I have, what i hope, are two relatively simple questions/problems.
First, these situations occured after deleting the 4.9.2 client s/w and
installing the System 10.0.2 client s/w fresh. The clients are OS/2 2.x
and 3.x (Warp) systems with netbios and tcp/ip running over token-ring.
1. The client ISQL doesn't appear to work any more. I receive the following
error message upon failure:
Operating System Error:
There is no OS layer error
Specified server name attribute could not be found.
Note, the server names (and access methods- IP vs. NP) are defined in
both the OS2.INI (via the 4.9.x WRITEINI.EXE utility) and also in the
SQL.INI (via the 10.0.2 SQLEDIT utility).
2. As I implied above, we've used the 10.0.2 SYBEDIT tool to add our
servers to the SQL.INI. As part of that, we indicate whether they are
to be accessed via IP (in which case we provide IP address and Port #)
or via Named Pipes (in which case we provide machine names). However
I am finding that even though my applications can get to the IP databases
just fine, SYBPING does't seem too. I get an error message saying that
it couldn't "resolve the host name - error is 0."
Can anyone shed some light on either, or both, of these situations for
me? Please? :)
