Hi, I'm mirroring my SQL Anywhere database using the "old" way of...-xp partner=(ENG=mtrs16b....etc.

In that case how do i set the alternate server name? In the new instructions, i see how to do it using the SQL statements, but how do i do it using the cmd commands? Thanks so much. Aron

It is recommended that you use the CREATE MIRROR SERVER statements instead of using the deprecated -xp partner... support.

Since the documentation is written to use CREATE MIRROR SERVER statements and not the deprecated way, if you need to use the deprecated support, you will need to look at the version 11 documentation for how to use the deprecated method. See
