Error 5846



Message text

Illegal value '%ld' specified for configuration option '%s'. The legal values are between '%ld' and '%ld'.


Error 5846 occurs when you specify a value for a configuration parameter that is lower than the lowest value allowed or higher than the highest value allowed.

NoteAdaptive Server checks to make sure you have not set configuration parameters to values outside the allowed ranges. However, if you set a parameter such as number of open objects to a value that is too high for the amount of memory you have configured and that value is within the allowed range, error 5846 will not be raised and you may not be able to start Adaptive Server. Use sp_configure with the verify or read option to point out this sort of problem after you make configuration parameter changes and before you restart Adaptive Server.


Refer to “Setting Configuration Parameters” in the System Administration Guide: Volume 1 for legal value ranges for configuration parameters. Reset the value of the parameter named in the 5846 error message.
