DS 4.2 with Sybase ASE as local Repository: missing connection string

Hi All

We install data services 4.2 on a Redhat 6.5 system.

The repository DB is an ASE 15.7 on the same host.

By the installation came the question where is the Local Repository Location.

Repository name for CMS registry


Please specify the Sybase ASE install location 'SYBASE'

[/sybase/ASD ]

Please specify the Sybase OCS 'SYBASE_OCS'

[OCS-15_0 ]

Database server name


Database port

[5000 ]

Database name


Sybase connection string

[ ??? ]

User ID




For my it is not clear what is the 'Sybase connection string'

Has anyone an example for me?

Regards Stefan

    Hi Stefan Zumbühl,

    Go to the Sybase ASE client installation location and check the ini folder. In the ini folder , you can see the file called sql.ini. There you will see the service name with combination server name & port number as Manoj mentioned in the above post . Give the service name in the connections .

    The file looks like below .




    In the above example BISERVER1 is the service name or connection string name. 172.16.xx.xx is server IP address and 6000 is the database instance port number.

    Thanks & Regards,
