Hi there,

I'm trying to monitor my relay server instance with sql anywhere monitor. Unfortunately I'm not able to add the relay server farm as a ressource. The error coming up is a timeout due to an E/A read timeout error.

I installed my relay server following the tutorial based on the relay server files which are supposed to be used for a relay server installation communicating with an afaria installation.

Kind regards, Martin

Exactly which files did you deploy to the Web Server? I don't think the instructions for Afaria mention the rs_monitor.dll, which is critical for the SQL Anywhere Monitor.

FWIW, the mentioned tutorial "Deploying the Relay Server components to Microsoft IIS 7.0 or 7.5 on Windows Server 2008/Windows Server 2008 R2 " does mentioned this DLL - and it's apparently not for Afaria:)

I deployed the monitor_rs.dll form my SQl Anywhere Installation in addition to those from afaria. I assumed this could work!

Forgetting about the SQL Anywhere Monitor, can you use a browser and specify the location of the rs_monitor.dll and get a status page? For example :

Unfortunately calling the rs_monitor.dll via browser doesn't work. The server is simply not responding.

Can you browse to the rs_client.dll or rs_server.dll on the machine and get a status page?

Can you post the applicationHost.config file for you IIS server so we can see if things are configured properly?

What version and build of the Relay Server binaries are you using?

can't upload any file without 100 redemption points

I can't get any status page from one of those dlls.

I set up the relay server using those files provided by SQL Anywhere 12 installation and everything went well. I could monitor the relay server.

Version are different: RS files from SQL Anywhere 12 installation are in Version RS files from Afaria installation are in Version

Assuming there is a version conflict, where can I get the admin and monitoring dll files in the newer version?

Let's get you binaries that all match up before we go any further.

You can download the v1201.3726 SQL Anywhere EBF by browsing to

  1. Select "SQL Anywhere" in the product section
  2. Locate "SQL Anywhere - Express Bug Fix, Update of 12.0.1 to build 3726" in the "Platform: Windows x86/Windows x64" section
  3. Make some promises to our lawyers
  4. Download away

Once you install the v1201.3726 EBF on top of an existing v1201 install, the %SQLANY12%\RelayServer\IIS directory should contain all the Relay Server binaries you are looking for.

Thanks! That one was easy. I copied the updated files and added entries to the IIS configuration. Monitoring works now.
