SQLBase 11.5 experiences

Hi,

for all who are interested in: I've testes SB11.5 for only 2 hours and found
many bugs and some things not implemented completely. The most annoying
thing is, that the new multi processor support which is mainly implemented
by creating a separate process for the cache manager, is not supported with
SQLBase Treasury. Only SQLBase Standard has been enhanced.

The error message is:
0/1: 00736 VIO CMT Cannot initialize external cache manager with encryption
enabled

Reason: The external cache manager is not currently supported with SQLBase
Treasury.

Remedy: Disable the external Cache Manager in SQL.INI (usecmcache=0)

Regards,

Rainer

Hi All,

ODBC seems to be my bane. Every version I encounter issues :-(.
Installation of 11.5.0 has messed up my existing 11.0.2 ODBC usage because
it uses the same name: Unify SQLBase. I realize there are good reasons for
using the same name, but there are also bad reasons. To my way of thinking
it would be better to include some version numbering in the name. Then you
can have multiple instances that you can test out on the same machine. I
had to edit the registry and point the file locations back to my 11.0.2
directory in order to get some production tasks to function. I suspect I
will encounter the same issue with the OLEDB provider, but I hope not.
Unless I am mistaken, Microsoft actually provides for the ability to do
versioning with those along with the ability to use the most recent one. So
you could use SQLBASEOLEDB for the most recent or SQLBASEOLEDB.n for the
specific version n. I hope Unify has adapted to this ability with the new
version. I can report on that as I get to it.

One really annoying thing I encountered on my development machine which
now has both 11.0.2 and 11.5.0 is that my instance of 11.0.2 would keep
popping up every so often. At first I thought it was some kind of fluke and
would just close it. Until it happened several times. Eventually I traced
the issue to the new "SQLBase Command Center Task-Scheduling Service". I
don't yet know why it was triggering the loading of the version 11.0.2
server. For the time being, I just disabled that service. Goodness knows
what issues that will cause.

Hi Clifford,

the "SQLBase Command Center Task-Scheduling Service" executed database
maintenance operations defined (sheduled) in the SQLBase Command Center.
This service uses the SBTASK database where the maintenance operations are
stored. Maintenance operations are things like "Database Backup", "Update
Statistics", ...
