The forum will experience an outage sometime between February 10 at 7:00pm EST and February 12 at 11:59 EST for installation of security updates. The actual time and duration of the outage are unknown but attempts will be made to minimize the downtime. We apologize for any inconvenience.

I was unable to get Cockpit to run with a minimal installation of the Bin32 folder without including dbcis17.dll, which is not indicated as required in the documentation. If this file is required, the documentation needs to be updated to indicate so.

For others: Here is the link to the documentation: http://dcx.sap.com/index.html#sqla170/en/html/816770f96ce21014af38eebd6120f116.html

It says: dbcis17.dll(6) 6 - Required only if using remote data access.

Probably the cockpit requires "remote data access", because it is Cockpit and should monitor many DBs. But this is just an assumption.

I second that assumption: As the cockpit is a SQL Anywhere database itself, it will require remote data access to access other databases...

I also agree with Robert that this ought to be stated explicitly in the docs.

Yes, the fact that it is documented as "Required only if using remote data access" did lead me to guess that it might need this file. However, it needs to be documented that it is also required for SQL Anywhere Cockpit, if this is the case.

You are all correct, the Cockpit does use remote data access to get information from the individual databases running on a server. I have added a comment to the Database Server Deployment page to reflect this.
