MaxDB - autolog_on but errors out

(newbie) Recently restored a production database to a test system. I need this system up yesterday but can't get a straight answer out of support. Was instructed by SAP to issue after the restore (or homogenous copy):

dbmcli -d N01 -u control,control load_systab -u superdba,admin -ud domain - which I will learn about more later

Now I have to activate autolog. When I check autolog .. dbmcli -d SDB -u control,control autolog_show -- AUTOSAVE IS OFF

How do I get it ON? Seems to be a simple question.

    Hello Mike,

    You could check it also with dbm command "info log", if Log Automatic Overwritei is on.

    If you activated the overwrite mode for the log area, the log area is
    overwritten cyclically, and you do not need to back up the log entries.
    The log backup history is interrupted. Only the log entries of the log
    area are available if you need to recover the database.

    For more information, please see the notes:
