Managing service groups

You can check and change which group a service belongs to in Sybase Central.


You must ensure that your service is a member of an appropriate group before you can configure your services to start in the correct order.

  1. In Sybase Central, use the SQL Anywhere 16 plug-in to connect to the database.

  2. In the left pane, click SQL Anywhere 16.

  3. In the right pane, click the Services tab.

  4. Right-click the service and click Properties.

  5. Click the Dependencies tab. The top text box displays the name of the group the service belongs to.

    By default, each service belongs to a group, as listed in the following table.

    Service Default group
    Network server SQLANYServer
    Personal server SQLANYEngine
    MobiLink synchronization client SQLANYMLSync
    SQL Remote Message Agent SQLANYRemote
    MobiLink server SQLANYMobiLink
    SQL Anywhere Broadcast Repeater utility SQLANYNS
    MobiLink Listener SQLANYLSN
    SQL Anywhere Volume Shadow Copy Service SQLANYVSS
    MobiLink Relay Server SQLANYRSHOST
    MobiLink Relay Server Outbound Enabler SQLANYRSOE
    MobiLink Agent SQLANYMLAGENT
  6. Click Change to display a list of available groups on your system.

  7. Select one of the groups, or type a name for a new group.

  8. Click OK to assign the service to that group.


The group services are checked and changed.
