brought online but does not have the message "Proc header memory allocated < nn > pages for engine < engine_id > local cache" for that engine then the Procedure Cache ELC is not properly configured for that engine.
733051 If the number of system roles of target server is more than source server's, after running symigrate -m migrate, sybmigrate will drop from sysusers those roles that are 'new' in the target server. This issue can specially be seen when users are migrating from ASE 12.5.4 to ASE 15.7.x
733146 In rare cases, the message "Invalid column length" may be reported in the ASE errorlog to indicate there are issues in the index creation when creating an index on a Page Compressed table.
733194 Incorrect disk activity may be reported by sp_sysmon_diskio when there is no disk I/O in given sample period on this device.
733215 After upgrading, the value of systabstats.rowcnt for the syspartitions and sysobjects tables will be 1 less than the actual number of rows in these two system tables.
733226 If a parallel plan's thread count exceeds the session's parallel degree, then the plan will undergo Compile time Thread Adjustment (CTA). If the plan contains a semantic scan under a semantic dependent operator (JOIN, DISTINCT, GROUP, or UNION_DISTINCT), then the semantic dependent operator's plan fragment (from its containing xchg op) may have it's degree adjusted incorrectly which could result in wrong results.
733305 KBA 1864300. An ASE spid with remote I/O may hang when killed. Even reissuing the kill does not help.
733331 Error message 1509 may be raised when CREATE INDEX or UPDATE STATISTIC is executed in parallel on huge table where there are very few distinct COLUMNS values.
733346 The stored procedure sp_dropexternlogin will fail when executed by a user that has SSO_ROLE and not SA_ROLE when granular permissions is not enabled.
733367 Provide downgrade support from 15.7 SP110 to SP100 to prevent loading database or transaction dumps containing transactional activity from INSERT-BULK with parallel index updates work load. Extend db_attr(), and loginfo() built-ins to examine database feature-set. Extend LOAD ... WITH HEADERONLY to report the features found in the dumps.
733428 The "recovery prefetch size" configuration parameter is added to configure the lookahead size (in terms of log pages) in order for recovery to prefetch to-be-recovered pages. When set to 0, SAP ASE will automatically optimize the value.
733446 In DDLGen 15.7 ESD#3 and later, 'set quoted_identifier on' is reported in the DDL output even when it is not specified in the actual create table SQL.
733462 A timeslice error may occur followed by a stack trace involving the module itl_au_update_xfer_mark() with executing BCP-IN or update DMLs, if 'transfer table' is set on a large table with data more than 47GB on 2KB page size (95GB on 4KB pagesize, 190GB on 8KB pagesize, 380GB on 16KB pagesize).
733579 The unreserved page count might be off by the number of pages of the table SYSDAMS if SAP ASE uses the OAM pages to calculate the free space counts. The database fragments containing pages of the system table SYSDAMS will show the space used by this table as free.
733604 Add the ability to suppress warning message regarding the ignoring of hints under the presence of abstract plans. This is enabled under Trace Flag 15381.
733623 ASE allows configuration parameter 'max online engines' to be set to a value lower than 'number of engines at startup' leading to an incorrect value for the parameter 'max online Q engines'. This can result in incorrect calculations for the 'maximum number of engines' resulting in ASE hitting a SIGSEGV followed by a stack trace involving the module ueisonline().
733750 Timeslices may occur with statistics gathering using hashing.
733752 The estimate for NULLs in the optimizer may be incorrect if hash based statistics gathering is used, when the number of unique values in the column is greater than 65535.
733766 The severity of error message 5805 and 5806 is now changed from EX_USER to EX_INFO since they are just warnings.
733776 After an upgrade, execution of a procedure may fail with error 102 "incorrect syntax near [ endend | grantgrant ]" and error 11031 due to the source code being stored incorrectly in syscomments when it contains multiple GRANT statements. Manually correct the source code, then drop and re-create the procedure.
733838 ASE no longer rejects requests to add remote logins with same server name as local server.
733893 Device Props does not display databases that are using a device on little-endian machines. On big-endian machines, unintended databases may get displayed.
733904 Active roles being reset leading to permission errors.
733907 The error 822 "Could not start I/O for request.." followed by a stack trace that includes the module altdb_shrinklog() could be raised in a Cluster Edition server if a fragment of the database log is shurnk using the command ALTER DATABASE LOG OFF and the device where this fragment was is dropped.
733932 KBA 1914594. When a user with sso_role runs a query accessing a table, a 2736 error, "Owner name that was specified is a group name. Objects cannot be owned by groups" may occur followed by a 706 error, "Process < n > tried to remove PROC_HDR < addr > that it does not hold in Pss", during recompiling a light-weight procedure if statement cache is enabled. The processed will be terminated.
733937 When using hash based statistics gathering on columns with more than 65535 unique values there is a possibility of inaccurate summary statistics of the range density and range unique counts as displayed in optdiag. This may lead to suboptimal query plan selection.
734031 Add open client version to monProcess under column ClientVersion
734125 The 695 error, "An attempt was made to read logical page ' < n > ' for database ' < dbname > '..." could be raised in an archive database when the database dump contains more than 256 contiguous log pages.
734176 If DBCC DBREBOOT is unsuccessful for some reason, the status in sysdatabases may sometimes incorrectly indicate that a forced shutdown is in progress, even after SAP ASE has been shutdown and rebooted successfully.
734184 In rare occasions, Adaptive Server's internal timer becomes non-operational. Such occurrence is reported to the errorlog with messages like “Warning: Alarm Service for Timer non-operational. If this message generated multiple times, report to support and restart the server (alarminterval=-7001)”
734204 When the configuration parameter 'max network peek depth' is configured to a positive value, ASE will look for an attention up to the specified depth in the pending input on a connection, and if one is found, all input preceding the attention packet as well as the attention packet itself are discarded, the currently executing command is canceled and an attention acknowledgement is sent to the client. When running with the default value 0 of the configuration parameter, ASE looks for an attention only at the start of pending input.
734211 DDLGen can generate an incorrect header message while generating ddl for a load profile. Instead of saying 'DDL for LoadProfile', it can say 'DDL for :user'.
734212 ASE hits SIGNAL 11 (SIGSEGV) when it runs out of spinlocks under heavy CT-Lib calls if 'max cis remote connections' configuration value is DEFAULT (which is 0). Setting 'max cis remote connections' to appropriate value is suggested to avoid reserving high number of spinlocks (upto four times 'number of user connections').
734214 Command line trace flag 16964 is added to turn off the row constructor optimization for range predicates. This optimization may cause an underestimate of the limiting selectivity of an index scan when a range predicate exists on an indexed column followed by limiting predicates on subsequent columns. For example, if an index I(a,b,c) has predicates a > 5 and b=10 and c > 20 then the range predicate on “a” is followed by minor attributes “b” and “c” which also have limiting predicates... then the scan selectivity on the index "I" may be underestimated.
734394 When ASE Server is not in single user mode during sp_downgrade 'prepare', report a warning message to indicate it instead of stopping the validation.
734395 When dropping an encryption key, the 15401 message is reported with malformed values in the message.
734470 When SAP ASE is booted with trace flag 7437 it will not switch from an OAM scan to an allocation page scan when an incorrect page count value in one or more OAM entries is found during boot time recovery and while calculating the free space page counts for a database.
734475 The LogicalReads value in the monProcessActivity and monProcessStatement MDA tables remained unchanged when a long query is executing.
734500 The index page scanning selectivity estimate may be too optimistic for an index, in which a prefix of 0 or more positioning equality predicates (such as r.a = 1 and r.b = 2) is followed by a positioning range predicate such as (r.c > 5) is following by subsequent trailing positioning predicates (such as r.d = 10 and r.e > = 20). The change enabled by the new optcriteria limit_row_constructor will limit the index page scan reduction by at most 50% (in our example it will limit reductions contributed by r.d, r.e).
734617 Adaptive Server 15.7 may execute SELECT queries at isolation level 3 on Data Only Locked scheme tables slower than SAP ASE 15.0.3 or 15.5 if the session executing the SELECT query holds a large number of locks.
734660 The error "Page Verification Error: Page mismatch. Page < page # > contains 0 in page header." could be incorrectly printed in the Backup Server errorlog when executing DUMP DATABASE WITH VERIFY. This error is spurious and can be ignored.
734702 For objects with no storage, error 691 may be reported while running a CREATE INDEX command if either a dump is in progress or an incremental dump is in progress.
734705 After running sp_reptostandby/sp_setreptable/sp_setrepcol with "use_index" option on compressed in-row LOB columns, dbcc checktable() may report various kinds of index errors.
734716 At times the systabstats empty page count column may get values near to 2^32 (~4294967295) if inserts into a table are rolled back.
734750 srvbuildres optimization fails when specifying '16K' as the logical page size in the resource file for the Adaptive Server.
