Dump/Load (from ASE 12.5.4 to ASE 15.x) - VS.
We are in the process of planning the upgrade of our ASE
12.5.4 dataservers to ASE 15.x. What is the most
recommended way to upgrade ASE dataservers from ASE 12.5.4
to ASE 15.x?
1) Install new instances of ASE 15.x and load database
dumps from our ASE 12.5.4 dataservers to the newly installed
ASE 15.x dataservers.
- OR -
2) Use the ASE upgrade utility (sqlupgrade) to upgrade our
existing ASE 12.5.4 dataservers to ASE 15.x.

I'm in the process of creating a roll-back / contingency /

Just a quick note to confirm my understanding of the below

If I put AIX 5.2 , the dataserver binary of 12.0 will not work which is used
during the upgrade.
If I put 12.5.x on 4.3.3, the dataserver binary will not work beacuse it is

Other than backup the databases and load them to the new server, is there a

I'm currently working on a ASE 15 upgrade project (upgrading
from ASE 12.5.x). I'm trying to decide what version of ASE
15 we should upgrade to.
What are your thoughts? Which version is the safest bet
(ASE 15.0, ASE 15.0.1, ASE 15.0.2, ASE 15.0.3 or ASE 15.5)?
Which ASE version is considered, at this time, the most
mature and reliable version (i.e. with the least amount of

Can anyone point me to a statement by Sybase that ASE ODBC Driver 15 will
work with ASE 12.5.x databases? I'm under the impression that it is backward
compatible but I will need to install the 15.x cataloging stored procedures
in the 12.5.x servers to allow MS Access / Excel / Query type users to work.

I have to return to ASE 220.127.116.11 from ASE 12.5.2.
I created a new server and did a dump/load of a user database and
that seems to be fine.
Is this a safe way to downgrade ?
Is it necessary to create a new server (master database) or should it
also be possible to shutdown the 12.5.2 server and start it again with
the 18.104.22.168 binary ?

Also, we will be upgrading AIX to 5.1 as well.
Any advice is appreciated.
It will work, however you wont be able to use any of the 12.5 new datatypes,
and the rep_agents will spit out annoying error/warning messages everytime
they are restarted. Our production system has been running that way for

Take a look at the release bulletins and installation guides for your
platform. These are the first steps to any upgrade.

...ASE Migration From ASE 11.5.1 (NT) to ASE 12.9 on Win2003.
Need help to find Sybase's upgrade and migration docs on
ASE 12.9? Currently, no released versions of ASE are certified on Win 2003.
ASE 12.5.1 will be certified when it is released later this year.

What are the steps to upgrade from 12.5 32bit to 15.0 64bit

I'm currently planning to do an upgrade in place from ASE
12.5.4 to ASE 15.0.3 using sqlupgrade(res) utility.
Does it just run the installmaster and instmsgs.ebf scripts
Will I have to manually run the rest of the scripts i.e.
installsecurity, installdbccdb etc.?
Also in ran the preupgrade program against my old server -
the main errors it came up with were:
Stored Procedure '' uses deprecated builtin functions as:
'rowcnt', which should be changed to 'row_count'.
It doesn't show the stored procedures name - has anyone had
this problem ?
