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'm curious when the -k switch was removed from SQL Anywhere. We use it currently in our production environment running under ASA6.

I'm setting up a new scheduled task on our development machine to run dbremote. When I was checking the switches in the old batch file against the new documentation for SQLA12, I noticed that the -k switch was no longer avilable, and it looks like it's been replaced by the -qc switch.

I looked through the documention but could not find where that feature was deprecated.

Any info on this would be greatly apprecited.

The -k switch was deprecated and replaced with -qc for the 10.0.0 release. It is listed in the 10.0.0 What's New section on DCX.

Thanks Graeme. That's what I needed to see. Trying to document all these changes for our replication environment.