734800 Backup Server may occasionally report a spurious error when executing a DUMP or LOAD WITH VERIFY[ONLY], as a result of checking a page that is already deallocated. This is more likely to happen when the deallocated page belonged to compressed table.
734866 The builtin asehostname() is now made a grantable builtin.
734897 On a High Availability (HA) System, sp_companion may hang if sp_sysmon is running at the same time.
734899 A 692 error, "Uninitialized logical page < pageno > was read while accessing database ...", may be reported after loading an in-memory database dump from a database where this page was used but was marked as deallocated incorrectly, resulting in this page not being archived in the dump.
734968 Sometimes queries that involve multiple DERIVED TABLEs or VIEWs may return wrong results. The kind of queries that could be affected by this needs the following elements: (1) A DERIVED TABLE with a correlated expression SUBQUERY as one of the DERIVED TABLE’s SELECT list items. (2) Another correlated SUBQUERY in the parent query block which is referencing the expression SUBQUERY result from 1) as the correlated column. (3) Both 1) and 2) are under an IN SUBQUERY of the top query block. 1) and 2) lead ASE query tree to use a worktable for the DERIVED TABLE and 3) puts an EXISTS requirement over a table used by the DERIVED TABLE. The combination causes ASE to miss the EXISTS requirement on the table when generating a plan and leads to duplicate rows.
734983 Added new option SET PLAN SHARED ON and server wide param 'abstract plan sharing'. It enables Abstract Plan sharing between different users. Tables in the query with shared abstract plan must be explicitly prefixed with the owner name or belong to the DBO user.
735003 The built-ins or stored procedures that rely on OAM for space accounting get blocked on an exclusive table lock on the table.
735029 When the source server is 15.7 ESD#2 or later, sybmigrate -m migrate session may fail with the error, "The catalog 'sysusers' in the target database appears to contain rows which were either installed by the user or were previously migrated. Cannot proceed with migration of 'Users'".
735036 KBA 2011833. When running concurrent SELECT commands and DELETE/UPDATE commands on TEXT/IMAGE/UNITEXT columns, the client connection may hang or report a TDS token error or raise error 7128 state 6.
735107 A 247 (arithmetic overflow) error may be reported when the syscachepoolinfo and syscacheinfo MDA tables are queried.
735163 Adaptive Server Enterprise may crash and generate a core dump without any stack trace or messsage while multiple sessions run sp_companion simultaneously in threaded kernel mode.
735187 A 2583 error, "Number of data pages < value > counted by DBCC differs from count in the data OAM < pageid > for dbid < dbid > object < objectid > ." may be reported when running DBCC CHECKTABLE on a table having a clustered index or placement index after the database that the table resides on experienced a load tran of ASE 15.5 or earlier to a server of ASE 15.7 or after.
735256 Sometimes an insert query with union view or derived table with union in which tables have check constraint, could cause a signal 11 (SIGSEGV) and a stacktrace in errorlog involving the function NormalizeScalar().
735270 For query SELECTing multiple count aggregates, wrong result could happen when the final plan uses two phase aggregates. One of the count aggregates could come from an AVG(). It is more likely to happen when the two phase aggregate plan is also a parallel plan, or when the query is also a GROUPBY query with a HAVING clause equal-comparing two of the count aggregates.
735292 An ASE task making a remote procedure call to a server with server option 'net password encryption' set to true and 'cis_rpc_handling' disabled can go to sleep indefinitely and the client appears to be hung.
735311 syconfig.exe fails to optimize the server.
735327 A 692 error, "Uninitialized logical page '24' was read while accessing object '2' in database ' < dbid > '. Please contact Sybase Technical Support." may be reported when a 12.5.4 ASE database dump that was made with a 15.7 ESD#4.2 Backup Server is loaded back in a 12.5.4 ASE.
735346 ALTER TABLE on a data compressed table may lead to heap memory (CPINFO pool) corruption. ASE stacktraces may be seen involving the functions kbfalloc() and cpinfo_allocbufs().
735431 The error, "Table Corrupt: The row number and offset of each row in the page should have a matching entry in row number table ..." will be incorrectly reported in the Backup Server error log on pages with deleted rows that belong to an All Pages Locked table when executing DUMP/LOAD WITH VERIFY.
735513 System table sysusers is accessed too often during procedure execution.
735516 Need a mechanism to change the size of Engine Local Cache (ELC). By default ELC is 50 % of configured procedure cache size.
735567 The Backup Server is enhanced to perform consistency checks on Data Only Locked (DOL) index pages besides data pages during DUMP DATABASE execution.
735662 In rare scenarios, highly contended system with large number of databases, workload consisting of large number of short dmls, rdbts_spin could be highly contended.
735692 The function row_count() when used on system tables returns zero after upgrade from SAP ASE 12.5.4
735705 If a procedure get recompiled during execution, query against monProcessProcedures may get duplicate procedure entries.
735727 When updating an in-row LOB datum to NULL, the LTL generated for the update of the datum wrongly includes the LTL qualifier 'tpinit' instead of the qualifier 'zerolen'. This does not cause data corruption, or interruption of replication. Nevertheless, according to the LTL specification, the qualifier 'zerolen' must be used.
735812 The unreserved space reported by either the stored procedure sp_helpdb or the builtin curunreservedpgs() could be wrong after executing any of the stored procedures sp_addsegment, sp_extendsegment or sp_dropsegment.
735863 When running optimization goal allrows_dss it is possible that an incorrect aggregate result may be returned in rare circumstances involving a derived table or view containing a union all with the aggregate operating on a constant in the select list on at least one side of the union all.
735868 In rare case, SELECT on a DOL table with index may cause ASE to shut down with a timeslice error and followed by a stack trace that includes the modules bt__handle_LAdone(), bt__qualpage(), bt__scan_massoffset() and bufoffset().
735879 The backupserver sample resource file is missing ASE login and password attributes for sybatch.exe
736017 A 7949 error, "The number of pages used and unused for object < objid > index 255 partition < ptnid > on allocation page < alloc_page_no > do not match the counts in the OAM entry." followed by error 7940, "The counts in the OAM are incorrect. This implies that there are entries missing. Run tablealloc utility with the FIX option on the table with the inaccurate OAM counts." may be reported by DBCC TEXTALLOC and FULL option after inserting data with BCP into a table that has LOB columns and the option 'lob_compression' is enabled in the target database.
736019 When using hash based statistics collection and over 65535 unique values exist in the column then it is possible that the summary statistics (such as density) may be slightly inaccurate. If one looks at the optdiag output for the column and determines that a range cell is used for the first cell even though only one domain value can fit into the cell, then it is possible for summary statistics inaccuracies. It is possible, but unlikely, that query plans could be adversely affected.
736079 A cheaper plan containing the merge_union_all operator may be skipped in favor of a more expensive plan using a sort operator on top of an append_union_all.
736093 In rare cases in a cluster environment with more than one node, ONLINE DATABASE may hang if the log segment free space falls below a threshold.
736179 A 3261 error, "You cannot load this dump because it contains functionality that is available only on the server on which it was dumped" will be reported by LOAD DATABASE when trying to load a database dump which was taken while the database option "deallocate first text page" was active, or at least one table in this database had the attribute "dealloc_first_txtpg" set to 2.
736268 A login account that has a login-specific password expiration setting may have the global password expiration setting applied to it if the server encounters a 1204 (out of locks) error during the login attempt.
736426 The Java Compile Suite layer in Adaptive Server that is responsible for UDF/ADT support and SQLJ queries execution towards the target JavaVM has been enhanced to allow the release of intermediate allocated Java objects. This was causing the JavaVM heap memory allocation to be exhausted under a heavy load application environment.
736428 The message, "Transaction count after EXECUTE indicates that a COMMIT or ROLLBACK TRAN is missing. Previous count = 1, Current count = 0" is wrongly reported in chain mode.
736435 In rare circumstances, dropping a connection upon the CIS idle timeout may result in concurrent execution of Ct-library calls which may result in undesirable behavior.
736499 Linux client failed to redirect connections to Windows Server.
736536 sp_dbextend does not observe default device growby limits.
736538 sp_sysmon gives wrong average values for 'Engine Busy Utilization' in process kernel mode.
736550 Under rare circumstances a 696 error: "An attempt was made to read logical page ' < page# > ' for database ' < dbname > ' ( < dbid > ), object ' < tablename > ' ... from disk. Wrong logical page ' < page# > ' was brought into cache 'default data cache'." may be reported in the error log for allocation pages after the execution of CREATE, ALTER or LOAD DATABASE commands in an ASE installation using a page size that is greater than 2K-bytes and when during their execution the message "No large buffers were available, so pages are being cleared by writing each page separately. Please be patient" is reported. Alternatively a 2529 error, "Table Corrupt: Attempted to get page < page# > , partition ID 99; got page < page# > , partition ID 99." may be reported by DBCC CHECKALLOC.
736603 In some rare cases, accessing a system table could result in 8201 error being raised.
