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.

I just inherited some legacy code that uses SQL Anywhere. The server name is truncated, whenever constructed, to 30 characters. This causes problems for some users. I want to find out if this is a SQLA limitation, but haven't found a definitive answer in last day of searching.

The limit was 40 bytes except for shared memory on unix, which was 31 bytes. This was bumped to 250 bytes in version 10.

If my hazey memory recalls correctly versions prior to 10 restricted the length of the servername parameter. I think it was 40 bytes
