Error: No process is on the other end of the pipe

Postby lkeith » Mon Sep 17, 2012 8:26 pm

I am using SQL Compare 8. When trying to synch a script repository with a SQL DB I am getting this:

Comparing database Scripts.Rex with database Rollout.rex_beta_dev...
Registering data sources
Error: Comparison of 'Scripts.Rex' and 'Rollout.rex_beta_dev' failed: A
connection was successfully established with the server, but then an error
occurred during the login process. (provider: Shared Memory Provider, error: 0 -No process is on the other end of the pipe.)

I get a return code of 126. Your list of return codes does not go this high. Where do I find info on this and other return codes?

I have resolved on part of the issue; the DB being synched did not exist at the time. But I would like to know where I could have found any explanation for a return code of 126 or any other code.

Exit Codes
0 - Success.
1 - General error code.
3 - Illegal argument duplication. Some arguments may not appear more than
once in a command-line. If such arguments appear more than once this
exit code will be returned.
8 - Unsatisfied argument dependency or violated exclusion when user runs
command line. E.g. /arg2 depends on /arg1 but you have specified /arg2
without specifying /arg1, or alternatively /arg2 cannot be used with
/arg1 but you have tried to use them both.
32 - Value out of range. Numeric value supplied for an argument that is
outside the range of valid values for that argument.
33 - Value overflow. The magnitude of a value supplied for an argument is too
large and causes an overflow.

I was looking at this page, ... Exit_Codes

which includes codes only up to 73.
