Hello -

I've been using db files running on ASA 8.0.2.4274 from a
windows platform and moving them to my Linux ASA 8.0.2.4308
for a while now with no problems.

I upgraded my window db server to 9.0.1.1751 and my Linux
db server to 9.0.0.1292 and I can't use the db file on my
Linux box. I get the famous, capability 32 missing message.

What is the issue here? Is it just the 9.0.0 v. 9.0.1? If
so, when can I get a 9.0.1.xxxx for Linux?

Help
Eric

What the "missing capability" message is trying to tell you is that
you're trying to run an older engine against a database that was created
by newer software. As hard as we try, it's tough to make software
forwards-compatible ;-)

There's no difficulty running a 9.0.0 database with a 9.0.1 server. For
that matter, unless you require 9.x features that need a 9.x database
(named CHECK constraints, cache warming, index consultant) there's no
problem running either of the 9.x releases on an 8.0.2 database.

9.0.1 UNIX ports will be available *very* soon.
