Running Server Ping

Use Server Ping to identify more than one server in the sql.ini file from many.

You do not need to have a valid user name on SAP ASE to run Server Ping.

  1. Start dsedit.
  2. Select the directory service to open, and click OK.
  3. Select the name of the server to test.

    The server information you see depends upon the specific Net-Library driver that you have installed.

  4. Select Server Object/Server Ping.
  5. Click Ping to test the connection.

If Server Ping makes a successful connection to the server, a message indicating the success appears in a dsedit dialog box. A successful connection indicates that you have properly configured your SAP ASE for network access.
