Hi

Three questions on Sybase IQ :

1. Is there anyway to recover lost DBA password?
2. Does Sybase IQ support OS authentication?
3. As per Sybase , Volume management software is not recommended for Sybase IQ devices. What is the reason?

Can anyone help ?

thanks

1. Opinion is divided. Sybase Tech Support have told some people DBA passwords cannot be recovered for IQ or ASA, and told others that it can.

2. Yes, via Kerberos. You need the separately licensed "Sybase IQ Advanced Security Option" for this. This might not be available in versions below a certain version of IQ.

3. I'm not aware of any issues. Have you been told to avoid them? Raw partitions pretty much beat anything else for performance, but some volume management software is almost as good - and better than standard file systems.

Hm, how odd. I can't find anything to explain that in the Sybase manuals or in any of the IQ presentations at the last few years of Techwave conferences. Ask your instructor?