736622 When running REORG REBUILD against a table whose name or any column name might form part of a reserved double or triple keyword phrase it is possible for an error 156 error to be reported along with error 11934 and for the REORG REBUILD command to abort.
736626 KBA 2015067. When ASE is configured with the 'process' kernel mode and with several engines, the RepAgent Thread may be infected with signal 11 in the module 'uctSetIssuedCnt' while shutting down with a stack trace reported in the error log which includes the modules 'usctclose' and 'ra_drop_csconn'.
736645 After downgrading from ASE 15.7 to ASE 15.5GA, when booting the ASE 15.5GA server, a segmentation fault may be encountered during startup while attempting to reconcile the downgraded configuration options.
736699 If there are significant concurrent activities which pin buffer cache pages in the named tempdb cache (or default data cache) then it is possible that the server could appear to hang due to lack of buffer cache. The kind of activity that could lead to this state is "hash based statistics gathering", "sorts", "query plans using hash operators".
736754 The error 2550, "Missing segment in sysusages segmap", will be unnecessarily reported by DBCC CHECKCATALOG if a database has a fragment with a segmap equal to 0.
736888 In rare circumstances, a 3474 error, "During redo the page timestamp value is less than old timestamp from log" may happen while loading a transaction log dump containing a rollback of a CREATE INDEX operation in database that has ddl_in_tran option on.
736902 Optdiag tool was running as a ctlib application of a lower version, so it misinterpreted (and wrongly displayed) BIGDATETIME and BIGTIME values reported for statistics.
736951 Improved the RAT Multiple Scanners code concurrency by removing the usage of un-needed locking primitives.
736957 In certain circumstances, databases, including system databases, can incorrectly get into LOG SUSPEND mode, issuing message: "Space available in the log segment has fallen critically low in database ' < dbname > '. All future modifications to this database will be suspended until the log is successfully dumped and space becomes available." This may happen even though there is much unreserved space in the database. The problem may also manifest in 3475 errors: "There is no space available in SYSLOGS to log a record for which space has been reserved in database < dbname > ."
736978 On High Availability (HA) System, accessing a proxy table may raise a 102 error (Incorrect syntax near '.') after failover occurs and the connection is migrated to the secondary companion ASE.
737039 A 941 error, "Illegal database context operation." may be repeatedly reported in the error log by the housekeeper wash task. An ASE reboot is the only option to stop this message from being reported.
737093 When a table is partitioned based on a list of values including the NULL value, the NULL value may be ignored when compared to NULL, leading to wrong results.
737108 Assertion fail in le_subst.cpp maybe raised when index only contains fixed-length columns.
737292 In some circumstances, monOpenObjectActivity may report ObjectCacheDate for the cached object as 'Jan 1 1900 12:00AM' or other wrong date value.
737327 Querying a DATE column from remote DB2 table may result in cs_convert overflow error.
737338 When the stored procedure sp_renamedb is executed from a read-only database, a wrong error message, "You cannot run stored procedure 'sp_renamedb' from a low durability database" is reported. The message should be "You cannot run stored procedure 'sp_renamedb' from a read-only database".
737365 DUMP DATABASE to TSM API on Windows platforms can fail with the error message, "D00: SYBMULTBUF ERROR: Emulator interprocess communication failed with error state = 9, error code=109, system message=Cannot get operating system error tex." Occasionally, the message, "system message =The pipe has been ended. Refer to your operating system documentation for further details." can also be reported. This issues only affects ASE on the Windows platforms.
737481 In rare cases, when updating CHAR, VARCHAR or IN-ROW-LOB columns on a PAGE compressed table and there are many non-printable characters in the existing column value, the update may fail.
737524 In rare circumstances, an 8201 error, "Keep count of descriptor (objid= < obj_id > , dbid= < db_id > ) was expected to be 1. Instead 2 was found" followed by a stack trace that includes the modules des__clean() and des__scavenge() when a system is running out of descriptors.
737543 KBA 1912577. Added a diagnostic check to help identify LRU chain issues. Trace flag 897 has been added to enable the diagnostics.
737577 The 3702 error,"Cannot drop the procedure 'sp_aux_getsize' because it is currently in use." will be raised if a user tries to drop the stored procedure sp_aux_getsize before the server has finished the recovery of every database.
737628 Intelligient index scan may lead to non-optimal index in plan selection.
737697 When running UPDATE INDEX STATISTICS with SAMPLING command, numerous errors may be reported in the errorlog - 1105 errors: "Can't allocate space for object 'temp worktable' in database 'tempdb' because 'system' segment is full/has no free extents. If you ran out of space in syslogs, dump the transaction log. Otherwise, use ALTER DATABASE to increase the size of the segment" and 1764 errors: "Failed to insert row into worktable, when projecting base table on to work table for collecting statistics".
737702 Certain stored procedures created with "execute as caller" and using user defined datatypes may produce 2716 errors at execution time.
737733 The 12320 message, "Fatal internal error encountered when forwarding row < rowid > in table < tablename > , database < dbname > during update. Aborting the transaction" may be reported when updating a DOL row on a table defined as Page Compressed.
737762 Under rare circumstances backup server may produce unpredictable text attached to the dump trailer.
737824 The 18124 message, "No matching configuration options" may be reported when executing sp_configure "solaris async i/o mode"
737837 Shrinkpage() will raise a 631 error if the parent nonleaf page has only one nonleaf row that points to the shrinking page.
737879 When backup server is started with trace flag –D2048, the pages that have been allocated after the backup server built a list of pages to be archived and before the related allocation page is read by sybmultbuf, will be resent. Prior to dump a database one can run “SYB_BACKUP…qatraceon 105” that will add appropriate messages in the backup server error log when a resent has occurred.
737907 If the server crashes in the middle of SHRINKDB, the segmap number on sysusages table may not be updated to 0.
737933 Add option to Connect Dialog to connect to the last-used database (instead of the default database).
738007 In rare circumstances, the RepAgent thread may fail to terminate and hang in the module 'upsleepgeneric'. The execution for DBCC STACKTRACE( < RepAgent_spid > ) would indicate the RepAgent sleeping in the modules 'usctcancel' and 'ksctsuspend'.
738033 When auditing option to remove java classes is turned 'on', sp_audit stored procedure returns with a message that the option is 'off'.
738117 The message, "Current process infected with signal 11", followed by a stack trace that includes the module ssql_release() or ssql_choose_victims() may be reported in the SAP ASE error log when the statement cache is full in a high concurrency SAP ASE environment.
738189 Load dump with list_only=create_sql sometimes fails. A Unrecoverable I/O or volume error may be reported.
738196 A core dump facility is added to the sybmon configurable shared memory dump feature. This is supported only on Windows platforms.
738218 A 1209 error, "Internal Error in lock manager routine: Attempted lock upgrade from shared intent to shared table in parallel query thread is illegal", may be reported in the error log during a SELECT or SELECT-INTO query on a table with parallel plan if there are concurrent DMLs or utilities operating on the table.
738309 In rare circumstances, the task will hang when LIKE clause or patindex(builtin) operator on the columns which contain the LOB data defined as compressed.
738319 After multiple HADR failovers, new client connections to a server in the HADR group may fail with error message "Read from the server has timed out" or "There is a tds login error".
738322 Backup Server introduces a remote access control feature that prevents remote dumps and loads and execution of remote procedure calls (RPC) from any client or server running on unauthorized servers. Local dumps are not affected by this feature (NB, CR 749101 also needed if the network interface has more than one IP address). Authorization to dump or load, to or from Backup Server is achieved by including the authorized hosts in the host.allow access control file. The default location of hosts.allow file is $SYBASE. The location and name can be changed using the Backup Server parameter -h.
738367 Stored procedures using "execute as caller" with builtin functions may attempt to access objects that do not belong to the caller (but do belong to the procedure owner).
738403 The show_cached_plan_in_xml() function reports incorrect timings on the AIX platform.
738412 KBA 2114731. Increase query table limit from 50 to 255 tables.
738537 When LOAD DATABASE < dbname > WITH LISTONLY=LOAD_SQL is executed, incorrect output may be generated if the database was dumped using a dump configuration with an external API. As an example "LOAD DATABASE test FROM 'C:\Windows\system32\syb_tsm::test.DB.20130429.171214.000'" may be reported instead of "LOAD DATABASE test FROM 'syb_tsm::test.DB.20130429.171214.000'".
738538 "shutdown with nowait" may fail to shutdown the server followed by SIGSEGV stacktrace with modules ktMuxThreadGetSchedQ(), ktMuxThreadTick(), utpApplyAll(), utpmApplyAll(), kaclkintr_thread() on the stack.
738552 If a table has small compressible off-row LOB columns that are not compressed due to size or other factors, ASE RepAgent may send an incorrect text length to Replication Server causing the Replication Server to stop replicating.
738633 RepAgent may run out of memory and shutdown if started and stopped a large number of times.

