 Sybase System 11 on Windows NT 4.0

I'm considering deploying Sybase System 11 on Windows NT 4.0 with a
Dual Pentium Pro 200 machine with at least 128MB of RAM and a good SCSI
disk subsystem.

I'm wondering if there are any 'horror stories' from the field regarding
System 11 on NT. Sybase tells me it will work fine and allow me to replace
the server with System 11 on Solaris at a later time when I need
more horsepower. Is this an accurate assumption?

Also, I currently have a lot of custom code that uses ODBC with a Microsoft SQL
Server 6.0 database. I'm told that the transition to System 11 using the
ODBC drivers will work fairly simply, true?

I'm just curious why you want to convert from Microsoft SQL 6.0 to
Sybase SQL 11 for NT?  For me, I had a SQL 11 for NT with an IVR
(Interactive Voice Response) application in production and pretty
happy with it in general.  Moving to Sun Solaris in the future is very
easy, you only have to pay for the license upgrade though.

Take care...

Did you consider going the way to take you dual PPro machine and run
Solaris/x86 on it ? So you won't have to change your environment when
switching to a bigger machine. Also I consider Solaris2.4/x86 as a really
stable OS. Trying to crash it with a small program that doesn't do anything
but fork and malloc resulted in 300 MB swap and a load of 560 but not in an
OS crash. So you might better ask about Sybase on Solaris/x86.

Martin.

Is system 11 already certified for NT 4.0? Last I heard was that there
were some problems concerning architeture differences between NT 3.51
and NT 4.0... (but please correct me if I'm wrong :-)

Don't know about that. ODBC was designed for these kind of things
("one interface for the PC client"), but reality always seems to be a
little more delicate...

We currently have two large needs for database access, one set from
Windows NT clients with ODBC and the other from Solaris clients with
whatever software is needed. The problem with Microsoft SQL 6.0 and 6.5
for Windows NT is, as I'm told direct from Intersolv...

  "Microsoft has not released the ODBC driver code for SQL Server
   6.0 and 6.5 for them to be able to make the Solaris ODBC drivers
   to access them as a datasource. The newest version of Microsoft
   SQL Server that you can connect to from a Solaris ODBC client
   is 4.2"

Now, I know brother Bill wants Unix to go away and NT to dominate, but
this seems like a poor strategy.

So instead, I can pool everything together in Sybase, which everything
can access and have a better upward mobility path.

Have you trying using visiogenic ODBC drivers. They are available for many
platform for MS SQL server

Last I checked with them they could not connect to MS SQL Server 6.0 or 6.5
either. They can do 4.2 plenty happy!
