Sybase 11 Error

Posted on 2010-01-05

I'm getting the following error (from IIS log) on one ASP in my web:
2010-01-05 16:22:40 W3SVC1765205524 POST /detail.asp |100|80004005|[INTERSOLV][ODBC_SQL_Server_driver]
80 - Mozilla/4.0+(compatible;+MSIE+7.0;+Windows+NT+5.2;+.NET+CLR+1.1.4322;+.NET+CLR+2.0.50727;+.NET+CLR+3.0.4506.2152;+.NET+CLR+3.5.30729) 500 0 0

I'm not getting the error on other pages so I doubt it's a driver issue. There have been no server updates, code changes, or DB changes but app stopped funcitgoning after new year.

    Try to update sybase client version on the Windows 2003.
    The problem related does reference to client problem. (ct_con_props(SET,NETIO): user api layer: external error: The buflen parameter must be set to CS_UNUSED.)

    If it's a client issue, why is it only happening on certain web pages?? That doesn't make sense to me. I was just told the database is on a Windows 2000 box but they should change anything. I think it's time to move the data to Oracle or Sql Server!

    I said this, because exists a case in Sybase #10872296 that tell:

    Getting message from ODBC about buflen parameter must be set to cs_unused. error message: ct_con_props(SET,NETIO): user api layer: external error: The buflen parameter must be set to CS_UNUSED. (9)

    this issue was related to the setup of the path environment variable and older lib files, it appeared to be picking up library files located in the system32 directory from a previous installation, to rememedy this, move the sybase entries in the path statement to the front and test, if that resolves the issue, then search the system for prevously installed files of an older sybase client (11.1) which may have placed files in the system32 directory and remove them

    search system for older lib files, and modify path statement to point to new installation of client at the front Other Sources Related to Issue TechNote.
