Error 8211



Message text

Mismatch found between the name and id descriptor hash table. Descriptor hashed by name = 0x%0x and hashed by id = 0x%0x.


Object descriptors are the data structures used to manage access to Adaptive Server objects. ID and name hash tables are used to maintain object descriptors. Every object descriptor should have a corresponding entry in the ID and name hash tables. Error 8211 occurs when Adaptive Server finds two descriptors for one object or when a descriptor for an object exists in only one of the hash tables (ID or name table).


Shut down and restart Adaptive Server to clear the cache corruption.

If the 8211 error persists, contact Sybase Technical Support.
