    Unanswered: DB Library & Sybase 12.5

    People

    1) We have some binaries compiled in 32 bits plattaform which use DB Library in order to access the database. Now we are planning to update our database to Sybase 12.5 (64 bits) under AIX 5.2 (64 bits) and I wonder if our binaries will work correctly ....

    2) I heard that there are compatibilty problems with the DB-Library and the Sybase 12.5 ... is it true?

    OS AIX 5.2
    DB Sybase 12.5
    Library (DB-Library)

    Thanks a lot!

    AFAIK: Client even in 12.5 still is 32 bit, as there is currently no 64 bit client ws out in the market...

    and we experienced : you can access with a 32 bit client to a server 12.5 64 bit version (our is Sybase 12.5 64 bit sun solaris 5.8 64 bit)

    DB-libs work fine with 12.5. Although on AIX 5.2 you might find some issues and need recompilation. This due to platform compatibility is broken between AIX 4.3.x and 5.x

    Do you think that is possible to have a 32 bit - box (AIX 4.3) using the DB-library in order to connect to other box with a Sybase 12.5 (64 bits)?

    Thanks!!
