Rep Server 12.5 -> 12.6 Upgrade
I am scheduled, as part of a big upgrade, to upgrade Rep Server from
12.5 -> 12.6. From what I know I need to do this:
1) Shutdown Rep Server 12.5.
2) Point to the new Rep Server 12.6 directories/environment variables.
3) Run rs_init and choose to upgrade an existing Rep Server.
Is that about it?

We are planning the upgrade of our ASE 126.96.36.199 64bit on AIX
4.3.3 to ASE 12.5 64bit on AIX 4.3.3. We are also using Rep
Server 12.1 with these two servers. My question is do I
need to upgrade Rep Server as well, or will 12.1 Rep Server
Work with ASE 12.5.
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

This should be no problem at all -- the different versions I mean.
If your questions aims at explaining how replication actually works and how
to set it up (i.e. not version-specific stuff), then I recommend you read
the docs at sybooks.sybase.com/rs.html.

Linux RH kernel 2.2.18?
If so, have you had any problems?
Did you use raw devices or files for your stable queue devices and what

Are there any issues with running Repserver 12.5 against
ASE 12.1 in a warm standby setup ? We have installed
the REP-12_5 binaries, but encounter the following error

need to install the 12.5 Open Client also ?
Any help gratefully received!
yes, rep 12.5 needs the 12.5 OCS libs they are on the CD with the repserver

We've recently upgraded to ASE 12.5.3 and since then we've
had a few occasions where dump tran processes have hung .
This then stops any subsequent dumps not to work and the
tran log fills up. This has only happended on the the server
that holds the RSSD for our replication server running on
the same box.

Sybase even still support RS 11.5?
If you are going to take advantage of any of the new ASE 12.5 features then
you will have to use RS 12.1 in order to replicate things like Java
