Hello everybody,

we are running SQL Anywhere 17 ( as a MobiLink consolidated on a Windows machine and the operating system crashed. After starting windows again, the database does not start anymore. We get the following message:

*** ERROR *** Assertion failed: 106200 (

Unable to undo index changes during rollback

We tried to start the db without log (-f), but did not work either. Any idea what could be done to get the db back up and running?

Thanks for the help and best regards, Alex

Other than trying with the newest v17 EBF ( on Windows AFAIK) if that can recover the current database, I guess "[use the] back up and [go] running" with applying the current log should be the way to go...

It would ideal to get to a later SP as we have added additional diagnostic information to the assertion. The SP should be build 4148 or later. This will not address the assertion but will provide more information about the problem encountered. This change is Engineering Case #813493.
