Using dbtran to view log

Hello, I am having a very confusing time working with dbtran. I want to use it just to view contents of the current server log, and I can't get it to work.

This is what I'm trying:

dbtran -c "uid=XXX;pwd=XXX;DSN=IQ_server;eng=IQ_server;dbn=IQ_server" -n log_output.txt

I get SQL Anywhere Log TranslationUtility Version 16.0.0.808 and the prompt comes back instantly. No file is created. 

Why is it not working?

Thanks,

Former Member

Try without DSN.

If the IQ server is in local machine:


dbisql -c "uid=XXX;pwd=XXX;eng=IQ_server_name" -nogui


If the IQ server is in remote machine, specify its hostname and port number:


dbisql -c "uid=XXX;pwd=XXX;eng=IQ_server_name;links=tcpip{host=<hostname>;port=<port#>}" -nogui



In OS console execute utility below to list servers running and broadcasting in same network:

dblocate -d
