Run the Message Agent (dbremote) on Mac OS X

SQL Anywhere includes an application called SyncConsole that can be used to start the Message Agent (dbremote) on Mac OS X. You can also start the Message Agent on Mac OS X using the dbremote utility.

To start SyncConsole
  1. In the Finder, go to /Applications/SQLAnywhere11.

  2. Double-click SyncConsole.

  3. Choose File » New » SQL Remote.

    A client options window appears.

  4. Specify the connection information for the Message Agent (dbremote).

    For example, the following connection parameter uses an ODBC data source for the SQL Anywhere sample database:

    DSN="SQL Anywhere 11 Demo"

    The user name must have either REMOTE DBA authority or DBA authority. The message length, as defined by the -l option, must be the same on all databases in the system. See Message Agent (dbremote) requirements.

    For a complete list of dbremote options you can specify in the Options field, see Message Agent (dbremote).
