Hi

On ASE12.5.4 what is the limit for config option "number of
devices"? I thought it was greater than 256 but cannot find
the documentation to confirm
Msg 5846, Level 16, State 2:
Illegal value specified for configuration option 'number of
devices'. The legal values are between '1' and '256'.
(return status = 1)

For pre-15 ASE dataservers (eg, 11.x, 12.x) the limit is 256.

For ASE 15 the max number of devices is 2,147,483,647.
