I have a few systems in the environment that runs more than one instance of the Sybase, I couldn't find a way of setting SC configs (server and agent) without running multiple agents (on separate ports) on single host. Is there a way to set up both server profile/config and agent so single agent per host can manipulate with multiple Sybase instance (different SYBASE environments )
single host - bd4db01, there are 2 instances - BD4 and BV4. BD4 -- SYBASE=/sybase/BD4
BV4 -- SYBASE=/sybase/BV4
.. sort of always had the question why we need to specify this variable in both agent.conf and SC server's Sybase plug-in configuration? not to mention before starting agent on the host this environment variable already has to be set in the shell from which agent is started.
sounds promissing.. just have to follow up questions.
the conf files (BV4.conf and BD4.conf) would need to be created on agent (would guess there) or server side? it's name is a match for UNIX user name or Sybase intance? (in my environment these are 2 different things -- BD4 owned by sybbd4 and BV4 by sybbv4 but the SYBASE_USER is in fact doesn't match UNIX user account )
Re: SC 4.0p1 Sybase plug-in with multiple Sybase DB instances
if I do remove in agent.conf filer SYBASE* environment variables and start agent on host from root without setting up SYBASE* environment variable the 'backup" fails with error stating it couldn't find sybase home..
(188.8.131.52)] SCF-00037: Application quiesce for plugin [sybase] failed with error [
The context allocation routine failed when it tried to load localization files!!
One or more following problems may caused the failure
Cannot access the sybase home directory, please check environment variable SYBASE or ~sybase] and exit code , Exiting!
the SYBASE environment variable is set in to profile/config file on SC server ..
