Before beginning the installation, review this section to ensure required privileges are set and system requirements are met.
You must have the System Administrator (sa) user ID and password for the Adaptive Server you want to diagnose, or have a DBA setup a user ID by running the setup utility before you can use Spotlight to diagnose the Adaptive Server. All metrics are available to sa users. Non sa users can be set up to monitor a SAP Adaptive Server with a non sa setup utility shipped with the Spotlight® on SAP ASE. Nearly all metrics and features are available to non sa users.
If an Adaptive Server 15 or later does not have the monitoring tables installed script, Spotlight cannot use the MDA API. Spotlight notifies you of this condition and breaks the connection to the Adaptive Server. You can install these table using the INSTALLMONTABLES script that is shipped with Adaptive Server.
