ASE 12.5.4 esd 5 and ASE 15.0.1 esd 2 – unable to load with more than 32 stripes

On Linux, have you ever tried to load a database from backups with dozens of stripes and it failed even though you increased the resources on the backup server? Well, I recently ran into it while trying to load a 1TB database from over 100 stripe files.

Backup Server: 1.72.1.17: Bitmap routine called by function AT_ISSTRIPELDED returned -1
Backup Server: 1.72.1.18: Bitmap routine called by function AT_ISSTRIPELDED returned -1

This turns out to be a new bug with the Sybase Backupserver (both 12.5x and 15.0x codelines): CR 466497. If you run into this bug, please open a case with Sybase TechSupport and have your ticket associated with this bug.
WORKAROUND: Unfortunately, you will need to backup your database(s) with 32 stripes or less.

    Most likely your restore has a different number of stripes than your load. Carefully check each line to make sure that both match exactly. If one is missing; you will get this error.

  2. Unfortunately no, the number of stripes were exactly the same. The bug was valid 🙁

    Hi Jason
    Do you have a thread for Repserver 12.6 questions?
