BUG# OS/2: 1641 (4.2)
If a database device is not available to SQL Server during startup, SQL Server should issue error 840:
Device ‘%. s’ (with physical name ’%. s’, and virtual device number %d) has not been correctly activated at startup time. Please contact the System Administrator.
Instead SQL Server issues error 822:
Could not start I/O for request %S_BLKIOPTR.
This condition usually occurs if the device’s .DAT file is deleted while SQL Server is not running. If the .DAT file resides on a network file server, it may occur if the SQL Server server loses its connection to the file server.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SQL Server versions 4.2 and 4.2a for OS/2. This problem was corrected in SQL Server version 4.2aK10. For more information, contact your primary support provider.
