The forum will experience an outage sometime between February 10 at 7:00pm EST and February 12 at 11:59 EST for installation of security updates. The actual time and duration of the outage are unknown but attempts will be made to minimize the downtime. We apologize for any inconvenience.


Testing of the production application indicates the V16 calling server can become unresponsive in a few minutes when the failing remote server connection uses DRIVER=Adaptive Server Anywhere 9.0 or earlier, but it will run for hours without problems when DRIVER=SQL Anywhere 10 or later (connect after 5 seconds, timeout after 15 seconds, drop, repeat, looping through 30 remote servers).

Production tests have been run using V7, V8, V9, V10 and V16 DRIVER values.

Work is now proceeding on a simple reproducible. Motivation: I can ignore this somewhat obscure problem with V5.5 targets... but not Version 9! ...that version is still in heavy rotation out here in RealVille! :


The specific question is, "Why does dbsrv16 build 1915 crash in dbl50t.dll when using SERVER class SAODBC?"

But it's not just V5.5...

During testing of multiple failing (database not found, etc) server class SAODBC connections to V5.5 through V16 remote databases, the calling dbsrv16 server on Windows 7 frequently becomes unresponsive or shuts down altogether with NO diagnostics, with the following single exception: a Windows 7 event (see also the attached *.evtx file).

The unresponsive/shut down symptom ALSO occurs when V5.5 is NOT involved, this just happens to be the only diagnostic available (no console log messages, no dumps, nothing)...

Loading the Y-DLL library from your SQL Any 5.5.05 installation would not be a normal action.

What ODBC driver does your 9.0 DSN use? {vers.&build of course}

If need be we can look into this more. Can you provide the dump file that is generated? {with -md full?}

Alas, no dumps on that day, if I'm looking in the right place: C:\Users\All Users\SQL Anywhere 16\diagnostics

The V9 remote server connections are done with DSN-less connection strings ENG=ddd9dummy1; DBN=ddd9dummy1; UID=dba; PWD=sql; DRIVER=Adaptive Server Anywhere 9.0; LINKS=TCPIP(HOST=;

The 32-bit ODBC Administrator says the V9 ODBC driver is (yes, the bin32 version of dbsrv16 is being used for all these tests).

Work continues on the reproducible, which has morphed into an application that needs it's OWN reproducibles... until that happens, it's a waste of your time (enjoy the summer-like sunshine while it lasts :)

What is -md full?
