Upgrading from the early adopter release
Upgrading from the Early Adopter release is not supported. If you have data
that you wish to save contained in the Early Adopter release, back it up using
bcp out. Then, uninstall the Early Adopter release as described in the Release
Notes for that version.
Network setup
Before proceeding with the installation, make sure your system is using a
resolvable host name for its network connection. Your machine is known to
TCP/IP by the name returned by the shell command ‘hostname -s’. You must be
able to successfully execute a ping command to this name. From a terminal
window, execute:
% ping ‘hostname -s’
When you configure your machine’s name, be sure that there are no dashes in
the name; Adaptive Server cannot use dashes in object names.
If this does not succeed, use NetInfo to configure a resolved host name on your
system manually:
1
Start NetInfo Manager in /Applications/Utilitiesby double-clicking on its
icon from a Finder window.
2
Duplicate the localhost entry and give it the name of your machine.
To do this:
•
2
Click the authentication icon to get system administrator status.
CHAPTER 1

Release contents
This distribution is provided with a Developer’s Edition license that enables
single-CPU operation, and restricts the number of concurrent users to 25. All
other available features are automatically enabled, and there is no expiration
period. To enable usage authorized by your purchase agreement, you must
provide license keys using the License Entry application in the
/Applications/Sybase directory.
Besides Adaptive Server Enterprise version 12.5.02, this release provides you
with some interactive tools to help you use and configure your database. These
tools can be launched from the Finder by double-clicking on their icons, which
may also be dragged to the Dock, if desired.
•
jISQL – an interactive query tool that enables you to submit SQL
statements to the server, and view their results within a window.
•
SybaseCentral – allows a database administrator to create tables,
databases, users, and so on using an easy-to-use graphical interface.
•
Server Build – an interactive graphical configuration utility that allows
you to define the parameters of a new server build, and then performs
actions necessary to build a new server according to those parameters.
•
Sybase Server Discovery – uses Rendezvous technology to display the
name and location of all servers running on your network. Each Sybase
server registers itself with Rendezvous when it starts, and Sybase Server
Discovery shows you where each of these servers is located. Also, the
Configuration option allows you to automatically generate and update
entries in the interfaces file, for each server selected in the list.
•
License Entry – allows you to enter information about your purchased
software, and generates a software license key for you.

Otherwise select cancel and the License Entry application exits. See
“Sybase Software Asset Management” for more details.
Environment variables
Add entries to your login script (.login) so that Sybase environment variables
area always set. An example of this is contained in
/Applications/Sybase/System/SYBASE.csh. If you do not have a .login script in
your home directory, you can use the .cshrc file. By default, user accounts do
not contain a .login or a .cshrc script and you must create one. If you do not,
the login daemon looks to /etc/csh.login and /etc/csh.cshrc.

CHAPTER 1
Installing Adaptive Server
Viewing servers that are running on your network
Adaptive Server, along with its associated Backup Server and XP Server,
registers with the network using Rendezvous technology, so that any
Rendezvous client can discover what services are available. We have provided
a service discovery tool for Sybase servers, called Server Discovery. Click
Server Discovery from the Finder:
Figure 1-14: Service discovery tool
When you run this application, you see a list of available servers, showing
service name, host name, port number, and a text file that contains the server
type, version, and process ID:
17
Verifying that you can connect to servers
Figure 1-15: Server Discovery text file
You can use its Configuration menu item to automatically update the Sybase
interfaces file for those servers that you have highlighted in the window.
In addition, the sample program ctos, in /Applications/Sybase/System/OCS12_5/sample/srvlibrary, contains an example of how to register an Open
Server™ application with Rendezvous, that can be detected by Server
Discovery.
Verifying that you can connect to servers
To verify that the newly installed server is accessible, double-click the jISQL
icon:

CHAPTER 1
Installing Adaptive Server
Connecting to Adaptive Server via Sybase Central
Sybase Central provides a graphical user interface for Adaptive Server
administrative tasks. Sybase Central displays a hierarchical list of all servers in
the left pane and a details list of the selected server in the right pane. To select
a server, click on it with the mouse in the left pane.
