Dump/Load (from ASE 12.5.4 to ASE 15.x) - VS.
We are in the process of planning the upgrade of our ASE
12.5.4 dataservers to ASE 15.x. What is the most
recommended way to upgrade ASE dataservers from ASE 12.5.4
to ASE 15.x?
1) Install new instances of ASE 15.x and load database
dumps from our ASE 12.5.4 dataservers to the newly installed
ASE 15.x dataservers.
- OR -
2) Use the ASE upgrade utility (sqlupgrade) to upgrade our
existing ASE 12.5.4 dataservers to ASE 15.x.

I would like to confirm with you guys, If my thoughts are correct
regarding the methods for each situation, and if not, would like some advice
from you please. Correct me please if I am wrong.

12.0/64bit on AIX 4.3.3 to 12.5 (or 12.5.x) 64bit on AIX 5.2.
If I put AIX 5.2 , the dataserver binary of 12.0 will not work which is used
during the upgrade.
If I put 12.5.x on 4.3.3, the dataserver binary will not work beacuse it is
new binary for 5.2.
Other than backup the databases and load them to the new server, is there a
supported how to upgrade?

I'm currently working on a ASE 15 upgrade project (upgrading
from ASE 12.5.x). I'm trying to decide what version of ASE
15 we should upgrade to.
What are your thoughts? Which version is the safest bet
(ASE 15.0, ASE 15.0.1, ASE 15.0.2, ASE 15.0.3 or ASE 15.5)?
Which ASE version is considered, at this time, the most
mature and reliable version (i.e. with the least amount of
known bugs, least amount of upgrade issues, etc.)?

What are the correct steps to upgrade from ASE 12.5.3 to 15.0.2#4?
1. Upgrade ASE 12.5.3 to ASE 15.0, then from ASE 15.0 to ASE 15.0.2#4
2. Upgrade ASE 12.5.3 to ASE 15.0.2 ESD#4

Are there any common errors / issues related to using the
dump/load strategy vs. sqlupgrade utility for
upgrade/migration to ASE 15.x (from ASE 12.5.x)?
I've been reading posts on this discussion thread to try to
see if I can find any disadvantage of using the dump/load
strategy vs. using the sqlupgrade utility (i.e. common
errors / issues).
I noticed that some have run into errors after the
upgrade/migration when using system stored procedure(s). So
this sparked a few questions...
1) Is one upgrade/migration strategy prone to more errors
and issues than ...Migration from ASE 12.5.3 (Win 32bit) to ASE 15.0.2 (Unix 64 bit) question
I would like to migrate an ASE 12.5.3 on a Microsoft 32-bit

What steps must I follow?

With ASE 12.5.3 you're suppose to be able to perform cross platform dump-n-loads (XPDL), where 'cross platform'
basically means different OS's and/or different endian hardware. This (obviously?) assumes you'll be using ...ASE 12.5.2 to ASE 15 Migration

Its known fact master db cannot grow out of master device, the left option
takes both data and log when I use alter database. I re-checked preupgrd.exe
to validate the upgrade process again its giving same message (I altered

I have to return to ASE 188.8.131.52 from ASE 12.5.2.
I created a new server and did a dump/load of a user database and
that seems to be fine.
Is this a safe way to downgrade ?
Is it necessary to create a new server (master database) or should it
also be possible to shutdown the 12.5.2 server and start it again with
the 184.108.40.206 binary ?

Can I upgrade my ASE Server 12.5.3 ESD #3 to ASE15.0
without any problems?
According to a ESD #2 notice, if I do this it may regress
the bug compatibility?. What exactly does that mean? What
should I do instead?
