I/O failed while attempting to clear pages starting at page %ld of disk number %ld.

NoteThis error can be caused by a hardware problem.


During a load database, create database, or alter database command, Adaptive Server initializes the non-allocated database pages. Error 3225 occurs if an I/O error occurs during this process.

This error can be caused by an operating system problem such as insufficient disk space for a file system or a disk going offline.


Check your operating system error logs to determine whether you have run out of disk space or are having other problems that could explain the I/O errors. Refer to “Checking the operating system error log” in the chapter “Other Useful Tasks” in the most recent version of Troubleshooting and Disaster Recovery for assistance.