To start Sybase Central:
1
Double-click the Sybase Central icon from the Finder.
2
Select Tools | Connect, then, from the drop-down list, select the server to
which you want to connect.
3
In the Login window, enter the System Administrator’s user name and
password. You must log in as the System Administrator to perform
administrative tasks.
4
Click OK.
Warning! The first time you log in to Adaptive Server, use the default “sa” user
name and leave the password blank. After you log in for the first time, change
the system administrator’s password. See “Setting the System Administrator
password” on page 21 for more information.
Sybase Central has online help files. To access the online help for a server,
right-click the server icon, and select Online Help from the drop-down list. To
access online help for Sybase Central, select Help from the menu bar, then
select Sybase Central Help.
Setting the System Administrator password
A user account called “sa” is created for the Sybase System Administrator
when you install Sybase software. A user logged in as “sa” can use any
database on Adaptive Server, including master, with full privileges.
Immediately after a new installation, there is no password on the “sa” account.
The System Administrator should log in to the new Adaptive Server as “sa”
and set a password using sp_password.
Connect to the server by double-clicking the jISQL icon in the
/Applications/Sybase folder. Connect to the server, and send this command:
21
Starting and stopping Adaptive Server
sp_password null, new_password
where null is the default password and new_password is the password that you
are assigning to the “sa” account.
Starting and stopping Adaptive Server
Once you have installed the server, you may need to stop it, or to reinitialize it
using an alternative disk location. you can stop the server by sending this
Transact-SQL command to the server:
shutdown [with nowait]
You can send this command either by using jISQL, or by executing
/Applications/Sybase/System/OCS-12_5/bin/isql.
You can also stop the server by using this operating system command, although
this method is not recommended, as data corruption may occur.
sudo kill -9 <pid>
where <pid> is obtained from another operating system command:
ps -ax | grep dataserver
Warning! Use the kill command only as a last resort.
Once the server is stopped, you can restart it in one of two ways:
•
Open the Terminal window, and execute the startserver command found in
/Applications/Sybase/System/ASE-12_5/install:
startserver -f RUN_hostname_SYBASE
•
22
From the Finder, double-click the Start_servername.command file in
/Applications/Sybase. The command file is recognized by the Finder as a
shell script.
CHAPTER 1
Installing Adaptive Server
Rebuilding Adaptive Server
You may need to rebuild the databases created during the install process for the
following reasons:
•
You want to use an alternative disk device for the database devices,
perhaps for faster disks.
•
You need to change the size of the pages within the database.
You can rebuild the server in one of two ways:
•
Using the bootstrap shell script in /Applications/Sybase/System/ASE12_5/install – you can edit this script to take action as necessary. The script
installs a new server using srvbuildres which is driven by a resource file.
You can edit the resource files used by the bootstrap script to override
default values for the installation.
•
Using Server Build – a graphical interface to the srvbuildres utility. Server
Build collects input from you and uses it to create resource files used by
srvbuildres.
Changing the default character set, sort order or
language
Adaptive Server supports a wide variety of character sets are supported and
messages can be localized to suit your particular user community. By default,
Adaptive Server is installed with a default character set of iso_1 (ISO 8859-1,
in ISO terminology), a binary sort order, and U.S. English as the default
language.
To display Adaptive Server error messages in a language other than U.S.
English (us_english), you must load the appropriate language module.
To change the default character set, sort order, or language, see the complete
discussion of the procedure in the System Administration Guide. We strongly
recommend that you read chapters 7 and 8 in that document. You can find this
book online at http://sybooks.sybase.com/asg1250e.html.
A simplified procedure for doing this is described here.
Make all changes to the default character set and sort order for a new Adaptive
Server before creating any user databases or making any changes to the
Sybase-supplied databases.
23
Installing online help for Transact-SQL syntax
Changing the default character set and sort order
You can change the default character set by using the charset utility. You can
use this utility only from the UNIX shell, so you must open a Terminal window.
The utility is found at /Applications/Sybase/System/ASE-12_5/bin/charset. To
change Adaptive Server’s defaults:
1
Run the charset utility to add the character set to Adaptive Server’s system
catalogues.
