Error 890



Message text

The mass containing the buffer '%S_BUF' should not be written in its current state. This is an Adaptive Server internal error. Please contact Sybase Technical Support.


Rarely, Adaptive Server Enterprise may detect a breakage of synchronization between a process releasing a disk buffer in cache and one writing the buffer. This message indicates that Adaptive Server did not write this buffer to avoid a potential corruption.


Contact technical support, to report this problem. If the error persists, a configurable shared memory dump (CSMD) may be helpful in determining the root cause for this error.
