My configuration: Sybase Adaptive Server Anywhere 7, version 184.108.40.20672 Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard Edition 64 bit Physical memory : 2GB
My working directory has the following 4 files: dbtl50t.dll isql.exe asa_bkup.bat asa_bkup.sql
BACKUP DATABASE DIRECTORY 'D:\bkup_data\001'
I double-clicked asa_bkup.bat but it said : "unable to start database engine." I clicked OK and it displayed another windows to me:
Interactive SQL Login
I enteried arbitrary values to Connection Name and Startline but it still didn't work.
Could you tell are there any wrong in the asa_bkup.bat file?
Do you run this batch on the W2K8 Server or on a different box? - In the latter case, you may need to add a further connection parameter to enable network connections, namely "LINKS=TCPIP" or "CommLinks=TCPIP", such as the modified line from you batch
From the v8 docs:
So without that parameter, ISQL can only connect to a local database engine on the same box.
