Help With ASE Encryption


Hello friends,

Can anyone out there tell me or point me to information on how to set up the ASE_ENCRYPTION option for version 15.7?

I have an existing ASE installation for testing purposes. I want to install the encryption option there but I cannot locate any

step-by-step documentation on how to do that. The ASE 15.7 Encrypted Columns Users Guide simply states:

"Install the license option ASE_ENCRYPTION. See the Adaptive Server Enterprise Installation Guide."

and when I go to the ASE Installation Guide it refers me to the SySam User's Guide...

and when I go to the SySam User's Guide it gives no instructions on *how* to install the encryption option.

So, to summarize:

1.) Do I need to generate a license file that includes the ASE_ENCRYPTION option and start ASE with this license file? I was

told by someone at SAP that there should be a way to get and use this option for thirty days (grace license) while we test

and evaluate.

2.) If above is true, will this work with the Developer's Edition of ASE or do I have to get a Enterprise Edition SR or SV

license? (By the way, I do have an available SV license for Enterprise. I generated the license file and it shows that this license includes

a package of Components= ASE_CORE Options=SUITE)

Any help with this will be appreciated.
