For each Sybase agent an interfaces file local to the FglAM is needed and needs to be maintained.
Is it possible to by-pass the Sybase interfaces file to avoid the maintenance work?
Is it not possible to by-pass the interfaces file, but it is possible to use one centralized file so that only one file needs to be maintained.
On UNIX systems the agent looks for the "interfaces" file located under the directory specified by the "Sybase Home" ASP (agent status properties).
On Windows systems the agent looks for "ini\sql.ini" file located on the path specified by the "Sybase Home" ASP (agent status property)
Windows: The shared drive is "S:" Now create on that drive two directories "SYBASE\ini" and put an interface file named sql.ini under the "ini" directory. In the agent properties specify "Sybase Home" as "S:\SYBASE".
Unix: The mounted drive is /apps. Create a directory "SYBASE" and put the interfaces file in that directory. In the agent properties specify "Sybase Home" as "/apps/SYBASE".
It is also possible to put the file on another server which is accessible from the FglAM server. In that case the server name must be entered in the "Sybase Home" property, for example: "servername:/apps/SYBASE".
