Hi,

Using NFS I want to create a device on a remote system and create a
database on that, and use that database .
What are the problems that I may face when I do it on :
a) NT
b) Unix

I would be grateful for any views.

Thanks
Ramesh

This is not advised. Problems with the network (even slowness) can
cause ASE to hang or generate tons of timeslice errors or other
problems.

I believe that this will work (technically) but is completely unrecommended
and totally unsupported. One of the biggest problems is that NFS uses UDP,
rather than TCP, which means that applications are expected to deal with
potential packet loss and Sybase definitely does *not*. If you want to use
a database on another server you could consider using CIS, which is built
into ASE 11.5 and above.

If you want some more views on this topic, do to Deja News (or other news
history server) and search from some articles by bret@sybase.com. I
remember reading something from him a while back.
