Additional notes about cloud servers

There are several considerations to make when configuring cloud servers.

  • Cloud server software version   A cloud can support multiple versions of cloud server and database software. Download different versions of cloud server software and install them on a host

  • Cloud server ports   When a cloud server is created, by default it is assigned a port number from the port range associated with the host it runs on.

  • Cloud server roles in mirroring and read-only scale-out systems   A cloud server can have multiple roles in various mirroring systems. For example, a cloud server can act as an arbiter for one tenant, a mirror for another tenant, and a primary for yet another tenant.

  • SQL Anywhere utilities that are not supported by the cloud   Most SQL Anywhere utilities can be run against databases on cloud servers. However, you cannot run the following SQL Anywhere utilities on databases running on cloud servers:

    • Stop Server utility (dbstop)
    • Start Server in Background utility (dbspawn)

  • SQL Anywhere Server Messages icon   The SQL Anywhere Server Messages icon that usually appears in your system tray does not appear for the cloud servers because cloud servers run as services. However, you can view the cloud servers as processes in your operating system, and you can view cloud server messages in Sybase Central.

  • Cloud server starting and stopping   Cloud servers can only be started or stopped by using the Cloud Console or by running the StartServer or StopServer tasks from the Cloud Command utility (dbcloudcmd).
