E1099: SM_E_SDA_CRASHED: SDA has crashed


  • Product Name: CaliberRM
  • Product Version: Any supported Version
  • Product Component: Database
  • Platform/OS Version: All


I cannot login to my server and my Caliber_srv.log displayed this error.

"VersantException: Source = PError; Response = E1099: SM_E_SDA_CRASHED: SDA has crashed ("ut/ss.c", line 2241); File = .\CaliberPersistantS.cpp; Line = 174; Number = 1099 at(.\CaliberServer.cpp,404) "


The error shows that the database server process has died due to lack of system resources and/or due to an inconsistency seen by the VERSANT database. Versant uses shared memory and semaphores for its inter-process communications. If an application does not finish normally, shared memory resources may not be released.

If this occurs, please reboot your CaliberRM server and try again.
