Bug ID Description
464605 The "enable large pool for load" configuration parameter is added to configure the use of large buffer pools during the recovery phase for LOAD DATABASE and LOAD TRANSACTION commands execution. This configuration parameter will default to 0 if "enable functionality group" is set to 0, and to 1 if "enable functionality group" is set to 1.
545716 Long Running Transaction against an SAP ASE server can prevent the log being truncated, causing risk of data unavailability for DMLs. Improve how this can be managed.
546891 Permissions on "sysslices" system table remain unchanged when "GRANT DEFAULT PERMISSIONS ON SYSTEM TABLES" or "REVOKE DEFAULT PERMISSIONS ON SYSTEM TABLES" SQL commands are executed.
653277 An UPDATE query running in a batch that includes a CREATE INDEX or UPDATE/DELETE STATISTICS or an UPDATE query running simultaneously with a workload that involves CREATE INDEX or UPDATE/DELETE STATISTICS may lead to data inconsistency.
656902 If a query contains a join between partitioned tables and one of the partitioned tables degenerates to a single partition through dynamic partition elimination and there is a CIS table in the query, then a SEGV could occur in the PartNodeInfo::collocatedSite() method.
703607 Backup Server is enhanced to provide Multithread support needed for Tivoli Storage Manager options such as LAN-FREE. This support is off by default. It can be turned on by using the new –D8192 option during Backup Server startup. For example: ${BACKUPSERVER} -SSYB_BACKUP -I$SYBASE/interfaces -M${SYBMULTBUF} -D8192&
724472 In rare circumstances, recreation of in-memory databases during start up of SAP ASE may hang when there are more than one in-memory databases with the same template database. SAP ASE can still be used, but an attempt to use the in-memory databases that are not recreated will result in an error 962, "Database with ID ' < value > ' is not available. Please try again later." being reported.
725315 The VERIFY option for the DUMP and LOAD commands does not give the user any indication of whether errors were found or not. The errors are currently reported only in the backupserver errorlog.
726439 Under some rare conditions, if there is a HASH AGGREGATE operator above a JOIN operator, wrong query results may occur.
726936 When I/O fencing is enabled, the server may fail to correctly fence the devices and start up. Need environment variable SYBASE_MAX_MULTIPATHS to override number of paths iterated which should be set to 1 if PowerPath is enabled.
728903 Under some rare conditions, if there is a HASH AGGREGATE operator above a JOIN operator, wrong query results may occur.
729022 For some special table name, REORG REBUILD and ALTER TABLE fail with an infected with 11 error on IdentifierType::IdentifierType.
729795 The incorrect message "The dump configuration ' < value > ' supplied for SELECT is invalid. The change is completed. The option is dynamic and ASE need not be rebooted for the change to take effect." may be reported by sp_config_dump with an option that is longer than the supported length.
730656 Cache bindings may be ignored if a 'strict' database recovery order is specified.
731753 If ALTER TABLE is used to add a NOT MATERIALIZED column < c2 > with a default, then another nullable column < c3 > is added to the table and REORG REBUILD the table, a query to the table will also assign the default to the column < c3 > .
731769 In case of an exception, SAP ASE hits an error 1265 while aborting / rolling back the transaction. Abort or rollback of the transaction may happen because of some internal / external error. Error: 1265, Severity: 20, State: 1 An illegal attempt was made to release an invalid lock or a lock that is not owned by the process family.
732631 REORG REBUILD < table_name > WITH ONLINE command, does not update the index create time-stamp(index_created field in sp_helpindex output) for the indexes rebuilt.
733346 The stored procedure sp_dropexternlogin will fail when executed by a user that has SSO_ROLE and not SA_ROLE when granular permissions is not enabled.
733428 The "recovery prefetch size" configuration parameter is added to configure the lookahead size (in terms of log pages) in order for recovery to prefetch to-be-recovered pages. When set to 0, SAP ASE will automatically optimize the value.
733752 The estimate for NULLs in the optimizer may be incorrect if hash based statistics gathering is used, when the number of unique values in the column is greater than 65535.
734176 If DBCC DBREBOOT is unsuccessful for some reason, the status in sysdatabases may sometimes incorrectly indicate that a forced shutdown is in progress, even after SAP ASE has been shutdown and rebooted successfully.
734470 When SAP ASE is booted with trace flag 7437 it will not switch from an OAM scan to an allocation page scan when an incorrect page count value in one or more OAM entries is found during boot time recovery and while calculating the free space page counts for a database.
734617 Adaptive Server 15.7 may execute SELECT queries at isolation level 3 on Data Only Locked scheme tables slower than SAP ASE 15.0.3 or 15.5 if the session executing the SELECT query holds a large number of locks.
734800 Backup Server may occasionally report a spurious error when executing a DUMP or LOAD WITH VERIFY[ONLY], as a result of checking a page that is already deallocated. This is more likely to happen when the deallocated page belonged to compressed table.
734899 A 692 error, "Uninitialized logical page < pageno > was read while accessing database ...", may be reported after loading an in-memory database dump from a database where this page was used but was marked as deallocated incorrectly, resulting in this page not being archived in the dump.
734983 Added new option SET PLAN SHARED ON and server wide param 'abstract plan sharing'. It enables Abstract Plan sharing between different users. Tables in the query with shared abstract plan must be explicitly prefixed with the owner name or belong to the DBO user.
735003 The built-ins or stored procedures that rely on OAM for space accounting get blocked on an exclusive table lock on the table.

