CR NumberDescription
484953 Sybcluster show instance status does not show correct status if shutdown instance outside sybcluster immediately.
569808 In rare circumstances, the message "current process infected with 11" in the module 'adb__reserve_pg' together with a stack trace which includes the module 'adb_dirty' may be reported in the error log after the load of an archive database.
584647 The values in "Default", "Config value", "Run Value" columns aren't right aligned when the sp_configure command is executed.
636677 Improve efficiency of spinlocks on the AIX platforms.
646013 When creating local index on semantic partitioning table, mapping between index partitions and datapartitions is not guaranteed in the same order of semantic partitioning boundary.
649701 Previously diagnostic information was available for error 290024 - invalid column. Due to possible performance issues, we now print it only if traceflag 2779 is set.
666556 Performance of sp_spaceused procedure is very slow when executed to get the space metrics for the entire database, especially so for databases with a very large number of objects and indexes. Improve the performance of this procedure by applying server-side changes along with a re-work of the procedure's logic. A new installmaster along with new ASE binary is needed to deliver this performance improvement. (The stored procedure changes alone are not sufficient).
668790 An audit process exception error message may occur that reports the incorrect numbers. The full error number is reported as the major number, the severity is reported as the minor number, the state is reported as the severity.
670275 ASE may allow four reader tasks to skip over a queued update task in lock sleep if the readers are trying to obtain a shared intent lock.
682738 CIS creates the first text page in an INSERT-SELECT query even though the source data is null. To activate the fix, trace flag 11241 needs to be turned on.

690437 Expression subquery was always evaluated as part of the aggregate input expression even when the subquery is under CASE expression and the actual execution of the CASE doesn't need the result of the subquery. This could lead to unexpected exception during the unnecessary execution of the subquery.
690533 A wrong result could happen for an equi-join between two columns with different datatypes (such as INT2 = INT4) and there are two or more OR predicates (including IN list predicates) on one of the joining columns.
693355 When the ASE ESD number is not an integer (e.g. 1.1, 4.1 or 5.1 etc), then anything using the sp_versioncrack stored procedure (e.g. sp_spaceusage) may encounter a 249 error (conversion error).
694912 Exception is raised from localize command in sybcluster if ASE-15_0/locales contains unnecessary files/dirs.

710430 A histogram with a range cell at the very end of the histogram may have the weight of the lower bound of the cell incorrectly added to the last cell. Range cells by convention are exclusive of the lower bound of the cell. This may result in mis-estimates and poor query plans when predicates in queries reference the lower bound value. This is especially true if the lower bound has a high row count associated with it.
710495 On Linux platforms, monThreads.OSThreadID is sometimes reported as a negative number that does not match the OS reported thread ID.

Previously "true" was printed when "on" or "off" was used.
713074 Monitor server has been retired since 15.7 GA but sybcluster still contained the operations for configuring monitor server. These operation options have now been removed.
713189 If the Cluster Editions is configured with both backup or xp servers, then adding an instance with an xml input file may fail.

716645 During an UPDATE command on a table that has in-row LOB columns defined, ASE may move some of these columns from in-row to off-row or vice-versa if the size of a datarow exceeds configured limits. When such a table has a datarow with an off-row LOB column that is not explicitly updated, ASE may not log this column data correctly. This will result in replication failing if this column is marked as always_replicate.
716679 When network password encryption is used and sp_passwordpolicy option 'unique keypair per session' is set to 0, client connections will fail with error message: Sybase CSI Error Message: Error generating asymmetric key.

