Dear all,

the first time install the replication server and it seems that when it launch, it will install SAP control center 3.x, but the ASE 15.7 server installed the Sybase control center.

sod SAP control center from replication server = Sybase control center from ASE 15.7?

I don't want the SAP control center overwrite the Sybase control center.

When they're from the same version family (RS 15.7 and ASE 15.7) it's fine.

They are both 15.7 but replication server is 15.7.1 SP200 , I am not sure if it is the same or not!


ASE 15.7 is  
'Adaptive Server Enterprise/15.7/EBF 21339 SMP SP101 /P/X64/Windows Server/ase157sp101/3439/64-bit/OPT/Thu Jun 06 12:11:05 2013'

It's only the major version numbers that are crucial here.

The absolute way to make sure is to install in different directories, but this is difficult under Windows as you'd want each to have its own environment variables set correctly.

But for 15.7.x and 15.7.x it shouldn't matter at all. It used to be a problem in versions before 15.0 but it's fine here.

You can control exactly what components each installer installs.

Installing SCC twice won't break anything, it will be like reinstalling.

"You can control exactly what components each installer installs."

What surprises me is, it seems I am launching another product installation, it seems not replication server but SAP CC, is it normal ?

Yep, because that is also a product that can be installed in its own right - you might want only that on a client machine, for instance, so I guess it has its own installer which the main one is launching. (Guessing.)

Sybase Control Center is a console for administering Sybase servers of any time. A single SCC can be talking to both ASEs, RepServers and IQ servers.

What I'm saying is that the SCC that comes with RS 15.7 is exactly the same SCC that comes with ASE 15.7. On its own it does nothing, it has to be pointed at the servers you want to monitor and manage.

So since they are the same SCC, installing the SCC from ASE and then installing the SCC from RepServer is harmless - you are basically just reinstalling it.

what I care about is, it seems just force me to install again and I don't have a choice.
