If I know the host name/IP address of a ASA9 database server, is there a
clean way to discover the name of the database server (ENG) running on the
host (so that I can use the ENG to make a connection)? I can always parse
dblocate.exe (slow) result if there is no quick approach to do so. Thanks.

Incidently, dblocate can now take a host or IP address to limit what it
searches (or displays).

Adaptive Server Anywhere Server Enumeration Utility Version 9.0.2.3365
Usage: dblocate [options] [hostname|IPAddr]

Thanks. It works great. Just dblocate still takes about 4 or 5 seconds to
figure this out.
