Standart installation of buisness objects.(Win2012)

My sql.ini file is:

[BI4]
master=TCP,localhost,2638
query=TCP,localhost,2638

connection string:

isql -U dba -P password -S BI4 -D BI4_CMS

And error:

Msg 911, Level 16, State 0:
SQL Anywhere Error -83: Specified database not found
CT-LIBRARY error:
        ct_connect(): protocol specific layer: external error: The attempt to connect to the server failed.

what's my mistake?

Try using the dbisql utility that ships with SQL Anywhere. For example:

"%SQLANY12%\bin64\dbisql.com" -c "ENG=B14;DBN=BI4_CMS;UID=dba;PWD=xxx;"

No... I have worked dbisql.exe.

I need isql. For integration with DataProtector

AFAIK, there's no isql utility to connect with SQL Anywhere.

I don't use BI but here's a howto setup SQL Anywhere 12.0 with BI 4.1:

You should be able to use the isql utility from ASE to connect to a SQL Anywhere 12 database... I've seen it done, and I've done it myself, but I just can't remember how :)

I believe it has to do with using Open Client (ct_connect etcetera), and there is a whole chapter in the Help: Using SQL Anywhere as an Open Server

I am guessing (hoping) it is a simple problem with the -S -D parameters, but maybe it is deeper; e.g., maybe dbsrv12.exe wasn't started with -x tcpip since Open Client requires TCPIP.

Update: I got this message when the port number was missing:

C:\projects\$templates\$SA_templates\run\isql_ASE>"C:\Sybase\OCS-15_0\bin\isql.e
xe" -U dba -P sql -S ddd12 -D ddd12
CT-LIBRARY error:
        ct_connect(): directory service layer: internal directory control layer
error: Requested server name not found.

With the port number (49158 in the case of my running copy of dbsrv12.exe), I got a different message, indicating that the connection process actually found the server:

C:\projects\$templates\$SA_templates\run\isql_ASE>"C:\Sybase\OCS-15_0\bin\isql.e
xe" -U dba -P sql -S ddd12:49158 -D ddd12
CT-LIBRARY error:
        ct_connect(): network packet layer: internal net library error: Protocol
 driver call to parse connection information failed

C:\projects\$templates\$SA_templates\run\isql_ASE>PAUSE
Press any key to continue . . .

I then fiddled around with dsedit, but the dsedit ping gave the same parse error, plus "information has invalid syntax".

Maybe you will have better luck.

The following test worked OK when BI4_CMS was used as the -S server name for the ASE isql connection, instead of BI4, when using SQL Anywhere 16.

C:\Sybase\ini\sql.ini

[BI4_CMS]
master=TCP,localhost,2638
query=TCP,localhost,2638

Start dbsrv16 and run ASE isql

"%SQLANY16%\bin64\dbspawn.exe"^
  -f "%SQLANY16%\bin64\dbsrv16.exe"^
  -n BI4^
  -o dbsrv16_log_BI4_CMS_Audit.txt^
  -x tcpip(PORT=2638)^
  BI4_CMS.db BI4_Audit.db

"C:\Sybase\OCS-15_0\bin\isql.exe" -U dba -P sql -S BI4_CMS -D BI4_CMS

Test worked OK...

C:\projects\$templates\$SA_templates\run\isql_ASE>"C:\Sybase\OCS-15_0\bin\isql.e
xe" -U dba -P sql -S BI4_CMS -D BI4_CMS

Please check the SQL Anywhere server to make sure the running server name is BI4 and the running database name is BI4_CMS.

The following test worked OK for me:

Using ASE isql.exe with SQL Anywhere via Open Connect / Open Server

Start SQL Anywhere 12 database with -x tcpip...

"%SQLANY12%\bin64\dbspawn.exe"^
  -f "%SQLANY12%\bin64\dbsrv12.exe"^
  -n BI4^
  -o dbsrv12_log_BI4_CMS.txt^
  -x tcpip^
  BI4_CMS.db

Add section to C:\Sybase\ini\sql.ini...

[BI4]
master=TCP,localhost,2638
query=TCP,localhost,2638

Run ASE isql utility...

"C:\Sybase\OCS-15_0\bin\isql.exe" -U dba -P sql -S BI4 -D BI4_CMS

Result...

Common mistakes

Spelling mistake in the server and/or database name, when starting the server, or connecting from isql, or in the sql.ini file; e.g., B14 instead of BI4.

Coding error; e.g., colon instead of comma ahead of the port number in the sql.ini file.

Thanx you! But this is my startup string:

D:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\sqlanywhere\bin64\dbsrv16.exe -n BI4 -x tcpip(PORT=2638;DoBroadcast=NO;BroadcastListener=NO) "D:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\sqlanywhere\database\BI4_CMS.db" "D:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\sqlanywhere\database\BI4_Audit.db"

I tried other variants... and same errror.

I'd suggest that you remove the "DoBroadcast=NO;BroadcastListener=NO" from your -x tcpip option since this will cause the connection failure if the connection string (from isql) does not contain the "LINKS=TCPIP(BROADCAST=NO)" option and I suspect it does not do this!)

(15 Aug, 11:54) Mark Culp

I tried -n BI4 -x tcpip(PORT=2638;DoBroadcast=YES;BroadcastListener=YES) "D:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\sqlanywhere\database\BI4_CMS.db" "D:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\sqlanywhere\database\BI4_Audit.db"

-n BI4 -x tcpip "D:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\sqlanywhere\database\BI4_CMS.db" "D:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\sqlanywhere\database\BI4_Audit.db"

-n BI4 -x tcpip(PORT=2638) "D:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\sqlanywhere\database\BI4_CMS.db" "D:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\sqlanywhere\database\BI4_Audit.db"

And same error.

Show us the entire command line for starting the server.

Add the following option to the command line, and post the entire file showing the server startup:

-o c:\temp\server_diagnostic.txt