2
Execute the sp_configure stored procedure to set the default character set.
3
Restart the server. The server comes up, performs any necessary
reconfiguration it needs to do internally, and then shut itself down. You can
then restart it.
Note Perform these steps before you add any user data to the Adaptive Server.
If your server contains data, follow the procedure outlines in the System
Administration Guide to save and restore it.
Changing the default language
Client programs may require messages to be delivered in in a language other
than U.S. English. If this is the case, run the sp_modifylogin stored procedure to
specify which language is preferred. The specified language must first be
installed by the System Administrator using the langinstall utility, found in
/Applications/Sybase/System/ASE-12_5/bin/langinstall.
Installing online help for Transact-SQL syntax
This section provides instructions for installing online help for Transact-SQL
syntax.
Online syntax help: sp_syntax
There is a script for installing the syntax help database, sybsyntax. You can
retrieve this data with the sp_syntax system procedure. The script is located in
$SYBASE/$SYBASE_ASE/scripts/ins-syn-sql.
24
CHAPTER 1
Installing Adaptive Server
For more information on sp_syntax, see the Reference Manual. This script
includes syntax information for Transact-SQL, the system procedures, and the
Sybase utilities. When you execute this script, you install the SQL portion of
the sybsyntax database.
When you first execute this script, it creates the sybsyntax database and the
necessary tables and indexes. If you execute the script again, the previously
installed rows of information are deleted from the table in the database and then
reinstalled.
Default device for the sybsyntax database
By default, the sybsyntax script installs the sybsyntax database on the device
that is designated as the default database device.
If you have not changed the status of the master device (which is installed as
the default disk) or specified another default device, the script automatically
installs sybsyntax on the master device. Sybase does not recommend this
configuration because sybsyntax uses valuable space that is best left available
for future expansion of the master database.
To avoid installing sybsyntax on the master device, do one of the following:
•
Us sp_diskdefault to specify a default device other than the master device.
For information about sp_diskdefault, see the Reference Manual.
•
Modify each sybsyntax installation script that you plan to execute to
specify a different device, as explained in the following section.
Installing sybsyntax
For each sybsyntax installation script you want to execute:
•
Determine the device location where you plan to store the sybsyntax
database.
•
Make a copy of the original script. Be sure you can access this copy, in
case you experience problems with the edited script.
•
Use a text editor to edit the script, if necessary, to change the default device
from the master device to a new default device.
•
Comment out the following section, which specifies the default device:
/*create the database, if it does not exist */
25
Installing online help for Transact-SQL syntax
/* is the space left on the default database devices
> size of model? */
if (select sum (high-low + 1)from sysdevices
where status & 1 = 1) - (select sum(size) from
sysusage, sysdevices
where vstart >= sysdevices.low
and vstart <= sysdevices.high
and sysdevices.status &1 = 1) >
(select sum(sysusages.size)
from sysusages where dbid =
3
begin
create database sybsyntax
end
else
begin
print "There is not enough room on the default
devices to create the sybsyntax database."
return
end
end
•
After you have commented out this entire section, add this line to the
script:
create database sybsyntax on device_name
where device_name is the name of the device on which you want to install
sybsyntax.
•
Execute:
isql -Usa -Ppassword -Sservername
-i$SYBASE/$SYBASE_ASE/scripts/ins_syn_sql
where sa is the user ID of the System Administrator, password is the
System Administrator’s password, and servername is the Adaptive Server
on which you plan to install the database.
To ensure that you have installed the sybsyntax database and that it is
working correctly, use isql to log in to the server on which you installed the
database, and execute sp_syntax. For example:
isql -Usa -Ppassword -Sservername
1> sp_syntax "select"
2> go
26
CHAPTER 1
Installing Adaptive Server
Adaptive Server displays a list of commands that contain the word or word
fragment “select.”
Sybase XP Server
XP Server is automatically installed by the build process. The default name of
the XP Server is hostname_XP.
Starting Sybase services automatically
By copying some files to the system’s /Library/StartupItems directory, you can
ensure that Sybase services automatically start when your system starts opr
restarts. In /Applications/Sybase/System/Install/StartupItems, more the
following directories to /Library/StartupItems to enable the associated services
to automatically start when the system is restarted:
•
SybaseAdaptiveServerEnterprise – contains files necessary to
automatically start Adaptive Server. You may need to edit the shell script
in this directory to refer to the correct server name that is to be started.
