2661920 - Targeted CR List for ASE 16.0 SP02 PL08

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

807823 Empty PLC (Private Log Cache) blocks with only a BEGIN TRANSACTION log record present are flushed to syslogs during DUMP DATABASE when the database option 'allow incremental dumps' is enabled, or the database was created with the 'INMEMORY' option. This will prevent the transaction log truncation from taking place when a transaction is still open.
808160 The execution of SP_SETREPTABLE by an unauthorized user should fail with a 18418 error, "Only the System Administrator (SA), the Database Owner (dbo) or a user with REPLICATION authorization may execute this stored procedure", as opposed to a 567 error, "You must have the following role(s) to execute this command/procedure: 'sa_role'.

815217 In rare circumstances, a storage access violation or the message, "Current process infected with signal 11 (SIGSEGV)" followed by a stack trace that includes the modules 'ubffreef', 'memfreeheap' and 'table__check', may be reported in the SAP ASE error log when running DBCC CHECKTABLE against system tables like SYSCOMMENTS where there are hidden columns.
815238 An 15413 error, "An internal error occurred during an encryption operation (error code -1)", may be reported when selecting data from views that contain encrypted columns where each view is created with the UNION ALL clause. See KBA 2651130.
815342 A SELECT query against the monSysLoad MDA table can return zero row if a search argument on EngineNumber or StatisticID is used with an engine number other than engine 0. See KBA 2651421.
815367 In rare circumstances, DUMP DATATBASE may take extra time while releasing memory pages that keep track of page updates since the dump has started, after the dump is completed if the configuration option 'optimize dump for faster load’ is enabled. See KBA 2657654
815496 Under rare circumstances the free page count for database segment 0 (system) may become negative and not reset to 0 without a message reported in the SAP ASE error log indicating this negative free page count. See KBA 2686750.
815548 In rare circumstances, a 631 error, "The length of < value > passed to delete row routine for the row at offset < value > is incorrect on the following page of database ' < name > ': Page pointer = < value > , pageno = < value > ... The expected row length is < value > . The offset should be no greater than < value > .", may be reported in the SAP ASE error log followed by the message, "Error while undoing log row in database ' < name > '. Rid pageid = < value > ; row num = < value > .", during the roll back of a user transaction when the syslogs available space has crossed the last chance threshold and the session was explicitly killed. This may result in phantom locks left behind because of the roll back failing. See KBA 2660763.
815581 A 11060 message, "This statement has exceeded the maximum number of recompilations (20). This indicates an internal error. Please note the error prior to this one and contact SAP Technical Support", may be reported during workload replay with the "Reset server time to source workload capture time" option selected and a VIEW, that is created after the workload captured time, is accessed. See KBA 2661224.
815594 Under some circumstances, the output from executing the sp_opt_querystats procedure with the 'option_show_long' option may have malformed text with random newline breaks over some words.
815608 In rare circumstances, the message, "Current process infected with 11 (SIGSEGV)" in the module 'dol__index_decompress_row' together with a stack trace which includes the modules 'bulk_fast_idxupdate' and 'reorg_defrag', may be reported in the SAP ASE error log when REORG DEFRAG is run. See SAP Note 2665483.
815610 A 9414 error, "RepAgent( < dbid > ): Streaming replication < value > CI Library error < value > with severity < value > and message ' < failure_reason > '. Rep Agent detected error < value > with message 'Unknown' at line at line 0 in file nofilename." may be reported in the SAP ASE error log when the stream replication is enabled and an error has occurred in an HADR setup. The code is enhanced to report appropriate line number and file name values to help diagnose the code path taken when the problem was encountered. See KBA 2686789.
815662 The message, "Current process infected with signal 11 (SIGSEGV)" in the module 'EquivClass::EquivClass' together with a stack trace that includes the modules 'EquivClass::eqcCheapestNonBmoSortPop', 'EquivClass::eqcEagerEnforce' and 'GttTable::GttUsefulIndex', may be reported in the SAP ASE error log when selecting from a table-valued UDF using Parallel Mode. See KBA 2663557.
815677 Non thread-safe time routines are used to construct up the stripe names when DUMP DATABASE or DUMP TRANSACTION is executed with the option "using config= < dump_configuration > ".
815681 Performing a downgrade from SAP ASE 16.0 SP02 PL05 or higher to a version prior to SAP ASE 16.0 SP02 may report a failure on 'sysobjects.sysstat5' and 'sysindexes.status4' columns for replicated tables having a unique index. See KBA 2664693.
815803 The message, "Current process infected with signal 11 (SIGSEGV)" in the module 'ubffreef' followed by a stack trace that includes the modules 'ufclose', 'dir_sendtext' and 'DIRRemoteAccess::sendText', may be reported in the SAP ASE errorlog during concurrent access of big files via a proxy table. See KBA 2672421.
815811 Executing 'REORG REBUILD < table name > < index name > ' where the index has latch_free_index enabled may result in various errors including 12314, 12323, 820, 872, 11068 at run time and a 3478 error during recovery. See KBA 2669056.
815833 A query, which is selecting from a view with a left outer join and a predicate in where clause, and the view definition contains a subquery in 'When exists' which is wrapped in 'case' clause and a left outer join is used, may return wrong results which don't take the predicate into account. See KBA 2690931.
815844 When SAP ASE encounters a secondary signal violation while dealing with a primary signal violation, it makes the process that hit these signal violations a zombie process. SAP ASE will now shut down implicitly instead and the message, "UNHANDLED EXCEPTION: signal in signal handler", will be reported in the SAP ASE error log. When required it is possible to retain the zombie process behavior by starting SAP ASE with the trace flag 2917 or enabling it at run time using DBCC TRACEON. See KBA 2682383.
815944 In rare circumstances on an HADR setup, the message “current process infected with 11 (SIGSEGV)” together with a stack trace which includes the modules ‘ra_free_mempool’ and ‘ra_dealloc_ra_xact’ may be reported in the SAP ASE error log when synchronous replication is enabled.
815945 The message, "Current process infected with signal 11 (SIGSEGV)" in the module 'prot_pcr_get_perms' followed by a stack trace that includes the modules 'rvm_dispatch' and 'rvm_cfgadm_check_access', may be reported in SAP ASE error log when granular permission is enabled and any Non-Volatile cache configuration command is executed using sp_nvcacheconfig, sp_nvbindcache or with sp_sysmon. See KBA 2671978.
816000 A 15101 message, "There is insufficient memory to allocate < n > bytes. Please increase configuration parameter 'messaging memory', or try again when there is less activity on the server." may be reported when a large value has been set for the configuration parameter 'messaging memory' and real time messaging queries are executed in multiple concurrent sessions. See KBA 2674952.
816025 The message, "A fatal error has been detected by the SAP Java Virtual Machine: EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION (0xc0000005)", together with the error message, "NTPCI__exit(1); Native Thread failed to unwind while attempting to shutdown the PCI", may be reported in the SAP ASE error log when loading sunec.dll on Windows platforms. See KBA 2687973.
816028 Update the description of parameter "--upgrade-ok" to make clearer what it does.
816078 In rare circumstances under an HADR setup, the coordinator process of SAP ASE RepAgent may hang in the module 'ra__ci_coordinator_waits_for_switch_ack' preventing the replication flow to continue.
816352 The message, "Current process infected with signal 11 (SIGSEGV)" in the module 'yylex' together with a stack trace which includes the modules 'sqlpars' and 'internal_sql' may be reported in the SAP ASE error log when many whitespace characters appear in the query text following a SQL keyword, resulting in a zombie task or the ASE unexpectedly shuts down. See KBA 2686240.