750883 auto_temptable_stats will automatically generate in-memory statistics on a #temptable column on the first optimizable statement that needs statistics on that column. However, the statistics are not regenerated after a subsequent INSERT/DELETE/UPDATE or TRUNCATE table command. The optcriteria or traceflag 12801 will delete all in-memory statistics on the respective table so that up-to-date statistics will be generated on the next optimizable query referencing the respective #temptable. Note that the ase_current optimization level will not enable this functionality. In order to enable this functionality, explicitly execute "set cr750883 on", or define a user defined optgoal that includes this optcriteria, or enable trace flag 12801 on server startup.
750913 On Windows 64-bit, sp_helpdevice incorrectly reports 'unknown device type' for file system devices that are 4Gb or larger.

753175 The database level replication status may become inaccurate after changing the replication status of tables or stored procedures while the secondary truncation point is not set.
753181 The monDeviceIO table Reads column value includes the count of APF reads. The description for this column in the monTableColumns table incorrectly stated that it did not. We removed this phrase from the description of this column.
753302 When we create a table with global variable as a default and then insert a row into this table in the same batch, it will trigger a n infected with 11 (SIGSEGV) stacktrace in the SAP ASE errorolog if the insert is not cached either due to switch off due to the statement cache being disabled or by using special traceflags.
753408 Under some rare circumstance, the value of PagesTouched queried from the monCachePool MDA table is larger than AllocatedPages .
753461 A segmentation violation occurs when sp_listener starts an SSL listener where no SSL listeners had been started previously.
753525 SAP ASE running on Unix/Linux platforms only prints the top 25 stack frames in a stack overflow stacktrace report which could mask the root cause and also provide insufficient diagnostics when a stack overflow is caused by a recursive function. If the stack overflow backout code uses too much stack, the backout process can cause stack guard word corruption resulting in server shutdown. This CR removes the limitation on number of frames in the stacktrace and if the stack overflow backout code use of the stack reaches within 4K bytes of the stack boundary, it then initiates forcible termination of the task to prevent stack guardword corruption. The default value of 'stack guard size' is increased by 4K bytes to retain earlier level of stack availability. Traceflag 3687 provides a stacktrace when a transaction is aborted due to insufficient stack space that can provide additional diagnostics on stack usage by the query. Traceflag 3686 disables this change. This change is not applicable to the Microsoft Windows platform.