•
SybaseLicenseManager – contains scripts necessary to automatically start
the license manager daemon.
•
SybaseAgent – contains scripts necessary to automatically start the Sybase
SNMP subagent, which is designed to work with the NetSNMP agent.
These directories contain an executable shell script of the same name as the
parent directory, and a property list file. To enable automatic startup of any of
these services, copy its directory to /Library/StartupItems. Each subdirectory
of the StartupItems directory is examined during the system’s startup sequence,
and the services that can be started at that time are launched.
Note Your system may not have the /Library/StartupItems directory. If not,
then you must create it. This and the copy operation should be done in an
account that has Admin privileges, by way of the sudo command.
27
Sybase SNMP subagent
Sybase SNMP subagent
The Sybase SNMP subagent allows SNMP-based network monitoring and
error notification for Sybase servers. This subagent features:
•
Support for V1, V2c, and V3 SNMP
•
Implementation of NETWORK-SERVICES-MIB, RBDMS-MIB,
SYBASE-MIB
•
Trap generation on server errors via the sp_errornotify remote procedure
call
•
Support for Adaptive Server and Open Server-based Sybase servers
•
JavaSource code distribution for the subagent
Installation
Net-SNMP Master Agent
The sybase SNMP Subagent uses the Agent X protocol for extending the
capabilities of a master agent. It works with any master agent that implements
the Agent X protocol. Included with this subagent is a distribution of the NetSNMP master agent. This is a very feature-rich master agent available through
the public domain. More information on it can be found at http://www.netsnmp.org. The Sybase subagent was implemented and tested against version
5.0.1 of the Net-SNMP master agent.
Note Mac OS X Server 10.2 ships with version 4.2.3 of the Net-SNMP agent
already installed. This version does not work correctly with Agent X
extensions. Future releases of OS X may automatically include the newer
version of Net-SNMP making its installation unnecessary.
To install the Net-SNMP master agent, see the Readme.txt file included in its
distribution. Once the Net-SNMP agent is configured and installed, edit
/System/Library/StartupItems/SNMP/SNMP to add the parameter “-x 705”
which enables the Agent X extension. When you are finished, the file should
look like this:
#!/bin/sh
##
# Start net-snmp
28
CHAPTER 1
Installing Adaptive Server
##
./etc/rc.common
if ["${SNMPSERVER:=-NO-}" = "-YES-" ]; then
ConsoleMessage "Starting SNMP server"
/usr/sbin/snmpd -x 705
fi
Sybase subagent
To install the Sybase SNMP subagent, first edit snmpagent.cfg in
/Applications/Sybase/System/SNMP-1_0 to include entries for each server that
is to be monitored. There is no limit to the number of servers that can be
monitored by the Sybase subagent.Typically, the subagent resides on the same
machine as the monitored server. The snmpagent.cfg file contains
documentation for configuration settings.
To test the Sybase subagent, you can start it from the command line by
executing:
java -jar $SYBASE/SNMP-1_0/lib/SybaseAgent \
-c $SYBASE/SNMP-1_0/snmpagent.cfg
A log file is produced in the location specified in snmpagent.cfg, or in
./SybaseAgent.log if a log file location was not specified.
Once the Sybase subagent is configured, you can set it up to automatically run
at system start-up by moving the Sybase Agent folder to /Library/StartupItems,
as described in “Starting Sybase services automatically” on page 27.
MIB files
The mibs directory contains the MIB definitions that are supported by the
Sybase subagent. Install these into your network management system. If you
are going to use the SNMP command line tools that come with the Net-SNMP
distribution, you must copy these mibs into /usr/share/snmp/mibs. Once this is
done, you can issue a test query:
setenv MIBS RDBMS-MIB
snmpwalk -nc public localhost
29
Sybase SNMP subagent
This command should walk through and return values for several MIBs
including RDBMS-MIB. For more information on the SNMP command line
tool issue man snmpwalk and man snmcmd.
