I'm curious when the -k switch was removed from SQL Anywhere. We use it currently in our production environment running under ASA6.

I'm setting up a new scheduled task on our development machine to run dbremote. When I was checking the switches in the old batch file against the new documentation for SQLA12, I noticed that the -k switch was no longer avilable, and it looks like it's been replaced by the -qc switch.

I looked through the documention but could not find where that feature was deprecated.

Any info on this would be greatly apprecited.

The -k switch was deprecated and replaced with -qc for the 10.0.0 release. It is listed in the 10.0.0 What's New section on DCX.

Thanks Graeme. That's what I needed to see. Trying to document all these changes for our replication environment.
