Error 4322



Message text

SQL Server cannot load a dump of the master database that was dumped from an older version of SQL Server. The current master database upgrade version is %ld, the dump master database upgrade version is %ld.


Error 4322 is raised when you try to load a dump of the master database that was created on an earlier version of Adaptive Server than your currently installed version.


If you know you do not have a dump of master from your current version level because you did not dump master after you upgraded, and your master database is corrupted, call Sybase Technical Support.

Otherwise, check the current upgrade version of the master dump you are trying to load. For example:

1> load database master from 'master.dump' with headeronly 
2> go
