Before you begin installing additional Adaptive Servers in a network system, the license manager must be installed and running on the license host. To verify that the license manager is running, see “SySAM administration”.
To install Adaptive Server on secondary servers, you need to have your Sybase License Certificate available. Also, you need to know:
The host name of the license host.
The port number on the license host where the asset manager listens for connections.
The asset management software installation directory on the license host.
When installing Adaptive Server on secondary servers, the license manager prompts you for licenses after the installer has installed the products on to the hard drive.
The license manager prompts: “Do you have Sybase Software Asset Management Certificates to register?”
Next, it prompts: “Have you registered Sybase Software Asset Management Certificates at a central license host?”
Enter the following information about the license host from which this machine will be checking out Adaptive Server licenses:
License Manager Host is the host name of the license host on which you installed the asset management software.
License Manager Port is an unused port number on the License host. The local Adaptive Server uses this port number to contact the primary network node when checking out licenses.
Continue with the installation procedures described in Chapter 4, “Installing Sybase Servers.”
See the Chapter 6, “Installing Sybase PC-Client Products” if you need help configuring client products.
