MODE=SINGLE question...

I’m trying to get to the bottom of something… And I am still not sure if the information I am receiving about this issue is correct. Anyway… The ADABAS ADARUN (ADA7.4.4) parms for the active session shows “MODE=SINGLE” (this is in the start-up messages); however, when database 215 actually starts up, the messages show:
ADAN01 00215 A D A B A S V7.4.4 is active
ADAN01 00215 Running without recovery log

The question is, if the PARM specifies MODE=SINGLE, why would the nuc come up as MODE=MULTI?? Are there certain conditions that would cause this?

Thanks for any advice. (I will also post this in other boards.)
