shrink database device

Hello all,

I know that with Sybase ASE 15.7 you can shrink log space with the following command (example for the saptools):

alter database saptools log off logsaptools_1 = '200M'

I have tried it out and it works fine.

Is there also a possibility to shrink the device logsaptools_1 afterwards?

Kind regards,


Former Member

Dear Mr Hoerner

Shrink database is supported for SAP Netweaver systems if ASE is 15.7 SP110 or higher.

Further important information are available in SAP notes

1943890 - SYB: Release information for SAP Sybase ASE with SAP Business Suite

(SAP System must be offline, full database backup must be performed after wards)
