If the cause of the failure is known

If the error logs or messages clearly indicate the cause of failure, and you do not believe your databases were damaged, you can attempt to fix the problem and re-run the upgrade immediately.

  1. Exit the sqlupgrade program.

  2. Perform the necessary actions to fix the problem.

    For example, if the error log indicates that the upgrade failed because your existing databases do not contain enough space, use the alter database command to increase the available space.

  3. It may be necessary to shut down Adaptive Server. Follow the instructions for “Stopping Adaptive Server”.

    Shutting down the server enables the installation program to start the server and re-run the upgrade session.

  4. Start sqlupgrade again.

  5. Select Upgrade Adaptive Server, and proceed with the upgrade.
