Use any of the following methods to install Sybase servers:
Studio Installer – use the Studio Installer to install servers and customize them for a production environment. Fully customizing a server at installation time reduces the need to make changes later. Use this method to license your Adaptive Server optional features during the installation process.
You can access the installation utility syconfig, in the %SYBASE%\%SYBASE_ASE%|bin directory to configure a new server, upgrade your existing server, and change the default language of the server.
Resource file – first, use the Studio Installer to install the server components on to the hard drive, then run the sybatch utility to install Adaptive Server and Backup Server for additional sites that require identical servers. You cannot install Monitor Server and XP Server using resource files.
You can install Sybase software in a NONGUI mode. See Appendix A, “Alternative Installation Methods.”
