I am attempting to upgrade from Appeon 2.8 to 3.1. I am having issues with
getting EAServer Manager to start. I have found the following in the
Troubleshooting Guide.
========================================
7.2.1 Cannot start EAServer Manager
Fail to start EAServer Manager.
Cause: EAServer Manager will not start when the CLASSPATH and/or PATH system
environment variables are too long. The EAServer batch files (serverstart.bat,
jagmgr.bat,
etc.) configure the CLASSPATH environment variable. The Appeon installation
program
adds several entries to these path variables, which can make it too long for
EAServer
Manager to handle on some system configurations. When the CLASSPATH variable is
over
260 characters, the batch files may fail, preventing EAServer Manager from
starting properly.
Solution: There are three workarounds, the user can select one:
1. Usually the EAServer installation path is “C:\Program Files\Sybase\EAServer”.
If the
path is shortened (for example, "D:\EAServer"), the CLASSPATH variable length
will be reduced.
2. Use the Control Panel to edit the user and system CLASSPATH variables, and
remove unnecessary entries:
Step 1 – In Windows launch System Properties from the Control Panel and navigate
to the Advanced tab.
Step 2 – Click Environmental Variables, and find the CLASSPATH variable.
Step 3 – Edit the CLASSPATH variable and reduce the length of the string to less
than 260 characters.
It is recommended that you backup the Variable Value for the CLASSPATH before
modifying the variable, as this allows you to restore it later.
Step 4 – Restart the computer.
3. Create a batch file for setting the CLASSPATH to include the necessary
classes:
Step 1 – Create a batch file called user_setenv.bat in the EAServer bin
directory
(%JAGUAR%\bin). %JAGUAR% indicates the EAServer installation directory, for
example, C:\Program Files\Sybase\EAServer\.
Step 2 – In this file, set the CLASSPATH to include only those classes that you
require and that are not added to CLASSPATH in EAServer batch files.
==============================================
Now this information is good. However, I cannot find ANY documentation as to
what files are actually necessary. Can anyone tell me what is necessary?

Hi Kristi Nelson,
 
In the user_setenv.bat file you should add the following command lines.
 
set EAS_BOOTCLASSPATH_P0=%JAGUAR%\java\lib\easldap.jar
set CLASSPATH=%JAGUAR%\java\lib\appeon_server.jar;%SYBASE_SHARED%\PowerBuilder\pbjdbc12.jar;%JAGUAR%\java\lib\pbjdbc12.jar;%JAGUAR%\java\lib\xerces.jar;%CLASSPATH%
set BOOTCLASSPATH=%JAGUAR%\java\lib\appeon_server.jar;%SYBASE_SHARED%\PowerBuilder\pbjdbc12.jar;%JAGUAR%\java\lib\xerces.jar;
 
Please remember to add the corresponding JDBC driver files in the command lines base on the database used.
 
Regards
Sally Li
