I am supporting a legacy system running under ASA, Sybase central version

I would like to view and manage the database service in Sybase Central. But the "Services" folder does not show, only the "Utilities" folder.

The Help shows what I am expecting to see, but the progarm does not. And I can't see or remember any settings that affect that.

Is there a trick I am missing?

Thanks, Bill

Any chance to upgrade to a somewhat "newer" 8.0.3 EBF?

I suspect that the problem is related to this fix

================(Build #4259  - Engineering Case #320277)================

When installed on Windows 2003, the Services folder in the ASA and MobiLink 
plug-ins for Sybase Central would not be available. This has been fixed.

Note that if you are simply starting or stopping a service, that this can also be done from the "Services" widget inside of the "Administrative Tools" area of the Control Panel...

Or simply "NET START ... " and "NET STOP ... " in a command shell...

I wanted to view the parameters of the service.

But... AMAZINGLY... I see the 8.0.3 patch and a later 8.0.3 EBF are still on the web site, so I will apply those. I know that might be a wee bit past "supported releases", thanks iAnywhere!

If that doesn't work, there is a fallback of hacking into the registry, the parameters are on a subkey of the service definition.

That is a great piece of info to have, for now and/or other uses. Thanks Erik.

FWIW, SQL Anywhere services are listed in the registry in the services subtree (i.e. HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services), usually with a "SQLANYs_" prefix.

The parameters are listed in the default Parameters subkey.
