Nice, the First Part is concluded

Now, go to SAP Sybase IQ 16 server:

1 .- Configure the interfaces file:

  1.1 .- Add:


        master tcp ether 1054

        query tcp ether 1054

2 .- Into Sybase Central or SCC:

  2.1 .- Add the Remote Server:


  2.2 .-This is very important step, because if there is not EXTERNAL LOGIN the connection do not reach the MSSQL.


  2.3 .- As we configure this server like an SAP SYBASE ASE SERVER (ASEODBC), we can not doing a test connection, it do not ping the target. It is OK.

  2.4 .- To make a real test, we must execute an insert location in this way:



{select * from dbo.a};

We need to have a dba.a table exactly as into MSSQL a dbo.a table.

With this we finish the configuration.
