Important Advisory Notes

  • If you want to run DBArtisan on Microsoft Windows 8.1, verify that third-party DBMS native drivers install properly. Consider using a JDBC connection.

Known Issues

  • The current version of DBArtisan does not support the MySQL ODBC client that shipped with previous versions of DBArtisan. If DBArtisan crashes after connecting to a MySQL data source:
    1. Close DBArtisan.
    2. Uninstall the older MySQL ODBC client.
    3. Restart DBArtisan and try connecting to a MySQL datasource. You are prompted to install the MySQL client drivers.
    4. Follow the installation instructions to install the new driver.
  • Note that when debugging a procedure against an Oracle data source, DBartisan performs a compilation before debugging. During a compilation, Oracle invalidates referencing objects. For example, if procedures A2 and A3 both reference procedure A1, debugging procedure A1 in DBArtisan, will result in procedures A2 and A3 being invalidated.
  • In some situations the Database Monitor may prompt to connect to an already connected datasource if auto-connect is not enabled for that datasource
  • DBArtisan installs the incorrect stored procedures for Capacity Analyst for a Sybase 15 database. Please refer to this Knowledge Base article: www.embarcadero.com/jive/entry.jspa?externalID=1030&caID=2
  • For servers running on Sybase version 12.5.3a, the CREATE ENCRYPTION KEY and DECRYPT permissions do not display properly--they'll be shown as null. See Sybase's document CR392544 ("sp_helpprotect does not show privileges related to encryption keys."). This has been fixed in ASE version 12.5.3a/ESD#1 (now available as a download) and ASE version 12.5.4.
  • The SQL Server Agent failing problem is caused by the lack of permission to enumerate the status of the server service. To determine the status of the server, the user must have permission to check the status of the server service. If the user running DBArtisan on the client machine is a not a local user who can be authenticated on the server machine, the Server Agent jobs will fail.
Workaround:
  1. If the user running DBArtisan is not a domain user, create the same user with the same password on the server.
  2. If the user is a domain user, make sure that the user can log on to the server.
  • When you are using the Debugger:
    • The Debugger windows (Variables, Watch, CallStack, Dependency) cannot be undocked. This behavior is deliberate and is true only for the Debugger windows. The Output window can be undocked.
    • When running Windows XP SP2, SQL Server 2000 SP4 is required on both the client and the server.
    • When running the Debugger on SQL Server 2005 CLIENTS:
      1. Check that the file ssdebugps.dll is registered on the client machine. This file is REQUIRED for debugging and Microsoft only installs it on the server machine and not as a part of a client-only install.
      2. Follow the instructions under the "Configure DCOM on the computer that is running Visual Studio. NET" heading from Microsoft to reconfigure the DCOM settings on your client machine: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=833977.
      3. On the Default Properties tab of the My Computer dialog box, make sure the Default Authentication Level is set to None and that the Default Impersonation Level is set to Impersonate.
    • When using the Embarcadero Sybase debugger against a Sybase database with multiple temporary databases (supported in Sybase ASE 12.5.0.3 and above), either the user or the debugger application must be bound to a specific temporary database.
  • To bind the Embarcadero Sybase Debugger:
sp_tempdb "bind" , "ap", "Sybase Debugger", "DB", "<tempdb name>"
  • To bind the user:
sp_tempdb "bind", "lg", "<login id>", "DB", "<tempdb name>"
  • The BCP (bulk copy) data movement option is disabled for cross-platform migration. In addition, to use the BCP in a Sybase-to-Sybase migration, the user must be logged in as System Administrator *or* the "select into/bulkcopy/pllsort" database option must be true on the target catalog. If this option is "false" on the target catalog, BCP will not appear as a data movement option for non-system users.
  • Schema migration jobs created in earlier versions of DBArtisan that were saved with a .migrate file extension must be re-created in DBArtisan 8.1 or later. Only migration jobs with a .sav extension can be reused.
  • DBArtisan is currently unable to create table names, column names, and check constraint names longer than 18 characters on an OS390 mainframe database.
  • On SQL Server 2005, the Browser component is disabled by default. With this service disabled, in DBArtisan you cannot reference SQL Server instances by name, only by port number. If you want the ability to reference SQL Server instances by name, you must enable this service on the server.
