I installed SQL Anywhere years ago and forgot what type of license I am using, so how can I determine how my server or client is licensed. What type of license am I using?

You can use the DBLIC tool to check that, such as (here for the network server dbrsv12):

"%SQLANY12%\bin64\dblic" "%SQLANY12%\bin64\dbsrv12.lic"

Furthermore, there a a few server-level properties you can query in DBISQL, such as

select property('LicenseType'), property('LicenseCount')
permanent link

Thank you for the answer, however, to be more precise I am using the 60 days trial of SQL Anywhere, the problem is on a customer of mine. Thus, after typing "%SQLANY12%\bin64\dblic" "%SQLANY12%\bin64\dbsrv12.lic" , I am getting an error on the trial, should I try this on customer's computer? or should i do something else?

Note, DBLIC is a program, so you have to execute that command line in a CMD shell window, not as a SQL statement (in contrast to the "select property..." sample, which is a SQL statement)...

You need to run that for the database engine you want to check, I can't tell whether that is on your or your customer's box.

Thank you very much for the support, it worked, and if anything goes wrong later on, I will update the post.
