Hi,

The install is running almost 3 hours and I copy the log as for the moment, at the end of this post.

I am trying to install SAP-ASE 16 SP2 on an Acer laptop Aspire V 15 Nitro with OS Microsoft Windows 10.

Intel Core i7-5500U 2.4GHz / 8GB DDR3 L / 1TB hard drive.

It is for evaluating and eventually developing a system (free install).

I left almost everything as default including 4k page size and only raised the device size of master and sybsystemprocs, rising the size of the corresponding databases too.

Did the same with tempdb, but I think I am stuck in an endless loop with almost 95 character set installations.

The previous attempt where I also changed the language and the character set, ended up in the same problem and I aborted it (yesterday).

I searched the posts with “install”, “character” and “ASE16sp02” tags not finding anything similar. I skeemed the first 6 pages of posts not finding anything related, but obviously not all the pages.

Regards,

Thomas Magdahl

      Hi Michael,

      It seems I require a SAP service Marketplace password, but I am a free SAP ASE user based on an evaluation and development “agreement”. Anyway I imagine it has no solution yet? Would you recommend to go back to a previous version of ASE?

      Regards

          You can also install the ASE with the default character set as mentioned and localize it after it is built.  This might be your best solution for now until SP03 is released.

          You should localize the server as soon as it is finished building, to change character set and sort order before adding any databases and data.  This is documented in the System Administration Guide – Volume 1

          http://help.sap.com/saphelp_ase1602/helpdata/en/a7/99cc61bc2b10149e7e81955d9173a8/content.htm

          Although it may have changed in ASE 16 (can’t find the section in 16 docs), the following link in the 15.7 documentation also discusses how to fix the indexes in each database when the sort order has been changed as well.

          http://infocenter.sybase.com/help/topic/com.sybase.infocenter.dc31654.1570/html/sag1/sag1526.htm

          This should also be done before creating any databases or loading them, especially if you are moving to case-insensitive sort orders on existing data.

          Also – please start a ‘Discussion’ in the future for questions, instead of a ‘Blog Post’ 🙂 .

            Hi Chris,

            Thanks for your help!

            At least I got it installed.

            I was going to start a Discussion first because it was the only option I saw, but I hessitated because I didn’t considered there was something that had to be discussed, and just after that I saw the hiperlink for the Post that looked to me more adequate. As a matter of fact, at first I got the impression that there was a hierarchy between both, so that a Discussion would have Posts in it, but when I opted for the Post it never asked or seemed to indicate for what default Discussion it would be associated.

            For me it is still not obvious that my problem was solved by a Discussion, unless I missed a link where that was clarified and if so, my apologies. 🙂

            Thanks again

            Thomas

            Hi Chris,

            I have to confess I just found the link describing how to use Discussions, Posts etc.

            Still Discussion is a bit missleading, because the least I wanted was to get into a disussion 🙂 .

            My problem is solved, so thanks for your help.

            Regards

            Thomas