737628 Intelligient index scan may lead to non-optimal index in plan selection.
737879 When backup server is started with trace flag –D2048, the pages that have been allocated after the backup server built a list of pages to be archived and before the related allocation page is read by sybmultbuf, will be resent. Prior to dump a database one can run “SYB_BACKUP…qatraceon 105” that will add appropriate messages in the backup server error log when a resent has occurred.
738117 The message, "Current process infected with signal 11", followed by a stack trace that includes the module ssql_release() or ssql_choose_victims() may be reported in the SAP ASE error log when the statement cache is full in a high concurrency SAP ASE environment.

741786 A 706 error, "Process < pid > tried to remove PROC_HDR < phdr > that it does not hold in Pss", may be encountered when an SQL statement is executed and it is either stored in the SQL statement cache or it is a dynamic SQL statement and during execution a regeneration of the statement query tree from SQL text is required and an exception is encountered during the parsing of the corresponding SQL text.
741799 The Sybmon restart command fails with an error, "Unknown command", when executed without specifying an engine number for a server running in process kernel mode.
741822 When create a huge size database(data size > 63G), stack trace including module pg__gam_extend() may be detected. For example executing statement as "create database testdb on ldev1='50m', #nulldev='7t', ldev2='50m' log on ldev3='50m'", it will hit the stack trace.
741847 The 3051 message, "The dump configuration '' supplied for DUMP DATABASE is invalid", can be mistakenly returned for the valid dump configuration which has a 30 bytes long name.
741901 When a CREATE INDEX command is executed and the following conditions are met, (1) The configuration option, 'enable functionality group' is on and (2) The table upon which the index is being created has datarows locking scheme and (3) The first index-key column contains at least one NULL value and (4) a Lava parallel execution plan is used, then the resulting index may be missing rows for the NULL-valued columns.
741910 Enable a login with mon_role to execute sp_monitorconfig on SAP ASE 15.7
741924 An undetected deadlock might occur between a process that ran out of syslogs space and has crossed the last chance syslogs threshold and another process that is attempting to expand the syslogs size by executing an ALTER DATABASE command. The output of dbcc stacktrace( < spid > ) command for one of these two processes will show the modules 'th_sleep_on_lct' and 'upsleepgeneric' whereas for the other process the modules 'writeLock' and 'upyield'. An SAP ASE restart is needed to unblock this situation.
741959 The message, "Current process infected with signal 11", followed by a stack trace that includes the module mda__process_sdes() may be reported in the error log when querying the monProcessObject MDA table.
742098 A 1265 error, "An illegal attempt was made to release an invalid lock or a lock that is not owned by the process family (lr= < value > , lrmagic= < value > )" together with a stack trace which includes the modules 'th_lct_admin' and 'num_logpages' may be reported in the error log if the builtin lct_admin("num_logpages", < dbid > ) is executed concurrently by several processes.

743573 The message "Current process infected with signal 11" in the module NormalizeScalar() with a stacktrace which includes the modules PesState::PesInit() may be reported when executing an UPDATE...FROM query on a table that has immediate refresh pre-computed result set (PRS) defined on it.
743637 MERGE triggers on DOL tables may return the incorrect number of rows for the inserted table: too few rows for the UPDATE trigger and possibly too many rows for the INSERT trigger.
743676 Wrong data may show up in page-compressed APL table with all fixed length columns.
743775 Audit table records might be malformed or missing for table access events when auditing is turned on.
743913 When a new plan for a procedure is installed, the accumulated metric LogicalReads in the monCachedProcedures table for the cached procedure maybe incorrect.
743922 In rare circumstances, a SELECT FOR UPDATE query may return successfully without getting the exclusive lock on the row, even if READPAST mode was not being used. This only affects the AIX platforms and has been identified as an AIX compiler optimization issue when high levels of optimization are used on a specific module.
744013 In a High Availability server, sp_addlogin and sp_addremotelogin will fail with permission errors when the user executing the stored procedures is granted sso_role only.
744116 The SAP ASE Rep Agent thread sends float values ending in .0 without the .0 which makes them appear to be integers instead of floating point values. This can cause statement caching to create multiple plans for the same table leading to contention in the statement cache and degrading query performance.
744256 In rare circumstances, soft fault 100015 (page loop error) reported by DBCC CHECKSTORAGE may be upgraded to hard fault after running DBCC CHECKVERIFY.