754679 In some cases, a DML command is not correctly replicated because SAP ASE Replication Agent may mistakenly generate the table schema definition for metadata reduction for a table that is marked for replication. Schema building is needed when the table is created or altered in the same user transaction as the DML which affects the same table.
754736 When starting an SAP ASE server up with hundreds of engines, the CPU utilization is high and the server seems to hang.
754753 Alter table move partition can fail with error 326 (ALTER TABLE ' < table name > ' failed.

755330 When using LDAP, an assertion message and a SIGABRT/SIGIOT (infected with 6) stacktrace may be reported in the SAP ASE errorlog. The assertion will say "result == SYBCSI_RESULT_OK, file core/source/csimemory.c". The stacktrace will include the function login__ldapauth().
755333 The Sybmon 'stack all' command may hit signal 11 because of reference to null pointer.
755424 When RepAgent is configured for Multiple Paths Replication and verbose LTL traces are active through Repagent traces 9201, 9227 and 9228, a SIGSEGV may occur together with a stack trace showing the module ra__sender_ltl_cmds.
755454 When migrating from SAP ASE 15.5, Sybmigrate fails at report session and shows the error: There are still external logins for the server 'mtrs$999'.
755465 Dynamic SQL with LOB parameter which results in a character set conversion for a single, very, very large text field can raise a 712 error (out of heap memory). Avoidance of the 712 error involves using a workaround that avoids the large text field character set conversion altogether. When the error is invoked by a Java program, instead of by batch mode processing there can be a large memory leak of the heap memory for the connection. That memory leak is addressed by this CR.
755473 The DUMP DATABASE command may hang when run concurrently with a many other tasks if the option 'optimize dump for faster load' is set to a non zero value.
755520 An "infected with 11 (SIGSEGV) may occur in LeScanOp::LeGetScanInd (called from LeOrScanContext::getNextVtup) when the SAP ASE configuration option 'streamlined dynamic SQL' is turned on and the query contains ORed joins and one of the outer table's join columns contains a NULL value.

The message "Open Server error: Error: 16330, State: 0, Severity 15 -- 'Pass-through is incomplete for spid: < number > '. RSCIOCSDisconnectHandler: consumer not up. Exiting due to a fatal error." will be reported in the Replication Server error log.
756143 Stack overflow may occur which would terminate the server, instead of the offending session. This may occur if the stack is insufficient and there are a large number of tables in the FROM lists of the query.
756199 Applying update statistics in parallel mode on a HADR configured standby generates stacktrace and fails.
756274 When reporting on the dump header of a dump that was taken with a higher SAP ASE version that has used new metadata in the dump, an error 3264, "The dump header contains device information with invalid token length ...", possibly followed by errors such as 3208 “Unexpected end of file while reading beginning of dump...” will be reported. An unknown element warning message will now be reported instead.
756284 When there are nested subqueries with invariant materialization steps in each respective subquery, it is possible that a signal 11 can occur.
756321 The message "Invalid column length: < num > . Value must be between 0 and 255 at offset 0 for 'data-only' row with minimum row length of 70." together with a stack trace including the modules 'collocate' and 'ra__new_schema' may be reported if a row for a replicated table with a name of the maximum length (255 char) created by a user with a name of the maximum length (30 char) is encountered by Replication Agent.
756412 internal only: wrong cfg file name was created if make an overlay installation with ASE16.0GA.
756437 A statement that inserts into a table with an identity column and references a view or derived table that contains a union-all that terminates a union statement may generate a 264 error (duplicate column id) if the identity value is implicitly generated (i.e. - not explicitly provided in the insert's value list).
756574 When dbcc page(dbid,pageno, opt) searches the desired page in deleted cache, causing sig 11.