Configuring trap generation from Adaptive Server
The Sybase subagent allows a Sybase server to generate a trap through a
remote procedure call, sp_errornotify. When the remote procedure is called, a
trap is generated containing the values in its parameters. sp_errornotify can be
used from within any stored procedure. You may want, for example, to use this
mechanism in the implementation of your sp_thresholdaction actions.
To use this:
•
•
The Sybase SNMP agent contains an Open Server implementation. Add
an entry for the Sybase SNMP agent to your $SYBASE/interfaces file. Use
the rpcPort value you specified in snmpagent.cfg as its port address. The
name of the server can be any valid server name.
Add the Sybase subagent as a remote server to your Adaptive Server using
sp_addserver. Use the same name you specified in the interfaces file entry.
You can let the server type default to Adaptive Server.
•
Enable cis rpc handling by running sp_configure, or issue the command set
cis_rpc_handling prior to the procedure call.
•
Issue the sp_errornotify procedure using this syntax:
<snmpsubagentname>...sp_errornotify
servername,errno,serverity,state,username,spid,
engine,msg
servername
errno
severity
state
username
spid
engine
msg
-
The name of the server (@@servername)
The error number (integer)
The error severity (integer)
The error state (integer)
Adaptive Server user name
Server process id (@@spid)
The engine number (integer)
The text of the error message
The values given are not validated by the SNMP agent, they are simply
converted to variables to the sybRaiseError trap defined in SYBASE-MIB.
30
CHAPTER 1
•
Installing Adaptive Server
The Sybase subagent maintains a table of the most recent 500 errors raised
through sp_errornotify. These values can be retrieved from the
aseErrorTable table definition in SYBASE-MIB.
Troubleshooting the installation
Please refer to the Release Bulletin for a complete list of known problems. If
you cannot connect to the server, there are several things that you should check:
•
On configurations that do not utilize a DNS server, some applications such
as jISQL may have a problem connecting to a local server using the name
‘localhost’. To work around this problem, enter ‘127.0.0.1’ as the host
name in the jISQL host name field. This issue is still under investigation.
The Sybase installation process assumes the host name of your system is
the same as returned by the shell command ‘hostname -s’. This name is
used in entries within the interfaces file.
•
If you attempted the installation a second time, the installer indicates that
your second attempt is an Upgrade, rather than a new Install. In this case,
the server is not restarted after the installation or upgrade process is
completed. To start the server, completely uninstall the software as
described in the next section, and start over.
If these problems do not describe your situation, use our newsgroup to describe
the problem and we will respond as soon as we can. Convey the following
information in your problem description.
•
System configuration – type of Apple computer, memory, disk space
available, processor, DNS configuration.
•
Problem description – be as concise as you can.

Uninstalling Sybase software
Uninstalling Sybase software
To uninstall Sybase software, use the uninstall script in
/Applications/Sybase/System/Install.
Note This script removes everything in /Applications/Sybase. Use it carefully.
If you have set up your system to automatically restart Sybase services, these
StartupItems are also deleted. Finally, the receipt for the installation, found in
/Library/Receipts is removed.
uninstall requires a single argument, override, before it removes installation
files. You must have superuser privileges to run uninstall.
sudo ./uninstall override

Sybase Software Asset
Management
This chapter describes important concepts regarding how to license
optional Adaptive Server features, add new licenses to existing servers, set
up the license manager in a network environment, and set up redundant
servers for high availability and failover using Sybase Software Asset
Management (SySAM).
You need to refer back to this chapter when you begin intalling Adapive
Server in a network environment.
SySAM overview
SySAM is a licensing mechanism that:
•
Provides System Administrators with a means to monitor their site’s
use of Sybase products and optional features.
•
Enables select Adaptive Server optional features.
•
Enables failover to other registered installations of Adaptive Server
in the event of failure.
Adaptive Server base license
Adaptive Server can be licensed in one of three editions:
•
Enterprise Edition
•
Small Business Edition
•
Developer’s Edition
33
Adaptive Server check-out procedure
When Adaptive Server is initially installed on the Mac OS X platform it
includes a Developer’s Edition (ASE_DEV) license bundled with the software.
