I found a couple solved cases at sybase.com that are similar to what you're seeing (though they are on ASE 12.5.x and
not ASE 15.0.1).

Each of the cases recommends running dbcc checkcatalog. If checkcatalog reports any problems you can then a) run dbcc
checkcatalog's fix option or b) drop and recreate any (faulty) indexes reported by checkcatalog.

If you don't know which database the error was generated from then you should run dbcc checkcatalog in all databases.

Since you appear to have some corruption you may want to look at running a full set of dbcc's against all of your
databases at some point. (If you go this route I'd suggest setting up and configuring a dbccdb database.)

Hi,
How do you know my error appears as related to corruption? I really thought this might something to do with user account use to start Js_agent, but my problem is I do not know which account/use used to start this agent...