756631 A 644 error, "Index row entry for data row id ( < pageid > , < rnum > ) is missing from index page < index_pagenum > of index id < indid > of table ' < tablename > ' in database ' < dbname > '. Xactid is ( < xactid > ). Drop and re-create the index." may sometimes be reported in heavily concurrent systems using DATAROWS LOCKED or DATAPAGES LOCKED tables.
756646 Replication Agent running on 'stream replication' mode may shutdown with the error 'Error: 9219, Severity: 20, State: 66' after a re-connection attempt.
756648 A 213 error, "Insert error: column name or number of supplied values does not match table definition." may be reported in a stored procedure, when deferred compilation is active, if a column is added to a table and there is a dependency on "select * " behavior to ignore the extra column. Trace flag 7798 will ignore this error if deferred compilation is turned on and allow normal compilation to process the statement. If normal compilation still sees an inconsistency, or some other activity causes re-resolution of the stored procedure, then errors may be still be reported.
756819 Arithmetic overflow occurred in procedure 'sp_sysmon_kernel'.
756854 Executing sp_help / sp_helpartition when online reorg / online create index is in its final phase (Blocking Logical Synchronization), may cause deadlock.
756875 When executing a DUMP command with more than one VERIFY option, the backup server will ignore all but the last one. Also, on Windows platform, if the archive is bigger than 4GB and we are executing WITH VERIFY=READ_AFTER_WRITE or VERIFY=CRC and the verification fails when reading a block that is at an offset greater than 4GB, the error message will report an offset value that is only the two lower bytes of the actual offset, for example "There was a failure decompressing < # > bytes at offset 804831240 when processing stripe ' < the stripe name > '" instead of the offset value for 5099798536.
756894 The error message 7786 has been updated to include the server user name.

757251 Add 'Proc Cache Header' diagnostic enhancements for the block pool to capture the time spent in bitmap scanning and collect memory allocation/free patterns. These diagnostics are disabled by default.
757258 When displaying configuration values for Replication Agent using the sp_help_rep_agent procedure the 'rs_servername' displays only the first 30 characters.
757301 When a 331 error occurs or there are long query optimization times or large procedure cache usage occurs in the optimization phase, then this may be due to the optimizer not pruning subplans in the search space as early as possible. Improve pruning can be turned on with optcriteria cr757301, or by using ase_current with optimization level of at least ase157sp130. Trace flag 16992 will turn off the optimization even if the optcriteria is enabled.
757310 Cannot use syconfig to do backup server upgrade on Windows 64bit
757323 The MDA table monRepSyncTaskStatistics that provides statistics on (near) synchronous replication, will report information erroneously when the current replication mode is asynchronous.
757393 KBA 2115255. If SAP ASE is upgraded from pre 16.0 to 16.0, then dbcc tune(volatile,4, < table name > ) or alter table < table name > set index_compression = page for the existing table may raise error 12859 like Column sysobjects.sysstat4 has length '0', should be '1'. The sysobjects row is for database ' < db name > ' (db id), object ' < object name > ' (object id).

757649 A 4720 error, "Cannot truncate table < tablename > because there are one or more isolation level 0 scans, or REORG command, active on the table", may be reported during a TRUNCATE TABLE command while level 0 scans are active. This new feature is enabled when the new configuration option 'enable utility lvl 0 scan wait' is set.
757824 When running in SAP ASE process mode under heavy load in a multiengine environment, an engine may become CPU bound when handling network cancel requests arising from attentions received either from the client or from kill commands. In the event that the network listener was on the run queue of the engine which has become CPU bound as above, it may be impossible to establish new logins to the server.
757829 Incorrect hash partition elimination may lead to incorrect results when there is an OR predicate on the partition column(s)
757850 When running on a table with thousands of partitions, create local nonclustered index or placement index command may fail due to stack overflow with no error message printed.
757867 In rare circumstances, checkstorage or sp_dbcc_alterws might not expand the scan/text workspace to the size suggested by sp_plan_dbccdb or specified value.
757883 When a user invokes DDLGen from a script and wishes to hide the password by supplying the pseudo password (-Pext) and including the actual password in a file or setting in an environment variable, the error "DG16: Could not get Console instance" is reported.
757895 Support Quoted Identifiers on session temporary tables. This requires that the configuration parameter "quoted identifier enhancements" is set and the session level option "quoted_identifiers" is on.

758109 During upgrade from pre-16.0 to 16.0, if the older server's max memory configuration is very close to the amount required by that server, ASE 16.0 can report that max memory is not sufficient. If that happens, ASE 16.0 will not start.
758119 The message, "Current process infected with signal 11", followed by a stack trace that includes the module LeExecuteWorkUnits(), may be reported in the error log during execution of query plans that use both the 'dynamic thread assignment' and 'parallel index update'.
758144 1) If SAP ASE is installed as an overlay, sybatch will reset the XP Server port to default during upgrade. 2) sybatch requires user to specify sqlsrv.master_device_physical_name, sqlsrv.master_device_size, sqlsrv.master_db_size and sqlsrv.application_type which are not really needed in upgrade. 3) sybatch recreates the XP Server Windows service even if it doesn't exist for the old server.
758214 The message, "Current process infected with signal 11", followed by a stack trace that includes the module s_recompile() may be reported in the error log when a table schema change happens after processing the first row, and before finishing the second row of an dynamic batch INSERT.
758249 When upgrading to SAP ASE 16.0, the upgrade utility will report error 4243, "DUMP TRANSACTION WITH NO_LOG or DUMP TRANSACTION WITH TRUNCATE_ONLY is not allowed in database ' < dbname > ' while the 'enforce dump tran sequence' database option is enabled." if a database has option "enforce dump tran sequence" set.
758260 In rare circumstances, a 8201 error "Keep count of descriptor (objid= < value > , dbid= < value > ) was expected to be 1. Instead 2 was found." together with a stack trace which includes the modules 'ptn__pdes_scavenge' and 'open_user_table' may be reported in the error log when SAP ASE attempts to reuse a descriptor and an online utility such as 'truncate partition' had been previously used. In the SAP ASE error log the message "Increase the config parameter 'number of open partitions' to avoid descriptor reuse. Reuse may result in performance degradation." would have been also reported.
758297 Skip blank lines in the dump history file when searching for the version record. If an invalid version record is found, initialize the history file after copying the file to a backup.
758328 A poor index may be chosen for a join, if the selectivity of previous joins is estimated to be 0 rows (likely caused by a predicate selecting an 0.0 weight range cell in the histogram). The optcriteria avoid_zero_weight_histograms or trace flag 16991 will adjust selectivity estimates so that at least one row will be selected when joining histograms. Note that ase_current will not enable this functionality, and that "set avoid_zero_weight_histograms on", a user defined optgoal which includes avoid_zero_weight_histograms or trace flag 16991 is needed.
758340 Creation of temporary tables in a large number of concurrent user sessions leads to a high number of accesses to syslogins.
758349 DDL commands within prepared statements can now be replicated.
758353 When using data encryption functionality on Windows platforms, encryption operations can make an engine stall for short periods of time.

