On the Windows NT platform, the Sybase Adaptive Server installation process performs a nearly complete configuration of a companion Monitor Server for Adaptive Server. The installation process:
Copies Monitor Server files from the delivery media to the Sybase installation directory.
Adds Monitor Server configuration information to the NT Registry.
Adds Monitor Server configuration information in the sql.ini file in the ini directory under the Sybase installation directory.
Creates a run server file (a .bat file) in the install directory under the Sybase installation directory. The .bat file contains default start-up parameters.
Executes the installmon script, which inserts the following required Monitor Server stored procedures into Adaptive Server:
mon_rpc_attach – this procedure executes when you start Monitor Server, to attach Monitor Server to Adaptive Server shared memory. The user identified by the -U parameter in the Monitor Server start-up command must have execute permission on mon_rpc_attach.
mon_rpc_connect – Monitor Server executes this procedure when a client connects to it to complete the client/server connection. Users must be granted execute permission on mon_rpc_connect before they can run a client of Monitor Server.
mon_authorize_non_sa – this stored procedure enables monitoring by clients who do not have sa_role.
Creates the “mon_user” account, which is used as the default Monitor Server superuser account in the Monitor Server start-up command.
The next section describes the additional steps that you should perform before using Monitor Server.
