Please be aware that the SAP SQL Anywhere Forum will be shut down on August 29th, 2024 when all it's content will be migrated to the SAP Community.

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
