Starting the SQL Anywhere Console utility

 ♦  To start the SQL Anywhere Console utility (command line)
  • Run the following command:

    dbconsole

    If you do not include the -c option, which specifies the connection parameters for the database, or if you supply insufficient connection parameters, the Connect window appears, where you can enter connection information for the database.

    For information about the supported options, see SQL Anywhere Console utility (dbconsole).

    The following command starts the SQL Anywhere Console utility and connects to the sample database:

    dbconsole -c "UID=DBA;PWD=sql;DSN=SQL Anywhere 12 Demo"

The following steps can be used if you are using a version of Linux that supports the Linux desktop icons and if you chose to install them when you installed SQL Anywhere.

  1. From the Applications menu, choose SQL Anywhere 12 » DBConsole.

  2. Enter the connection information for your database in the Connect window.
