nl__write_defer: write failed on socket nnn. : The device does not recognize the command.

This is frequently reported in a Sybase ASE 12.5.4/EBF 14925 ESD#7/P/NT (IX86) on Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise Edition Service Pack 2 (x86) Please help to find out what is it for, how it can be remediated?

Is this related to partner.sybase.com/partnerportal/detail?id=10831 –  Jeff Stice-Hall Jan 14 '13 at 3:06
No, I am using sybase ASE. I have written the version of it and the windows version above. –  HumayunM Jan 14 '13 at 3:42
I guess you changed the question. No, the link is for older versions of sybase (prior to SQL Server 11.0.3) –  HumayunM Jan 14 '13 at 4:03
