Looking for a *FREE* Sybase SQL Server Database for Production, Development, Testing or whatever you want to do with it?

UPDATE 4/10/2013:

SAP/Sybase has made it known that they will not be distributing Sybase SQL Server 11.0.3.3 for Linux.  So, if you still need it, you will need to look elsewhere.  If you need to ask me where to look, I can’t help ya.  Arh matey

Sybase graciously still allows us to download SQL Server (since renamed ASE) 11.0.3.3 for Linux… for FREE:

The current version (ASE 11.0.3.3 ESD#6) package is different from previous distribution of ASE 11.0.3.3. The

Sybase

new package separates ASE and OC/OS SDK. Also OC/OS is now available for Alpha platform. You can also find FreeBSD version of the package. Intel, Alpha and FreeBSD releases differ only in packaging and they are all built from the same source.

Software is FREE for development as well as Deployment.

Adaptive Server Enterprise 11.0.3.3 ESD#6 for Linux runs on Linux systems with Kernel 2.2.12 and glibc-2.1.2-11 installed. Verify that your system meets the hardware/software requirements before installing the software.

ASE 11.0.3.3 Linux download and install instructions from Europe site.

  1. Update: Sybase has prevented the software from being downloaded by removing the files. Please send an email to sales@sybase.com requesting the software be made available for download again.

    Do you know of any free downloads to recover a data dump from Sybase Solaris SQL DB 11.0.3.3?

    1. You would have to contact Sybase TechSupport who will refer you to Sybase Professional Services.

      If you have a backup of the original Sybase SQL Server 11.0x, 11.5x 11.9.2.x or 12.0x software, you should be able to load it. I don’t believe 12.5 or higher can read an 11.0x dump file but I might be wrong.

      You might be able to find the old software on eBay or some other auction site.

    We have been running 11.0.3 in production on Red Hat Linix since 2003 and currently deploy with RHEL 5 2.6.18-238.9.1.el5 #1 64 – we have over 800 sites installed

    We have hit a snag with RHEL 6

    2.6.32-71.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed Sep 1 01:33:01 EDT 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    – sybase will start, but consistently throws 629 errors – an example is:

    Fatal attempt to delete clustered index entry for page 9084 – index row contains page 2078 – referenced by index page -653740268

    When we attempt to drop procedure sp_thresholdaction sybsystemprocs

    the value for the index page is immediately suspicious

    using trace flag 3602 to provide stack trace for errors gives this:

    we do not see any change to the layout in shared memory as we had with prior releases

    any help and/or suggestions would be much appreciated

    BTW when we try to startup with -X option we throw
    ERROR: ld.so: object ‘/usr/local/lib/libc.so.6’ from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.

    and sybsae will not start

  4. David Taylor says:

    in order ot get 11.0.3 to run under RHEL 6 looks like we need to run sybase in chrooted jail environment to pickup the earlier libraries we managed to get working on RHEL 5

    glibc-2.5-49.el5_5.7

    we have 11.0.3 running fine under RHEL 5 with 2.6.39-1.el5.elrepo

    I came across post in

    http://froebe.net/blog/2006/12/11/ase-125x-64bit-and-ase-15-fail-to-start-using-glibc/

    that describes exactly what is needed in our situation – thanks Jason!

    if anyone else is interested in running 11.0.3.3 on newer bersions of RHEL let me know and I will share our HOWTOs
