The LifeKeeper for Linux Sybase ASE Recovery Kit provides resource protection for the Adaptive Server, Backup Server, and Monitor Server components. However, the Backup Server and Monitor Server components are not required components of a resource hierarchy. The Sybase Backup Server, and the Sybase Monitor Server can be excluded from the resource protection. During the resource hierarchy creation users that do not wish to protect the Sybase Monitor Server, and/or the Sybase Backup Server can choose none for the respective component choices. Selecting none during the GUI resource creation will exclude the selected component from protection in the resource hierarchy. Note: ‘none’ is a reserved word in the Sybase ASE Recovery Kit, therefore neither the Sybase Backup Server nor the Sybase Monitor Server can be named ‘none’.
When choosing whether to protect these components it is important to note that the configuration files that share a common file system with the Adaptive Server configuration files, device paths, log paths, or shared memory directories will be protected by LifeKeeper. If one or more components will not be protected with LifeKeeper, considerations for file placement should be made to prevent sharing between the protected components and the non-protected components.
