SAP ASE 16 Sybase ASE Installation and Configuration Part 1. To Learn or Teach Linux visit www.theskillpedia.com, A Marketplace for Learners and Trainers.
Sequence 1 . Prepare the Operating System
1. Disk Space : A full installation needs approx. 1.5 Gb so 4 Gb should give you enough room to handle upgrades too. In this case we install the software in /opt/sap. Database files will be stored /var/sap.
Add a group “sybase” and a user “sybase” to the system. Also create the needed directories.
useradd -d /opt/sap sybase
passwd sybase
mkdir -p /var/sap
chown sybase:sybase /var/sap
2. Enable the operating system to allow more than the default value for shared memory.
Add following line to /etc/sysctl.conf
kernel.shmmax=4294967296
Now Issue the Command
# sysctl -p
3. Install 32 bit libraries
When installing Sybase ASE 64 bit version on Linux, you need to install the 32 bit shared libraries as well. This will prevent problems when running isql or bcp.
yum -y install libX11.i686 libXtst.i686 gtk2.i686 glibc.i686 libgcc.i686 webkitgtk.i686

Save the Commands listed in Next Three Steps (4,5 and 6) in /etc/init.d/rc.local

4. Create Raw devices from the Partitions (Create Necessary Partitions before performing this)
Sybase recommends to store all database files on raw devices except for temporary databases like tempdb.
# raw /dev/raw/raw1 /dev/sdb1
# raw /dev/raw/raw2 /dev/sdb2
# raw /dev/raw/raw3 /dev/sdb3
# raw /dev/raw/raw5 /dev/sdb5
# raw /dev/raw/raw6 /dev/sdb6
5. Change permissions on the raw devices…
# chmod 600 /dev/raw/raw1
# chmod 600 /dev/raw/raw2
# chmod 600 /dev/raw/raw3
# chmod 600 /dev/raw/raw5
# chmod 600 /dev/raw/raw6
6. Change ownership on the raw devices to sybase…
# chown sybase:sybase /dev/raw/raw1
# chown sybase:sybase /dev/raw/raw2
# chown sybase:sybase /dev/raw/raw3
# chown sybase:sybase /dev/raw/raw5
# chown sybase:sybase /dev/raw/raw6

We shall be using
/dev/raw/raw1 master (100 Mb)
/dev/raw/raw2 sybsystemprocs (200M)
/dev/raw/raw3…
