|Operating system requirements for Linux|
|x86_64 processor (Intel Xeon with EM64T)||Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.0 (Santiago) • kernel-2.6.32-71.el6.x86_64 • glibc-2.12-1.7.el6.x86_64 • compat-glibc-2.5-46.2.x86_64||At least 1GB|
|x86_64 processor (AMD Opteron or Intel Xeon with EM64T)||SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 (x86_64); version 11 patch level 0: • kernel-22.214.171.124-5.1 • glibc-2.9-13.2||1BG|
Required libraries for Linux
Required X/Motif-related RPM package
These files should be compatible with RHEL5.3 or later.
|Linux Disk Space Requirements|
|Product||Linux X64 Requirements||Linux X64 PSeries Requirements|
|Adaptive Server typical installation||921MB||1092MB|
|Default databases created during installation||306MB||164MB|
In addition, there is a known OS kernel bug in scheduling threads in RHEL 6.0 that has been
fixed in RHEL 6.1; for this reason, Sybase recommends that you use 6.1.
Linux 64-bit x64 system memory requirements are:
• MinimumRAM required for AdaptiveServer, with defaultstack size, packetsize, and user
log cache size – 127 MB
• Minimum RAM per additional user – approximately 324KB
• Default user stack size – 128KB
3) Software & Installation
Downloaded the product from SPDC or SAP Service Marketplace, go to the directory where you extracted the
installation image and start the installer:
Note : Before you can install a 64-bit Adaptive Server version 15.7 ESD #2 to a Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 6.x x86_64, install the 32-bit GNU C Libraries package (glibc-2.xxx.xx.el6.i686.rpm). Each operating system has a default maximum shared-memory segment. Configure your operating system to allow the allocation of a shared-memory segment at least as large as the maximum memory value.
Log into OS level in Linux and use x-manager or other tool to launch the GUI wizard
