Using dsedit or dscp to create a master interfaces file

You can use the dsedit or dscp utility to create a master interfaces file, which you can then distribute to all servers. If you are not an experienced Sybase user, you may find that using dsedit or dscp is easier than using a text editor. Using dsedit or dscp also ensures that your interfaces file is consistent in format.

To create a master interfaces file with dsedit or dscp:

  1. Select the interfaces file that contains the most complete, up-to-date information.

  2. Begin a dsedit or dscp session in your latest Sybase installation to edit this interfaces file.

  3. Add entries for any Adaptive Servers or Backup Servers that are not listed in this file.

For details on using these utilities, see the Adaptive Server Utility Guide.
