Error 7438



Message text

The threshold cache for the database '%.*s' (%d) is corrupt. Please use dbcc dbrepair with option 'newthreshold' to rebuild the threshold cache of the database.


Adaptive Server maintains a cache of systhresholds information and threshold pointers for each database. This cache is validated against the systhresholds table when a threshold is added or modified, or when dbcc checkcatalog is run. If the cache validation fails, error 7438 is raised.


Run dbcc dbrepair (dbname, newthreshold) to rebuild the threshold cache. See the Reference Manual: Commands for instructions on using dbcc dbrepair.
