Subject NULL in system table RDB$GENERATORS
Author Ulrich


actually I'm working with different databases which all should have
the same database structure. They are not physical copies. Some
databases are modified over months of developments, some of them are
created from scratch by script.

Now I found out, that in some databases in system table RDB$GENRATORS
the field RDB$SYSTEM_FLAG is 'NULL' for user defined generators and in
other databases the field has the correct value '0'.

Actually I can't say which customers has which database. So I would
like to ask if this is something I should worry about and which
further consequences this might bring?

With the actual FB version I can't build a database version with this
described 'NULL' behaviour in table RDB$GENRATORS.

Any recommendations or comments about this?
