Installation 12.5.2 with 12.5.3 EBF on solaris
Posted on 2006-11-18
I have read the installation guide from the Sybase website. Please do not send those links as answers to this question. I am installing 12.5.2 on Solaris and then upgrading to 12.5.3 EBF. It has been 8 years since my last installation and I would just like to get better prepared for this process. I am looking for explicit instructions on completing this task. I have downloaded the tar files from Sybase.com. These files will be untarred by an SA. Then what? The install guides always reference the cd-rom etc etc. I do not have a cd-rom. I have downloaded the tar file from Sybase. I have given this tar file to the SAs. Once the tar is untarred, is there a file that I am supposed to run. Is this the "setup" file? If so, upon completion of running "setup", do I just run the server build file, srvbuild. Of course, this would be after I have configured the display variable for my session as this looks like a GUI/xwindows scripts. One addition point of importance, there are several versions of Sybase currently installed on the host. Other than the obvious, memory and engines (resources in general), is there anything else that I need to be concerned about during the installation process.
Websites, pdfs, word docs, or anything else with specific details regarding the installation process as well as the upgrade process would be appreciated. If this was a test machine or a home machine, I would just muck with it. Unfortunately, it is not. Thanks in advance
