Sybase’s Backup Server for Linux (64bit) is broken :(

Apparently v12.5.3 esd 7 64bit on Linux has a problem with the backup server. It throws a signal 11 and dies. Nice feature, huh?

The problem is that esd 7 introduced a 64bit backupserver binary and still uses the old compat-libcstd++-5 library. The 64bit version of the library is somewhat flakey. Using the 32bit binary from esd 6 is the workaround (make sure to include the esd7 version of sybmultbuf too).

UPDATE!

The workaround is to set LD_POINTER_GUARD to 0 in the RUN_<SERVER>_BS file just prior to the backupserver command line.  Now, Sybase fixed the ASE binary (dataserver) atleast for the 12.5.x codeline but missed the backupserver and sybmultbuf (64bit versions).

 

UPDATE #2!

According to Sybase Techsupport, the problems with GLIBC 2.4 will be fixed within ASE 12.5.4 ESD #6!  Cool
