For a list of platforms that can run the Relay Server and a list operating systems that it was tested on, please refer to this document.

The MobiLink server communicates with the consolidated databases through an ODBC driver. The ODBC driver may not be available for some consolidated databases on some platforms. The consolidated database and MobiLink server are not required to run on the same platform. Provided the consolidated database is running on a supported platform as specified by the database vendor, and the MobiLink server is communicating with the consolidated database using a supported ODBC driver, this is considered a supported MobiLink server configuration. The following table lists the platforms that can run the MobiLink server for supported consolidated databases.

For more details about the ODBC drivers, please refer to the document Recommended ODBC Drivers for MobiLink.

Compatibility with existing Sybase Central software

  • Full support - The SQL Anywhere plug-in for Sybase Central fully supports any database created by version 10 or later software running on a version 10 or later server. For example, version 10 databases running on version 10, 11, or 12 servers; version 11 databases running on version 11 or 12 database servers; and version 12 databases running on a version 12 database server.
  • Unload/reload-only support - For databases created by version 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9 software running on a version 6, 7, 8, or 9 database server, you can connect to the database from the SQL Anywhere plug-in temporarily to do one of the following tasks:
    • Unload the database into a reload file.
    • Unload and reload the database into a new version 12 database.
    • Unload and reload the database into an existing version 12 database.

The files for the database being unloaded must be located on the local computer.

  • No support - There is no support in the SQL Anywhere plug-in for databases created by version 4 or earlier software running on a version 5 or earlier server.
