Please be aware that the content in SAP SQL Anywhere Forum will be migrated to the SAP Community in June and this forum will be retired.

Our Linux x64 server is running the build of SQL Anywhere. Our client applications (Windows) are running fine most of the time, but randomly they can't connect to the server with the error message "Database Server Not Found". This happens on different client computers. After a minute or so, the connection can be established again with no problems anymore.

We had a look at the latest EBF for Linux ( but it doesn't list a fix for this problem.

Previous versions of SQL Anywhere didn't show this behavior. We are using SA for more than 15 years already (since version 5).

So what can it be .... ?

I would try to run the clients with the LOG=C:\MyLog.txt connection parameter to log any messages during the connection attempts.

I hadn't thought of that. We will try that immediately, and I will report the outcome to this forum. Thank you for your reply!
