Hi all,

my pc crashed and we lost the drive, we had a backup(network app not sybase) of our db and db.log file that msut have been taken while the dbeng was running. When I try and start sybase up again I get the error message :

Error assertion failed: 31110 - file shorter than expected.

I have tried starting the db with out the log file with no success, as well as dbvalid, using asa 7. Getting nowhere very fast with this!

thanks

Try starting off with a new log file.  If that doesn't work, try this:

Dbstart file.db -ho

I'll try that -ho, I have tried without a log using -f which has worked in the past but I think the issue is with the db file and not the log...

I tried that as well with dbeng as well as dbstart and I still get the assertion.

the exact messages in dbstart are:
2048k of memeroy used for caching
Database recovery in progress
    Last checkpoint "on the day it last ran ok"
    Checkpoint log...

and then the message box:
Error assertion failed: 31110 - file shorter than expected


any other ideas thanks... I have also tried dbvalid and unlaoding the db with no success

If the -ho option doesn't work, try to apply and log files you have to backup databases.  If you can't start it, you can't reload it.  Might be out of luck...

I think I am out of luck here,

I will leave this open for a bit longer as possibly one of the sybase techies might read this, they have resolved this on the sybase site but to view the solution I need to have a support contract with them :(