758774 The Job Scheduler may fail to start after setting the minimum password length using sp_passwordpolicy to a value greater than the value of the minimum password length set by sp_configure.
758796 KBA 2006614. If a database and objects within the database are bound to different caches, ASE could run into SIGSEGV issue when it performs encryption/decryption on the database.
758809 Supplying the Rep Agent 'connect dataserver' property with a value longer than 30 characters causes memory corruption which leads to connection failure or other unpredictable behavior depending on the size and content of the longer value.
758868 Under a heavily used replication environment and in rare circumstances the Rep Agent schema cache and the Rep Agent memory pool can run out of memory because of a memory leak issue.
758938 When a process that is executing a DUMP DATABASE command is killed either using the KILL command or using CTRL-C or the SQL session goes away, the Backup Server will not release its associated resources until it finishes copying the whole database. One of the consequences is that the archive devices can remain locked for a long time because the sybmultbuf processes stay alive.
758959 In rare circumstances, when the MDA table monProcessProcedures is being used, an infected with 11 (SIGSEGV) error along with a stacktrace may be logged in the SAP ASE errorlog . This is a similar situation as addressed by CR 754648 (which covered monProcessStatement).
758961 syconfig.exe/sybatch.exe and sqlupgrade[res] needs to install Job scheduler stored procedures and templates when upgrading the ASE server.
758973 A SIGSEGV (infected with 11) can be logged in the SAP ASE errorlog on the Windows platform if the loginfo() built-in is called with three parameters and for whatever reason the built-in returns an error.
759012 A 614 error - "Adaptive Server accessed a row that has an illegal length of < n > while in data base ' < dbname > '. < page info > . The minimum row length is < n > . The page size is < n > ." may be reported when executing DBCC CHECKDB on an unencrypted database that is encrypted first and then decrypted.
759041 Support online parallel create index.
759142 When UPDATE STATISTICS is performed on a character column with a non-binary character set, and in addition UPDATE STATISTICS uses the consumers phrase, then there is the possibility of many small weight frequency cells following a zero weight range cell. This may cause poor query plan selection if a predicate selects a zero weight histogram cell. Optcriteria cr759142 will avoid generation of small frequency cells following a zero weight range cell, when the consumers phrase is used in UPDATE STATISTICS to generate stats on a mostly unique non-binary character set column.
759143 A poor query plan might be selected when parallel UPDATE STATISTICS (for instance using the consumers phrase) is used to gather statistics. After installing SAP ASE with the fix for this issue, update statistics will need to be run on affected tables.
759188 KBA 2013610. The message, "Current process infected with signal 11", followed by a stack trace that includes the module sendtext() may be reported in the error log when a MERGE JOIN is being used and if the inner table has in-row LOB columns with NULL values.
759245 If there are equality predicates or joins which are used for index keys, then occasionally an index which has few positioning keys specified than another index will be chosen. If 2 indexes have only equality predicates or equality joins used for keys, then a heuristic is added to choose the index with more limiting keys if those keys cover all the limiting and filtering keys of another index. The optcriteria EQUALS_SCAN_SUPERSET and trace flag 16989 will apply the heuristic to index scan which are not the inner of a nested loop join. The optcriteria EQUALS_NLJOIN_SCAN_SUPERSET and trace flag 16990 will apply the heuristics to all index scans. Note that the optcriteria are not turned on by any optgoal, and a SET command, user defined optgoal, or trace flag is needed to enable the heuristic.
759270 In rare cases, when a transaction rolls back, it may hit error 623 when starting the backward scan on a page. The 623 error message will indicate that the Rid pageid = 0; row num = 0.

759501 Allow the command LOAD WITH VERIFYONLY to be executed using less stripes than the number used at DUMP time.
759528 REORG command has been changed such that it cannot be executed while encryption or decryption of database is in progress.
759562 Add support creation of a global index in parallel for a partitioned table that has one or more empty partitions. Previously, when creating a global index on partition table, if there were any empty partitions, then the index would be created in serial.
759590 When SAP ASE is upgraded and the higher version server writes a new configuration file after upgrade is complete, then under some circumstances that configuration file may contain entries that were unexpectedly changed from what the older version server originally configured.
759624 On ASE Cluster Edition insert jobs may unexpectedly continue to run with no new rows inserted into the target table. There are NO lost inserts but, dbcc checkalloc or tablealloc may report Msg 2546 or we may encounter deadlocks which can be seen in the error log.
759637 The message, "Current process infected with signal 11", followed by a stack trace that includes the module LeScanOp::_LeOpNext() may be reported in the error log when an online utility (e.g. REORG REBUILD) is in progress on a table that contains forwarded rows.
759646 Arithmetic overflow may occur when executing the stored procedure sp_sysmon_locks.
759679 When 'net password encryption reqd' set to 1, charset/langinstall will run into 1640 (Adaptive Server requires encryption of the login password on the network) and 4002 (Login failed) errors.
759728 CREATE TABLE commands may not perform well in situations where a lot of CREATE TABLE commands are run in parallel and the SAP ASE configuration has 'enable inline default sharing' set.
759748 On Microsoft Windows platforms, SAP ASE messages may be incorrectly logged in the Windows Event Log.

The option 'allow incremental dumps' will be disabled because SAP ASE cannot continue recording page modifications", can be raised if the table SYSDAMS gets the very first extent of an allocation unit allocated.
760176 Optcriteria equals_scan_superset and avoid_zero_weight_histograms are associated with the ase157sp130 optimization level. Previously, a user defined optgoal needed to be defined to enable these optcriteria (or trace flags 16989 and 16991 respectively).
760187 The index ID is incorrectly reported as 0 in the SAP ASE error message number 12301, "Internal error: the index (id = < ID > ) and the data for row ( < page > , < row > ) in table ' < table > ', database < db > are inconsistent; data is marked deleted but index is not.

760751 A parallel query may be rejected during execution because the worker thread pool has fewer threads available than the minimum number of threads required to execute the plan. In this case, the query should be sent back to be recompiled in serial mode. However, the query will be recompiled in parallel mode and then fails during execution again if it contains a plan-clause with the following directive "(use optgoal allrows_dss)". At this point a 225 error, "Cannot run query--referenced object (name NAME NOT RECOVERABLE) dropped during query optimization", is raised because the procedure buffer object is missing.
760781 When there is no active transaction in a database, running select loginfo('dbname','stp_pages') will give the result of 0 even if the secondary truncation page is not the same as the last log page.

