Interfaces File Considerations

The Sybase ASE Recovery Kit uses the Sybase ASE interfaces file for the detection of the client IP addresses and ports. This file is located under $SYBASE, and is typically called interfaces. This file is updated whenever an Adaptive Server, Monitor Server, or Backup Server instance is created using the srvbuild or similar configuration utility. The LifeKeeper for Linux Sybase ASE Recovery Kit requires this file to exist with entries for each Sybase ASE component to be protected. Comment lines are not allowed. All server names that appear in the interfaces file must be resolvable to a valid virtual IP address. All servers that will protect the Sybase ASE resource hierarchy must be able to resolve the server names that appear in the interfaces file. In addition, it is recommended that the virtual IP address be used instead of the server name.
