Restoring old backup of Sybase
Posted on 2004-09-13
I have a client that is using a Sybase 5.0 server and gave me a backup of the server. (myBackup.db). Unfortunately, the consultant who wrote the application/ designed the db / installed the db many many moons ago (circa 1994) didn't leave them copies of the install disks, etc (or they were just plain lost). So I am trying to get this db up and running on Sybase ASE 12.5.2. I have never worked with sybase, so I am not even sure if it is possible to restore a database from ver 5 to ver 12. If anyone has any experience with this, or knows about the possibility I would appreciate it.
