Hmm. If you upgraded your schema during the 1.8 -> 1.9 move, you should
be running the 106 schema, which should have the last_cid entry in the
Can you run a "select * from schema" to make sure that you're running
106. If you are, then run a "desc sensor" and see if it includes the
last_cid field. If it does not, then run:
ALTER TABLE sensor ADD last_cid INT UNSIGNED NOT NULL
That should add that column with the correct datatype. I'd still be
somewhat curious why it isn't there if the schema table says it's 106,
