    • ASE transaction log is completely full (Error 1105/3475)
    • ASE transaction log is corrupt (Error 695/834)
    • The database is subsequently inaccessible and unrecoverable
  • You are considering truncating the ASE transaction log withh the database in bypass recovery mode (aka suicide log procedure), in order to clear the above conditions.

  • When executing the 'dump tran' command
  • Error 4246 is returned
    dump tran db1 with no_log


    Msg 4246, Level 16, State 1:
    Server 'ASE', Line 1:
    Warning: You cannot run DUMP TRANSACTION WITH NO_LOG for a database that is in bypass recovery mode because this can cause data inconsistency.
    Use the command 'dump tran db1 with no_log, force_key=12345' to bypass this restriction.
