In Sybase, I can run this query - select * from sysservers

and get a list of servernames which host my database(s). So how do I find out which databases are associated with my list of servers?

I don't know of any way to get a list of databases from a remote server but you can get the list of databases on the current server by doing "select name from sysdatabases" (if you want only non-system databases, it looks like you could add "where status2 > 0").

If its me doing this then it would be a nested loop in a shell script (ie ksh).  You will need a list of your server names in a list (flat file or array).  Next you will do a select (as above) to get a list of databases [ie select * from sysdatabases where name not in ('master', 'model', 'sybsystemprocs','sybsystemdb','sybsecurity','dbccdb')
and name not like ('tempdb%') ]  
Important Note: you can certainly use the "status2 > 0" like approach above however you need to ensure 1) you get the results you expect.   For example, I often use multiple tempdbs and my tempdb2 has a status2 of 1.  Ultimately context is the key.  Are you looking for users dbs? or total disk consumption?  What is the business/management/technical requirement here?  2) you need to assume that these status bits don't get "magically" updated by SAP.  

Again, just my thoughts not even sure this thread is still going
