Configuring another Monitor Server

You can use the Server Configuration utility to configure a new Monitor Server on your machine. To start the utility, choose Server Config from the Sybase folder or execute syconfig.exe from the bin directory under the Sybase installation directory.

Although the Configure Sybase Servers dialog box lets you provide an Adaptive Server name when you configure a new Monitor Server, the name that you provide is not used. Instead, the system uses the value of the DSQUERY environment variable as the Adaptive Server name.

To work around this problem, you can change the value of DSQUERY before configuring the new Monitor Server, or you can edit the NT Registry and the Monitor Server start-up .bat file after configuring the new Monitor Server.

To change the DSQUERY environment variable:

  1. From the Control Panel, open the System icon.

  2. In the dialog box, highlight DSQUERY in the list of system environment variables.

  3. In the Value box, change the value.

  4. Click Set.
