Unanswered: Why it takes a long time on Windows 2000 server?
I think I need help! I tried to install Sybase 12.5 on a testing server: P4 1.6G/512M/40G. The system is: Windows 2000 Advanced Server SP3 (English version), IE 6, InocuLAN (anti-virus software from CA).
Everything was fine except the installation took a long time (more than 8 hours). The following is from the install log:
Two steps consume most of the time:
A 7:23PM SQL command: create database sybsystemprocs on sysprocsdev = 120
8:56PM Created database 'sybsystemprocs'.
B 8:56PM Executing SQL script 'c:\sybase\ASE-12_5\scripts\instmstr'
4:09AM Task succeeded: install system stored procedures.
However, In Windows NT (with the same installation CD, on the same machine), it only takes 10 minutes to complete the installation.
A 3:08PM SQL command: create database sybsystemprocs on sysprocsdev = 120
3:09PM Created database 'sybsystemprocs'.
B 3:09PM Executing SQL script 'D:\sybase\ASE-12_5\scripts\instmstr'
3:13PM Task succeeded: install system stored procedures.
