2705438 - During QUIESCE HOLD a transaction in master raises Error: 2238, Severity: 20, State: 9 - ASE


  • The master database is quiesced:  quiesce database master_tag hold master  
          server QUIESCE DATABASE command with tag tag_master is being executed by process 478
          server Process 478 successfully executed QUIESCE DATABASE with HOLD option for tag tag_master.
          server Processes trying to issue an I/O operation on the quiesced database(s) will be suspended until the user executes a   
          QUIESCE DATABASE command with the RELEASE option.
  • A second user process in the master database opens a transaction while master is quiesced. The transaction is blocked and placed in lock sleep until the quiesce is released.
          Your query is blocked because it tried to start a transaction in the 'master' database which is in a quiesced state. Your query will proceed after the DBA
  • At a later point in time, while the quiesce is still active and the second process is in lock sleep the following server error is logged:
          server Error: 2238, Severity: 20, State: 9
          server begin lock: Could not acquire LOCK INTERRUPTED due to invalid pointer param number 6, pointer value 0x0
