Sybase licence and VCS configuration

Hello,

We have configured the sybase database  instance under VCS,  but binaries are installed on shared drive as well.  When it comes to sybase licence, database team generated using hostid.  If we want to share the sybase licence between both nodes,  is there an option?

 

  • If you want to have one licence for both nodes, then this is a question for Sybase.  Even if legally Sybase say you can have one licence, the Sybase code may still need a licence based on hostid, so if the licence key file is on shared storage then easiest option is to create a symbolic link to local storage.
