I set up Sybase Enterprise on a NT system, but I have a bcp from the
unix world. Everytime I try to load the database into the NT system it
constantly messages me that it could not connect to SYB_BACKUP. Another
question, my system doesn't have to be configured exactly like the unix
sybase database to make the transfer does it? Any help with this would
be greatly appreciated.

Install the Backup server too.

Run it along with the Sybase Server and then bcp in the data.

See if this works.

The backupserver is not part of bulk copy, that is for dumps, if you are
trying to load a database dump from unix save yourself the trouble it won't
load on NT.

You will have to use DDL and then bcp, Sybase Central is included on the
client CD so you can use it to reverse engineer the database. You could
also use CIS and proxy tables or replication but these are mildly more

bcp is in one of 2 places depending on your version

if version is 11.x


else if version is 12.x
