Dropping directory access servers (Sybase Central)

Administrators can use Sybase Central to delete directory access servers.


You must have the SERVER OPERATOR system privilege.

All proxy tables defined for the directory access server must be dropped before dropping the directory access server. The following query can be used to determine which proxy tables are defined for the directory access server server-name.

SELECT st.table_name, sp.remote_location, sp.existing_obj
    FROM sysproxytab sp
    JOIN sysserver ss ON ss.srvid = sp.srvid
    JOIN systab st ON sp.table_object_id = st.object_id
    WHERE ss.srvname = 'server-name';

Context and remarks

You cannot alter an existing directory access server: you must drop the existing directory access server using a DROP SERVER statement, and then create a new one.

 Drop a directory access server
  1. Use the SQL Anywhere 16 plug-in to connect to the host database.

  2. In the left pane, double-click Directory Access Servers.

  3. Select the directory access server, and then click Edit » Delete.


The directory access server is deleted.
