This course is designed for  administrators beginning their adventure with Sybase database. We assume, you don’t know Sybase and you didn’t work too much with Linux. It is good if you have some experience with other database systems, however even without that knowledge you should still be able to understand the course.

Sybase database is known as well as  SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise. It is used in very specialized implementations, where stability and performance counts the most.

Course begins with some practical manuals allowing to build your own test environment. The next phase is Linux installation and it’s initial configuration, so you should be able to install Sybase in next steps. Installation finishes with the test procedure allowing to verify whether the server is correctly installed.

In the following lessons it will be presented what configuration files Sybase uses. You will also develop your own script allowing to start and stop the SAP ASE server.  You will learn how to configure the operating system to start and stop the database automatically when server boots.

In next lessons you will learn about configuration files like: interfaces file, network interface configuration. During this process you will see how to solve some problems that may appear during installation.  You will get familiar with the errorlog and sp_configure procedure.

This course is available only in English. Each lesson ends with a short quiz and a lab.
