Jira issue originally created by user gedrox:

When recreating database using


the second line fails with error that the sequence "tbl*id*seq" already exists. It's because the sequence is created without an owner column and schema tool doesn't include "drop sequence" statements in the drop SQL.

I've created a patch which fixes the problem for my environment. Revision numbers in patch is from the local SVN. Doctrine base is 2.0.5.

That will always drop all sequences also when you only pass some classes in there. We need to find a better solution for this problem.

I don't know if this is the right place to add a comment because this bug is quite old, and if anyone will see it but the code that fixed the reported bug seems to create a bug on my setup. The SchemaTool tries to drop two times the sequences, which produces an error.

The following SQL is generated :

ALTER TABLE utilisateurs DROP CONSTRAINT fk_497b315e7634f637;
ALTER TABLE utilisateurs DROP CONSTRAINT fk_497b315e19863134;
DROP SEQUENCE civilites*civ_id*seq;
DROP SEQUENCE utilisateursClientType*ucty_id*seq;
DROP SEQUENCE utilisateurs*user_id*seq;
DROP SEQUENCE civilites*civ_id*seq;
DROP SEQUENCE utilisateursclienttype*ucty_id*seq;
DROP SEQUENCE utilisateurs*user_id*seq;
DROP TABLE civilites;
DROP TABLE utilisateursClientType;
DROP TABLE utilisateurs

I'm using postgres 9.1.8, Doctrine 2.3.2
