5.5.03 or 5.5.04??
I hope this has not been asked to death? But I will be upgrading our test
system from 5.5.02 build 1495 to either 5.5.03 or 5.5.04. First is there
anything in 03 that is not included in 04?
Second, are there any known problems with 04? I'll listen to facts, rumors,
5.5.04 seems pretty stable.

I've just installed the 5.5.04 maint release. On opening my database
(created in 5.5), its properties state that the version is 5.5.03.
As many have no doubt upgraded to 5.5.04, could someone pls advise if
this is 'correct' behaviour?
Many thanks in advance

After installing this EBF we can now start SQLA on Netware 5
we have many troubles! (e.g. stoping the DB-engine can abend the
Netware-Server, sometimes nobody can't login, ...)
Is there any further resolution?
When you have troubles with an EBF you need to talk directly to Tech

JumpStart...Upgrading from 5.5.00 to 5.5.04
I currently have the dubious honour of looking into upgrading our 5.5.00
database to 5.5.04 (the comments I have read in this ng regarding ASA 6
lead me to believe that a greater leap is too dangerous at this time).
Our only previous experience of upgrading the database was a move from
5.0.02 to 5.5.00 which resulted in breaking our accounting module leading
to numerous fixes and costly retesting. The breakages were mainly due to
behavioural changes of the ODBC driver (e.g. in stored procs - not using
the result clause for the column names and types for backward
...Moving from 5.5.00 to 5.5.04
We are making the move from 5.5.00 to 5.5.04 build # 1888 (A little late
but making it none the less). We have been running 5.5.00 from inception
and have been plagued by the missing primary key row problem as well as
some passthrough problems. We have made some PASSTHROUGH changes to the
To be safe, I am planning on removing all pubs and subscribers at each
of the consolidated sights and redoing same after upgrading to 1888.

I have build 1982 of 5.5.04 installed and tried to install 5.5.05 over this
since there were a lot of bug-fixes.
After installation had finished I notised that the installation had not
replaced any files. I suspect the reason is that build 1982 of 5.5.04 has
newer date (sep. 7. 99) than 5.5.05 (july 22. 99).
What is the best version for me to use?
If 5.5.05. is the best version, how should i upgrade?
Thanks in advance,
Yes this is true - we look at file dates
Please backup your software, then install 5.5.04 off your CD, then install

George Hale <firstname.lastname@example.org...dbbackup change from 5.5.04 to 5.5.05
I'm trying to figure out how to adjust my "dbbackup" command script to work
with SQL Anywhere 5.5.05 changes.
Under 5.5.04, the following command would run from either the NT4 server or
dbbackup.exe -c "dbn=dbname;uid=dba;pwd=dba_pw" -d -t -y archive_dir
After the 5.5.05 update, I can only get dbbackup running by adding the "eng"
to the connect string AND only from a client PC:
dbbackup.exe -c "dbn=dbname;uid=dba;pwd=dba_pw;eng=dbserver" -d -t -y
I cannot seem to get the script running on the NT serv...5.5.04 Creates 5.5.03 databases

I suppose you are looking at the version information from sql central. This shows the version of
the db file format. The file format does not change with every release, and in fact did not change
with the 5.5.04 release.
...Patching SQLA 5.5.01 to 5.5.04
Patched all clients and remote sites to 5.5.04, and replication
sometimes halts on the Netware server running 5.5.01. So I need to patch
it right? Okay, How! I d/l the patches for server and Replication but am
not getting anywhere with them: I can't get the setup.exe to point to
the Netware system files area as it asks. No matter what I enter as the
path it will insist on deleting c:\sqlany50\win32! Making no mention of
a Netware area--not even in the setup file.
and ...Run 5.5.00 + 5.5.04 on same server?
Is it possible to run two separate engines of different versions on the same
server? I have a customer that has a third party application running 5.5.00
on Novell Netware. My application has been tested under 5.5.04. The
customer would like each app to run under their recommended configurations,
so he's looking at running 2 instances of the database engine NLM, one for
the third party app and the second for our app. Is this possible, and if
so, are there any issues with the engine being of different versions (they
would be installed to a separate directory on the Novell server, ...SQL Anywhere 5.5.04 and 5.5.05
I have several queries, all of which involve outer joins, that produce
different results when run against SQL Anywhere versions 5.5.05 Build #2787
and 5.5.04 Build #1867. I realize the outer join syntax is awkward and it
does produce an error when run against version 7 of SQL Anywhere. However, I
didn't expect different results within version 5 releases.
I'm going to have the queries reconstructed, but I'm looking for an
explanation on what happened between those two releases. I have scoured the
documentation and release notes for .04, .05, and even the 7.0
documentation....SQL Anywhere 5.5.04 and jConnect 5.5
Does jConnect 5.5 work with SQL Anywhere 5.5.04? I was just
wondering since the Installation Guide for jConnect 5.5
states that Sybase SQL Anywhere 5.5.23 is required. If the
two are incompatible, then what jConnect version will work
with SQL Anywhere 5.5.04 and where can it be downloaded?
Do this search in Google Groups:
"SQL Anywhere 5" jconnect group:*.sqlanywhere.*
