First time post here in DB Administrators, so please be patient.

In the past long time ago I was working with Sybase SQL Anywhere on Windows. There I got the actual server, ISQL utility, and a little GUI application called SQL Central, which helped managing the database I was working for in the GUI mode.

Couple of days ago, I installed "big" Sybase - version 16 SP02 on Linux. To my surprise I saw only the server itself and the ISQL utility. No SQL Central or an application of that nature. Going thru the docs, I also didn't see anything.

Now my question is: is SQL Central an outdated software? Or maybe it is only supplied with SQL Anywhere? This utility was very helpful and I was even running ISQL from it if I needed to run some queries on the DB

I don't mind just using ISQL but that application was very helpful.

Thank you for any hints you can provide.

Sybase Central is no longer provided in the new ASE versions. With ASE16 SP02, you can use ASE cockpit instead.


  • thank you for the info. Does it have the same interface or is it different?
