SQLAnywhere service creation on Windows server


In some cases Business Objects SQLAnywhere service is not created after installation on Windows.


There is some issue while install the BO packages so it needs manuall install afterwards.


Run below in CMD:

dbsvc -t Network -s Automatic -as -sn "SQL Anywhere for SAP Business Intelligence" -sd "Provides the CMS repository and auditing database for SAP Business Intelligence" -y -w "SQLAnywhereforBI" "D:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\sqlanywhere\bin64\dbsrv17.exe" -n BI4 -x tcpip(PORT=2638;DoBroadcast=NO;BroadcastListener=NO) "D:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\sqlanywhere\database\BI4_CMS.db" "D:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\sqlanywhere\database\BI4_Audit.db" -o D:\SQLAW.log
