SQL Anywhere Network Server Version 188.8.131.5204
This is not actually a question, just documentation of an issue we have found.
I was restoring from a incremental backup log file in which some DDL operations were performed. These operation were passed through using SQL Remote to a full subscription which runs under ASA 184.108.40.20651.
The DDL operations were executed on the production databases both consolidated and remote without error.
When the log files were applied via the standard restore command to the 12.0.1 and 9.0.2 offsite backup files the 9.0.2 restored without issue, the 12.0.1 failed reporting
This also created a Internal Error report which I have sent to SAP using the "Send Error Report" option, always wondered what happened to these...
I'm not entirely sure why I'm reporting this since most users no longer have access to the EBF's but maybe someone else can benefit from this information.
This is I believe the second issue I have reported with 12.0.1 recovery, we have had others. I believe these issues as well as the permissions issues we see ( other posts ) in 12.0.1 are reason enough to keep the EBF's available.
As a user since the Watcom days and someone who loves the ASA or SQL Anywhere product I am sorry to see the direction taken as of late. I am considering alternatives which I never thought I would. Is anyone interested in developing an open source message based replication alternative based on an open source database? I am.