719639 The message "Missing datarow in TEXT/IMAGE/UNITEXT insert log record. Transaction log may be corrupt." may be reported when attempting to replicate data after an alter table drop column with no datacopy command is run on a table with LOB data.
719643 If hash based statistics collection is used with a large number of steps, then a stack trace in the function ups_stat_memalloc() may be encountered.
719752 When GP (Granular Permissions) is enabled, booting ASE could result in 16802 (You must have the following permission to execute this command/procedure..) error.
719859 If data row decompression is used, then update index statistics may be slower since an unnecessary data row decompression is performed.
720703 The first row insertion into DOL table might lead to in-correct emptypgcnt value in SYSTABSTATS due to '0' emptypgcnt set by the task creating the index on empty DOL table.
721144 If Java in the database is being used, then if the "same" shared configuration file is used by more than one instance or Server, then there is a race condition during JVM initialization where it is possible that the message “current process infected with signal 11” in the function ‘jvminit’ may be reported in the error log, followed by the message “Failed to initialize Java services". This may result in ASE shutting itself down.
721278 A 691 error "Encountered invalid logical page '0' while accessing database ... This is an internal system error ..." may be reported in the error log followed by a stack trace which includes the functions 'set_repdb_status', 'txtimg_upd_table' and 'pg_oamscan_startscan' if a database that has the option "deferred table allocation" set is being marked for replication with SP_REPTOSTANDBY and the 'all' option.
721731 ASE Alarm Subsystem may stop working that can result in "waitfor delay hh:mm:ss" exceeding specified time or even hang. This can also cause log records having stale time values that can prevent "point in time restore of a database" not working.
721735 After ASE upgrade, Job Scheduler may fail to boot with error "Execution of rule check_jsc_state failed because of errors parsing the source text in syscomments during upgrade. Please drop and recreate dbo.check_jsc_state." Running "dbcc upgrade_object" on sybmgmtdb resolve the problem.
722547 On Unix systems the execution of DBCC DBTABLE may report descriptions of DBT3 bits when printing DBT2 bits mistakenly. On Windows systems a stack trace in the module 'prSTAT_str' may be reported in the error log due to a storage access violation.
722659 ASE reports a timeslice error with ksnetctlrPostWrite and ksmaskspost on the stack. Shared memory dump for the error shows a circular "Cancel Queue" leading to the timeslice error.
722673 The execution of the command "DROP PRECOMPUTED RESULT SET < prs_name > " on the primary database cannot be replicated into the standby database successfully.
722767 The remote backup server name length for DUMP/LOAD commands has been expanded to support more than 30 characters.
722856 In an HA environment when a role that contains a role activation predicate is dropped on the primary server the secondary server does not remove the predicate metadata.
722902 DDLGen generates data partition names instead of index partition names in the index partition clause for a clustered index on an all pages locked table . Also the semantic order of partitions in the index partition clause for both clustered and non clustered indexes is not correct. Also if index partition names are system generated, then they are not generated in the partition spec , when -XPN option is specified
723015 The backupserver error message " Invalid RPC sequence at RPC as_cmd." followed by " RPC ('as_cmd') execution failed." may be reported when a LOAD DATABASE is executed and the backupserver name "hostname:portnumber" cannot be resolved correctly.
723500 When using Replication Server with HVAR turned on and an update statement against a table on the primary causes non-updated in-row LOB datums to be moved off-row so the new data could fit in the target row, then the LTL generated by Rep Agent may be wrong, and replication may result in those datums being set to NULL on the replicate.
723986 After 'reorg rebuild' or 'change lock' an empty table, the emptypgcnt of systabstats becomes 0, which, however, should be 1.
724023 The message "current process infected with 11" in the module 'bufreserve' together with a stack trace which includes the modules 'drop_al_dbid' and 'alterdb' may be reported in the error log when an ALTER DATABASE LOG OFF command is executed to shrink this database log space.
725209 ASE on Windows may report "LAST CHANCE EXCEPTION HANDLER on OS thread id < threadID > ...A SERIOUS UNHANDLED EXCEPTION HAS OCCURRED SERVER MAY NOT BE ABLE TO CONTINUE" with kcierrfmt() on the stack during shutdown when the server is forcefully shutdown, for example through CTRL-BREAK.
725211 ASE engines may start consuming 100% CPU which can result in ASE being unresponsive. New client connections may not also be possible.
725810 The message "current process infected with 11" in the module 'th_curunreservedpgs' together with a stack trace which includes the modules 'LeRun' and 'exec_lava' may be reported in the error log when a session executes a SELECT statement that uses the T-SQL function "curunreservedpgs" while another session is in the process of extending the size of the current database with ALTER DATABASE command.
