Creating links in the /usr/lib directory on IBM AIX

To use SQL Anywhere with IBM AIX 6, you must either create links in the /usr/lib directory or ensure that the directory containing the LDAP libraries is included in the LIBPATH to ensure that the LDAP system libraries are found.


LDAP is only used with TCP/IP and only with network database servers.

Context and remarks

The Server Enumeration utility (dblocate) can use the LDAP server to find other such servers.

  1. Create links in the /usr/lib directory by running the following commands as the root user:

    cd /usr/lib
    ln -s /opt/IBM/ldap/V6.1/lib64/libibmldap.a libibmldap64.a
    ln -s /opt/IBM/ldap/V6.1/lib/libibmldap.a
  2. (Optional) Ensure that the directory with the LDAP libraries is in the LIBPATH.

    For 32-bit libraries:

    export LIBPATH=/opt/IBM/ldap/V6.1/lib:$LIBPATH

    For 64-bit libraries:

    export LIBPATH=/opt/IBM/ldap/V6.1/lib64:$LIBPATH


Links are created in /usr/lib.
