We're running SqlAnywhere 17 (). Sometimes the server crashes and we don't know why.

The database startup string looks like this : -x TCPIP{} -gc 20 -gl all -gp 32768 -ti 0 -c 60p -m -xs HTTPS(FIPS=n;PORT=1234;MaxRequestSize=0;IDENTITY=identity_file.pem;IDENTITY_PASSWORD=****) -ec NONE -nSYBASE_SERVER "D:\DB\database.db" -oe "d:\DB\errorlog.txt"

We've analyzed the crash dumps and they all point to the same point : sapcrypto.dll Here's the dump:

Followup: MachineOwner

We think it has something to do with the certificate but there's no evidence for it. No errorlogs are generated when the server crashes, no eventlogs are generated. Only these crashdumps.

Anybody any idea?

Kind regards, Roel Schlijper

Just an assumption: sapcrypto library can be updated to a newer version (it it exists)

Vlad's suggestion is probably a lot easier, but if it doesn't help, c0000005 (Access violation) may be a bug and you should call SAP tech support.

Clarification: The above image refers to front line tech support only, not the folks in Waterloo.
