 More on Sybase device limits...

As I understand, with ASE 11.5, devices can be as large as 32GB in the Sun
Solaris environment as long as the version of Solaris is 2.5.1 or higher
(according to Technical Library document id 800). We are running 2.5 of
Solaris and have not been able to create devices with ASE 11.5 greater than
2GB. What's different with 2.5.1 of Solaris that allows the larger device
creation that 2.5 doesn't?

Thanks,

Actually, I didn't think you could in 2.5.1 either.  I understood that
we needed 2.6 in order to be able to create devices greater than 2 Gig.

That was my first thought as well, but I've talked to folks that are running
2.5.1 of Solaris and ASE 11.5 and have devices that are as large as 7GB in
size.

I would really appreciate some clarification on this if anyone has the
answer.

The sun web site have a release document for 2.5.1 that runs into 30-40
pages of bug fixes and enhancements. I havn't read it myself :-), but I
know an sa that has (sad people) and he confirms that support of >2Gb
devices has been added.

Hmm, I just checked, and the most recent version of TechNote 800 is not
displaying in the Technical Documents of the TechInfo Library
(http://techinfo.sybase.com). I have notified the support web team and
hope that the problem will be addressed shortly.

Meanwhile,  

So here's the notes for Adaptive Server 11.5.x:
* 32-gigabyte maximum for Solaris 2.5.1, 2.6 on file system.
* Large device support on Solaris has been tested up to 5Gb.
* 2-gigabyte maximum on raw partitions for Solaris 2.5.1, 2.6.

I apologize for an error in my previous posting; it's raw on Solaris
that can go up to 32Gb in Adaptive Server 11.5.x. File system still at
2Gb.

The latest revision to TechNote 800 should appear on the web next week
(http://techinfo.sybase.com).
