Unanswered: Strange behaviour of the Backup Server on 22.214.171.124 on Windows 2003 platform
On most, but not all, of the Windows 2003 servers we have ASE 126.96.36.199 installed on, the backup server will randomly stop dumping the database.
The database dumps are executed by a scheduled task and a perl script. The result varies, sometimes the jobs show that they are blocked by a process and sometimes they dont show up at all.
In both cases restarting the backup server gets the dumps going again.
I found one note on the Sybase site "On Windows platform, dump and load commands leak file handles which can accumulate over a series of dump/loads, with the backupserver eventually running out of file handles reporting the error "nl__write_defer: write failed on socket 1: Insufficient quota to complete the requested service". "
I haven't seen this yet, but will be looking for it in future instances of the problem.
Is anyone aware of any other backup server related bugs/CR's for 12.5 on Windows?
