You can accomplish many of the system administration tasks detailed in this book with Sybase Central, a graphic tool that comes with Adaptive Server.
Here are some of the tasks you can use Sybase Central for:
Initializing database devices (Windows NT servers only)
Setting configuration parameters
Viewing the amount of free log space in a database
Generating data definition language (DDL)
Adding remote servers
Creating stored procedures
Adding data caches
Setting database options
Backing up and restoring databases
You can also use the Monitor Viewer feature of Sybase Central to access Adaptive Server Monitor™. Sybase Central also comes with extensive online help.
You can use the Sybase Central DDL-generation feature to record your work to Transact-SQL scripts. The DDL-generation feature lets you save to a script the actions you performed in an entire server or within a specific database.
