 OS Buffering

If I create a symbolic link to a raw device  and use
that link in my init command, will sybase still treat
that (my link) as a raw device and not do any os buffering?
Are there any other implications?

SQL Server just does an open on the file name specified in sysdevices.
If that is a symbolic link then it will be expanded and the new
name used. So as far as the server is concerned it is a raw device.

As far as I know there are no other implications.

By the way, on Solaris at least, the entries in /dev/rdsk are symbolic
links to the real device entries anyway.

Cheers,

Pete.
