Having installed the update to SQL Anywhere, I notice a difference in unloading a database. Up to version, I was able to execute the dbunload statement in the Summary page of the Unload Database Wizard directly by pressing the Finish Button. After the update, I get the attached error.

The dbunload statement looks like: dbunload -v -c "UID= testdatabase;PWD=***;Server=skyserver;DBN= Testdatabase;ASTART=No;host=" -an "/Users/admin/Desktop/Testdatabase.db" -ap 4096 -ea None -kdi 0 -ii -up

If I execute the very same statement in the terminal AND put at PWD= the password in clear instead of the ***, it works. As I think we have not changed the server environment (may be except an update of Java), I am wondering if there is a change in SQL Central?

  • OS X 10.11 El Capitan
  • Java 1.8.0_101

Best regards, Robert

The generation of the unprocessed.sql file hasn't changed AFAIK. unprocessed.sql will go into the 'current directory'. Perhaps the current directory for your invocation of SQL Central is a location where you do not have write permission?

Hi John I write the database as before the update to the admin's Desktop folder. As I am logged in as admin, I have write access to this folder. I am a little helpless what it could be.

Try changing the current directory of the SQL Central process. To do so, edit the icon that you use to invoke it. Right-click on the icon, choose 'Properties' then put a directory into the "Start in:" field.

Do you mean the icon of SQL Central?

Yes. And you must restart SQL Central after editing the icon.

I am on OS X and with Get Info I don't have a field like Start in:. I also checked Package Contents but can't find something like you mention. Could you give a hint where to find this field in El Capitan, please?
