I am new to SQL Anywhere
In the MS SQL world, I would install SSMS on my management workstation, then administer remote MS SQL servers remotely from there. I would purchase licenses for the actual servers, but not the management workstations.
I would like to use the management tools dbisql.com and dbisql.exe from a management workstation in a similar manner. Are the any licensing ramifications associated with this or can I install management tools on as many workstations as I want? Also, is there a separate download for just the management tools? If so, can someone please provide a link? If not, is there a method to run the regular installer but only install the management tools?
Licensing: There are licensing ramifications. You will need to determine how your server has been licensed. Depending on the version of SQL Anywhere you have, there may have been 2 different licensing models for SQL Anywhere servers (CPU based and seat based). In general, if your server is seat based, you will have to ensure that each seat has a client license.
Install: There is no separate install, you simply run the install, and only pick the tools to install.
