BH Hi, in the old windows 2003 server, whenever the SQL ANYWHERE Server is started, the window in the task-bar appeared. It showed like a log of the connections and status (ex. "Now accepting requests", etc.) However, in the Windows 2008 Server, i don't see that log window in the tray. Is there a way to pull it up manually? Thanks Aron
You must be running your server as a service.
When the database server (or any other process) is running as a service the process is no longer allowed to interact with the desktop - This is a change that Microsoft has made as of Windows7/Server 2008.
So unfortunately there is no method to get the old behaviour when running on Windows 2008 Server.

At our site, I changed the startup params for the database to write a log file of the console messages, and use baretail to watch them go by. It seems to work pretty well.
-o C:\Logs\MyDBServer.TXT -os 2m
