Error 3216



Message text

Backup Server session id is:  %ld.  Use this value when executing the 'sp_volchanged' system stored procedure after fulfilling any volume change request from the Backup Server.


Dumps and loads are performed by an Open Server program known as Backup Server. During the backup and restore process, it may be necessary to change tape volumes. If Backup Server detects the need to change the currently mounted volume, it requests a volume change by sending messages to either the client or its operator console. After mounting another volume, the operator notifies Backup Server by executing the sp_volchanged system procedure on Adaptive Server.

Error 3216 is an informational message that Backup Server issues when starting a dump or load operation. The message notifies the operator of the current session ID, which the operator needs if it becomes necessary to execute sp_volchanged during the dump or load operation.


This is an informational message. No action is necessary.
