BH Hi, i'm setting up SQL Anywhere database mirroring. I have two Windows Server 2008 R2 machines (will be used as srv1 and srv2) and a Windows Server 2003 Machine (will be used as arbiter). When i install Sybase SQL anywhere 16 on the Windows Server 2003 machine, it doesn't install the dbsrv16.exe file. Also it doesn't give me 64bit component options during the installation. What am i doing wrong? Thanks so much for your help. Aron

Which bitness is the Windows 2003 system - 32-bit or 64-bit? Which software is being installed after you run the install, and which installation options are you offered during the setup?

If needed, you can run a 32-bit arbiter on the Windows 2003 system and 64-bit servers on the partner servers.

When you install SQL Anywhere on the Windows Server 2003 machine, are you providing the full server license key, a network seat key, or a high availability add-on key?

Installing with the network seat key or high availability add-on key will not install the dbrv16 executable necessary to run the arbiter.

This (PDF) document describes the conditions under which you may install "an additional SQL Anywhere server on another Machine to act as the arbiter server".

BH, Actually that was the exact problem. I was putting in the wrong license key. Thanks so much for your help guys. Aron