This is true no matter which edition was purchased. The Developer’s Edition
of Adaptive Server has several limits on its use. For example, no more than one
database engine and no more than 25 user connections.) However, it does
enable all of the available optional non-royalty features. It is designed for a
development environment. The Developer’s Edition does not require a license
daemon and no license keys need to be entered. When ready to deploy the
application a Small Business or Enterprise license must be purchased.
The next step up is the Small Business Edition (ASE_SBE), which is designed
for a small to mid-size business. There are limits on its use as well. For
example, no more than four database engines and n o more than 250 users. In
addition, some optional features (such as Distributed Transaction
Management) are not available for the Small Business Edition. None of the
optional features are enabled unless a separate license key is entered for the
feature. If the Small Business Edition is what was purchased, then an
ASE_SBE license key must be entered after the base Adaptive Server
installation is complete. The Small Business Edition requires a license daemon.
The Enterprise Edition (ASE_SERVER) is the traditional high-end database
server. There are no limits and all available optional features can be purchased
for use. Like the Small Business Edition, the Enterprise Edition does not enable
any optional features unless a separate license key has been entered for the
feature. If the Enterprise Edition is what was purchased then an ASE_SERVER
license key must be entered after the basic Adaptive Server installation is
complete. The Enterprise Edition requires a license daemon
In summary, if what was purchased was the Developer’s Edition, then nothing
needs to be done with regard to license management. If a Small Business or
Enterprise Edition was purchased, then a base server license must be entered
(either ASE_SBE or ASE_SERVER) and then any optional feature license
keys can be entered.
Adaptive Server check-out procedure
When you start Adaptive Server version 12.5, it attempts to locate the license
file license.dat located in $SYBASE/$SYBASE_SYSAM/licenses. If the file does
not exist, Adaptive Server looks for the license file specified in the
environment variable LM_LICENSE_FILE.
34
CHAPTER 2
Sybase Software Asset Management
For a Developer’s Edition all that is in the license file is a Developer’s Edition
license key (ASE_DEV). The Adaptive Server examines the license and as
long as it is valid continues starting. Because it is a Developer’s Edition all
optional non-royalty features are enabled.
For Small Business or Enterprise Edition the license file contains a pointer to
the SySAM software on the primary server known as the license host, or to a
remote license host where SySAM is running. SySAM consists of a utility,
lmutil, to manage licensing activities, and two daemons – the license
management daemon (lmgrd) and the vendor daemon (SYBASE). The
daemons handle requests to check in or check out licensed features.
Using information in the license file, Adaptive Server connects to SySAM and
attempts to check out a license (ASE_SERVER or ASE_SBE) for the base
Adaptive Server product. If the ADE_SERVER or ASE_SBE license is
checked out successfully, Adaptive Server continues to start and attempts to
check out any optional features enabled in server_name.cfg.
Utilities
If Adaptive Server is configured to use optional features, such as External File
Access (ASE_XFS) or Java in the database (ASE_JAVA), it attempts to check
out licenses for those features during the start-up process. If a license is not
available for an optional feature, Adaptive Server still starts, but the feature
cannot be used.
Starting Adaptive Server with optional features
You can use sp_configure parameters to turn on or off optional features. The
following parameters are used to configure optional features:
35
Adaptive Server check-out procedure
Table 2-1: Configuration parameters for optional features
Feature name
License name
Java in ASE
External File System
ASE_JAVA
ASE_XFS
Configuration
parameter
enable java
enable file access
By default, the configuration parameters for optional features are set to 0 (off).
To enable an optional feature use sp_configure to set its configuration
parameter to 1, and restart Adaptive Server. Some features require additional
preparation before you can use them. For more information see Table 2-1 and
the Configuration Guide.

For more information about Java in Adaptive Server, see Java in Adaptive
Server Enterprise.

For information on External File Access see Component Integration
Services User’s Guide.
Types of SySAM systems
The basic components of SySAM can be arranged for a standalone server, for
a collection of servers on a network accessing a primary license host, and with
multiple, redundant servers across a LAN or a WAN, and for backup and load
balancing purposes. Depending on which instance of Adaptive Server (primary
or secondary servers) you are installing, the procedures for registering licenses
vary.
