It’s common to see many connection problems from SCM system to LiveCache Databases after SCM/LiveCache upgrades. One common symptom of this are errors in the DB59 connection tests and also short dumps during SCM activities with the following errors:

Runtime Errors         DBIF_DSQL2_CONNECTERR
Except.                CX_SY_NATIVE_SQL_ERROR

Short text
     Error setting up a secondary database connection

What happened?
     Connection to database system not possible with identifier “LCA”.

Also, we can see in SAP work process trace:

This kind of problem, can have many causes(wrong environment settings, wrong LiveCache client version installed, wrong LiveCache connection parameters, etc..).
