Upgrading Database and Transaction Log Dumps

Restore and upgrade a user database dump from an ealier version to the most current version of the SAP ASE.

  1. Load the most recent database dump.

  2. Load, in order, all transaction log dumps made since the last database dump.

    The SAP ASE server checks the timestamp on each dump to make sure that it is being loaded to the correct database and in the correct sequence.

  3. Issue online database to do the upgrade and make the database available for public use.

  4. Dump the newly upgraded database immediately after upgrade, to create a dump consistent with the current version of SAP ASE.