To workaround the problem the end-user can set the trace flag 3022 (either via the command line or by using dbcc traceon or by using SET SWITCH ON ignore_trailer_ckpt) before loading the database.
760910 KBA 2014957. In rare circumstances, when a partitioned table has a local index and partition lock is enabled, SAP Adaptive Server may hit error 12212 during an index scan, if a committed transaction deletes few rows from a partition that cause deallocation of extent (say X) and a uncommitted transaction inserts rows in another partition, cause allocation of same extent(X). After hitting 12212 error SAP ASE terminates the connection and logs a stacktrace in the SAP error log. Error 12212 " Internal Error: The partition ID ( < ID > ) of the lock does not match the partition ID ( < ID > ) of the new request on this lock. dbid= < DB_ID > , objid= < OBJ_ID > , pageno= < Page number > , rowno= < Row Number > locktype= < lock type > ".

764060 The message "current process infected with 11" in the module 'ubffreef' together with a stack trace which includes the modules 'ra_free_mempool' and 'ra__schema_dealloc_obj' may be reported in the error log preceded by a 9685 error, "Rep Agent on database ' < dbname > ' switched from mode 'sync' to mode 'async' because timer on commit expired.", when SAP Adaptive Server Rep Agent is configured to use streaming replication in either near-sync or sync mode. This will result in SAP Adaptive Server to shutdown implicitly.
764074 The "Alter thread pool" command may cause an infected with 11 (SIGSEGV) along with a stacktrace that references the function rvm_dispatch() to be reported in the SAP ASE errorlog.
764121 The showplan in xml utility could return the strings "Sort (Build)" and "Sort (GetSorted)" for the splitSort operator. These strings generate an XML parser error when running a query that qualifies XML using xmltest.
764158 If the secondary truncation point is enabled on the master database on a pre 16.0 server installation, and then 16.0 server is booted against the installation without having followed the required SAP ASE 16.0 upgrade steps (run preupgrade first), then the SAP ASE 16.0 server will fail to boot. The pre SAP ASE 16.0 version will then also fail to boot with the following messages being reported in the ASE 160 errorlog: "server Opening Master Database ..." and "kernel The secondary truncation point is turned on in the master database. Please use your older ASE version to turn the secondary truncation point off before using this ASE version".
764186 KBA 2109838. In rare circumstances, the message "current process infected with 11" (SIGSEGV) in the module 'dpdb__dflpurge' together with a stack trace may be reported in the error log followed by the message "Spinlocks held by kpid ... Resource- > rdbt_ext_spin" resulting in SAP ASE shutting down implicitly during the execution of a DUMP DATABASE command and while the configuration option "optimize dump for faster load" is set to 1.
764274 In some cases when updates is executed concurrently with DROP PARTITION, MERGE PARTITION or TRUNCATE PARTITION PLM utilities. updates convert to delete + insert.
764288 Under a rare condition, if compatibility mode is enabled and when trying to delete a row from a table which has IN ROW LOB, error msg 605 "An attempt was made to fetch logical page ' < n > ' from cache ' < name > '. Page belongs to < ptninfo1 > and not to < ptninfo2 > ." could be reported.
764402 KBA 2053674. A 692 error, "Uninitialized logical page ' < value > ' was read while accessing database 'value', object '' (99), index ' < Unknown > ' (0), partition ' < Unknown > ' (99)." may be reported during the execution of either ALTER or CREATE DATABASE command when the "FOR LOAD" option is used and while the database is larger than 63 GB. This may be followed by the message "current process infected with 11" in the module 'buf_cleanup_write_queue' together with a stack trace in the SAP ASE error log which includes the modules 'terminate_process' and 'quitfn'.
764437 KBA 2021875. A 2956 error, "Unable to grab a buffer to encrypt logical page < page_num > in database < db_id > . Increase the size of the buffer pool in the buffer cache < cache_name > ", may be raised to report buffer shortage when large transactions are executed on an encrypted database.
764438 There is a potential for high statement cache spinlock contention when the statement cache is full and all/most of the statements are pinned by a SPID. This may result in significant system sluggishness. Dumping the monitor counters shows that proc_ssql_not_found is relatively high while proc_ssql_procs_available is relatively low for an interval in addition to the SSQL_CACHE spinlock counters being high and possibly negative due to overflow.
764448 Support the migration of ASE stored procedure to HANA procedure
764509 Modularize output from sp_help, sp_helpindex and sp_helpartition to provide terse output which is useful for tables and indexes with large number of partitions.
764543 Backup Server may log false page verification errors with a message "Incorrect column type in the offset table of row x in page xxx of object ID xxxxxxxx." when executing dump database command with verify = full on a database with 'allow wide dol rows' turned on.
764623 KBA 2020850 . When performing a dictionary decompress for varchar column with character encoding, SAP ASE may report a 9829 error - " Compressed data row < rowid > in objid < objid > , dbid < dbid > is corrupted."
764630 Checkpoint sleeps on buffer in encrypted db
764801 Under an HADR environment the current task may hang forever in the log drain phase of the deactivation process if the SAP ASE Replication Agent is unable to connect to the SAP Replication Server during the execution of 'sp_hadr_admin deactivate'.
764830 When the advanced_aggregation optcriteria is used (typically this occurs when the optimization goal is allrows_dss), then there is a possibility of a wrong answer when a SUM, or AVG aggregate is used on an exact numeric datatype column.
764843 When 2-phased sort execution plan (i.e. with SORTBUILD and GETSORTED operators) was chosen, Dynamic Thread Assignment (DTA) was causing exceptions in Linux platform due to synchronization issues supposedly due to thread migration. DTA would internally be disabled for such queries with 2-phased sort which might prevent performance gain for the queries that benefit from DTA.
764862 The message text for error 3543 is enhanced to include the database id value such as "One or more entries in the data segment free space counts in database ID %d was found to be negative and has been set to 0."
764924 The errors 'Object id wrong' or 'Page mismatch' can be mistakenly reported by DUMP WITH VERIFY if the system is very busy while the database dump is in progress.
764953 fact table hint may lead to less optimal plan with huge table ( > = 1 billion rows).
765065 The MDA table monRepSyncTaskStatistics is enhanced by adding new monitor columns that provide information on the time spend in the transaction commit processing when using streaming replication in (near) sync mode.
765074 A 2546 error: "Table Corrupt: Extent id < extid > on allocation pg# < pg
