Level 17: Insufficient Resources

Error messages with severity level 17 mean that the command has caused SAP ASE to run out of resources or to exceed some limit set by the system administrator. The user can continue, although he or she might not be able to execute a particular command

These system limits include the number of databases that can be open at the same time and the number of connections allowed to SAP ASE. They are stored in system tables and can be checked with sp_configure.

The database owner can correct the level 17 error messages indicating that the user has run out of space. Other level 17 error messages should be corrected by the system administrator.
