Hi, I'm mirroring my SQL Anywhere database using the "old" way of...-xp partner=(ENG=mtrs16b....etc.

In that case how do i set mtrs16b as "primary"?? In the new instructions, i see how to do it using the SQL statements, but how do i do it using the cmd commands? Thanks so much. Aron

You need to specify preferred=yes on the -xp command line option on the server which is the preferred primary server. i.e.

-xp partner=(ENG=mtrs16b;preferred=yes...

For information on how the deprecated -xp partner syntax worked, you will need to look at the SQL Anywhere 11 documentation:
