Error 3230



Message text

For logical disk device '%.*s', neither primary device '%.*s' nor secondary device '%.*s' is active.  %s cannot continue.


During a dump or load, Adaptive Server must translate the logical device names into physical device names and pass these to Backup Server, which performs the dump or load. For each device, Adaptive Server first checks whether the primary physical device is in the active state; if not, it checks whether the secondary (mirror) device is active.

Error 3230 is raised when neither the primary nor secondary devices are active.

WARNING! This is a fatal error that breaks your connection to Adaptive Server.

The error may be caused by:


Examine the Adaptive Server error log and the operating system log to see if the devices used in the dump or load are offline or otherwise unavailable to the server. See “Checking the operating system error log” in the chapter “Other Useful Tasks” in the most recent version of Troubleshooting and Disaster Recovery for assistance.

If the devices are active, shut down and restart Adaptive Server, and retry the dump or load operation.
