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.

When upgrading from ASE 12.5.x to ASE 15.x, what is the best
version to upgrade too?
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.)?
If applicable, please also give the most recomm...ASE 18.104.22.168 to ASE 15.02 EBF2 upgrade

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...

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?

It means that most of the bugs fixed in 12.5.3 ESDs

I'm currently planning to do an upgrade in place from ASE
12.5.4 to ASE 15.0.3 using sqlupgrade(res) utility.
Does it just run the installmaster and instmsgs.ebf scripts
Will I have to manually run the rest of the scripts i.e.
installsecurity, installdbccdb etc.?
Also in ran the preupgrade program against my old server -
the main errors it came up with were:
Stored Procedure '' uses deprecated builtin functions as:
'rowcnt', which should be changed to 'row_count'.
It doesn't show the stored procedures name - has anyone had
this problem ?
Re...ASE 12.5 32bit to ASE 15.0 64bit upgrade
What are the steps to upgrade from 12.5 32bit to 15.0 64bit
on AIX 5.3? The 15.0.1 Installation Guide describes the
normal 15.0 upgrade process but then has a terse section
towards the end, "Migrating from 32-bit to 64-bit version",
that describes other steps. Are these steps in addition to
the normal upgrade process (sqlupgrade) or are they in place
of sqlupgrade? Do I really have to drop and re-create all

we have a warm-standby replication (Rep Server 15.0.1) and

#1. I it correct if i say that i only need to Stop my
replication, follow the upgrade proces for my ASE (active
and standby ASE), and then just start my replication again?
(so no steps are required for my replication)
FYI, the latest ASE 15.0.2 upgrade is ESD #2 (released about a week ago).
If your RSSD is in one of the ASE's that you're preparing to upgrade then yes, you'll want to shutdown repserver before
doing the upgrade. (...
