SAP Sybase SQL Anywhere 16.0 » SQL Anywhere 16 - Changes and Upgrading » What's new in version 12.0.0


Product-wide behavior changes

Following is a list of product-wide behavior changes introduced in version 12.0.0. For information about supported platforms and versions, see [external link]

  • SQL Anywhere Replication Agent for Sybase Replication Server unsupported   The SQL Anywhere Replication Agent for Sybase Replication Server is not supported in version 12. You must use an alternative replication or synchronization technology such as MobiLink or SQL Remote. See MobiLink technology and SQL Remote systems.

    The following changes have been made to the software as a result of this change:

    • a_change_log DBTools structure   The ignore_ltm_trunc member is no longer supported.

    • LTMGeneration database property   This property is reserved for system use.

    • LTMTrunc database property   This property is reserved for system use.

    • Log Transfer Manager utility (dbltm)   This utility has been removed.

    • Log Translation utility (dbtran)   The -is option no longer supports the value RepServer.

      The -rsu option has been removed.

    • Service utility (dbsvc)   You can no longer create services for Replication Agent. The SQLANYLTM service group is no longer supported.

      The -w and -t options no longer support the value dbltm.

    • Support utility (dbsupport)   This utility no longer returns information for the SQL Anywhere Replication Agent (dbltm).

    • Transaction Log utility (dblog)   The -g and -il options are no longer supported. See Transaction Log utility (dblog).

    • replicate_all database option   This option has been removed.

    • delete_old_logs database option   This option is not supported for use with Replication Agent.

    • ALTER PROCEDURE statement   The following syntax is no longer supported:

      ALTER PROCEDURE [ owner.]procedure-name
         REPLICATE { ON | OFF }

      See ALTER PROCEDURE statement.

    • ALTER TABLE statement   The REPLICATE { ON | OFF } clause is no longer supported. See ALTER TABLE statement.

  • Executables now respect the user's umask settings when running as a daemon   In previous releases when an executable ran as a daemon (it was started with the -ud option) on Unix, the executable ignored the user's umask setting and called umask(0), which created new files with group+other read/write permissions. When you start a SQL Anywhere 12 executable as a daemon, the executable does not call umask(0) and respects the user's umask setting. Because the current user's umask setting controls the permissions for executables, you should ensure that the user's umask value is set to the desired level before starting the executable.

    This behavior change applies to the following executables:

    • dbeng12
    • dbsrv12
    • dbltm
    • dbmlsync
    • dbns12
    • dbremote
    • mlsrv12
    • uleng12
