sybase error : while loading database bad magic number
Posted on 2016-10-09
I got the following error when I was loading a database as usual:
Volume validation error: bad magic number 0ءّ, expected USTH.
is it because I try to load dump from sybase ase 15.7 onto ase 15.0.3 ??
I read some thing like this :
The 'bad magic number' is usually raised when you attemp to load a backup with and older version of the backupserver than then backserver that made the backup
Loading database from higher version to lower version is possible but we can't use higher version features in this way.
I was sure the oposit is the right case i.e we can load dump from older version onto higher, but cannot load dump from higher version.
