My McAfee virus/hostile activity software will sometimes flag sybjsvc.exe
and dbsrv7.exe as conducting possibly suspicious IP traffic.
The McAfee notice will display when I start dbsrv8.

What part do sybjsvc and dbsrv7 play when I am running dbsrv8?
Can I stop sybjsvc and dbsrv7 from loading without causing a problem?

Thanks,
Doug

As far as stopping those go, I haven't heard why you need to run them
yet. Should I assume iAWS with a deployment license?

But DBSrv8 doesn't depend upon them [by itself]. A remote server
and set of proxy definitions could be pointing to the version 7 server
but I am assuming you'd know that.

. . . BUT . . .

You are probably running the network license manager service; the
"Sybase EP Management Agent" which is required for production
deployment of iAWS (normally) and any other Sybase products that
include EAServer. That list includes the installs for iAWS, EAStudio,
ASE 12.x, Enterprise Portal, and many others. Either way for
a deployment license you will need that service.

Most products that install EAServer also start a dbsrv7 server for
configuration, repository and often demo purposes. You might need
dbsrv7 for that reason.

As far as suspicious IP trafficking goes . . .

DBsrv8 will search to find other servers which DBsrv7 will respond
to. Since this search includes broadcasts and/or UDP communications
that is likely part of this. It could also be due to the nature of our
discovery process which happens when a client tries to connect [which
could also be due to remote server connections coming from the ASA 8
server].

I can only assume the license manager responds in a similar fashion.

If it happens to be tied to that, you may be able to quite this activity
down by adding network communication parameters. If the ASA
clients are stimulating this behaviour (highly possible) then they too
may need extra comm. params also.
