    Note: use most current version (this is from 17)
  2. Copy them to some Windows workstation 64bit set up for the purpose of running DBISQL and install them.
  3. Confirm that you can launch dbisql to connect to the database.
  4. To start dbisql:  Go to c:\asa\bin64 and run dbisql

    zman dgc
  6. Get the user (zenadmin) and password
  7. In dbisql set the username, password, host and port like the screenshot below (using the password returned from zman above, and the host as your primary server, same port 2638)