In a standalone system, all of the SySAM components
reside on a single machine. The license file points directly to the asset
management software, which runs on the same machine. This machine is called
the license host.
Standalone system
Network system In a network system, the license host runs SySAM, which
handles check-in and check-out requests from all secondary servers.
The license file for secondary servers contain only pointers to the license host.
Secondary servers check out licenses from the license host through the SySAM
software.
Note If you are using a networked software asset management system, you
must install the software on the license host before installing it on secondary
servers.
36
CHAPTER 2
Sybase Software Asset Management
As part of a failover plan or a load-balancing system,
you can have multiple servers running on the same Adaptive Server
configuration, using a redundant license across all servers. The redundant
server system can be connected by a local-area network (LAN) or by a widearea network (WAN). A redundant server system is an excellent load-balancing
mechanism for physically distant servers. The redundant license allows you to
specify local servers as the first in the queue, and make remote servers
available as backup.
Redundant servers
The SySAM application attempts to check out a license from a license-file list,
starting with the first server. If that server fails for any reason, the second server
in the list is contacted, and so on.
The redundant server system also provides failover protection. If one server in
the list goes down for any reason, the second server responds to the license
request. If that server fails too, the next server in the list is contacted, and so on.
SySAM in the network environment
Before you begin installing additional Adaptive Servers in a network system,
the license manager must be installed and running on the license host. To install
Adaptive Server on secondary servers, you need to know:
•
The host name of the license host.
•
The port number on the license host where the asset manager listens for
connections (the default is 29722).
Redundant servers
As part of a failover plan or a load-balancing system, you may have multiple
servers running the same Adaptive Server configuration, using redundant
licenses across all servers. The redundant servers can be connected by LAN or
by WAN.
To configure redundant servers:
1
Follow the instructions in this guide to install Adaptive Server on each of
the servers in the redundant system.
2
As you install the software, make a note of the machine names and the
dedicated port numbers that SySAM uses on each machine. The default
port will be 29722.
37
SySAM administration
3
For each machine in the redundant system enter the license information
using the License Entry application. The certificate information is
provided in you Adaptive Server package on a printed Sybase Software
Asset Management Certificate.
4
After the installation is completed, and for each server in the redundant
system, set the LM_LICENSE_FILE environment variable to:
"port@machine:port@machine:port@machine"
For example, if you use port 29722 on each machine and the machine
names are Huey, Dewey, and Louie, the environment variable that points
to the license file would look like this:
LM_LICENSE_FILE =
29722@huey:29722@dewey:29722@louie
The first server in the license list is the first server queued by the licensing
software.
SySAM administration
If you are installing servers in a network environment, SySAM must be
installed and running on the license host before installing Adaptive Server on
additional servers. This section describes how to start SySAM manually or as
an automatic service, and other SySAM administration information.
Verifying the software is running
When the lmgrd daemon starts, it automatically starts up the SYBASE daemon.
To verify that the license management software is running on the system, use:
$SYBASE/SYBANE-1_0/bin/lmutil lmstat -c
Make sure that both lmgrd and SYBASE are running before you continue the
installation or start Adaptive Server. If the SySAM software is not running, see
the next section.

If the license manager is not running, you must start the license manager
manually. Use the startd.sh script in the /bin directory:
$SYBASE/$SYBASE_SYBASE/bin/startd.sh
Starting SySAM as an automatic service
To start the SySAM sofware automatically when the system is starting, see
“Starting Sybase Services Automatically” in this document.
Adding feature licenses
This section describes how to update the license file to enable Adaptive Server
features. To add features for which you have licenses follow the instructions
under “Entering license keys” above. Because you are adding licenses to an
existing configuration, you must notify the license daemons of the changes by
issuing a reread command.
Run the license management utility lmutil lmreread from the
$SYBASE/$SYSAM/bin directory:
$SYBASE/#SYBASE_SYSAM/bin/ lmutil lmreread
If you encounter problems with new licenses, check the lmgrd.log file in the
$SYBASE/SYBASE_SYSAM/log directory.
