The Database Extract (DbXtract) task looks for a database template corresponding to current Schema Version details in S_APP_VER table.
In case this is not found, it fails with message: "DBX-00038: No DB template found" (Siebel versions 5.x, 6.x) or "SBL-DBX-00038: No local database template found." in more recent versions (7.x, 8.x).



Generate New Database server task has not been executed prior to running a Database Extract server task following one of the actions below:

1. During the initial Siebel Remote setup process
2. Each time the Siebel schema version has been increased by one of the following tasks:

a) A Dev2Prod Repository Migration process has been executed;
b) or a DDLSync process has been executed;
c) Pressing the 'Activate' button in Siebel Tools after making changes to Tables, Indexes etc.
d) A new Database Schema Upgrade Kit has been generated from the Siebel Anywhere screen.
e) in more recent versions, if certain upgrade / IRM process was performed on Siebel database (for instance, upgrading from to version would increase Major Schema version from 45 to 48).
