    The following is the result of quite a bit of trial-and-error on a contract in Miami a couple of months ago.

    If you don't already have it, you need to obtain and install Sybase's "PC Client," aka "Adaptive Server Enterprise PC Client". In my case, I used ver. 15.7. This software gets installed on the DS job servers. You may want it on your local workstation, too, to be able to roam around in the ASE's data.

    In Data Services, I assume you've created a datastore using DS's native ASE driver. (I.e., don't use ODBC.)

    Find and run the "Open Client Directory Service Editor," one of a slew of gizmos which comes w/ the PC Client.

    Pick "Interfaces Driver" (likely the only thing you can pick). You'll get a blank, intimidating-looking "DSEDIT1" window.

    Right-click in the "Server" pane on the left and select "Add...".

    For the "Server Name," I think it's likely safest & sanest to just use the host name of the server, and suggest you use that.

    Then, you'll have the server you added, on the left, and a grid of attribute-and-value pairs on the right. Modify the Server Address, and you'll get a "Network Address Attribute" window. Click "Add". Select "TCP" as the protocol, and enter the address in the format "hostname, port", as in this example:, 10100

    ASE listens on port 10100 by default, I think, but your system may be elsewhere. For me, the DS datastore then worked just fine.

    Good luck!

      I am facing the same issue while executing the job. Has anyone got a solution? The problem exists even after configuring ASE server in Open Client Directory Service Editor.
