Bug IDDescription
466609 Repartitioned exchange can cause poor performance and in some cases we do not need to incur that performance penalty. Instead, it can be handled during a selective index scan, provided the column on which the data needs to be partitioned is part of the index.
475469 Message 4207 Dump transaction is not allowed because a non-logged operation was performed on the database will be raised if the SELECT INTO EXISTING TABLE syntax is used even if the SELECT INTO / BULK COPY dboption is turned off. The SELECT INTO EXISTING syntax was meant for internal use and not intended to be documented or used by end-users.
488602 Enable memusage and enhance who command in sybmon
491727 In rare circumstances, after HA-failover, message "infected with signal 11" in module 'astc__h_ase_sendrpc' may be reported in the errorlog along with a stacktrace.

628124 In ASE Cluster Edition, server may hang under rare circumstances while running utilities like ALTER TABLE.
628597 In a shared disk cluster system, poor performance of failover recovery can result from an unnecessarily large number of disk writes that are performed when recalaculating OAM counts at the end of the failover recovery redo pass.
629475 A 225 error, "Cannot run query--referenced object (name NAME NOT RECOVERABLE) dropped during query optimization." may be reported when running a SELECT INTO from a view that had to be internally recreated from its source text, for example, because the database was upgraded from a previous version.
629846 Executing CIS queries concurrently accessing external files on a multi-engine server may crash the server with signal 10 (SIGBUS).
630202 In rare circumstances, stale log pages might be cached after node failure in a shared disk cluster such that two or more surviving nodes are left and failover recovery was needed for a multi-database transaction that was found in a prepared state. If the database is replicated, it is possible that the stale log pages will result in errors during replication.
631758 The value1 and value2 fields in sp_dbcc_run_differentialreport have insufficent length, thus causes conversion error.
631915 A signal 11 followed by a stacktrace involving CgpSort::_cgpInit() may occur when a VIEW or derived table with a non-correlated scalar aggregate subquery expression SELECT column is participating in some equijoin over the VIEW column.
632023 Under very specific circumstances a query that has been cached in the statement cache appears to be cached a second time according to the output of showplan, but the query has actually reused a cached plan.
632055 When large Java classes using nested methods causing deep recursions are run concurrently by multiple sessions, ASE may run into a situation where the signature cache of the PCI integrated JavaVM gets corrupted causing the report of inconsistent error messages. In some cases this may result in the JVM aborting or ASE shutting down itself.

636825 If "enable ssl" is configured and there is no ssl entry in the interfaces file when starting an ASE, sp_listener "start","ssltcp: < host > : < port > :'CN= < common name > '"," < engine > " will fail, with common name mismatch error.
637307 Using the "with verify=full" option for a database causes warning messages in the backup server log relating to pages 24-31. These messages are due to the system table that uses these pages having a special format. They can be safely ignored.
637395 In the Cluster Edition, when monitoring is enabled, the MaxIOServiceTime in the MDA table monOpenPartitionActivity may sometimes have values less than the AvgIOServiceTime.
637589 Signal 11 in function ScalarNormalizing() (amongst others) may be seen in the error log and the spid terminated when attempting to insert < table > ( < column-list > ) < col > from < table2 > union/union all < select > in a procedure where < table > is created inside the procedure and < table > contains non-nullable columns that are not in < column-list > .

640552 A mismatch between the Config Value and the Run Value will occur during booting of the dataserver if a load of sybsecurity database had resulted in less tables than configured for. The mismatch will be seen when executing sp_configure 'current audit table'.
641091 When running "sp_configure 'mnc_full_index_filter', 3", which will set the optimizer criterion full_index_filter=1, a poorly performing plan may be generated in circumstances whereby a query is running under rowcount (or top) and the lead order by column doesn't have an entry in the predicate and is the lead key column of an index. In this circumstance, the index will not be costed and if this table is placed outermost in the plan, a complete scan of the table and a sort to generate the order prior to application of the row count is used.
641109 The message "current process infected with 11" in the module 'getvalue' together with a stack trace which includes the modules 's_retparams' and 'execproc' may be reported in the error log when an INSERT statement is run on a table having an encrypted CHAR/VARCHAR column, the configuration parameter "statement cache" is active and the INSERT statement was previously cached but it had to be recompiled or renormalized because, for example, all the query plans were in use or the schema for the underlying table changed.
641192 Reboot of a cluster edition server may fail to recover local system temporary database, when model database is loaded from a lower server version dump, but not onlined before reboot.

645810 Linux with multipathing displays "reservation conflict" errors in the machine log when fencing is enabled.
645860 The message "current process infected with 11" in the module 'lt_sqlrep_comp_policy' together with a stack trace which includes the modules 's_compile_stmt' and 'GenLava' may be reported in the error log when a session executes a query that is being compiled by ASE, while a REORG REBUILD command or DDL activity takes place concurrently on the same table.
645944 Issue a warning if a network listener is using the IP address of a CIPC interconnect
646024 Sort operators are undercosted in fastfirstrow scenarios. Fastfirstrow scenarios include min/max optimizations, exists scans and the fastfirstrow optgoal.

If these two conditions are true, then every subsequent value inserted into the column will be truncated to 128 characters, if greater than 128 in length.
647051 The selectivity estimates for predicates on columns with NULL values may be incorrect for the !=, < , < = operators. There is also a correction for ANSINULL handling of NULL selectivity in which magic numbers were used instead of histogram values. Change is turned on by optcriteria cr647051 in optlevel ase155esd4
647138 A 11035 error, "Execution of procedure < proc name > failed because upgrade found no entry in syscomments for this object.

653067 sp_helpcache does not display the correct cache binding.
653157 In Adaptive Server/Cluster Edition, the opening of databases when booting a non-coordinator instance, is performed serially so that making all databases available takes an unnecessarily long period of time. The opening of databases is now done in parallel. The previous behavior has been retained under the 2796 trace flag.
653246 In 'Advanced Options' page of 'Add Database Device' Wizard, the 'skip allocation' is enabled by default (the box is checked).
653511 If a stored procedure undergoes recompilation, and the procedure makes assumptions regarding session's state (ie session environment settings), the resulting recompiled plan can be significantly different to the original. This fix is only active when traceflag 7773 is active.

664161 The message "current process infected with 11" in the module 'fglk__send_prom_attn' together with a stack trace which includes the modules 'fglk__promote' and 'getnext' may be reported in the error log and may bring the server down if a query involving a big number of tables (more than 50) was being executed in parallel and due to the number of locks acquired it attempted to promote the locks to a lock of a higher level.
664833 Normally, if an attribute from a table inner to an outer join is referenced in a higher scope outer join or in the WHERE clause, it would cause the outer join to degenerate into an inner join since all null extended rows would be eliminated. The exception occurs with "null preserving" predicates such as IS NULL which would not eliminate the row. If a nested outer join exists where a table is inner to an outer join and an attribute of the table is referenced in second higher scope outer join ON clause in a "null preserving" predicate then a wrong answer could result when a mergejoin/hashjoin is chosen for the higher scope outer join.