744975 An incorrect index can be selected when a query contains a multi-column ORDER BY, if the avoid_bmo_sorts optcriteria is turned on explicitly or thru enabling the ase_current optimization level. If a sort is used below a nested loop join, and the ordering that the sort produced contains a unique key, and the ordering is extended by the nested loop join and eventually used to satisfy the ORDER BY, then this plan may be skipped if the avoid_bmo_sorts optcriteria is turned on.
744978 TEXT/IMAGE data could be corrupted by byte-swap if the database once performed cross-platform database load on 15.0 ESD#2 or later version of SAP ASE, and the database was originally from a pre-12.0 version of SAP ASE.

745325 Boot SAP ASE with trace flag 9166 when dbcc logtransfer replication is used to diminish the likelihood of contention on the Network Memory Pool spinlock that can cause high CPU utilization when a user table is marked for replication. Don't use trace flag 9166 with Rep Agent replication because operations such as DDL replication or request functions won't work anymore.
745599 In rare circumstances the message "current process infected with 6" in the module '__systemcall' together with a stack trace which includes the modules 'jvmfini' and 'BRIDGEjvm_AbortJavaVM' may be reported in the error log during the execution of a UDF/ADT or SQLJ query.
745872 When the command: sp_online "engine", < 42 > .. fails, i.e due to OS resource issue, SAP ASE's listener will hang, preventing new connections to be established.

745914 DBCC CHECKALLOC may report an incorrect number of unreserved log pages after ALTER DATABASE LOG OFF fails to remove a log fragment because some of the pages to remove are allocated.
746156 In some rare cases, when DOL data pages are undergoing deallocation while table scans are concurrently executed on the table, inserts from other concurrent threads may incorrectly qualify to-be-deallocated pages. This may result in 7928 or other index corruption errors reported from DBCC CHECKTABLE.
746261 SAP ASE CE hangs when it cannot access storage devices due to a fencing or storage disconnect.
746285 Enhancement that adds the possibility to add a cyclic redundancy check to a database or transaction dump created with compression (VERIFY=CRC), as well as to verify that the compression blocks can be correctly read and decompressed (WITH VERIFY=READ_AFTER_WRITE).
746312 The message, "Current process infected with signal 11", followed by a stack trace that includes the module mda_calc_proc_hdr_mem_KB() may be reported in the error log while querying the MDA table, monProcessProcedures.
746330 When sp_maplogin LDAP, NULL, 'create login' enables an authenticated LDAP user to create their own login and master database replication is enabled, the CREATE LOGIN statement on the replicate database gets error: "Message: 10331, State 2, Severity 14 -- 'Permission denied, database master, owner dbo. You need the following permission(s) to run this command: MANAGE ANY LOGIN. " The error is mapped to stop replication.
746344 SAP ASE may hang when doing a disk mirror in some situations. The disk controller thread consumes 100% of the CPU utilization while the server hangs. Also, no new connections to the server can be established.
746349 Backup Server introduces a remote access control feature that prevents remote dumps and loads and execution of remote procedure calls (RPC) from any client or server running on unauthorized servers. Local dumps are not affected by this feature. Authorization to dump or load, to or from Backup Server is achieved by including the authorized hosts in the host.allow access control file. The default location of hosts.allow file is $SYBASE. The location and name can be changed using the Backup Server parameter -h. This feature failed when the connection to the backup server was through a named pipe.

746464 Stored procedures using "execute as caller" with queries that call builtin function ISNULL() and create and query #temporary tables fail with error: Msg 208, Level 16, State 1: Server ' < servername > ', Line 26: < #temporary_table > not found.
746528 Killing a task which involves cursor or work tables might cause the server to hang, waiting for EX_LATCH on an allocation page on which EX_LATCH had been acquired by the same task before the 'kill' was issued on it. (A diagserver throws an 872 error).
746562 A trigger defined on MERGE statement executing both INSERT and UPDATE actions may return incorrect rows for inserted table for the INSERT action. This happens if the same trigger is defined for both INSERT and UPDATE: "create trigger T on TAB for insert,update as ..."
746597 In some cases an error may be reported in the SAP ASE errorlog, accompanied by a stack trace with the functions kbfalloc() and ptn__pdes_init_colupdcnt() in the stack.
746601 When a table which is defined as compressed, and there is some fixed length column which is 'not null' and 'not materialized' in this table, update (index) statistics on this table may hit stack trace and SIGSEGV at decompress__column_by_colinfo().
746614 INSERTs using normal page allocation running alongside operations using large-scale page allocation (LSA) scheme can overwrite the content put in by LSA operations in certain race circumstances between them.
