Siebel Remote : Data Extract parameter ClientDbTxnLog=True, can cause Database Initialization to fail. (Doc ID 2065392.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 05, 2019

Applies to:

Siebel Client Sync - Version 8.0 [20405] and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Customer reported an issue while initializing a local DB after a Database extract.

In this case, customer has an existing local Database on the client machine, but when they perform a synchronization after the new Database Extract for the same user, the Database Initialization starts and it fails.

On reviewing the upgwiz.log file,  Initialization failed with Error message

"[Sybase][ODBC Driver][Adaptive Server Anywhere]Unable to start specified database: Can't use log file "C:\Siebel\8.1\Client_2\Local\sse_data_txn.log" since it has been used more recently than the database file"



Customer had inadvertently set the Database Extract Component definition parameter 'Client Database Transaction Log' (Alias : ClientDbTxnLog) = True 

This influences the value of this parameter when it comes to running Database Extract jobs, even if the parameter ClientDbTxnLog = True  is not explicitly set on the list of Database Extract job parameters.  (The value will be taken from the Component definition)
