The mount and unmount Commands

The mount and unmount commands make it easier to move or copy databases.

You can move or copy a database from one SAP ASE to another without restarting the server (as opposed to dump and load database which copies the database to tape or disk). You can move or copy more than one database at a time using the mount and unmount commands.

You can also use these commands to physically move the devices and then reactivate the databases.

Warning!   Direct mapping to a login name is not maintained within a database in SAP ASE. This means that, for every login allowed access to a database on the original SAP ASE, a corresponding login for the same suid must exist at the destination SAP ASE.

For permissions and protections to remain unchanged, the login maps at the secondary SAP ASE must be identical to the files on the first SAP ASE.
