I wander if anyone out there can help me or have experienced a similar problem as me . I have a case open with Sybase support but don't feel I am getting anywhere to resolve this problem .
Occasionally when I have backed up a database , the backup fails displaying error 3230 'for logical device 'ProdLog4', neither primary device '/dev/vx/rdsk/logs/ProdLog4 ' nor secondary device is active DUMP DATABASE cannot continue'.
Now I have been told reboot the server to get the device back online, eventhough the device is not actually offline .But then it happens again and has been happening several times .After weeks of sending several logs files to sybase they have came to the conclusion that there some sort of shared memory corruption , but what is causing this is a mystery . They are convinced it is a OS problem ( Sybase is running on Solaris 7) but the OS logs don't indicate any hardware or software problem.
Has anyone else ever experienced this problem before ? How did you finally resolve it ?
