Running Server Ping

You can test the connections to any server that has a name in the sql.ini file on your client, as described in “How a client accesses Adaptive Server”.

  1. Start dsedit.

  2. Select the directory service to open from the Select Directory Service dialog box, and click OK.

    The Interfaces Driver dialog box for the server appears.

  3. Select the name of the server to test from the list of server names.

    The server information displayed depends upon the specific Net-Library driver that you have installed.

  4. Select Server Object/Server Ping.

    The Ping dialog box appears.

  5. Click Ping to test the connection.

If Server Ping makes a successful connection to the server, a message indicating the success appears in a dsedit dialog box. A successful connection indicates that you have properly configured your Adaptive Server for network access.

If Server Ping reports an unsuccessful connection to the server, see “Troubleshooting connection failures”.
