    Unanswered: v12.0.. NT Install?

    Hi, i downloaded the 12.0 trial from the sybase site and began installing it... however, i've got to a paoint where it asks for an expire date, software version and expire date...

    Where do I get these from? What do I do now?

    I just want to give the system a test to see if its worth porting my site over to it,

    thanks all.

    As long as you're not doing anything crazy with it, it will be pretty tame. When it's idle it takes up virtually no resources and as long as you manage your indexes correctly (e.g. HAVE indexes ) it shouldn't eat up too much CPU.
    Thanks,

    Well, the only website and book that I use are the Sybase-sponsored manuals at:
    http://manuals.sybase.com/onlinebooks/group-as/asg1200e

    There are a couple 12.5 books which are currently slated to be released in like 4 or 5 months; the latest books I've seen in stores cover 11.5 or 11.9.2.

    A couple useful links:
    http://www.mbay.net/~mpeppler/linux.html - ASE on Linux
    http://www.edbarlow.com/ - "The site for Sybsae Tools, Links, and Whatever"
    http://www.sypron.nl/ - "Sybase Tools and Documentation by Rob Verschoor"; this has "The Complete Sybase ASE Quick Reference Guide" for ASE 11.9.2 and 12 -- I own it and it's incredibly useful.
    http://www.isug.com/Sybase_FAQ/ASE/ - "The Sybase FAQ"
    http://freshmeat.net/projects/phpsybaseadmin/ - PHPSybaseAdmin (a port of PHPMyAdmin for MySQL)

    The only two books I ever need to use are the Sybase books and Rob's Quick Reference manual (which I purchased and is incredibly useful.)
    Thanks,

    Matt

    Also, if you're looking for help on newsgroups look at comp.databases.sybase. Also load a new server into your newsgroup viewer of "forums.sybase.com" and you can sign up to the sybase.public.* newsgroups (ASE is 'sqlserver').
    Thanks,

    Matt

    Hi Matt, thanks for the quick replies.

    Can you provide some ISBN numbers for the books you have? Also, if you have any SQL only books too...

    I get an e-mail each time and since I'm usually on my computer...

    "The Complete Sybase ASE Quick Reference Guide" is:
    ISBN 90-806117-1-9

    You can buy it for 17.99Euro here: http://www.sypron.nl/cgi/shop/shop.cgi

    For Sybase T-SQL your best bet is to use the online T-SQL user's guide at:
    http://manuals.sybase.com/onlinebook...eric__BookView

    I think you can purchase the books as a hard-copy if you want; although I think they're great online (especially with the ability to search) so I wouldn't buy them.

    For a hard-copy of advanced T-SQL (albeit MS SQL Server specific) I'd reccomend:
    "Inside Microsoft SQL Server 7.0" (Microsoft Press; Soukup & Delaney):
    ISBN 0-7356-0517-3
    I'm sure Inside MS SQL 2000 would be great as well, although 7.0 T-SQL is closer to Sybase's T-SQL since SQL Server 2000 has a bunch of new things like OLAP and such.

    Two other general DB books that I like are:
    "Database Systems: A Practical Approach to Design, Implementation, and Management" (Connolly & Begg):
    ISBN: 0-201-34287-1
    and
    "Database Systems: Design, Implementation, and Management" (Rob & Coronel):
    ISBN: 0-7600-1090-0
    Thanks,

    Matt
