Once you have determined the resources that are available to Adaptive Server and the resources you require, configure these physical resources at the operating system level:
If you are using raw partitions, initialize the raw devices to the sizes required by Adaptive Server. Note that, if you initialize a raw device for Adaptive Server, that device cannot be used for any other purpose (for example, to store operating system files). Ask your operating system administrator for assistance in initializing and configuring raw devices to the required sizes.
Configure the number of network connections. Make sure that the machine on which Adaptive Server runs can actually support the number of connections you configure. See your operating system documentation.
Additional configuration may be required for your operating system and the applications that you use. Read the installation documentation for your platform to understand the Adaptive Server operating system requirements. Also read your client software documentation or consult with your engineers to understand the operating system requirements for your applications.
