> Is it possible to replicate sybase databases without the sybase replication server?

Yes, one can do replication in a number of ways.  For instance, one could use RPCs in
triggers on user tables.  For simple setups, some people use the SQL REMOTE package
from ASA.

> Is it possible to replicate sybase database to MS SQL Server 7.0?

I would think so.  Sybase Replication Server can be used to replicate from Oracle to Oracle,
so I can't imagine ASA or ASE to MS-SQL would be difficult.

I follow Bret's answer

As Bret mentioned, it can be used to Replicate TO/FROM MSSQLServer. All you need is to buy "Direct Connect gateway for MSSQLServer" product from Sybase.

Basically I am looking for a free software to replicate sybase database to ms sql server. Is anything available for that?
Also does Sybase ASE 11.9.2 for Linux include sybase replication server?
Thanx.

Don't know of anything that would be free.  Ever since Microsoft changed the TDS specification away from the Sybase standard,
a Direct Connect is needed to use replication or CIS to MS-SQL.

Replicaton Server is a seperate product - I'm not sure it is available on Linux.

I do not think that anything is available for free. There are couple of other products which can be used for this purpose (Transformation Server from DataMirror etc.). But these are expensive than Sybase RepServer.

But If you have resources in-house, you can do the following:

1) Perform the replication (not asynchronus) via Remote Procedure calls etc. or using Component Integration Services (CIS) by defining the remote tables as Local tables to the Sybase server from where the changes are initiating. Once you define the remote tables locally, you can use those tables as local tables while programming Stored Procedures, Triggers etc.

2) OR, using Open Server product of Sybase, you can build a Server for this purpose. But, this would more expensive than getting it from Sybase since it is a lot of work.

I would recommend to do this via RPCs between the servers or using Component Integration Services (CIS).
