2203862 - Targeted CR List for ASE 16.0 SP01 PL03

Symptom

The purpose of this KBA is to help SAP customers obtain a general idea of potential fixed situations in future Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE) EBF/SP or PL releases. Please be sure to read the Disclaimer below.

If the EBF/SP has been released, check the CR list and coverletter at the service.sap.com.

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
393424 KBA 2159644 - 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.
684701 The "for xml" clause is being stripped off from the text which is saved in syscomments. This causes the procedure output to change unexpectedly (output is no longer in XML format) following upgrade.
693491 A transient 605 error may be raised by a query against a table(lock scheme datarows) having des_bind and REORG REBUILD has just been done. Please use dbcc tune(des_unbind,dbid, objname) to unbind the object before REORG REBUILD to avoid the error.

775572 The 12334 error, "Attempts to read logical page `%ld`, virtpage `%ld` from virtual device `%d` for %S_PTNINFO failed due to read failure in prefetch.

Moreover SAP Business Suite applications can run into data consistency errors since SAP Business Suite does not reapply lost transactions when error 3957 is raised. The expected behavior is that active transactions will not be interrupted when sap_failover < site1 > , < site2 > , < timeout_in_seconds > is run.
