Error 14108



Message text

Could not find partition descriptor for objid %d, indid %d, ptnid %d in dbid %d.


Partition descriptor is an Adaptive Server Enterprise internal data structure used to keep track of partition state, including the syspartitions row for a given partition. This is an Adaptive Server internal error raised when a database task fails to grab the partition descriptor used to set up a table.


Error 14108 may be due to an insufficient number of open partitions. Increase the configuration for number of open partitions and retry the affected query. See “Setting Configuration Parameters” in the System Administration Guide: Volume 1 for details on setting this parameter.

Additional information
