-oe server option

Specifies a file name to log startup errors, fatal errors, and assertions.

{ dbsrv11 | dbeng11 } -oe filename ...
Applies to

All operating systems and database servers.


Each line in the output log file is prefixed with the date and time. Startup errors include such errors as:

  • Couldn't open/read database file: database file
  • A database server with that name has already started

Fatal errors and assertions are logged to the Windows Application Event Log (except on Windows Mobile) or the Unix system log regardless of whether -oe is specified.

It is recommended that you do not end the file name with .log because this can create problems for utilities that perform operations using the transaction log.
