Hi,

Does Sybase RA for MS-SQL support for 64 bit MS-SQL ? I am
considering to migrate my MS-SQL Server from 32 bit to 64
bit. I could not find any information about 64 bit support
for MS-SQL's RA 12.5.

Do anyone have the answer for this issue ?

Regards,

Paul Wang

Hi, Paul,

We have not tested against a 64-bit MS-SQL. Typically, the difference
between a 32-bit application and a 64-bit application is the additional
address space that it has available to it which increases performance and
scalability. This should have no direct effect on external applications
(such as RepAgent) that communicate with it.

In Microsoft's document about choosing an appropriate edition of MS-SQL
http://www.microsoft.com/sql/techinfo/planning/ChoosEd.doc, they mention
that the 64-bit version is intended for the Itanium-based servers. At this
time, RepAgent has not been certified on that platform. However, RepAgent
can run on a different machine than the one on which the database server is
running.

Thanks,
Wanda
