Error 14120



Message text

Expected to find the partition descriptor for objid `%d` indid `%d` ptnid `%d` in dbid `%d`, in a `%s` state (found state `%d` instead).


Before executing certain operations on partitions, Adaptive Server Enterprise checks the state of the partition descriptor (PDES) to verify that it is in a valid state for the desired operation. Error 14120 is raised when the state that is found is not valid or what was expected.


Error 14120 indicates an internal Adaptive Server Enterprise issue. Depending on the table involved, it may be necessary to reboot Adaptive Server to clear the invalid state.

If sp_monitorconfig number of open objects shows a Num_reuse count > 0, increasing the number of open objects parameter may lessen the chances of error 14120 re-occurring.

Additional information

Contact Sybase Technical Support. If the error persists, it may be necessary to gather a configurable shared memory dump (CSMD). Information about CSMD can be found in the section “Other Useful Tasks” in the most recent version of the Adaptive Server Enterprise Troubleshooting and Disaster Recovery guide.
