Error 1813



Message text

Cannot open new database '%.*s'. CREATE DATABASE is aborted.


During a create database command, Adaptive Server opens the new database at several stages, first after inserting the rows into the system catalogs and later to initialize the log segment. Error 1813 occurs when Adaptive Server is unable to open the new database or initialize the log segment for the new database during a create database command.

This error can be caused by:


If error 1813 occurs just after a database has been dropped, shut down and restart Adaptive Server to clear the allocation buffers and then re-enter your create database command.

If this does not clear the problem, or you have not just dropped a database, call Sybase Technical Support.
