Can these new-school statements (or ones like it)

ALTER MIRROR SERVER xxx12A AS PARTNER log_file = 'C:\xxx\xxx12A.mlog';

ALTER MIRROR SERVER xxx12B AS PARTNER log_file = 'C:\xxx\xxx12B.mlog';

be used to add HA debugging to dbsrv12 engines that were set up with these options?

(or is there some way to add *.mlog files to a 24x7 old-school setup?)

-n xxx12A 
-o "C:\xxx\xxx12ALog.txt" 
-su nfr
-x tcpip(port=55500;dobroadcast=no) 
-xf "C:\xxx\xxx12AState.txt" 
-gl All
-ti 0
-sn xxxPri 
-sm xxxSec
-xp partner=(eng=xxx12B;links=tcpip(host=localhost;port=55599;timeout=2));mode=sync;autofailover=YES;auth=xxx;arbiter=(eng=xxx12;links=tcpip(host=localhost;port=55501;timeout=2))

-n xxx12B 
-o "C:\xxx\xxx12BLog.txt"
-su nfr
-x tcpip(port=55599;dobroadcast=no) 
-xf "C:\xxx\xxx12BState.txt"
-gl All
-ti 0
-sn xxxPri 
-sm xxxSec
-xp partner=(eng=xxx12A;links=tcpip(host=localhost;port=55500;timeout=2));mode=sync;autofailover=YES;auth=xxx;arbiter=(eng=xxx12;links=tcpip(host=localhost;port=55501;timeout=2))

If you are using the SQL Anywhere 11 compatible -xp, then you can use the logfile=C:\xxx\xxx12A.mlog parameter. For example:

-xp partner=(eng=xxx12B;links=tcpip(host=localhost;port=55599;timeout=2));mode=sync;autofailover=YES;auth=xxx;logfile=C:\xxx\xxx12A.mlog;arbiter=(eng=xxx12;links=tcpip(host=localhost;port=55501;timeout=2))

Mixing -xp and CREATE/ALTER MIRROR server is NOT recommended and can lead to unexpected results.

Kind regards, Ian
