I was wondering if anyone knows how to register Sybase SQL Server 11
with SQL Central 2.0. I am attempting to do this so that I can migrate an
SQL Anywhere Database to SQL Server 11. I don't even know if the problem
lies with my version of SQL Central not providing the appropriate
connection, or SQL Server not having the appropriate plug-in for SQL
Central. Does anyone know what I am missing?
Any help would be much appreciated. Below are the two paragraphs that I
found in the help for SQL Central that pertain to the problem.
When I look up info on the plug-in architechture of SQL Central and click
on Sybase SQL Server Release 11 for Windows NT I get:
"This product isnÂt supported in your current SQL Central configuration.
For SQL Central to manage a given database product (for example, SQL
Anywhere), you must install the appropriate SQL Central components for that
SQL Central typically ships with support for one or more database products.
The product components that you received depend on your version of SQL

Sybase Customer Support."
But if when I look at the definition for plug-in module it says:
"A module, stored as a file, that adds support for a specific database
product to SQL Central.
Plug-ins are usually installed and registered automatically with SQL
Central when you install the respective product.
Typically, a plug-in appears as a top-level container in the SQL Central
main window, using the name of the product itself (for example, Sybase SQL

I'll give the general description first, because I'm not completely sure
on the specifics.
When installing SQL Server 11, it has a few DLLs which need to be placed
in the same directory as your install of SQL Central. Then they need to
be registered through the Tools | Plugins mechanism.
The specifics (I think):
I have no idea what all of the SQL Server DLLs are - they are probably
I think you need 'scsyb11.dll' in order to do the plugin registration -
make sure that's in the same directory as the SCView (SQL Central)
Run SQL Central.
Select Tools | Plugins
(find 'scsyb11.dll' and "OK" your way back to SQL Central)
Something like this will do the trick for you.
