Limited options on AIX going from 12.5.0.1 to 12.5.0.3

We find the upgrade options on AIX 4.3.3 and ASE 12.5.0.1 quite limiting and
frankly, just want to hear if anyone else feels such frustration.  Since ASE
12.5.0.3 64-bit requires OS levels of AIX 5.1, we must combine the OS
upgrade with the ASE binary upgrade in one event.  Then there is no easy ASE
version rollback plan, without rolling back OS.  Woo is me.

Hi USAdba,

Actually this isn't unusual for enterprise level software.  Often when 
major enhancements or improvements are made in such a piece of software 
there are issues found during the design or testing phase that requires 
a change in the environment.  Sometimes it is drastic such as an 
operating system upgrade or the hardware itself, other times a few 
patches are all that is needed.

Looking at the certification matrix at http://tinyurl.com/9cz3 (I'm 
using TinyUrl.com to shrink the size of 
http://ohno.sybase.com/cgi-bin/ws.exe/cert/ase_cert.hts), ASE 12.5 32bit 
is certified on AIX 5.1.  This will allow you to do the upgrade in a two 
phase nature...

first upgrade the os and run your current ASE 12.5 32bit  until you are 
comfortable with the os.  Next, upgrade to 12.5.0.3 64bit.  Going back 
to 32bit is easily done, dump the database, replace the 64bit binaries 
with 32bit binaries and load the database.  (note, you can just replace 
the binaries but *I* feel better with a dump & a load)

so, the situation isn't all that bad.  I believe you may actually like 
the changes IBM made in AIX 5.1.

one more thing:  make sure you are current on all your patches: os, ASE, 
and firmware.

hope this helps

Upgrade ASE 12.0/64 bit on AIX 4.3.3 to ASE 12.5.x/64 bit on AIX 5.2
Trying to find what is the supported upgrade path for the above. Going from 12.0/64bit on AIX 4.3.3 to 12.5 (or 12.5.x) 64bit on AIX 5.2. 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 new binary for 5.2. Other than backup the databases and load them to the new server, is there a supported how to upgrade? Thanks! ...

Which Version 12.5.0.3, 12.5.0.4, 12.5.1
We are currrently running 11.9.2 on an old HPUX server (development). We are getting a newer HPUX server and our DBA is asking us which version we should install. It will be a clean install. Are there any major problems we may encounter when the 11.9.2 databases are installed/upgraded to any of the above version. We have numerous stored procs, views and triggers. Once all applications are fully tested, we will be upgrading the production server to whichever version we choose. I hope that made sense. TIA Scott ...

12.5.0.1 to 12.5.0.3 upgrade
We are planning to upgrade from 12.5.0.1 to 12.5.0.3 on Win NT After the upgradation the Sybase service did not start. The error encountered was: "Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in timely fashion" We reverted back to the previous setup and the service started and we could connect to the server. What could be wrong?? Perhaps you could post the Sybase errorlog. You should be able to find it under %SYBASE%\%SYBASE_ASE%\install\errorlog, unless it was given a different name during installation. <Mihir> wrote in message...

A Possible fix for Suse 8.0 and ASE 12.5.0.2 (upgrade from 12.5.0.1)
Hi All, I had a similar problem to what a lot of you were experiencing... with regards to glibc issues with ASE and Suse 8.0, and the server not starting. After a lot of reading up, and running stack traces, and various other things to try and get my ASE 12.5.0.1 esd#2 upgraded to 12.5.0.2 esd#1 (and of course ready for when 12.5.0.3 comes out), I came to the conclusion that the 2.2.5-55 and 2.2.5-158 were both not suitable for running 12.5.0.2 (my 12.5.0.1 worked well tho). I found the following article from SuSe... ftp://ftp.is.co.za/linux/distributions/suse/8.0/unsorted...

Problems after upgrade from ASE 12.5.0.2IR to 12.5.0.3
After running anywhere from several hours to 1 day, CPU utilization goes to 100%. Running "reorg rebuild <tablename>" on the three busiest tables seems to fix, but only temporarily. I'm not sure what to do. Sybase tech support didn't offer much help. I was sent a document stating that 100% cpu utilization didn't necessarily indicate a problem. I'm not convinced that this is true, because the machine never acted this way before, and a quick perusal of the two outputs doesn't look kosher.

Can I go back to ASE 12.5.0.2IR from 12.5.0.3 ?
I'm having some new problems with ASE 12.5.0.3 which I never had before. I've already ran the installmaster and installmsg scripts for 12.5.0.3. Can I restore the 12.5.0.2IR files and go (after a database dump of course) ? Should I re-run the 12.5.0.2IR installmaster and installmsg scripts ? Thanks in advance.
