ASE 12.5.1 Developers Edition for Linux - 10-09-2003 , 11:51 AM
I've been using the Developers Edition of Sybase ASE 12.5 for Linux
which is available for free download from the sybase website. This is
actually version 22.214.171.124 according to "select @@version"
I've run into the Large File Size problem. I need to create a master
device that is 3.4GB in size, but ASE 126.96.36.199 will only create
devices up to 2 GB in size.
I was lead to believe that upgrading to 188.8.131.52 would fix the Large
File Size problem so I've used EBF 11450 to upgrade ASE to 184.108.40.206
but srvbuild still refuses to build a device that is bigger than 2 GB.
After upgrading, I checked the version number with select @@version:
Adaptive Server Enterprise/220.127.116.11/EBF 11450 ESD#4/P/Linux
Intel/Linux 2.4.18-18.7.xsmp i686/rel12503/1940/32-bit/OPT/Sun Sep 21
I've used srvbuild to sucessfully build a A 2 GB device, but if I
specify a 2.5GB device then the build fails. This is the outrput in
the srvbuild dialog:
Writing entry into directory services... Directory services entry
Building master device... Master device complete.
Writing RUN_testdevice file...
RUN_testdevice file complete.
Starting server... Task failed
Unable to boot Adaptive Server 'testdevice' because the master device
(/u4/sybase/testdevice/master.dat) does not exist.
Server 'testdevice' was not created.(Starting Server...Task Failed)
I can't see anything in the error log file that says why it failed. I
presume that it was due to not being able to write master.dat larger
Will upgrading to ASE 12.5.1 fix this Large File Size Problem? It
looks as if the developers edition of 12.5.1 is available to buy from
the Sybase eshop, but its listed as ASE 12.5 and its not clear which
minor version will actually be shipped. I've asked sybase to clarify
this but they've not yet got back to me.
Any help will be much appreciated
