The dsedit Server Ping Utility

Use the Directory Services Editor (dsedit) utility’s Server Ping utility to run tests on the Net-Library-to-server connections across your network software. Server Ping reports information about both successful connections and failed connection attempts.

This test is particularly useful when you have multiple server names to identify more than one server in the sql.ini file.

You do not need to have a valid user name on Adaptive Server to run Server Ping.
