ODB does not support persistent class templates. The persistent data
(m_id and m_version in your case) rarely depends on the template
argument (it doesn't in your case) so what you can do is split your
base into two classes:

#pragma db object optimistic
class BaseData
  #pragma db id auto
  long long m_id;

  #pragma db version
  const unsigned long long m_version;

// Note: not persistent object
template <class T>
class Base 

#pragma db object
class Derived : public Base<Derived>, public BaseData
