Hi,

I need to put a Sybase Client on a Windows NT Server that
has SQL Server 7 on it. Will there be any compatibility
issues? Will the Sybase client step on any toes with SQL
Server?

Thanks,

Mark

Hi Mark

Note that Sybase Open Client and SQL Server 7 have utilities with same
names, for example isql and bcp, maybe some others too.
It may lead to some conflicts, especially if you run isql or bcp from
command prompt. In this case, you should always verify which isql/bcp
you use. If you want to be sure that you are running Sybase utilities
and not MS ones, you can run %SYBASE%\SYBASE.bat at the beginning of cmd
session, this will ensure that Sybase directories appear first in %PATH%.

Another workaround is to install Sybase software under different OS user
and move the relevant content of %PATH% environment variable (and maybe
some others) from "System variables" to "User variables" section. Then,
Sybase and MS SQL will not conflict because they will not appear in
%PATH% together, provided that you use each of them with the right OS user.

Hope it helps
