Has there been any testing done on running Sybase with vmware?

I have recently been looking into vmware. It would be a great advantage to
be able to run multiple virtual machines with Sybase loaded on them. This
way I could test mobilink sync on one physical machine.

However, when I try to start a db in my virtual machine I get an error :
Cannot connect to the database.

I am using ASA 8.0.1.3036

Thanks,

While we don;t explicitly test the environment here, I use vmware a lot when
looking at cases under various Operating systems. It is a very handy tool
for this.

You should have no problem running ASA in a vmware session. FWIW, I didn't
have to do anything special to get ASA working in my vmware sessions.

This is likely a standard connectivity problem unrelated to VMWare.

I guess you might be using NAT or Host-only networking for the VMWare
session. Greg has outlined some very important steps in diagnosing your
issue, but in our working experience with VMWare -- let me say a lot --
Bridged networking makes the most sense in usual situations.

This sounds like a VMWare configuration issue. Are you able to
do any network activity from within your VMWare session (browse
the web, for example)?

What OS are you trying to run in VMWare?

Can you show us the startup parameters you are using to start the
database engine?
