We have a few hundred users who currently have an ASA 5 database on their
laptops. We are going to use MobiLInk to synchronize data on these laptops.
To do so, we are going to upgrade each users database to ASA 8.0
In Sybase Central there is the "Unload Databse" feature for copying a DB
schema and data. Also when I connected to the 5.0 ASA DB from a 8.0 ML
server a wizard kicked off that walked me through a DB upgrade.
Here is my issue. The above mentioned procedures are fine for individual
databases, but we need to roll this out to hundreds of users.
Is there any standard process or upgrade scripts available to automate an
ASA DB upgrade? Is there any documentation or examples of this? This seems
like an issue that would come up fairly often.

Take a look at the dbunload utility and the -an switch. It should give you
the functionality that you need.
You may want to post any follow up questions to the
sybase.public.sqlanywhere.general newsgroup which is more specifically
focused on ASA.
