I'm installing Sybase ASE 15 client on a new windows  box, and want to quickly copy my sql.ini entries from a client running Sybase 12.5.   I don't see the file in sybase/ini/ directory.

Is there a way to import the contents of the old sql.ini file or do I have to recreate all the entries by hand?  If so, where is that being written to?  I need to copy the new settings to more clients.

Thank you for your help.

I believe the directory structures have changed.

On your new machine, go to c:\ and search for sql.ini and see what turn up.  I think you will find they simply moved where it is located.

No help.  The file is not anywhere on C: (that's my only partition).   Here is the sybase directory:

c:\sybase\ini\sql.ini on my windoze installation

You can also put it somewhere else (not a good idea) and set your path so that it is found.

Try firing up the "dsedit" application, create an entry (doesn't matter what) and see if it does not create the file for you in the expected location.

The chances are pretty good you can simply copy the old file to the new system once you figure out what the expected location is.

Do the dsedit trick and then copy the 12.5 file over the top of the v15 one you just created.  It should work fine.  The only difference might be that NLWNSCK may have been deprecated in favor of TCP but that is an easy fix.

Bill

There is no Dsedit utility with ASE 15 client for windows.  I did the full install option.

What I have instead is Data Source Administrator.  It works in a different way.  It lists both OLE DB connections (which it allows you to create) and ODBC connections, which I created on Control Panel.

The Data Source Administrator does not write to sql.ini.
